Le Grand Maine
Le Grand Maine is located in a very quiet, tranquil and rural location, 800M outside of the village of Villeneuve-de-Duras, Aquitaine in South Western France.
The House is surrounded by vines and plum trees and sits in a hectare of mature grounds with a private pool and superb sunbathing terrace. Our village has its own boulangerie which is within walking distance for fresh croissants, baguettes and bread.
The design of the house is a typical design for the region...a 'Maison sous sol'.
This style is designed for 1st floor living and typically has a balcony. The Gite is on the 1st floor of our home and boasts a huge balcony/outdoor terrace with plenty of garden furniture, perfect for al fresco dining and drinking in the superb views over the neighbouring orchards and vineyards.
Although secluded, Le Grand Maine is just 8 km from the small town of Duras with its imposing Chateau, and full range of shops, a Carrefour Supermarket, Chemist, Doctors, Dentists, Banks, Bars and Restaurants. The popular Bastide town of Sainte Foy la Grande is only 10 km away, its weekly market on a Saturday morning is one of the best in the region.
Gite Grand Maine is only 10 minutes from the famous region of the Dordogne, which makes it an ideal base for exploring the area. We are lucky to be in the most stunning countryside location along with beautiful chateaux and prehistoric caves.
The local night markets are a great way to enjoy the French ambience.
The bright and spacious self contained Gite is on the 1st floor and sleeps six in comfort, with one King sized double and two twin bedrooms. The second bedroom has the option to be king size as the singles can clip together, should this be desired. The kitchen/breakfast room area is very well equipped, and the living room has (UK) Satellite TV/DVD player.
Free WiFi is provided.
It is our ambition to provide accommodation we would seek ourselves if it were our own holiday, so the accent is firmly upon your total comfort and a warm welcome.
We invite you to join us in our truly peaceful and tranquil location. Ideal for 'getting away from it all' and winding down, both for couples, a group of friends, or as a family.
