Heated swimming pools and refreshment pool

Water for dreaming and lazing around...

At Domaine La Parpaille, we love water! Element of the unconscious, of sensitivity, it opens up to dreams and laziness. In a corner of the Domain, the refreshment pool in natural stones offers an ideal atmosphere to relax and recharge your batteries in peace.

Two large heated swimming pools, accessible from April to mid-October, invite you to enjoy the pleasures of bathing and swimming most of the year. One of the swimming pools is reserved for the house Sous l'Amandier, while the other is intended for the guest rooms and the loft. The latter is equipped with a Bar Lounge where you can have a drink, lunch or dinner at the Eve's table.

The gardens of the Estate

A refined blend of mineral and organic

THE Domaine La Parpaille is an extraordinary place to live, in nature, without vis-à-vis, where you can fully enjoy the passing of time.

The heat of the summers in Provence makes water a rare commodity... In order to preserve it at the Domaine, we have opted for local species requiring little watering and entirely mineral spaces – made of pebbles and rocks.

Gardens with a southern accent made up of olive trees, plane trees, pomegranates, jasmines, acacias and fig trees... All sprinkled with the soft colored presence of pretty Provençal flowers such as lavender, lilac, roses, the cyst and the irises…

Open spaces with the scents of Provence, a Bar Lounge area, a petanque court and many hidden nap spots...

Readings and games: stir your brains…

Mandalas to soothe your mind and find serenity within you, games to share, as well as inspiring books and magazines to escape... We put everything at your disposal so that you can spend moments of simple happiness.

Sylvie's massage - 1 hour

Sylvie's "tailor-made" massage is a clever mix of different techniques.

Indeed, Sylvie studied in Switzerland to train and open up to complementary techniques. Massages are performed with oils sometimes combined with essential oils (except for massages for pregnant women).

The base of the massage comes from the Hawaii School of Body Therapy. It consists of a series of kneading, vibration, lomi-lomi, palpating-rolling strokes where each part of the body is worked independently for a deep relaxation of tensions.
Deep body massage – it is both relaxing, energizing, and particularly relaxing for muscle tension.

Sylvie is also a graduate in NST (Neuro Structural Integration technique). This technique is proposed for chronic, recurrent or intense tensions. Indeed, NST is a therapy in its own right which allows the osteo-muscular realignment of the fascias and the subtle energies of the human body. It is without any contraindication. Sylvie also works through magnetism which brings an energetic rebalancing of body and mind.

The session begins with a verbal exchange so that Sylvie can adapt her massage to your needs and/or expectations. Sylvie's massage, the guarantee of a moment of pure happiness... Life in slow motion...

It is practiced indoors in a vaulted room or outdoors next to a stone basin.
