Overview

Pool Ideal for Kids

Just a short drive from one of Provence’s prettiest hilltop villages, Le Mas des Lauriers 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.

Le Mas des Lauries is just a short drive from one of the prettiest spots in Provence, Eygalières. This small hill-top village, with winding lanes, lovely landscapes and an authentic charm, is located 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. There is a village church, a bakery, butchers, a handful of restaurants and cafes-bars plus a wonderful Provençal market on a Friday morning.

You are of course in the heart of this formidable area of vineyards, idyllic villages, world-renowned towns, and summer landscapes of sunflowers both in Les Alpilles National Park and beyond. Nearby St-Rémy is well known for being popular with artists, many live in the area and display or sell their works of art in the village’s art galleries. The town is also famous for its many restaurants, from down to earth bistros found on pretty narrow streets to Michelin starred establishments and food lovers shouldn’t miss the market on a Wednesday morning!

Les Baux-de-Provence, one of France’s acclaimed ‘plus beaux villages’ and Van Gogh’s precious Arles are also both within easy reach. Gordes is yet another one of the beautiful villages worth visiting with stunning architecture, set in the outstanding Luberon region, surrounded by lavender fields in the summer months.

Don’t miss the lively city of Avignon during your stay. Explore the winding medieval streets, experience further excellent dining opportunities and visit two UNESCO world heritage sites, the Pope’s Palace and Saint Benezet Bridge. The covered market offers all sorts of delights or head to the weekend farmers, flower and flea markets for wonderful local produce and a bargain or two.

Those looking for activity have so much on their doorstep. There’s tennis nearby and both horse-riding and golf are within a short drive. Both the immediate and wider area are a walkers and cyclists paradise with stunning countryside and landscapes, there are many routes available to follow. Older children will love kayaking in the Sorgue and there are plenty of other family friendly activities throughout the region from model railways, open castles to trekking across the tree tops and visiting a zoo.

Provence is a wonderful place for families with kids of all ages. There is a wealth of characterful villages, towns and cities to discover across the region. Visit a typical Provencal market and try some amazing new foods or simply wander around charming villages soaking up the atmosphere and admiring artists at work.

Follow the Van Gogh path around St-Rémy, looking out for the sign-boards featuring paintings he made in the village or head a little out to the archaeological site of Glanum. Try rock-climbing in Les Alpilles or find a pony-club for younger ones. Head north to explore Avignon by the little train that takes you across the city including the Pont d’Avignon or take a boat trip across the Rhone.

Create memories by kayaking along the Sorgue or hire canoes by the magnificent Pont du Gard, near Nimes. This part of Provence also offers wonderful trails for walking, cycling and horse-riding in the area.

Young and old train lovers alike will adore the model railway, the JardiTrain, just south of Carpentras or the more adventurous can discover the fantastic Tree-Top activity centres in the Luberon, Nimes or Salon-de-Provence. Animal lovers should head to Zoo La Barben with over 600 species of animals across several hectares of land.
