We rented the house for a special occasion with our family and were delighted with the choice.
The location is superb out in the country but is still easy walking distance to town (more for adults than young kids according to my wife but I thought fine for all). We loved walking around the grounds (a very big garden), the large swimming pool (long enough do proper laps which was a bonus!) and how amazingly well equipped the house was (4 coffee machines including a nespresso). Outside dining areas worked well and we never actually dined inside. François was great. He helped us find a local taxi, a bike hire place in St Remy and when we needed help (electric gate tripped in a major storm) he came within minutes to open the gate.
We based our booking on previous reviews and I am delighted to say the house lived up to what we read.
Our three generation family of 10 stayed here August 2014. Our host could not have been more helpful and attentive. Our trip there was uneventful until we tried to get through Eygalieres during their summer fair and bicycle race with all kinds of detours. François came and led us home St Bernard style. And the house-fully equipped kitchen, well furnished bedrooms and common areas. And the grounds-herbs for the picking, fruit for the harvesting. And the area-come on, this is Provence, if you don't want to move here you're not paying attention. St. Remy, Les Baux, Avignon, Arles....
8 adults stayed here for a week after we had just celebrated a family wedding. We were delighted with it from the moment we arrived - secluded road, secure entrance, large spacious property beautifully appointed. Garden was full of wonderful surprises - fresh fruit ready to be picked and eaten! The pool was fabulous - large, clean, and plenty seating around it with a wonderful unspoilt view of the Alpilles in the distance. Easy walking to the village along a flat , straight tarmac road - plenty of fantastic small restuarants there, and small local shops. The village market is a favourite of ours - one of the best we have seen. The house was so comfortable- very clean, but also very spacious and homely. So may things to make it feel like a home - not a holiday house! Well appointed kitchen , laundry, sitting room. All rooms were light and airy and tastefully furnished with the addition of a selection of books, games, tv, computer points etc. We used the outside eating area every day , and there was a choice of an electric, or charcoal barbecue. I could go on , but really hope that I have made it abundantly clear that we absolutely loved this house! We would go back in a minute!
Our family stayed here for one week. The house has a great garden and pool with wonderful views of the Alpilles. It is extremely well decorated and furnished, the main bedroom is a delight. it had everything we needed, with, at last, enough loungers and outside seating for everyone! it is secluded, but within walking distance of the delightful village of Eygalieres. We enjoyed ourselves so much here we didn't go out a great deal. Francois was extremely helpful, suggesting a restaurant in the village where we had a memorable meal. we rent villas every year for an extended family holiday and voted this our number one so far.
My family of 6 adults had a wonderful stay at this villa. Home is maintained well and I couldn't have asked for more. It is even more beautiful than the pictures show. Francois was very helpful and accommodating, always available for any concern. His family was so kind to keep our extra rental car for a week while we traveled too Italy for our next destination. We look forward to returning to this beautiful little town and villa.
Our group of 10 adults thoroughly enjoyed our 1-week stay at this delightful villa. We are 5 Canadian couples, enjoying food, wine, hiking, and cycling. All of our desires and interests were met in this lovely rental property and its surroundings. The home itself is very well appointed and maintained, and it was sparkling clean for our arrival. All five bedrooms are comfortable, air conditioned, and have en-suite facilities. The indoor and outdoor seating areas were very much enjoyed, as was the outdoor dining table. The gardens and pool were beautiful, and the private nature of the property was an added bonus. We considered the location ideal. The village of Eygalieres is a gem, and boasts a very good butcher, bakery, restaurants, etc. There are of course many appealing day trips in this region…local markets, hiking trails, cycling routes, and wine tastings were all enjoyed in close proximity. The owner Francois is accommodating, helpful, relaxed and congenial. He is a rich source of information regarding the area, and is very motivated to ensure that the holiday is a success. Our group, all experienced travellers, agreed that our choice of this villa was superb. We would recommend it unconditionally, and look forward to returning ourselves.
