Why Janette Rapaccioli chose Eygalières

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.

                                                                  If this beautiful property is already booked for your vacation time, change your vacation time !! It is difficult to express in words the extent of the charm, the natural beauty and calm tranquility of the property, the quality of the accommodations, and the exceptional attentiveness of M. Francois. Every beautiful morning gave a new burst of excitement; the view of Les Alpilles is unforgettable. My family (nine of us were always comfortable) and I barely could bring ourselves to leave. Do not pass up the opportunity to enjoy your Provence vacation from this beautiful place.

                                                                  Fantastic place and wonderful weather

                                                                  Margaret R.

                                                                  We did have wonderful weather during our late October stay but it would have been just as lovely had it been cold. As a matter of fact, anticipating cold temperatures we asked Francois to have firewood available and piles of wood was there upon our arrival.Three couples enjoyed the spacious, comfortable, well supplied spaces both indoors and out. The location was perfect for visiting nearby villages, both large and small, without having to travel for hours. The village of Eygalieres was my favorite of all but being able to move around this part of Provence easily was a big plus. All the village markets are unique and worth a visit in the morning and then you can venture out for more exploring in the afternoon. Just relaxing at "our" house was wonderful as well. Francois was available for information and for assistance when we had a bit of trouble with the gate, always with a pleasant manner and smile. Definitely recommend this villa!

                                                                  A large comfortable property with very private grounds

                                                                  Liam D.Ireland

                                                                  Our family (3 generations) spent two wonderful weeks at the property in September. The house was very comfortable and well equipped. The ground floor annex with two bedrooms (and en-suites) was particularly suitable for our two grandchildren and their parents and the master bedroom was outstanding. The pool is a highlight and was well maintained during our stay. Francois was available by phone or email to provide advice or help when needed. We have already booked for next year..

                                                                  A wonderful, well equipped home in a beautiful area of Provence.

                                                                  Nerys U.

                                                                  Stunning property with beautiful views of surrounding area. Owners were very helpful. The whole property is very well kept and would recommend it to anyone. Would definitely visit again.

                                                                  Delightful holiday house

                                                                  Mike D.

                                                                  We are a family of four and took Mas des Deux Puits for four weeks and filled it with family and friends. We had a great time. The house is delightful, very well situated just outside one of the prettiest villages.

                                                                  We ate every meal outside.

                                                                  Master bedroom is a delight and with two beds and baths in a separate annex it is ideal for guests.

                                                                  Great pool and garden.

                                                                  Kitchen has everything you need, masses of glassware, cutlery, plates, pots and pans. Hob is a bit underpowered, dishwasher struggled a bit and an ice machine in one of the fridges would have been good.

                                                                  Didn't spend much time inside but with mainly English speaking guests perhaps a Sky satellite system or similar would be good for the TV.

                                                                  Francois, our host, was most helpful and solved what few problems there were very promptly.

                                                                  Thoroughly recommend this house.

                                                                  Perfect Holiday Home

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.
