Overview

Description

Le Pressoir

Le Pressoir is the estate’s former 'wine pressing house' complete with huge cave beneath. Sleeping up to 6 (plus cot), it is the largest of our gites and sympathetically restored to a high standard with exposed tuffeau stonework, stained glass windows and unique glazed tower. With 3 good size bedrooms downstairs (all en-suite, 1 bathroom and 2 shower rooms all with private toilet), it is perfect for comfortably accommodating a family or group of friends. The bedrooms are traditionally furnished with quality bed linen. The upstairs open-plan living area works well for entertaining, with a fully equipped kitchen and large comfy sofas for relaxing in the lounge area. The kitchen leads directly out onto a beautiful raised oak terrace. This child-safe deck offers complete seclusion and shade and has wonderful views over the grounds; perfect for mealtimes and enjoying the glorious sunsets. Alternatively, the ground floor sun terrace is great for barbecuing and overlooks the garden.


About the property

Le Logis du Pressoir

Le Logis du Pressoir is an 18th Century former wine estate, set in the historic hamlet of Brion in 3 acres of beautiful, secluded grounds complete with a small vineyard and fruit orchard. It is the ideal retreat for holidaying as a couple, a family or with friends, offering tranquility and relaxation in a delightful setting. Children adore the freedom to explore and play in our extensive grounds, while parents relax close by. Great care has been taken in the renovation to preserve its unique features and charm whilst providing every comfort and high quality amenities. Each gite is well equipped for your self-catering needs; family and French cookery enthusiasts alike. Guests always comment on our attention to detail and the child friendly nature of the property. Enjoy our heated pool, boules, table tennis, bikes and great walking and cycling straight from the garden. After a day sightseeing, it's the perfect place to take a dip, read, paint, or just unwind with an aperitif.

Additional Information:: We have a selection of reading material in each gite as well as a central collection of books, board games and an extensive DVD collection available to all guests.

Having a young child ourselves, there are plenty of children's games and toys (indoors and outdoors) to make good use of. We also have a dedicated play area with swing and slide, playhouse and cars and tricycles.

There are lakes nearby with sandy beach areas for paddling and using buckets and spades, which make a great alternative to days by the pool.

Owners on site: As owners on site, Mark and Lisa are always available to help with anything you might need to ensure you have a really enjoyable and comfortable holiday.
