It’s luxurious but laid back, comfort and balance truly are at its heart…” Lady B
The rooms in our stunning, large and very comfortable 200 year old Maison de Maitre are airy and luxurious with big windows looking over the gardens and vinyards. They can also be cosy and cosseting with the lights on low and the wood burner lit. Sometimes we need to feel the wind in our hair and the earth beneath our feet – sometimes we want to snuggle down into a big blanket and be wrapped up like a child.
The house was originally built over a thousand years ago, it was a Chateau with a tower. Over 200 years ago it was rebuilt as a Maison de Maitre, we still have the original foundations and cave (cellar) and the locals still call it the Chateau de Mouillac.
We are surrounded by vines, woods and horses with many different walks right from the doorstep. We have untreated fruit trees – cherries, apples, pears, nuts, plums, apricots, a vegetable garden and fruit vines. The woods are a foragers paradise full of mushrooms, nuts fruit and leaves. We often see the local deer as we walk, they live amongst the vines surrounding the house and in the nearby woods.
The outdoor heated pool (28°-33°) is open in the summer months, usually April – October depending on the weather. At 12 metres long it is good for a proper swim and a lovely place to lie on the terrace bathed in sunshine. It has a retractable cover so that on the rare occasion the weather is awful you can still enjoy it.
Release toxins and aid relaxation in the infrared sauna. Heat, tranquillity, rest… perfect. Relax in the, very effective, massage chair.
Enjoy breakfast on the terrace, lunch by the pool, dinner in the covered outdoor sitting room – or take them all in the house if you prefer, you choose!
For retreats, we provide support when you need it and we also appreciate your need for quiet time, privacy and space.
