Perks for the Parents

With a very private pool and gardens with views set in arguably the prettiest village in Provence, this enchanting house in Eygalières oozes bohemian charm. It sleeps up to 13. In fact, it’s 2 houses side by side joined by a Provençal patio, which makes it ideal for 2 families or a family and grandparents travelling together. There’s even a third cottage in the garden for an additional 4 guests, so everyone has their own space. Dine together outside in the evening on the patio overlooking the beautiful gardens and mountains, or wander down to the village where you’ll find a plethora of restaurants, bars and cafes to choose from.

Why Kids Love it

Kids will love the boules pitch here where they can while away a happy hour or two. The gardens have nooks and crannies and endless opportunities for play and there’s a hammock for snoozing. In nearby St-Remy, kids will have fun following a Van Gogh trail and exploring the Roman archaeological site of Glanum. For family days out, visit the Camargue (45 minutes) to see white horses and flamingoes, or go to Avignon (30 minutes) to take the famous road train across the city and visit art galleries and cafes.

Style Notes

Bohemian rhapsody. Inside this beautifully rambling house you’ll discover stone walls that keep out the heat, vaulted kitchens, quirky bathrooms, large table for family feasts and comfortable living areas. Vintage pieces and modern furniture sit side-by-side. Huge old fireplaces, paintings and velvet sofas mix create a relaxed ambience. There are many spots everywhere to curl up in the shade with a book. We love the exposed rock, wooden beams and secret passages and the gorgeous pool area where you can sunbathe privately in the pretty, fragrant Mediterranean gardens.

Eygalières, Provence

Medieval ruins and market stalls

This pretty village in the heart of Provence is perched in the northern Alpilles mountains and has medieval ruins along with shops, restaurants and bakeries. On a Friday, market stalls selling local produce line the stone streets and draw in plenty of local visitors. It’s a charming little village and is in a great location for exploring the area, with Avignon, Arles, Aix, Saint Remy and Les Baux de Provence all under hour’s drive away.
