GREAT PLACE!!! Whole family loved the house, loved Eygalieres, and loved the towns nearby, Gordes, Rousillon, St. Remy, Les Beaux de Provence. All just exquisite. The accommodations were perfect, Sandrine was very nice in orienting us to the property, and everything worked perfectly well. We would love to return, for the location, the people and the fabulous meal we had at Chez Bru, to say nothing of the great bread, cheese and produce available in the town itself.

We thoroughly loved Provence, its scenery, the small villages, the people, and the food. We found people of Provence, unlike Parisians, to be very kind, thoughtful and helpful. There were fourteen family members and all returned home with fond...
