VILLA LE PRIOTLET

Lignan de Bordeaux Villa Rental Photos and Description

Luxury Villa in renowned wine region

Villa Le Priotlet is a centuries old authentic stone villa set on the banks of the Dordogne River, 15 minutes east of the Unesco World Heritage site of Saint-Emilion.

This family home has been lovingly restored and furnished and is ideal for three couples or a small family group to relax and enjoy the peaceful views and gentle countryside or explore the world-famous vineyards of the region.

Interior & Grounds

Just outside of the tidy village of Flaujagues, a little lane cuts through Bordeaux vineyards. There is parking for one or two cars inside the gate; with additional space outside.

The Villa has been recently renovated to a high standard with many authentic details such as thick stone walls, exposed brick and beams provide rustic charm and character.

The well-equipped kitchen includes a large two-door refrigerator, five-burner gourmet gas range and oven, dishwasher, microwave, toaster oven, coffeemaker and tea kettle. The deep sink has a powerful spray attachment, and the cupboards are spring-loaded. In the kitchen and throughout the house are eclectic yet functional touches like these that show the personality of the owners. A door from the kitchen allows natural light and leads to a small side terrace with river views.

The salon is a light-filled, open area with high ceilings and an impressive beam that spans the width of the room. A sofa and two club chairs next to a wood-burning stove form a convivial space to relax after dinner. It can also serve as an entertainment area and communication hub, with an iPod dock, library of English-language books, which includes guides for the region and France in general, and the high-speed Internet port. While the connection is wireless, guests may wish to set up their laptop computers here at the round table.

A staircase from the salon leads to the master suite. This spacious room, its high ceiling set off by an elegant crystal chandelier, has a king-sized bed, TV with satellite reception including hundreds of English-language channels, and a view of the river. The ensuite bath has a single vanity, marble stall shower with fixed shower head and WC. A large antique armoire and mirrored chest of drawers provide ample storage.

There are two good-sized bedrooms on the ground floor around the corner from the salon. The first bedroom with exposed beams painted in green has a queen-sized bed and a window overlooking the garden. The second bedroom is slightly larger, has a king-sized bed (which can be divided into twins) and French doors which open onto the garden and can be used as an independent entrance, if desired. Both bedrooms share a large bath at the end of the hall. The bathroom, done in tumbled limestone, has a single vanity and tub with hand-held shower and WC. There is an additional WC on the ground floor.

A cozy den at the end of the hall can be used as a TV room, second sitting room or office. A washer & dryer can be found in a small utility closet off the den. A door leads to the parking area and is convenient for guests staying on this side of the house. Stairs from the den lead to the fourth bedroom located on the upper level. This private guest suite has a queen-sized bed and vineyard views. The ensuite bath has a single vanity and blue tiled walk-in shower with fixed shower head. A separate, private WC is around the corner. This room has sloped ceilings and an open loft style feel.

The terrace that overlooks the Dordogne River is the ideal spot for a glass of wine during your stay at this magical house. This picturesque area has a wrought-iron table and chairs for six and is partially shaded by a large tree. From here one can watch the sun rise, enjoy a leisurely breakfast, linger over lunch, sip an apéritif as the sun sets, or dine under the stars. Guests also have direct access to the river via a wide, sturdy staircase with railing that is secured by a locked gate. A canoe and paddles are available for guests’ use. Additional canoes can be rented from the neighboring village of Pessac.

Guest can enjoy swimming in the river (the cleanest in France) or the saltwater swimming pool. The 5x10m pool is protected by an alarm and fenced in for safety. The well-maintained grounds include flat, soft grassy areas and are gently dotted with colour from plants and flowers including roses, hydrangeas and lavender. A shed inside the gate houses the canoe and paddles, two bikes for riding along the river and an indoor/outdoor ping-pong table.

The warm and inviting common areas will be appreciated by all guests, especially in the cooler months when dining outdoors is not possible. It's very easy to imagine dining fireside at the rectangular country-style table for six in the kitchen/dining room. More formal seating for four is available at a round table in the adjacent salon for card games or a small family meal.

Simply Chateau was set up in 2003 after two old school chums enjoyed a fantastic holiday with friends in a French chateau in the Dordogne. Oliver & Ravi, the two directors of the company, were amazed at what terrific value these stunning chateaux rentals represented and decided to spread the word. Soon after the website www.simplychateau.com was born.

Today we deliver a wide range of luxury villas, private chateaux and charming farmhouses throughout France, Italy, Spain, the UK and the Caribbean. We have something for everyone from charming manor houses representing great value for money to fully catered & serviced luxury chateaux, all handpicked and chosen with care. Bookings are made direct with the owner of your chosen property to guarantee you get the best booking price available.

Villa Le Priotlet

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jul 25, 2013
  • Stayed: Aug 2012
This fetching house sits upon the bank of the Dordogne River in the tiny town of Flaujagues. It is charming, splendid yet simple, and has a feeling of old world allure mixed with clean modern convenience. We breakfasted outside on crossaints, jam, butter, bread, and fresh wild strawberries all from the nearby market. Just 15 minutes away is St. Emilion, the World Heritage Site of wine, medieval churches, and history. St. Emilion looks as if it materialized straight from the frontispiece of an antique book of fairy tales. We were giddy after a wonderful tour of Clos Jacobins and then a tasting in the wine cellar of one of the many wine shops in the village. The Villa is a true get-away where you can pretend you have your own place in the French country side. S'il vous plat allez et appciez !

Map

The villa is an ideal vacation spot for wine lovers or those in search of a relaxing holiday in the tranquil countryside of the Bordeaux region.

Whether arriving in Bordeaux by air or train, you are less than an hour away from the Villa. Guests can reduce the drive to a half hour by taking the TGV from Paris to Libourne. The quaint town of Saint-Emilion, a UNESCO World Heritage site and obligatory stop for oenophiles, is only fifteen minutes by car. The fête du vin, held every other year in June, in Saint-Emilion and Bordeaux, is reason alone to visit! The lively town of Castillon-la -Bataille, with twice-weekly markets and larger stores, is a ten-minute drive. The region is rich in wine but also history, with dozens of medieval chateaux and thousand-year old churches dotting the hillsides. Restaurants in all categories also abound in the area, with a nice mix of family-run establishments serving traditional fare and newer chefs putting a modern spin into their menus.

The quiet riverside village of Flaujagues is a few minutes on foot, with an engaging restaurant, café, bakery, small grocery store and post office. A spectacular Bastille Day celebration, annual flea market and myriad special events take place in the village, including a special Christmas market. During the summer months are three evening markets, where local goods, wine and gifts are for sale and there are long picnic tables where the community gathers to celebrate well into the night. Luckily you can just stroll home from the festivities. The French take recognizing their local culture and history seriously!

There is ample opportunity to explore and enjoy the immediate and surrounding areas. That aside there is also much to be said for adapting to the slower European pace of life. We suggest you plan accordingly and budget enough time to both sightsee and shop all you want and slow down to savor the quiet moments and simple joys of this special home in such a splendid setting.
