This is the view of the house when you arrive. Taken from the parking area, it shows how close the property is to the famous Alpilles range of hills that dominate this area. The large olive grove is extensive and backs up into the Alpilles.
There is a jogging path at the end of the property on which you can walk to the village in 30 minutes.
The grounds around the property have been planted to great effect. The use of lavender, olive trees, cyprus and pine give a natural Provencal feel, but in an ordered, structured manner. Paths of lawn and bleached gravel make their way through the lush growth.
This room is dedicated to cinema lovers. It's located in the basement so sound insulation is good. It's also lovely and cool, so a refreshing place to get comfortable. The satellite dish has a news service which captures a wide range of 60 channels, including BBC, ITV, Sky News, CNN, etc (but not the Sky Movies and Sky Sports).
Set in the heart of the carefully planted garden, this stunning 15 x 5 metre heated swimming pool awaits. The pool has a retractable cover, and is surrounded by terraces and lawn; to the left of the photo there is another very comfortable outdoor seating area. With plenty of comfortable seating, a pergola covered area providing shade for the dining area and views to dream of, this is the perfect place for the whole family to relax and enjoy one another's company.
The master bedroom has a double bed and it's own sitting room which opens out directly into the garden. It of course enjoys its own bathing facilities, as do all the bedrooms. This bedroom is in the bungalow, just across from the main house.The sofa in the foreground is a sofa bed, which can sleep 2.
This photograph shows one half of the property, the other part (containing 2 en-suite king size bedrooms) is situated to the left of this picture, the other side of the covered walkway. All bedrooms have their own bathroom.
The village of Eygalieres, located in the Alpilles, is a jewel of Provence but one that is easily overlooked due to the plethora of towns to visit in the area. The village is surrounded by the superb landscapes of the Alpilles, with olive groves, green valleys and vineyards. This small village is home to well- heeled vacationers, as well as French film and tv stars and other high wattage glitterati. However the town has retained its old style ambiance, which is one reason it is so attractive to visitors.
