La Maison du Lierre
3 Bedroom Cottage which comfortably accommodates 6 people
La Maison du Lierre (Ivy Cottage) provides luxurious, self-catering accommodation on two levels. It has been transformed from a simple, grape-pickers’ cottage to a holiday haven.
Downstairs is an airy, stylishly decorated open-plan sitting, dining and kitchen area with tiled floors and original, exposed beams. The holiday cottage is comfortably furnished with large sofas, satellite TV, DVD and iPod docking station.
The open-plan kitchen is equipped to a high standard with a hob, oven, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine and other electrical items plus cookware, tableware, cutlery and utensils – all provided to help make your holiday as relaxing as possible. WiFi internet access is also available free of charge.
From here it is only a short stroll through the walled grounds of Domaine les Hirondelles to the large, sunny 12m x 6m fenced pool and summer kitchen. French doors open onto your own private garden enclosed on one side by an ivy-clad wall with comfortable seating at the far end. Your garden is set up for outdoor dining and has a teak table and chairs and a Weber gas barbeque.
Up the traditional, terracotta-tiled stairs you will find three sunny bedrooms with wooden floors, two of which overlook the walled garden of Domaine les Hirondelles. The bedrooms are large, bright and welcoming.
Bedroom 1 is very spacious and has a king-sized bed with pocket-sprung mattress. Bedrooms 2 and 3 have superking-sized beds with pocket-sprung mattresses (they can both be made up with two single beds if preferred). All three bedrooms have curtains with blackout lining.
Bedroom 1 has its own en-suite shower room with a powerful shower, basin and WC. Next door there is a large, modern bathroom with full-size bath, shower, basin and WC.
We provide Egyptian cotton bed linen, luxury bath towels, and lightweight bathrobes. Complimentary toiletries can be found in both bathrooms and pool towels are provided and included in the rental price.
To make your stay as comfortable as possible we have also provided a hair dryer, an iron and ironing board, a clothes-airer, pegs and laundry basket as well as a picnic rucksack equipped with plates, glasses and cutlery and cool-bag.
A welcome book and activities guide is in the cottage and offers detailed information and recommendations on what to do and where to eat and drink in the area.
At Domaine les Hirondelles we believe in no hidden costs. All our prices are fully inclusive of cleaning, bed linen, towels (including pool towels) and bathrobes. Baby and toddler equipment such as cots and highchairs is also available free of charge.
If you have any other special requests, please ask and we will do our best to accommodate them.
Our Guest Book
Wow! What can we say other than this beautiful place far exceeded our expectations! Your attention to detail is stunning and your knowledge of this amazing wine region is awesome. There is so much to enjoy within the grounds we found it hard to venture far afield, but there is so much to do in the surrounding area that we wished we had longer to explore.
We all had an absolutely amazing time – the water pistols in the pool certainly saw some action this week! Your attention to detail and wealth of knowledge about the area makes for a wonderful stay.
We have had a fantastic week. The gite is wonderful, as are the gardens and the pool. All the home comforts within such lovely surroundings!
What’s really made our holiday special is this great place: warm and friendly hosts and accommodation that is a real home from home (just a luxurious version!)
How fortunate we were to come across Domaine les Hirondelles. The accommodation is better than any gite/villa we have experienced before and everything has been thought of – particularly with regards to kids.
This is by far the best equipped accommodation we have visited in France, both inside and outside and the children loved it.
From day one we wanted to book again
