Eygalières has several wineries so you will enjoy trying these wines with meals or as an aperitif. Their rosés are especially good.
You may even enjoy visiting a few wineries near by, or elsewhere.
The famous Southern Côtes-du-Rhône vineyards of Châteauneuf-du-Pape are only 45 minutes away, and Gigondas, Cairannne, Vacqueryas and
Beaumes-de-Venise just a little farther. What about taking a guided wine tour and learn about the best the region has to offer?
The inviting 11.5 x 5.0 metre heated swimming pool. The cool fresh waters, the colours, the aromas, the natural beauty
and the privacy are so appealing in summer. All a stone's throw from the kitchen/fridge/ice/chilled wines.
Should all of this look just TOO laid back, then you could take a brisk walk or jog into Eygalières (the usual 15-20 minute stroll could be cut in half!),
rent a bike and then peddle off around the area, choosing the trails between the vineyards and through the olive groves, or take up the
challenge of cycling the famous Mont Ventoux, about an hour away by car.
All this exercise will help build an appetite for dinner at one of the excellent bistros in town.
There are tennis courts in the village, racquets are at the house. All entirely up to you ... which is what holidays in Les Alpilles should be about.
The outdoor kitchen and dining area can be used most of the year, even at lunch in winter.
Eygalières is especially lively on Friday mornings because there is an excellent small market, with higher end goods than in many other markets.
Wednesday is market day throughout the nearby town of St. Rémy-de-Provence, with its much larger market.
Both are wonderful markets, both very different from each other and both well worth a visit. Once you see the great local produce available
at the markets you will be happy to be able to cook and eat at home.
The arched French doors lead out from the sitting room to this comfortable sitting area covered by a tarpaulin-covered pergola.
The aromatic lavender, rosemary, thyme and more, all well suited to the sunny climate of Provence, fill the senses. Be sure to use them in your
cooking. In all seasons the covered or open terraces and the huge covered but open summer kitchen and dining area, provide an extension
to the living areas and provide a choice of where we'd like to be.
The opposite view of the dining room, with the kitchen behind. Notice the barred window in the kitchen, and compare it to the same window
in the photograph below. Located next to the kitchen there's a gas barbecue in this covered dining area.
On the ground floor you will find this double bedroom with a queen (160cm) sized bed and it's en-suite shower room with two sinks,
shower and w.c. Double French doors open from the bedroom to the terrace and garden. The reading lights are excellent,
and the room has plenty of hanging and drawer space.
With polished wooden floors and gentle colours, this bedroom is wonderfully private, spacious and comfortable.
Also on the ground floor is a bedroom which houses three single (90cm) beds. These can be left as single beds, or two can be made up as a
king (180cm) sized bed. So depending on the configuration of adults and children, family/friends, the rooms can be adapted to suit.
The double, en-suite bedroom on the first floor is again furnished with a 160 cm queen sized bed, good reading lights and good hanging space.
The polished wooden floors are warm, the decor relaxing, with plenty of space to move around.
The en-suite shower room for this bedroom has a large shower, two hand basins and w.c. Plenty of space for your personal bits and pieces
and room to manoeuvre towels and the hair dryer without a problem!
