Villa overview - owner's description
Maison du Marineu is a beautifully refurbished medieval mansion set right out into the tranquil Aquitaine countryside, with use of your own private 6 x 12 metre swimming pool. The mansion itself holds up to 8 guests, but the historic tower can also be privatised and included for an extra 4 guests in two gorgeous en-suite double bedrooms.
The house is surrounded by luscious parkland, including a tennis court and scented garden that wafts the aromas of the lavender plants around the property, making the idyllic outdoor seating areas that much sweeter. The interiors are full of traditional touches like the stone flooring, ornate fireplaces and the main living space has a sociable open plan lay out that include the kitchen, sofas and a dining area.
The Inner Courtyard: here, the handsome local wood takes centre stage. The courtyard with its ancient beams and perfectly controlled assembly is of great majesty. The beautiful covered terrace, overlooking the courtyard, is an opportunity for impromptu and lively dinners on summer evenings in an exceptional setting.
The Park: The large park flirts with the medieval spirit : squares of relaxing and calming greenery, the chapel's garden to meditate, a large lawn for a ball game, lime tree's bouquets near the fountain ... The Scented Garden offers scents and colours of fresh herbs. In a secluded area in the park, pick succulent vegetables in the kitchen-garden.
The Living Room: The house is primarily the friends house with a large living room where the kitchen stands alongside the dining and living room. While some are busy cooking, others are occupied around the table or sitting in the large sofa near the fireplace ... friendliness guaranteed! For a great atmosphere, you can connect your phone or computer to listen to your favourite music since the room and the covered terrace is entirely equipped with a sound system. An upright piano, regularly granted, await you for a few notes ...
The Kitchen: Functional and perfectly equipped, the kitchen has a food processor, fridge - freezer, electric oven with a 4 gas hobs cooker, dishwasher and cookware. The beautiful display is sufficiently stocked with dishes to draw a pretty table. On arrival, you will find the staples . The " pile " , a semi-underground space where the temperature remains almost constant, will allow you to keep your shopping back from the market. You can dine around the large table and under the covered terrace where the air is so fresh in summer. To add to your comfort, you can get different services for your breakfasts, lunch baskets or dinners.
2 Double Bedrooms: Both located on the ground floor of the house, one facing the Scented Garden, the other the garden. Large bedrooms with a king size bed (anti-acarid bedding and cotton linen), wardrobe, closet and dresser. On demand, these two rooms can be converted into twin bedrooms.
