Between Vaison-la-Romaine and Puyméras, in a preserved natural location, stands the Villa Elaia, a holiday residence. It is here that in 1998 Anne, a painter, and Pierre created a unique holiday destination, in a Gallo-Roman architectural style. It is also a place with the appearance of an artists' residence, with an art gallery on site, where Anne will be willing to introduce you to watercolour and acrylic painting.
When we arrived, we were transported through time. We were greeted by a sumptuous mosaic on one of the walls, and we were immersed in a Roman atmosphere by the columns which adorn the residence, the statues which line the flourishing garden, the finely carved basins and the wall hangings.
Each set of living quarters (we're not talking about rooms, which have been turned into studios equipped with a kitchenette) is unique, decorated depending on the inspiration of Anne, whose works have even been painted on the walls or in frames which are tastefully arranged.
Sunflower, violet, wisteria, lavender, anemone, agapanthus... Places to stay with unique environments.
What we were keen to do: put down our suitcases and go and relax by the pool. I chose to look around the art gallery with colourful works, sometimes abstract, and I immediately fell in love with some exquisite painted glasses. You can find wonderful gifts here!
This Roman stay promises unique moments, because it's not every day that you can stay in a pretty Gallo-Roman villa in Provence.
