Photos and Description of this 6 bedroom holiday chateau / country house in Saint-Gervais-les-Trois-Clochers - Maison du Jardin
Maison Du Jardin dates back to the late 15th century.
Maison Du Jardin dates back to the late 15th century. It is designed in the style of a 'Classic Fortified Manor'. Local legend states that the main tower was once taller, however during the French Revolution it was reduced.
The property is enclosed and walled, which allows for extra privacy. There is a wonderful large saltwater lap pool, with new high end sun chaises.
The Guest house or original Dovecot is comfortable and independent with its own kitchen and bathroom, yet romantic with its lofty bedroom. Next to the 'Dovecot' is a 'bunkroom', small and private room for a single guest who likes to 'do their own thing'. The bunk room has its own bathroom.
The main house is comfortable and elegant. Most furnishings are from the 18th century. Many furnishings are brand new and very comfortable. The Kitchen with AGA stove allows you to fine tune your French cooking skills! The Kitchen has a large solid oak dining table.
All spaces are uncluttered and have wonderful views of the surrounding fields. The house, because of its ancient construction, stays comfortable and cool day and night. This property allows its guests to experience living in a time that has long past with all modern comforts and conveniences.
Tranquillity, fragrance and sun will rejuvenate you very quickly at Maison Du Jardin. The enclosed/walled estate allows for guests to dine alfresco, lounge in the lawn on comfortable Hugonet furniture, play a game of Badminton, work on a project in the pavilion or sunbathe next to the saltwater lap pool.
Morning visits to the local bakery will ensure you will have buttery croissants in the morning with your French pressed coffee. Morning laps in the pool may be rewarded with a large French Provincial Lunch later. There are plenty of places to take a nap either outside or back in your room.

About Oliver's Travels - France
Your time off is precious. So when you go away, why not make an occasion of it and book somewhere a bit… different?
At Oliver’s Travels we don’t do ordinary. But if you’re looking to rent somewhere quirky, unique and bursting with more character than a bottle of ’59 Lafite Rothschild, we��ve got some stunning luxury villas for you to choose from.
Fancy a romantic weekend for two in a lighthouse, a week away in a converted windmill, or a fortnight relaxing with friends in the grounds of a French chateau?
We’ve got them all here at Oliver’s Travels. Each one of our properties is handpicked by our team to guarantee you a truly memorable luxury villa holiday. By booking direct with the owner from around £40 per person per night, you can experience luxury without burning a hole in your pocket.
Where did it all start?
In 2003, my best mate Ravi and I spent a week at Chateau de Cardou in the Dordogne with a group of our closest friends. It was one of those holidays you never forget. The chateau was stunning, the wine was flowing and the weather was pretty much perfect. Best of all, we had the whole place to ourselves.
As it turns out, that holiday was the start of something pretty special. Before we’d even got back to England, Ravi and I had come up with the basic idea for our first business, Simply Chateau: a website where people could find and book exclusive, luxury villas without having to shell out a fortune.
Why Oliver's Travels - France chose Saint-Gervais-les-Trois-Clochers
Where are we today?
We���ve grown a bit since then. We’ve now got a team of people who love travelling just as much as we do. Between us, we’ve handpicked every one of the properties you’ll find on the site.
Our emphasis is still on quirky, lavish, one-of-a-kind places to stay, but we now offer villas, castles, stately homes, beach huts and cottages, as well as chateaux – not just in France, but across Europe and the Caribbean.
You may have noticed we’ve changed our name too. Ravi took a bit of persuading, but in the end we agreed on Oliver’s Travels!
