Eygalieres, France



While in the south of France, I constantly felt surrounded by beauty!  But when Steve and I stumbled upon the village of Eygalieres, I was completely charmed.

When we first arrived, it was late afternoon and the sun was bright and warm and cast a beautiful golden glow on the rugged stone buildings.  The sky was also a spectacular shade of blue and there wasn't a cloud to be seen!



Eygalieres is set below the Alpilles.  The main part of the village is absolutely darling, extending up a long spur of rock.

At the top of the village, stand the ruins of a castle.  It was there that we spent most of our time.



We found ourselves quite alone in this quiet, peaceful spot, and I was in my element snapping away  :)







As the light started to change and fade, we headed back to our car, but I found myself already missing the charm of this small village.  If you find yourself in Provence, I hope you will check out Eygalieres, it remains one of my favorite spots in Provence.












Hope you enjoy a beautiful day ~

Beautiful photos! I've never really had the desire to travel abroad because there's just so many amazing things here in the USA. Then I see photos like yours and I get a little itch to travel to a far away place.

Incredible! Provence and Nice are next on my list for next spring. I just returned from my first trip to Paris.

Oh again, if I had only known! Eygalieres is one of my favorite villages for exactly the same reasons that you so beautifully captured--but there is more! I would have loved for you to have had lunch at Sous les Micocouliers, visited the chapel St. Sixte and discover my favorite brocante on the Route 24...

Next time!!!
Bisous from Arles,
Heather
