Holiday Rental House
Offering french sophistication, effortless natural elegance & genuine laid-back charm, the solid tranquility of THE OLD PRIORY, is set against a glorious backdrop of rolling hills, plum orchards & vineyards, where children can climb trees and run wild through meadows whilst their parents chill out with a cool glass of sauvignon blanc, by the slate-grey pool. The building dates back to the 12th century and is wrapped around a beautiful cobbled courtyard, lending a serene calm to this stunning medieval property. All rooms have superb views, either onto the central courtyard or to the countryside beyond.

The building dates back to the 12th century and is wrapped around a beautiful cobbled courtyard, lending a serene calm to this stunning medieval property. All rooms have superb views, either onto the central courtyard or to the countryside beyond. THE OLD PRIORY is positively organic in its make-up – the stone walls are massive, providing a unique insulation from the heat outside; huge glass windows allow natural light all day, until candles are lit at dusk (lights are rarely switched on in the house until nightfall) With zinc rooves and terracotta tiles, old oak doors, travertine & slate bathrooms and private shady terraces overlooking 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 & sitting room. The kitchen is very well stocked with everything even the most discerning holiday chefs could require including fridge freezer, gas hobs, dishwasher etc. A large barbeque is also on hand – ask owners Fabienne and Frederic for some of their vines (Fabienne’s family have a superb Cotes de Duras vineyard and Frederic is also involved in the international wine business).

3 elderly couples from Sydney Australia have had a superb week in this well appointed house. We wish we could have stayed longer Bordeaux and Paris below us. We loved the pool and the meadow. The house is just wonderful and we appreciated Frederick’s kindness...More
