Additional Location Information
The house and its surroundings are amazingly quiet. This area of Eygalieres is no longer build-able and the low number of properties each have four or more acres of land. This contrasts to other rental properties in Eygalieres who sit on much more densely built land. On Fridays, you can go to the Eygalieres market, a great treat which is replicated in surrounding towns the rest of the week.
