Le Pressoir is a 4 bedroom renovated barn conversion complete with the aroma of the wood burner, oak beams and floors which all adds to its authenticity as the local old 'wine press'. With lots of 'home essential' UK touches, it makes the perfect holiday home for family/friends holidaying together.
It's Ideally located only a 2 minute stroll from the village centre with bars/cafes and restaurants & just a 10 minute drive from wonderful 'Blue Flag' sandy beaches with lots of local family attractions nearby.
We don't claim to be 'luxury', we know that's a matter of personal opinion, however we do have a passion for 'detail' in our comfy child-friendly holiday home, offering excellent facilities and a 1st class service.
The kitchen is the social hub of the barn and is very well equipped including a large 5 burner range cooker, (great for when cooking for large numbers), a farmhouse table with 6 chairs and a bench seat for the kids, cafetiere, & for coffee lovers, a Nespresso coffee machine. Also in the kitchen is a dishwasher, microwave, washing machine, large fridge/freezer, 2 additional fridges (to keep the wine & beer nice and cool!) and washing, ironing facilities. Lots of large serving dishes, crockery and cutlery are provided, so there will be no shortage when cooking a large family meal.

We catered for the little ones - high chair with support cushion, booster seat, child-friendly plastic crockery & cutlery, themed placemats, a baby-bottle warmer, hand food blender and bottle steriliser.

However to make things a little easier for your arrival you will find, complimentary, a small supply of items including tea, coffee, sugar, washing-up liquid, dish-cloths, dishwasher tablets, bin bags, kitchen foil, cling-film, toilet rolls and of course, not forgetting a nice bottle of wine...!

Due to the character of the building, the lower ground floor (being semi-basement) has limited natural light although there is a large opening window and two opening picture windows (small window) in the double bedroom and 2 opening picture windows in the kids room. Many clients find this a huge benefit as it keeps the rooms nice & cool in the summer and helps when they want the kids to sleep in a little....!!
The twin bedroom does not have an external window but one internal window above the door that allows light and air in from the hallway.

Le Pressoir's private outdoor eating area is accessible from the sitting room via approx. 7 steps leading down to the terrace, garden & pool area (a stair gate has been fitted at the top). Here you can enjoy the 4m x 5m gazebo, which creates a welcome shade during the summer months. You can all eat together on the terrace or the adults can relax eating dinner whilst next to them, the kids can enjoy the 'kiddies size' table and chairs for their own memorable meal times.
Partially laid to lawn, the garden is surrounded by mature plants, trees, shrubs and flowers and overlooks the pool. A chimney-style barbecue has been provided to ensure that you can cook outside in style. Or have breakfast on the deck area overlooking the pool.....
The garden is divided by a 1.8m fence (with a large Palm tree in front) to the neighbouring property of Le Palmier.
The 12m x 6m shared swimming pool is surrounded by 150m2 of decking. The pool has been specifically designed and built with children's enjoyment in mind. It has a SAFETY FENCE and has LOCKABLE CHILD-GATE.
The shallow end is only 1.05m deep (i.e. shallower than normal), so young children can stand in the water easily.
Adults only hot tub
Why not climb into your own private 3 person hot tub and chill out as the warm waters help you unwind. A perfect place to chat and share your day’s holiday experiences with your family/friends.
Note of pool safety
As parents ourselves, we understand that pool safety is of paramount importance. We take this part of holidaying with us extremely seriously.
The swimming pool, hot tub & sauna is surrounded by a 1.15 metre high 'Norme Francaise' factory made fence/barrier. It has vertical bars to meet with anti-climbing regulations, be aware that some holiday home owners opt for the cheaper fences that do not conform to the French regulations as they have horizontal bars. (NB - Even if you don't book with us, please always check first with holiday home owners, prior to making a reservation, that their pools have the correct safety protection in place).
Our pool area also has a self-sprung lockable gate. On top of these minimum requirements, we supply coded padlocks for extra peace of mind. To maintain the rigidity of the swimming pool gate we have added extra supports to the posts as these get quite a lot of use each day. There is also a detailed sign attached to the swim gate highlighting further information regarding safety within the pool area.
The swimming pool is heated and a thermal cover is supplied to maintain heat overnight. The swimming pool is cleaned and monitored regularly to ensure the highest standards of health and hygiene are maintained.
The swimming pool, 2-person hot tub & 3-person sauna are shared between our 3 properties,
Le Palmier, Le Pressoir and La Pergola.
