Description du bien

Offering French sophistication, effortless natural elegance & genuine laid-back charm the tranquillity of Maison Fontaine, originally a medieval priory, is set against a glorious back drop of rolling hills, plum orchards & vineyards, where children can climb trees and run through meadows whilst you chill out with a cool glass of sauvignon blanc by the slate-grey coloured pool.

The building dates back to the 12th century and is wrapped around a beautiful cobbled courtyard, lending a serene calm to this medieval property. Suitable for up to 6 adults and 4 children.

Maison Fontaine is positively organic in its make-up – the stone walls are thick, providing a unique insulation from the summer heat; huge glass windows allow natural light all day. A private shady terrace overlooks the pool, orchards and fields, it is a naturally tranquil haven.

Overlooking the courtyard to one side and the pool on the other, the main living room of the property is a fabulous open plan space which encompasses kitchen, dining area and sitting room. A second sitting room doubles as the TV room - with a large flat screen TV, DVD player and stack of DVDs, books and board games.

The kitchen is very well stocked with everything even the most discerning holiday chefs could require including fridge freezer, gas hobs, dishwasher etc.

Full Catering service available, prices start at 20 euros per person. A cot & high chair can be provided upon request.

With four fabulous bedrooms (one of which is wheelchair accessible) the property sleeps up to 10 in comfort. Three bedrooms all have generous king size beds which are height adjustable at each end for added comfort, & open-plan en-suite bathrooms. All three bedrooms are easily large enough to place a cot.

The fourth bedroom is a children's paradise – a dormitory den with 4 beds where a secure glass window overlooks the main sitting room, allowing a sneaky peep of the babes at bedtime

Bedrooms 1 and 2 have their own open plan luxury bath, walk-in shower and WC.
Bedroom 3 has a bath with a shower, the WC is situated next to this room and is shared with bedroom 4.

Swimming Pool
The stunning 12mx4m slate grey coloured pool, overlooking fields and orchards, is both alarmed and fenced/gated and has generous steps which stretch the entire width of the pool leading you into the shallow end of 1.10m in depth, the deeper end is 1.40m deep.

Beyond the pool, the enormous garden spreading across 5 acres is large enough for football matches (goal posts available), cricket / rounders or simply to send the kids off on a treasure hunt, although the house and garden are well stocked with toys, a sand pit, swing, seesaw, CDs, books etc.

There is a professional style golf practice net for your use, the picture in the gallery is a stock photo, we just have not had a chance to photograph it as it is so new.

Disabled access
Bedroom 2 is set on the ground floor, is wheelchair friendly with a wet room shower and has flat tiled floors throughout. None of the wide interior doorways on the ground floor have sills or door treads. A ramp allows easy access into the property from the garden and covered deck area.
