La Grande Maison is a rare gem.
Restored in 2010, it presents the highest possible level of quality and comfort wherever you look.
Let`s start with the size, 230 sqm of comfortable living space.
The style of La Grande Maison is French elegance at its best. From the impressive panelled reception hall with its crystal chandelier, the graciously curved stone staircase, to the quality furnishings and antique furniture the overriding sense is one of a high standard of workmanship.
Next, the kitchen – gourmet cooking almost does not do it justice, with its Lacanche oven, long, zinc-topped work table with inset stone pastry board, a special double width fridge to keep large platters fresh, mixers, blenders and an ice cream maker and finally, 2 dishwashers to make cleaning up quick and easy. There is ample space for several cooks to share food preparation without argument!
Now, step onto the expansive (50 sq m) roof top terrace where you can further test your cooking skills on the fully equipped outdoor kitchen including a wood burning pizza oven and gas-fired barbeque with separate side burners, a sink and chopping/prep facility as well as an outdoor fridge for chilling your drinks.
Take your food exploits to the large (seats 10) traditional tiled dining table, not forgetting of course to remove from the refrigerator your bottle of Meursault premier cru chardonnay!
As you lift your glasses, also lift your eyes to the stunning panoramic view of the eastern slopes of Meursault`s celebrated vineyards.
We are yet to mention its location. La Grande Maison is perfectly situated in the centre of Meursault, a few steps from the main village square with its cafes, wine-bars, shops, restaurants and weekly market.
La Grande Maison is an extensive and beautifully renovated property that can be rented exclusively for large groups up to 14 or as four individual houses for smaller groups of 2, 4 or 6 people.
