Overview

Photos and Description of this 10 bedroom holiday chateau / country house in Bardigues - Lavayssière

Luxury Manoir, heated indoor pool, jacuzzi, outdoor pool, tennis court, 30 acres

A grand 18th century Gascon Manoir. Boutique luxury overlooking the verdant, sun-drenched valleys of South West France.

Updated for the 21st century.

Outside: sprawling landscaped gardens and terraces, a stunning pool and a brand new tennis court – all with spectacular views – set amidst 30 acres of pristine meadow and woodland.

Inside: 10,000 square feet of space, including 10 double bedrooms, a luxurious heated indoor pool and 9 person jacuzzi, a double-height entertainment area, a concert piano, satellite-enabled flat-screen TVs, a multi-zone Sonos/Bose digital sound system and Wi-Fi throughout.

All exclusively for your enjoyment.

The house and gîtes: This large Gascon farm house, dating in parts from the 1700s, is built on a hillside over three levels. It opens to reveal a spacious interior, beautifully equipped and styled.

The ground floor is tiled throughout with hand-crafted terracotta tiles, beneath which lies an underfloor pipe system which keeps the house warm in winter and cool in summer. The salon – opening out on to a west-facing veranda – features an original limestone fireplace, open on both sides. The house has Wi-Fi throughout. A Sonos digital sound system powers integrated Bose speakers in three zones: entertainment area, games room and master bedroom. Browse our music library and if it’s not your taste then you can connect your iPods/iPads directly to the system!

The two gîtes are modern duplexes formed out of the Lavayssière barn building. The ground floor of each gîte consists of an open-plan kitchen/diner/living area. Upstairs are two double bedrooms and a bathroom with both bath and shower.

The indoor pool and jacuzzi: The 4m x 11m indoor pool, situated in the barn, is heated to 30°C, for year-round use. The folding floor-to-ceiling windows open to the fresh air in the summer months. In winter the windows afford views of secluded gardens while guests enjoy a swim in balmy temperatures. Relax and unwind in the full-featured 9-seat jacuzzi, heated to 38°C.

The pool area features integrated Bose speakers run from a state-of-the art Sonos digital music system. An iPod dock allows guests to play their own music across the system. Changing, bathroom and shower facilities are available directly from the pool.

Grounds, outdoor pool and tennis court: 30 acres of Lavayssière are available for your exclusive use during your stay. Mature gardens surround the house; garden paths, limestone terraces and wooden decks link it all together. Beyond the gardens, walk across the meadows, explore the woods down to the stream at the bottom of the valley. With luck you’ll catch a glimpse of deer drinking at the pond or feeding on fallen pears.

Surrounded by orchards the house and gites occupy a commanding position over the valley: enjoy stunning views of the Gascon countryside; watch the sun set over the impossibly picturesque village of Bardigues.

Swim in the outdoor 5m x 10m pool, or simply relax on sun loungers. For fitness and fun in equal measure take advantage of our brand-new all-weather tennis court.

Fabulous house and property, idyliic setting

  • 5 out of 5
As soon as we arrived at Lavayssière we realised we'd made a great choice. The property and grounds are beautiful and well maintained, the facilities were exactly as described and it provided a wonderful setting for a few days r&r, as well as a great base to explore the region. There are numerous local restaurants and the picturesque town of Auvillars is just a few km away. Thoroughly recommend this property, especially for large family groups as there is something for everyone and all age ranges. We'll be coming again for sure

Everything you could ever want

  • 5 out of 5
A magnificent house in a stunning location, Lavayssiere has everything you could want for a fun, relaxing and hassle free holiday. We went as a large group of friends but, equally, the house caters for children so a couple of families could happily stay there together. A tennis court, an indoor AND outdoor pool, rambling walks in the rolling countryside, dinners outside on the spacious balcony - I really couldn't recommend it highly enough!

Avec plaisir!

  • 5 out of 5
Our group of six couples with eight young children came from Vancouver, Canada to Lavayssière to celebrate the 40th birthday of the men, who have been friends since primary school. Lavayssière was the perfect location to celebrate this once-in-a-lifetime event. It was big enough that everyone had their own space, but we could all gather together inside or outside for meals, conversation, or for the kids to play. The house, gîtes, pools and grounds are even more beautiful in person than they are in the photos. Plus the surrounding countryside and towns are full of amazing things to see, do, eat and drink! We wouldn’t hesitate to highly recommend Lavayssière, and hope to come back, perhaps to celebrate our 50th birthdays…. [Joanna, Daniel, Ava (6), and Mia (4) – North Vancouver, Canada]

Lavayssiere

  • 5 out of 5
Our first extended family holiday at Lavayssiere was a great success & one we would highly recommend. The house and annexe are extremely comfortable and well equipped. It is clear that the property is a much-loved holiday home and simple touches (plenty of children's toys/DVDs) made for a very relaxing holiday. We also made good use of both swimming pools and the tennis court.

The villa has wonderful views - the surrounding countryside is lovely and unspoilt. A good choice of local restaurants also made for a relaxing holiday and the owner provided details of some fun local excursions. We particularly enjoyed the watermark and zip-wire activity centre.

We hope to return!

A Gorgeous Easter Break at Lavayssière

  • 5 out of 5
Our week at Lavayssière was magical! The property is so welcoming, so well thought out and so rich in comforts that it's so easy to switch off, relax and enjoy :-) Both children and adults enjoyed the many facilities Lavayssière has to offer and even with the weather being a little hit and miss, we enjoyed every moment of it. I have no reservation in saying that everyone from our group of 20 (10 Adults & 10 Children) wouldn't hesitate in recommending Lavayssière and we're all keen to return.

From the initial contact with Ronan and Jemma, to the warm reception we received from Celine, to the sweet Mme Mousseron and the flexibility of Camille from Auberge de Bardigues (the local restaurant that was outstanding in every way), this was an amazing holiday!

An absolutely wonderful home

  • 5 out of 5
We cannot fault one thing about our stay at Lavayssière. It really is beautiful, well thought out, clean and perfect for families. The area is great to explore but we made use of the two pools, hot tub and tennis courts most days. Very very highly recommended.

A luxury country house estate set in the French South West, between Toulouse and Bordeaux, Lavayssière lies above a valley with stunning views over the Gascon countryside. The estate extends to 30 acres of meadow and woodland, bounded by the fields and orchards of neighbouring farms. Savour the classic bucolic tranquillity of “La France profonde”.

About 20 minutes walk across the valley lies the village of Bardigues, a pretty hamlet with an exceptional restaurant, the Auberge de Bardigues. A 5-minute drive takes you to the spectacular Gallo-Roman town of Auvillar – perched above the river Garonne with commanding views of Quercy to the north. Moissac is 20 minutes drive away. Its 12th century Romanesque abbey and cloisters – one of the most beautiful in France – is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
