Why Isabelle Messier chose Eygalières

In fact, we have not bought the house, we built it. My wife is Architect, I'm Engineer, we both love Provence and we decided with the combination of our competencies to build a typical Provencal Mas. We did it with our Heart for our future of our family and we decided to rent it for a certain period to partly absorb the costs. We have chosen to make the construction with stones, woods from the area. Often our Customers are telling us that this Mas Picholine is 'Authentic'. On the other side, you will get all the comfort of a modern house with very high standards. Why this area : as described in the website, you have great opportunities in this Provence area with St Remy de Provence (VanGogh, Glanum archeology, artist town...), Avignon town, Nimes arenas, Alpilles wonderful hills, famous provencal markets, olives trees... And a nice weather a large part of the year.

What makes this house unique

I think that's better to provide you comments from Customers; I advise you to look at feedback from 3 of them : 1) USA/ Chicago Customer - new year 2009 Gilles and Isabelle, We had a wonderful time at your home. The place was wonderful and surpassed our expectations. The town of Eygalieres was a great location at which to tour much of Provence. In addition, M. Maya was extraordinarily helpful. You are lucky to have someone like him to assist you with the house in your absence. It was a wonderful get away to welcome in the new year! A bientot, Kathleen and Dan 2) USA / New York Customer - Aug 2009 Dear Gilles, Thank you for the gift bag! We are having a great time at the Mas.. It is fantastic in every way! The house is magnificent. The pool and gardens are perfect. The children are having a great time and have been reasonably well behaved. We only have one issue : we wish we had reserved for a longer time! We would gladly stay a second week if it was not already booked. Perhaps we will be back next year! Danika. 3) France Customer - May 2009 Très belle maison en provence : rate 5/5 Nous avons passé un séjour parfait dans cette maison au mois de mai 2009. La maison offre un très grand confort - elle est récente et très bien équipée (intérieur et extérieur). Bonne localisation: à quelques minutes (en vélo ou voiture) du centre d'Eygalières et au calme. Grande piscine et superbe jardin. Les propriétaires sont très sympathiques et disponibles pour répondre à toutes les questions et demandes des locataires. Gaelle.
