This delightful family villa in Provence is situated in the heart of the Alpilles hills close to the pretty village of St Sixte and Eygalieres with views across the countryside to the Alpilles. This is quintessential Provence - dazzling summers, sunflowers, olive trees, vineyards and hilltop villages.
The rooms are large and bright, the garden a delight for families with a large, level lawn surrounding the pool. Add to this the gentle country views and shady outdoor dining areas, and you have an idyllic, restful holiday retreat.

A great place to take a young family - lots of room for the children to play in the garden and a peaceful, get-away-from-it-all kind of place for the parents. If it gets too quiet, just a stone's throw away is the wonderful little village of Eygalières, which has a long history as a walled town with a hilltop church: you will find several cosy restaurants, a couple of shops and a bar here.
