Eygalières-en-Provence nr St. Rémy-de-Provence. Set within the olive groves and vineyards of the Alpilles hills. 20 mins drive from Avignon and 1hr from Marseille airport. 1km from village with bakers, grocer, market, cafés, restaurants etc.
In common with one of twoothers, Eygalières is said by many to be the prettiest village in Provence. Set within the framework of the breathtaking Alpilles hills, their lower slopes taken up by olive groves, vineyards and great expanses of garrigue where may be found a great wealth of interesting plants (such as Cistus spp, Lavendula stoechas, acres of white Alyssum, the rare blue starred Aphyllanthes monspeliensis, and many herbs such as sarriette, thyme and blue hyssop), the village provides a full range of facilities, such as 2 bakers, butcher, grocer, market, 2 cafés, several restaurants, newsagent, post office and some tennis courts.
The cottage stands in grounds of 2 hectares (5 acres) about 1km from the village, reached by a mostly unmetalled lane. The owners’ father/fatherin-law, a quiet retired gentleman, lives nearby, as does his other daughter, but they share none of the facilities of the cottage nor affect its privacy. There are no other houses within several hundred metres. This is a paradise of tranquillity and yet within 20 minutes drive of Avignon (TGV railway station and much besides) and 1 hour of Marseille airport.
This pleasant little cottage, of simple concept but in a quite lovely situation, comprises a bedroom with double bed, built-in wardrobe etc, bathroom area with shower, separate WC and hand-basin, and kitchen/dining room with tastefully fitted cupboards and worktop, double sink and drainer, 4-ring hob, pizza oven, refrigerator, dresser, table & 4 chairs, 2 small easy chairs. All rooms open to a partly walled terrace with sun-blind, table, parasol and six chairs, and the excellent 12m x 6m pool, beyond which a gently terraced garden gradually fades into the hillside, rising into the Alpilles (see lower drawing). By the pool there are 2 sunloungers. Other equipment includes telephone, TV, washing machine, electric heating, electric barbecue and linen.
Le Foulon is the perfect place to treat your loved one. Surprise him or her with a romantic break in Provence, where the beds are enormous, the showers large enough for two and the surrounding countryside rich in romantic hide-away villages, quaint little restaurants and of course, the romance of the Cote d’Azur itself.
To us the ideal romantic getaway is all about quality time. Discovering new places, sharing that enjoyment, the simplicity of a good meal and a special bottle of wine. It’s about peace and quiet, leaving the kids with your parents, and reveling in a little selfish behaviour for two.
