Castillon la Bataille | Bedrooms: 4 | Sleeps: 8
Rates: from £5,179 per week
Located in the historical market town of Castillon la Bataille and enjoying beautiful views of the Dordogne River, this spacious and light village house is an absolute delight. Picture-postcard pretty, its charming interiors mix a classic feel with luxurious modern touches. Maison du Village is set within walking distance of all the shops and restaurants in the village, yet is very quiet and private. The UNESCO world heritage site Saint Emilion famous for its wines is only a 20 minute drive away.
This luxurious property consists of a main house and a separate apartment, ideal for families or friends travelling together. Entering the main house you will find a well-equipped kitchen, a dining area, a comfortable living room with fireplace as well as a TV snug area. From the living room you can step out onto a terrace overlooking the river - this is the ideal place to kick back with a bottle of Bordeaux as you watch hot air balloons crossing the Dordogne River. The ground floor is also home to a bedroom with en-suite shower room that can be either set up as double or twin bedroom. Upstairs, you will find the master bedroom, complete with king size bed and bathroom with bath tub and separate Italian shower. The main guest bedroom on the first floor boasts an en-suite shower room and gives access to another bedroom - upon request the pull out bed in this room can be made up as a single or double bed. Accessed by a separate stair case a self-contained apartment offers additional privacy and can even be rented independently in low season. It contains a well equipped kitchen on the ground floor, as well as a living room with access to a sun deck terrace, bedroom and shower room on the first floor. In the courtyard Maison du Village boasts an al fresco dining area with charcoal barbecue, and stairs lead you down to a beautiful garden. The village of Castillon la Bataille has a very rich historical and architectural heritage, having been the setting of the battle that put an end to the 100 Years War between the French and the English in 1453. Today the town is famous for its historical reconstitution of the battle in summertime and offers many cultural activities.
