                                Our family (3 adults, 2 teenagers) enjoyed an all too short week here. Flying in from the US there were high expectations and we weren't disappointed. This is a beautiful old house with thick walls ie. it stays cool on the hottest days and no need for air-conditioning. We greatly enjoyed the "golf course" including golf ball hide and seek (an unintended side effect of poor golfing,) the tennis court and the pool. The house is clean and well equipped although not modern so everything is well used but in good working order. It's physical location just outside Eguilles is good for quick visits in for bread, croissants etc. There are major tourist locations fairly close by but we mainly enjoyed hanging out at the house, preparing delicious meals, reading our books, and sharing the beauty of the countryside. We would recommend a visit here and thank Traudi and Hens for sharing their home.

                                Recommended for: Age 55+, families with teenagers, sightseeing, romantic getaway.

                                A great stay for families Review Submitted: 30 August 2010Date of Stay: July 2010 We had a great two week stay in Mas des Lavande with 6 adults and 6 young children. Gorgeous swimmingpool, great tenniscourt and very helpful owners and staff (twice a week!). The area is beautiful, with lots of quaint little villages and towns, with little churches and typical French markets. Lots to see and do, even canoeiing. Would recommend it. Recommended for: Age 55+, Girls Getaway, Sightseeing, Families with Teenagers, Families with Young Children Owner's Response: In fact that time there have been too many people in our house, but the children were very good and happy and this is important for us. A little artist(4year) made the most fantastic dog with large teeth and other artistic work. Rating 4 out of 5

Should we contact you direct or go via the agency again?

Een fijn huis op een heerlijke plek, prachtig zwembad en de tennisbaan was ook een mooie bonus. Af en toe wat last van de wespen, maar dat mag de pret niet drukken. Ik zal uw huis van harte aanbevelen aan vrienden die eventueel ooit uw kant op willen komen.

The tennis court was a great addition. The sofa room upstairs is probably best suited to children. The guardian and gardener were both charming and helpful and the village of Eguilles is close enough for the more energetic to jog out for the breakfast croissants. Recommended!

                              Owner info

                              Year Purchased: 2012

                              About the owner: We are Europans and lived in several cities in Europa. Before we came to France. We lived more than 10 years in Munich and now we are already over 10 years here in Eguilles.

                              Why the Owner Chose Aix en Provence:
                              Because our children were taught French at school we decided to spend our summer vacation in Sanary sur Mer, several years in a row.. When the retirement come up we wanted to spend more time in this area but closer to an important city. This resulted in our present wonderful country house in Eguilles: practically next to Aix en Provence, the most sought after city in France.

                              The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
                              Self-catering rental, spacious villa sleep 10 with lots of sports opportunities The country house is close to everything...and far away from everything. You walk out the property along the vinyards for hours without seeing a soul, while being in 10 min. in Aix, 30min. in Marseille intern. Airport , Aix TGV, downtown Marseille , beach or mountains. Our house is surrounded by oak trees, beautiful lavander-field , orleanders and roses. Facing due south, the architect-designed house has a very large living room and wide sliding doors that opens up to the flowered terrace and outdoor dining areas. Our tennis-court is protected against wind and you can play all year round.The 5 hectare totally enclosed grounds has a amateur 3 hole golfgreen (astroturf/plastic) with 9 tee offs from the rough ground ( par 4: 236 m ), a full sized professional, hard surface tennis court, a swing; the swimming pool is an impressive 15 x 4 m with diving board and an isle is separating an additional shallow area. By the swimming pool with the 'summer kitchen' there are several cozy sitting areas and sunchairs. There is a vineyard and a fig tree with a never ending supply of figs. Sorry,no pets allowed. No smoking inside the house, please. Children are welcome and love it.
