The farmhouse is located on the foothill of the Alpilles, a small mountain range now a Natural Park. The beautiful and lively centre of the village is only a short walk away on quiet lanes and offers many bars, restaurants, shops and boutiques. The market is held there on Friday morning.

St Remy de Provence, home of Van Gogh, Nostradamus and the Glanum Roman ruins is only 15 min away.

The charming and historic towns of Avignon, Arles, Nimes and Aix are a short drive away. Isle sur la Sorgue and its permanent large antique market is 30 min away.

The Camargue (with wild black bulls, horses and flamingoes and beaches) is about 1.5 hour away.

You can enjoy golfing, horse riding and walking in the Alpilles. The many vineyards in the vicinity will make you discover their wonderful wines in style. Plenty to see and do but, yet again, the wonderful feeling of the house might make you want to just stay and relax.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: We are an English/French family with three children who have spent their childhood at the Mas de la Plume. We absolutely adore Provence and Eygalieres in particular. There is so much to do and discover in the area that we always experience something new, yet it is always so good to come back home where the heart is. We lived at the farmhouse about a third of every year and always had such a fabulous time whatever the season. Now that the children are leaving the nest, we have decided to share our pleasure with our guests.

Why the Owner Chose Eygalières, France:
We fell in love with Eygalieres and the Alpilles a long time ago and I was used to hiked in the Alpilles with my family. Mas de la Plume is our "maison de famille" and very special to us because it is in a quiet location in the country with beautiful views but not isolated since it is only a short walk away from the village to enjoy all what it has to offer (shops, bars, restaurants, weekly market).

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
We love the farmhouse and believe that our care shows in all the details that create its true charm. It was conceived first and above all as our family home and we hope that you will enjoy it as much as we do as it is a very special place to relax and have a true provencal experience. Our family and friends always comment about how relaxed and content they feel here and how difficult it is to leave.
