Soak up the Provençal ambience at this enchanting abode which has been designed with style and character, just a short walk away from one of the most beautiful villages of Les Alpilles.

Les Oiseaux D'Or is an exceptional holiday home for a family or group of friends. Inside, the interiors are beautiful – the mas has been renovated with great care, attention and style by its owners who also spend their holidays here. The large living room is elegant as well as welcoming and opens up to a superbly equipped and modern kitchen-diner, all with French doors opening up to the garden. There are five elegant bedrooms, three of which are en suite including a master bedroom with its own little terrace for watching the sun set with a glass of Provençal rosé.

Outside the south-facing gardens are filled with the aromas of Provence with lavender, thyme and rosemary in abundance alongside pines, towering cypresses and fig trees. Relax in the lounge by the pool house or cool off in the glorious swimming pool. Pretty benches are dotted across the grounds for quiet moments or play a game of pétanque to relax. As evening approaches, gather together and feast by the traditional stone barbecue on the al-fresco terrace accompanied by the gentle sound of the trickling fountain on warm summer evenings.

Stroll into Eygalières and be mesmerised by its beauty – no wonder some A-list celebrities have bought houses in this charming village. Old lanes passing characterful houses and pretty fountains weave up to the top of the village where you can enjoy the most amazing views of the landscapes of Les Alpilles. Enjoy lazy lunches in one of the pretty cafes and restaurants or dine out in the evening without having to wander too far to get home.

Surrounded by olive groves, rolling hills and picturesque villages, there is so much to see and do in this part of Provence. Visit the artist’s town of St-Rémy with its Wednesday morning market or drive past spectacular scenery to reach medieval Les Baux-de-Provence, one of France’s ‘Plus Beaux Villages’. Discover walking trails through olive groves, cycle in the foothills of the mountains or try horse-riding as a great way to appreciate the surrounding scenery.

The small and incredibly attractive city of Avignon is also easily reached, as is the alluring Luberon with its vineyards, woodland and spectacular perched villages. This really is a magical region of southern France.

Les Oiseaux D'Or is located just outside the Provençal village of Eygalières in the stunning Parc Naturel Régional des Alpilles, just half an hour south of Avignon.

It’s just a leisurely stroll (or short drive) into the heart of Eygalières where you will find a choice of restaurants, cafes and shops such as a bakery, grocery store and butchers. It’s known to be one of the most beautiful villages of this region – you will appreciate its charm as you wander through the narrow cobbled lanes passing pretty houses and fountains. Don’t miss the Friday morning market when the village centre comes alive with all sorts of regional delights. At the top of the village there are amazing views of Les Alpilles – it’s no wonder a couple of A-list celebrities have bought houses here.

You are well placed to explore many more of the region’s delightful villages and towns. Start off in the famous artist’s town of Saint-Rémy-de-Provence (15km) with its studios and art galleries, excellent restaurants and Wednesday morning market. Maussane-les-Alpilles (20km) is another picturesque village for a leisurely lunch out – make sure you sample some of the olive oil which is still produced in one of the original mills.

Les Baux-de-Provence (24km) is also around half an hour away, passing spectacular scenery of Les Alpilles as you drive south. One of France’s ‘Plus Beaux Villages’, visit early in the morning to avoid the summer crowds and discover why so many visitors are enchanted by this idyllic spot with its incredible castle. With an elevated position, the views from the village are once again outstanding.

This is a walker’s paradise with endless trails through the beautiful countryside weaving through olive groves, fruit orchards, fields of Provençal herbs, woodland and magnificent mountain views. The region is also popular with cyclists (as is the neighbouring Luberon) whilst golf-lovers can enjoy the wonderful surroundings at the Domaine de Manville, near Les Baux-de-Provence. Horse-riding, pony-trekking, rock-climbing and a whole host of other activities can also be arranged.

Heading north, the small city of Avignon (30km) should also be visited, just half an hour by car. As well as the city’s historic sights, including two UNESCO World Heritage sites, Avignon is also well-known for its vibrant restaurants, café-bars serving excellent local wines and atmospheric markets.

Follow the foot-steps of Van Gogh and visit his beloved Arles (40km) or drive across to the Luberon region where you will find a wealth of perched medieval villages including Gordes (37km), another one of France’s ‘Plus Beaux Villages’.

Region

The Provençal way of life is one that’s deeply tempting for anyone who’s been feeling the need to get away from it all. This is a place where the Mediterranean weather turns fields of corn and lavender into picture-perfect backdrops, where you can sip your locally bought wine and enjoy the landscapes before heading out and tackling them head-on with a range of great activities for families, groups of friends and adventurous foodies. Better yet, our range of villas in Provence and chateaux and holiday homes in the Côte d’Azur make the perfect base to explore this enchanting region!

Young art-lovers will adore nearby Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, where Vincent Van Gogh spent so much time at the end of his life. Follow the art-trail around the town, looking out for signs that show you places which inspired the famous artist. Van Gogh’s beloved Arles also has a similar type of trail, alongside some wonderful art galleries to visit.

Avignon will also appeal to children with its vibrant markets and amazing buildings – visit two of the UNESCO’s World Heritage sites and if your legs get tired then pick up a tour of the city via the little road-train. In the summer you can look out for boat trips along the Rhone.

If you love canoeing then a trip to Fontaine-de-Vaucluse is a must – hire canoes down the beautiful river Sorgue and head to the charming town of L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue with its waterways and antique shops. Le Pont du Gard, around an hour away and another UNESCO World Heritage site, near Nîmes, is another great place for canoeing or just head there for a picnic by the banks of the Gard river.

Closer to home, look out for events taking place at Carrières De Lumière, near Les Baux-de-Provence. A former quarry, amazing light-shows are projected onto the walls depicting famous works of art accompanied by music – it’s said to be a fantastic experience.
