La Maison de Maitre Amenities

La Maison de Maitre Amenities

La Maison de Maitre is a very special find indeed - a glamorous blend of French country chic interiors with the best elements of self catering i.e. spacious, private accommodation and freedom to cook for yourselves, and the style, luxury and optional additional services of a boutique hotel such as bathrobes, slippers, champagne, flowers etc.

Lovingly restored by its owners, designers Juliet and Deane, and their team of local artisans, this grand 18th century former barn is now home to three luxury self catering suites with one or two bedrooms a piece, fully equipped modern kitchens and their own private outdoor terraces. Each suite is stylishly decorated with an eclectic mix of modern, antique and traditional style furniture, attractive soft furnishings, antique mirrors and crystal chandeliers, and painted in cool restful colours.

Despite their 18th century character, each has plentiful supplies of contemporary fixtures and fittings too. Their fully equipped kitchens come with free standing cooker, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washing machine, kettle, toaster and coffee machine, plus a full complement of crockery, cutlery, and glassware, cooking utensils, iron and ironing board; whilst their living areas boast UK satellite TV and Video or DVD player, selection of films and a CD player. There's even a hairdryer supplied for each suite, completing the boutique hotel suite feel. Younger guests are well looked after too with a comprehensive list of nursery gear from sippy cups and sterilisers to cots and baby baths (see full list in grey box below), plus baskets of toys, books and colouring materials.

The icing on the cake is the wonderful setting on an 8-acre country house estate complete with parkland, fields and orchards, plus a glistening 12 × 6 m pool with truly fabulous views over the surrounding countryside and villages. Here guests relax easily and time goes slowly. Days start taking in the views over al fresco breakfasts on the suite terraces or cooked for you and served on the lovely communal terrace. Later on it’s a tough choice between lounging by the pool soaking in the views or packing a picnic (self-made or ordered from the owners) and pottering around the grounds, perhaps a stroll into the pretty village for supplies or lunch? Or a daytrip to one of the pretty nearby towns or a St Emillion Vineyard? Evenings are generally spent sitting on the terrace enjoying the lavender scented breeze whilst enjoying a cool glass of local wine. Such an idyllic setting is sure to refresh even the most frazzled of parents!

Please note: There is a pond on the estate but it is approx. 50 metres from the accommodation and should not therefore pose a danger.

Reviews

  • We had such a wonderful stay at the Maison de Maitre, Coco suite. The whole place is done so thoughtfully, we really only had to bring ourselves and clothes! Everything else was there! Would thoroughly recommend to anyone, with children or without. Thank you Juliet and Deane!Review dated 15/09/2016

  • La Maison de Maitre is the perfect holiday destination for those with a small child who want a relaxing holiday. We had a really wonderful time.Review dated 28/05/2015

  • We had a fantastic stay, the accommodation was a very high standard set in lovely grounds with a fantastic pool. There was everything you could think of for a baby, made it a very easy and enjoyable holiday.Review dated 28/02/2014

  • Myself, my husband and our 11 month old baby stayed at La Maison. We had a lovely week despite the weather being terrible! The location of the gite is stunning, the facilities are great - we couldn't want for more, everything is of a very high quality and taste. We stayed in the Coco suite which was lovely. Decorated to a very high standard, clean, spacious and very well equipped. We also sampled Juliet's 3 course meal on our first night which was delicious. I would highly recommend La Maison - enjoy!Review dated 01/07/2013

  • We could not rate this accommodation highly enough, Juliet and Deane have thought of everything and we cannot wait to go back. The location is beautiful and the facilities are outstanding, our daughter loved playing with all of the toys, and splashing around in the heated pool.Review dated 24/06/2013

  • Fantastic place. Could not recommend it highly enough and what Juliet and Deane have achieved is simply great.Review dated 16/06/2013

  • A fabulous location for pure escapism. Well thought out down to every little detail. Would highly recommend!Review dated 10/06/2013

  • Beautiful property, great location, our little girl loved it. Highly recommend a visit.Review dated 05/06/2013

  • We had simply the best break in Juliet's stunning maison de maitre! We thought we wouldn't be able to have such a luxurious holiday with a toddler in tow, but with toys (and cbeebies!) on tap and champagne and fresh flowers on arrival, we were all catered for and came back feeling very refreshed. The markets and nearby towns were all lovely, as were the restaurants. We also made use of the babysitting service, which with an English registered childminder was very reassuring, and had a lovely rare romantic meal out together. We are already planning our return and the only drawback is reluctantly raving about it to all our friends, when really we want to keep la maison de maitre our own secret!Review dated 29/06/2010

  • We've just returned from the most relaxing break at La Maison de Maitre. Everything was perfect. The cottage was beautiful and fully equipped with everything that we needed. The grounds of the property are lovely with the most wonderful view from the swimming pool. Juliet was great too and suggested lots of places for us to visit. A truly great experience. Thank you!Review dated 22/06/2010
