Eygalieres villa description
Comfortable cottage in the heart of Eygalieres; one of the most beautiful old villages in Provence.
CENTRAL LOCATION WITHOUT THE HASSLE OF WORRYING ABOUT WHO'S DRIVING HOME AFTER AN EVENING OUT!
The cottage is independent and private.
Air Con, English TV, lounge, 1 double bedroom,1 shower room, fully fitted kitchen, enclosed private garden. Cot and highchair if required.
The villa is a very short stroll from cafes, restaurants, bakeries, grocery stores, a newsagent, pharmacy and gift shops and the wonderful market every Friday morning.
Eygalieres is officially designated one of the most beautiful villages in France and dates back to pre Roman times. The oldest, fortressed area of the village is located on the hill overlooking the famous Alpilles (little Alps), that dominate this area of Provence. The village street meanders gently down the hill, lined with charming old stone houses and gardens with rambling roses and gnarled old vines. The village is a mix of old Provence and cosmopolitan sophistication. There are simple corner cafes and up-market restaurants and a wonderful market every Friday. It's a delight to stroll up to the 9th century church on the hilltop, then pick up a newspaper (English, French, American etc.) and a baguette on the way down before taking a coffee and ice cream, then wandering home. This really is a lovely village with great walks and stunning rural surroundings. All the delights of Provence are within easy reach by car. Including St Remy, Les Baux citadel and Van Gogh memorial.

A perfect retreat in the heart of Provence
A perfect retreat in the heart of Provence
Our trip to Eygalieres was wonderful. We stayed in this delightfully peaceful villa which was very comfortable and only a minutes walk into the centre of the village and most importantly - the bakery! Everything you could need was provided. If you fancied a night in and a break from eating out or the weather was disappointing you had a full range of kitchen equipment to cook, there was English TV, a DvD player with DVD's as well as books and cards. After plenty of sightseeing it was lovely to return to the villa and relax in such idyllic surroundings. That said, if you fancied a meal or drink out you could just as easily walk round the corner to the local Tabac or wine bar. Everything was so easy! Eygalieres is a beautiful village at the foot of the Alpilles mountains. We really enjoyed the abundance of colour and the richness of the land. There are so many walks to do that we will return as soon as possible. The market on Friday was packed full of wonderful food and drink. The people were really friendly and we were made to feel very welcome. Locally we loved visiting the quite trendy town of St Remy. It was only a 10 minute drive so quite easy to get to and there was so much to visit and see. Overall, we loved being at this property. It was really quiet but you weren't too far from the local shops and market. We both felt very relaxed and happy while staying here and felt that our batteries had been fully recharged on our return to the UK. We can't wait to go again and I've already recommended the villa and area to a number of family and friends.

This cottage is so cute! Sweet kitchen, beautifully tiled with all you need and pretty little sitting room, tv, books and films if you want. The bed is comfortable which is always a bonus. I loved waking up in the morning with the shutters open and letting the sun in, such a good start to the day. Off the bedroom is the shower room which is modern and spotlessly clean. Decoration overall is Provencal and tasteful. There is a small courtyard garden which is completely private and colourful with pretty planting and an imaginative way of keeping the grass from frying in the hot sun. The outdoor space has a built in bar-b-que but we didn't try it; I've been to Eygaliere many times and it is a joy not to have to walk far to buy the mornings croissant and papers. There are several restaurants in the village and the bars are good for coffee and food as well as drinks. Likewise it is a joy not to have to drive home after a few drinks.

Charming Villa in Provence
Charming Villa in Provence
We had a fantastic experience. The villa was perfect for our family of three. It is spacious and has a lovely garden. Eygalieres is a charming little village with bakeries and restaurants within a short walk. It is in a great central location to see the sites of Provence. The owner, Karen, was extremely helpful in suggesting places to visit and was immediately responsive to any questions. I highly recommend this property.
