Superb location for family gatherings and special occasions as it boasts large terraces both around the pool and on the side of the house overlooking the hills of the Alpilles.
You will find Provençal decoration at its most refined, displaying elements seen in a Côté Sud Magazine--ancient beams alongside original wrought iron fittings, stone walls, antiques, several large stone chimneys and sumptuous linens. The bedrooms offer the privacy of a boutique inn, while the communal living areas, kitchen, pool and terraces comfortably draw guests in, making them feel at home. In sum, you will find a stay at Le Mas d'Eygalières an unforgettable way to visit Provençe.

Everything was just perfect… I can honestly say that there were no surprises when we got there - it was exactly as we had found it on the internet (maybe even better!!), and the location of the house - close enough to walk about ten minutes into town but also on the edge of the natural park area to let us feel as if we were far away from everyone - was ideal.
The house itself is just beautiful - the uniform decoration throughout gives a welcoming and warm feeling, and there were lots of areas to go to if one wanted to be alone, but also many areas where one could congregate to enjoy a meal or a drink, boules or table tennis (although the Mistral would have blown away the balls had we played!). The village is charming. It has everyone you could ever need - a boulangerie, boucher, épicerie, pharmacie, fromagerie, a little newspaper shop and delightful restaurants and outdoor bars. The Friday market added just that special touch for us and for our guests. All of the shop owners and the market vendors could not have been more friendly and helpful. And daily we made our walk up the hill to the old ruins and the most fabulous views out over the olive tree-studded landscape and Les Alpilles, in order to keep in shape and to drink in the vistas. When we wanted to discover other villages or locations, we found that nothing was too far away for us - a half hour in this direction or an hour in that one and we were in a whole new world of beauty and history. An ideal location from which to explore the charm of Provence.
Wonderful house! The appointments were first class. The gardens, the pool, the tennis court were also fantastic. After a busy week of touring Paris, Mas d’Eygalieres was a perfect place to relax. Very private yet close enough to a very charming village. We also enjoyed taking the mountain bikes up into the Parc des Alpilles which is right at your doorstep. Josephine was delightful as well – very attentive and helpful!
She cooked us a wonderful meal of white fish and Ratatouille – just delicious. Also, we had a wonderful gourmet meal prepared by Chef Yvan – saffron foam over roasted legumes, pan roasted Cobia over a delicate ravioli d’aubergines – amazing!
Areas for improvement:
A little confusion the first day with the keys for the bikes and the tennis lights, but Josephine and Jonathan figured it all out.
Would you recommend Le Mas d Eygalieres, Only Provence, Chefs or Tours?
We wish to thank you and the owners of Le Mas d'Eygalieres for a truly wonderful stay from 5 - 12 April. The property far exceeded our expectations and we were blown away by the care, love and attention the owners have poured into it. It is truly one of the most amazing properties we have stayed at anywhere around the world. The villa is better appointed than most people's homes! Absolutely love the kitchen and the abundance of cookware, crockery, cutlery, glassware, linen, etc. It was a pleasure just to be able to choose the table setting each night!
We were appreciative of the daily attendance by Mdm. Josephine, the housekeeper and the gardener. The scale and detail of the property certainly required them to be there to keep it ticking along!
Thoroughly enjoyed the chefs Gerald (who delivered our first night's dinner and made sure we were competent to serve it ourselves) and Ronald who was an absolute star! Beautiful food, charming and professional chefs.
Our walk around Gordes with Lucy Holmes was lovely. I think it was the only activity we thought was a little bit overpriced for the experience. There is a bit more to guided walking than just the walking. The ones we have done before have been with guides who are walking encyclopedias of the local flora, fauna and geography as well as history of course. This is what you pay for that you cannot get from guidebooks. We thought Lucy was slightly lacking in this regard.
Please pass our compliments and thanks to the owners. We are grateful to have been given the chance to share this very special place.

Just minutes from the charming, but sophisticated village of Eygalieres, a favorite hideaway for wealthy Parisians hosts a number of good restaurants. Find all of the charm and amenities in the village with butcher, baker, café/ bar and weekly market. The area surrounding the village provides one of the most dramatic landscapes in Provence with the famed Alpilles (hills) adorning the view - an area made famous by the works Vincent Van Gogh.
The easiest way to get to Inland Provence from the US is to fly to Marseilles International Airport (MRS). If you would like to see Paris, fly to Charles de Gaulle Airport, then connect directly to the TGV (high speed train) from CDG TGV2 to Avignon TGV (3 hours direct) and rent a car. You could plan to see Paris on the way back, taking the TGV from Avignon to Gare de Lyon, and getting a cab to your hotel in the city.
