Rates: from £3,242 per week
Our luxury property, La Maison des Amis, is ideally located close to Bordeaux and St Emilion's world renowned vineyards and offers a tranquil escape in a beautiful natural landscape of an ancient stone quarry. The fully renovated 18th century farmhouse comprises 5 bedrooms, sleeping 12 guests, a large 16x4.5m pool, multiple family living areas and a spacious garden including a children's play area making it the ideal family property.
The owners of La Maison des Amis have renovated the villa in a most appealing way, blending traditional elements such as the elegant façade and main living room with modern comforts and furnishings such as in the contemporary salon and garden room, the bedrooms and the excellent kitchen/dining room. They have retained the villa's character but added a real 21st century appeal, particularly with the attractive pool reconstruction. La Maison des Amis is ideally located in the wine region, close to some of the best chateaux and vineyards in the world. The area is very quiet, green and lush and offers guests the opportunity to explore the hills and woods that surround. The property is hidden away and so you are guaranteed a private retreat. There are many activities available in the local area, including hiking, biking, kayaking, horse riding and tree top climbing. Take the occasion to go wine tasting at some of the prestigious chateaux in the area, spend the day in Bordeaux or a little further at the seaside in the Bassin d'Arcachon.
