Mas des Rouges Gorges

Mas des Rouges Gorges is a modern country house on the edge of Eygalières, a medieval village at the heart of the Alpilles Natural Regional Park. The Villa draw its inspiration from the traditional limestone architecture of Eygalières. The monolithic building has a facade of large stone blocks which merges seamlessly with a roof laid in stone slabs. The few, symmetrically positioned window openings emphasize its linear character and pure, elegant architecture. But the centre-piece of this 250 sqm house is the double-height living room and complete with broad windows overlooking the garden. The kitchen and one of the bedrooms are positioned at either end of the building’s front. And two additional bedrooms can be found on the upper floor, connected by a corridor with a glass balustrade. The interior is dominated by wood and concrete – a beautiful blend of purism and warmth. Peace and privacy are guaranteed, as the house is surrounded by one hectare of Mediterranean parkland. The large heated pool is a lovely place to while away the hours.

What to do

Swimming in the 4x10-meter heated pool, walks, relaxation. Sightseeing: archaeological sites, villages and small towns in the surrounding area.

Why we like this house

Traditional architecture interpreted in a contemporary way. The puritanical elegance of the house and the spacious property offer the best conditions for a relaxing holiday.

This house is great for

Family holiday in quiet surroundings.
