- About The Experience
The beauty of the French countryside is on display at this newly restored stone villa and guest house nestled amidst a forest olive and almond trees. This is a lovely location for an intimate family gathering, wedding or other special celebration. Guests may enjoy alfresco meals on the patio, swimming in the heated pool, walks to the nearby village and trips to the many wonderful towns of Provence.
- Location Description
The villa is a short walk (800 m) to Eygalieres, where quiet cafes and Michelin-starred restaurants line the small street in the village center. Those who wish to walk to Eygalieres can follow the small road near the villa or the somewhat steep (but still navigable) dirt path near the road. Supermarkets can be found in nearby Saint-Remy-de-Provence, about 15 minutes away by car. Saint Remy is the most famous town of the Alpilles and has excellent shopping, cafés and restaurants, and a wonderful outdoor market on Wednesdays. Saint Remy is about 75 km from Marseille International Airport. Avignon, with its theater festival, art galleries, cultural events and gastronomic restaurants, is within an easy drive.
