About jennifer cunningham

Always in love with the idea of living in Provence and learning to speak French, we decided to finally pull up stumps from our home in Australia and make the move to Provence.

We had thought about Dublin, London and Tuscany but in the end ignoring our heritage and our knowledge of Italy we moved here permanently 2 years ago - having owned a smaller house and visiting as often as we could for the last 5 years.

As the property is our home our hearts and souls are very evident in our choice of antiques, brocante, local traditional items and creature comforts. We are passionate about the local wine and food, festivities, customs and history.

Our weekly indulgences include searching for treasures in the flea markets, dining in the excellent local cafes and restaurants and enjoying the outstanding beauty of the national park in which surrounds us.

Why jennifer cunningham chose Alpilles

This magnificent stone 'mas' (Provencal for 'farmhouse')

is something dreams are made of.

Situated just 800 metres ( 5 mins on foot) from the village centre, set amongst it's own olive grove and opposite a field either filled with wild poppies or sheep, depending on the time of year, you will find that everything you need for daily life is in walking distance.

Eygalieres is a very special medieval village in the middle of a huge national park and therefore many cultural aspects and buildings are preserved. There are no neon signs and life revolves around the Friday market which is not only fantastic shopping but a very social day! It's often when everyone, including visitors meet to chat about the weather, the coming events or just share stories . Not much work seems to get done on a Friday afternoon!

Use the baskets dotted all over the house to fill up with delicious local fare for lunch, dinner or for 'apero' ( the famous 6pm glass of wine and nibbles) with each other, family, friends or new acquaintances. Eygalieres is a very friendly village of 2,000 people and they may ask you where you are from or how you come to know of their village or of the owner's. A chance to practice your French - only if you need to, of course!

The kitchen is in the local style with most things required for preparing, cooking and serving close at hand and in sight. If you decide to visit in winter there is a very welcoming huge stone fireplace which will be readily stacked with wood to keep you warm while you are in it!

At the other end of the house is another fireplace in local stone and some comfy leather chairs and a sofa. Pour a glass of wine and relax with the news ( cable television in English and US news channels) or snuggle up with a cup of tea or coffee and a good book. You will find plenty of maps and travelbooks to whet your appetite for your stay.

Or, more often than not, relax outside in the beautiful garden on a 'bain du soleil' and take a dip in the pool!

What makes this farmhouse unique

You cannot help but feel almost overwhelmed by the enormous offering of discoveries to make on your doorstep!

The Romans planted the first rose' vines, they restored an ancient city and created Glanum in 27BC - it's like a mini Pompei just 10 ks away near St Remy de Provence, Vincent Van Gogh painted Starry Night in St Remy, and all those beautiful paintings of olive trees - you can visit the asylum where he stayed. Nostramus was born in St Remy. The best olive oil comes from the mills in Mouries and Maussane. We get ours milled from Mas du Barres - you can visit and sample all the different types of 'huile d'olive'! Rose' wines are the favourite of the area - beautiful peachy, apricot pink in colour and dry on the palette. The Popes live in Avignon for 700 years, The Romans ruled from Arles- visit the site of the Forum, the Camague with its black bulls and white horses and pink flamingoes is breathtaking as is the history of its talented inhabitants. It goes on and on - a climb to the top of the medieval castle fort at Les Baux boats a view all the way to the Mediterranean and out over the hundreds of acres of vines and olive groves - it is a very special place; the family seat of the famous Grimaldi family currently of Monaco.

In Eygalieres there are some superb vineyards that can be visited by bicycle and then there is Chateauneuf du Pape and Gigondas just up the highway - a return trip easily achieved in an afternoon.

All the stories of the famous A Year in Provence by Peter Mayle come to life when you spend time in the villages of the Luberon - the neighbouring area to The Alpilles - Gordes, Bonnieux, Menerbes, and Lacoste are the best for atmosphere and history.

'Our' beautiful Eygalières, a quiet village, surrounded by the 'garrigue' landscape of the Alpilles, with vast olive groves, green valleys and vineyards is simply a postcard moment at every turn.

Here you will discover a charming village which has managed to retain it's authenticity.

Charming Holidays in Provence

  • 5 of 5

The staff was very kind and reliable.

The views are charming, adding to the peace and quiet found at the town of Eygalieres, which is at a bike-ride distance from the property.

The small towns in Provence nearby the property are beautiful and very picturesque, so renting a car to go see them is highly recommended.

Bike, pool and other facilities such as the grill and neat kitchen and laundry room are in excellent condition and add to the experience.

Rooms and bathrooms are also neat and tidy, size is great and the max amount of people that are admitted in the house is perfect, in no way too much.

To sum up, this holiday was fantastic, couldn't have been a better experience at the property!
