La Grande Maison is the perfect holiday home for wine lovers and gourmet travelers. Located in the heart of the UNESCO World Heritage Site of St. Emilion, this beautiful property is just a short walk away from fine dining restaurants and numerous wine shops in the center of the famous medieval village. Short stays at La Grande Maison are possible even in high season, which makes it the ideal base to discover the world-famous vineries of one of the principal red wine areas of Bordeaux, before moving on to discover other parts of France.
La Grande Maison is set on 800 square meters of land and the living spaces of 360 square meters have been tastefully designed. Its ambience fluctuates from high spec private villa to small boutique hotel. The theme of 'wine' is omnipresent in this beautiful property: From the vineyards in front of La Grande Maison, the unique and very original decoration in the dining and sitting room, to the wine cellar and wine list available for the guests: This truly is 'a wine lovers' paradise. On the ground floor you will find a well equipped kitchen, a sitting area, a dining room, office space as well as a spacious en-suite bedroom. From the kitchen you have access to a small outside dining and sitting area, which is ideal for the summer months. But always bear in mind that many restaurants with delicious regional specialities are waiting for you a short walk away. On the first floor there are four further en-suite bedrooms. All rooms are spacious, nicely furnished, air-conditioned and equipped with flat screen TVs. Three of the bedrooms have en-suite shower rooms, the other two offer absolute comfort with both iron cast roll top bath and separate shower. La Grande Maison is without doubt the ideal base to discover this beautiful wine region. If you stay in St. Emilion, it goes without saying that you have to get to know the best St. Emilion wines and their producers. Wine tastings and visits of the world famous Chateaux are a must-do in this area!
