About Janette Rapaccioli

We have been living in Eygalieres for 20 years.

We lived in this house for fifteen years, and are now renting it and welcoming visitors from all over.

We have had many American renters, all very happy with their stay in the house and in provence.

Janette Rapaccioli purchased this villa in 1994

Why Janette Rapaccioli chose Alpilles

The weather is marvelous. Eygalieres is in the center of Provence and is a beautiful, typically Provencal village, fashionable yet small enough to be quaint.

Saint Remy, a beautiful and fashionable town with plenty of bars and restaurants is fifteen minutes away. Walk it's old streets, admire the architecture, and discover the birthplace of Nostradamus.

Twenty minutes away is l'Isle sur la Sorgue, a marvelous town and its renown antique shops

A mere half an hour away is Avignon with its renown summer Festival d'Avignon, and the Papal palace dating from when the Popes settled in Avignon.

Forty five minutes away is Aix, the famous university town.

What makes this villa unique

The house and its surroundings is amazingly quiet and peaceful, with great views of the Alpilles mountains and countryside.

Yet, the village of Eygalières and it's shops and restaurants are barelly five minutes away. You can take a pleasant ten minute walk from the house to the Saint-Sixte Chapel, an icon of Provence.

On fridays, you can go to the Eygalieres market and savour local specialties, admire local crafts or just take in the old world atmosphere. You will find traditional markets in neighboring towns on every day of the week.

You will find a great butcher in Eygalières, two excellent bakeries, a great grocery store with great produce, a pharmacy, post office, doctors, dentists, book store, bistros, cafés and restaurants and more, all five minutes away.

Wonderful house, great location and huge garden

  • 5 of 5

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.

Perfect Holiday Home

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of 9 staying at this most wonderful villa. It's location was fab being walking distance from the village and the villa itself was amazing. The bedrooms were all ensuite or had a private bathroom, the living areas were great with the kitchen being very well equipped. Best of all were the amazing outside areas with a greeting eating spaces and one of the very best pools. Apart from the great villa, Francois was an outstanding host. He made more than one trip into the villa to give our party a lift saving them the walk, was extremely helpful when one of our party needed a doctor and in general was incredibly helpful. Would definitely recommend this location and it is also our intention to go again.

Relaxing in France

  • 5 of 5

Our week at your Villa was fantastic. The house had everything we needed and more. The outdoor living areas are the best in the month of June. We had awesome weather and the pool was perfect. We had 4 adult couples and each had their privacy and plenty a space to gather together for wine. The views of the near by mountains were beautiful. The town which was only a few minute away had restaurants, bakeries and cheese shops that were outstanding. If we come back to southern France we will definite stay at this Villa again. Thank you Francois and Janette!!!!

Wonderful home

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the best homes we have ever stayed in for vacation. It was perfect in every way for our family of 9-- wonderful outside dining spaces, inside dining spaces, a kitchen completely outfitted. All the rooms were comfortable and private. The view is incomparable. And everything is within 30 minutes driving distance. And is is out in the country but only 2 miles to the charming village of Eygalieres. We could not have had a nicer vacation. I would highly recommend this wonderful home. Thank you Francois for sharing your home.

Een onvergetelijke week!!

  • 5 of 5

Ter gelegenheid van ons 40 jarig huwelijk verbleven we een week met onze kinderen en kleinkind in Eygalières. Het huis is prachtig en ruim en troffen het schoon aan. Het kinderbedje voor onze kleinzoon was mooi opgemaakt. Belangrijk is dat alle kamers een eigen badkamer hebben, dit verhoogt de privacy voor alle gasten. Er zijn verschillende terrassen en een buitenkeuken, een heerlijke tuin en zwembad. Het geheel biedt alle privacy.

In de omgeving zijn er mooie oude dorpjes te bezoeken en plaatselijke markten.

Uitrusting van de keuken is volledig voor een gezelschap van 10 personen met 2 koelvriescombinaties. Wasmachine en droger zijn aanwezig.

De hulpvaardigheid van de eigenaar is prima. Hij is goed bereikbaar en treft zo nodig meteen maatregelen.

Dit prachtige huis op zijn mooie locatie met uitzicht op de Alpilles bevelen wij van harte bij iedereen aan.

Voor ons is het onvergetelijke week geworden!

Dank je wel François!

Great Property with Beautiful Setting

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed out stay at the Eygalieres property. 4 couples took advantage of the heated swimming pool, large updated kitchen and plenty of space for indoor or outdoor eating. It was a 20 minute walk to town and a shorter walk to the closest winery. Francois spoke excellent English and was very helpful in suggesting restaurants and day trips. We highly recommend this property.
