Holiday Rental House
When the well-to-do of the French bourgeoisie of the late 1900s wanted homes to impress, the classical elegance of a ‘Maison de Maitre’ like Joli Fleuron was the grand design of the day. The 3-storey house is steeped in period style and has been completely renovated in recent years so up to 12 people, plus two babies, can stay in the lap of French luxury. The authentic character of the house has been retained, from the imposing stone fireplace in the Grand Salon to traditional French furnishings, but Joli Fleuron has all 'mod cons' too, including a Nespresso in the well-equipped open plan dining room / kitchen, American fridge-freezer/ice maker, free Wi-Fi and a games console. Everyone can come together to watch UK Freesat TV and DVD’s, or play board games, in the large and comfortable Gr...When the well-to-do of the French bourgeoisie of the late 1900s wanted homes to impress, the classical elegance of a ‘Maison de Maitre’ like Joli Fleuron was the grand design of the day.

Everyone can come together to watch UK Freesat TV and DVD’s, or play board games, in the large and comfortable Grand Salon or children can escape to a lounge of their own on the top floor, where the games console awaits and another DVD player. Two master bedrooms are also on the top floor, with beautiful beamed ceilings and luxury ensuite bathrooms, while four other ensuite bedrooms are on the first floor. Five of the bedrooms have King-size beds, the last bedroom has twin single beds. Two cots are also available along with two high chairs and stair gates on all staircases can be fitted on request. The house is set in a generous, well-tended garden and has a commanding position, overlooking the hills and vineyards of the Duras vineyards. What could be more civilised than a game of croquet or badminton on the lawn and reclining by the heated salt-water pool, which is securely fenced with a child-proof gate. The pool has twelve sun loungers. Children have plenty of space to play in the garden, complete with a swing set and table tennis. Grownups can relax, with fine local wines to hand, on a patio of luxury outdoor furniture or the al fresco dining terrace for 12 which has a Weber BBQ. All bedlinen and towels are included. The property is strictly no smoking inside and no pets. We can arrange private catering (from picnics to formal dining), patisserie lessons and bike hire on request. More

The house is stunning, a lot of work and thought has gone into the detail of Joli Fleuron. We had four couples staying as our guests from as far as Australia, Spain and Norway everybody loved the house. It has a lovely laid back feel...More

About the neighbourhood
The medieval town of Duras is just 5 minute’s drive, with a good variety of shops, cafes and restaurants, a large chateau and a bustling market on Monday mornings. Lots of vineyards close by offer tours and wine tastings, from the local Domaines to the big Bordeaux wine houses, including Montbazillac and St Emillion, which is a very pretty town to explore and a world heritage site. The entire area is filled with charming little market towns which hold tourist-friendly events throughout the Summer months such as nightly food markets where you can eat a wide variety of foods whilst listening to live music.
