Why is the cottage called "les Aiguiers" ?

Stone and water

We decided to name our cottage, «Les Aiguiers», in reference to these provençal pools for storage and recovery of water dug in the rock and mostly protected from local stones.

Indeed, the cottage was itself built around these 2 elements: local stone and water.

The stone that adorns many interior and exterior walls of our vacation rental, comes directly from the basement of the plot on which the cottage is built or the nearby. It is a type of reddish limestone mollasse typical of the Grignan region. This same stone was used in the construction of parts of the castle located less than 2kms from the house.

In our holiday home, water, this precious property, is offered through 2 swimming pools.

As for the Provençal Aiguiers, their highest concentration is found in the Apt and Sault region.


However, a number of these buildings are still more or less visible in the surroundings: at the entrance of Valaurie on the D7; not far from the house, in a street adjacent to the road of the great Tuilière, between dwellings and drill of holm oaks.

Local references

References to Ewers and water (aqua, eygue or acute etymological sources) are ubiquitous in the region:

To the north, Notre Dame d'Aiguebelle less than 10 kms from the cottage is a magnificent abbey nestled in a relaxing setting conducive to meditation and/or hiking: it is built around streams that spring from the rock or pass through and along the Abbey. To discover! 

To the west, the Eyguebelle estate in Valaurie, renowned for its fragrant and fruity syrups as well as its artisanal aperitifs that smell good the local essences and the south of France (Melonade, Pastis, etc.); a visit to the museum to understand the alchemy of water, aromas and plants. 

To the east: Heading for Nyons or runs the river l'Eygues (one of its particularities is that it is called «Aygues» when it joins the Vaucluse downstream). Upstream it meanders in a mineral decoration of granite rocks and limestone. The walk along the river is splendid and crossing the majestic Roman bridge an experience.

Further south, at about 35km, in Camaret-sur-Aigues, you will find yourself right next to some of the most beautiful vineyards in the region (Gigondas, Vacqueras, etc.), and next to the ancient city of Orange and can admire this beautiful medieval village atypical with its majestic and characteristic door. 


It is in tribute to this combination of elements and the richness of the local heritage that we called our Gite Les Aiguiers.
