Owner info

Year Purchased: 1994

About the owner: We have been living in Eygalieres for 20 years. We lived in this house for fifteen years, and are now renting it and welcoming visitors from all over. We have had many American renters, all very happy with their stay in the house and in provence.

Why the Owner Chose Eygalieres:
The weather is marvelous. Eygalieres is in the center of Provence and is a beautiful, typically Provencal village, fashionable yet small enough to be quaint. Saint Remy, a beautiful and fashionable town with plenty of bars and restaurants is fifteen minutes away. Walk it's old streets, admire the architecture, and discover the birthplace of Nostradamus. Twenty minutes away is l'Isle sur la Sorgue, a marvelous town and its renown antique shops A mere half an hour away is Avignon with its renown summer Festival d'Avignon, and the Papal palace dating from when the Popes settled in Avignon. Forty five minutes away is Aix, the famous university town.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
The house and its surroundings is amazingly quiet and peaceful, with great views of the Alpilles mountains and countryside. Yet, the village of Eygalières and it's shops and restaurants are barelly five minutes away. You can take a pleasant ten minute walk from the house to the Saint-Sixte Chapel, an icon of Provence. On fridays, you can go to the Eygalieres market and savour local specialties, admire local crafts or just take in the old world atmosphere. You will find traditional markets in neighboring towns on every day of the week. You will find a great butcher in Eygalières, two excellent bakeries, a great grocery store with great produce, a pharmacy, post office, doctors, dentists, book store, bistros, cafés and restaurants and more, all five minutes away.
