The picturesque and historical village of Eygalières is located in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur region, surrounded by the Alpilles mountains, Baux-de-Provence and Saint-Remy-de-Provence. Stone houses and charming restaurants and bars line the main street, which winds up towards 17th century Chapelle des Pènitents and medieval castle ruins. Perched on a rocky outcrop of Allipes mountain tops, and offering magnificent panoramas over Alpilles, Eygalieres overlooks vast fields of olive trees, verdant valleys and prosperous vineyards. With 300 days of sunshine a year, the tight-knit artist community of the region can be found creating en plein air among the golden fields and rugged hilltops.
Spend your mornings at Café De La Place drinking café au lait with a croissant or sacristain from the local boulangerie, and your afternoons with a pastis, glass of local rose, and a charcuterie plate. Café De La Place is centre of the universe, according to villagers, a place to connect, converse and watch the world go by.
