Just a short drive from one of Provence’s prettiest hilltop villages, Le Mas des Lauries is a charming home in the countryside near Eygalières.
This enchanting Provençal farmhouse is warm and welcoming with an elegant yet eclectic style and a rustic and characterful atmosphere throughout. Bright white rooms compliment the wonderful light flooding throughout the house from the picture book windows and open doors. There are six pretty bedrooms and bathrooms across the main house and a separate Maisonette, making it a perfect base for friends or family wanting to enjoy the authenticity of a lovely home.
Dip into the inviting swimming pool to cool off on long summer afternoons, then drink good local wine with friends as you dine al-fresco, surrounded by white laurel as well as olive trees so typical of this glorious region full of green valleys, olive groves and vineyards.
This is a great location near one of the prettiest spots in Provence, Eygalières, a small hill-top village, with winding lanes and authentic charm in the beautiful Les Alpilles Natural Park. It is no surprise that many A-list celebrities have bought villas here to escape the paparazzi elsewhere.
You are of course in the heart of this formidable area of vineyards, idyllic villages, world-renowned towns and summer landscapes of sunflowers and lavender both in Les Alpilles and beyond. St-Rémy, Les Baux-de-Provence and Avignon are all within easy reach as well as Van Gogh’s beloved Arles and the mesmerising Luberon, which can easily be visited for a memorable day.
Whether exploring the local markets, cycling through lavender fields or pony trekking through the magnificent countryside, return to your captivating abode and rest in great comfort in your lovely Provençal surroundings.
