Domaine Saint Ferreol, Le Bougainvillaea
House | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Domaine St Ferreol is an authentic vineyard that offers luxurious holiday accommodation for rental and is also an ideal setting for celebrating your special occasion. Located in the heart of the Herault Valley in Languedoc, close to Pezenas (6km) and sunny Mediterranean beaches (25km) there are a wealth of cultural & sporting activities to keep you busy all year round.
Dating back to 822 the ancient Domaine lies in a peaceful 35 acre estate, surrounded by vineyards with 2 acres of wooded parkland, 1 km of riverbank, a bamboo park & natural water gardens and ponds. The extensive grounds include a large secluded pool (13x6M) set in its own landscaped garden. For the children there is an enclosed children's play area with swings, slide, sandpit, table tennis and 14ft trampoline & a large park with plenty of nooks and crannies. The 6 villas have been tastefully restored, retaining many original features & offer a unique blend of traditional Languedoc character with all the luxurious comforts of home.
Named after the ancient & huge Bougainvillaea that climbs up the front of this villa, the deep purple flowers are in bloom for most of the summer and autumn months and provide a stunning floral display.
The interior of le Bougainvillaea is very bright and spacious (26 x 15ft) with 2 large arched French doors at either end, creating a sunny aspect all throughout the day and early evening. The exposed beams and stonewalls in some rooms bring out the property's ancient character. Decorated in the traditional blue and yellow Provencal style, with colourful paintings and country furnishings, the lounge offers a peaceful and relaxing seating area with large sofas and comfortable armchairs, and a dining area seating up to 8 people. For additional relaxation, a TV, dvd player and music centre are also provided.
There is a separate shower room downstairs with shower cubicle, WC, wash hand basin and storage cupboard beneath, ideal for those coming in directly from the pool.
Upstairs there is the second large bathroom with bath and shower attachment, WC, wash hand basin and storage cupboard beneath, again equipped to the highest standard.
The kitchen is separate and adjacent to the lounge and is excellently furnished with cooker, hob, extractor hood, microwave, fridge freezer and dishwasher. There is plenty of storage space for groceries and of course wine!
