The Provence region
Slap bang in the middle of the stunning Alpilles range of hills (big hills!) but only 2.5kms from the village centre of Eygalieres.
The local landscape is dominated by olive groves and vineyards, and many of the local villages offer tours of the 'olive press' mills - a good option if you need to escape the Provencal sunshine for a while!
If you like to explore the local Provencal markets, you’ll be spoilt for choice! There are some excellent Paysan Markets where you will find local produce, grown and sold by some real characters!
With good restaurants in abundance in this area, it’s not difficult to spoil yourself – holidays aren’t for dieting!
The Alpilles hills are on the doorstep and the area is popular with sports and countryside lovers. There are some fantastic walks, cycle routes and mountain bike tracks close by and the area is well known for rock climbing. If you've got the energy you can also try horse riding, golf, tennis and canoeing.
Further afield, but still within easy reach are the well know, pretty villages of the Luberon hills - Bonnieux, Menerbes, Lacoste...The sea is under an hour away, with the beautiful Callanques of Marseille to explore as well as any number of the local fishing ports you can find on the coast.
If its culture you're after don’t miss Saint Remy de Provence for its Roman architecture and the fortified hill top village of Les Baux de Provence (the 2nd most visited site in France).
