At La Buanderie, you'll find four-star luxury and a taste of the sought-after Chateau estate lifestyle at a reasonable price point.
This impressive late 19th-century country house boasts a contemporary interior, Shaker-style kitchen and lofty ceilings - the front door alone stands at 3m high! There are also two spacious lounges, four large bedrooms, a family bathroom and an en-suite, sleeping nine in total. Set well into the forest, you won't be disturbed by any road noise here. The estate’s drive is a kilometre in length! There's also plenty of parking available.

But the appeal of La Buanderie doesn't stop there - you simply need to step outside. Within the property’s private walled garden, which stretches to 3000m2. The swimming pool within it is for the exclusive use of this property. The garden was formerly the neighbouring chateau’s vegetable garden, you'll find beautiful planting with rhododendrons, camellias and azaleas and charming pathways. With a pond just the other side of one wall, keep your eyes peeled for the occasional heron flying by as you laze in the sun. The bright yellow and black salamanders that are are included in the region's crest, might also catch your eye, as they bask on the warm stone (although they are more often hiding underneath them).

Beyond the gardens, a 40-acre, private oak forest awaits. There are many meandering tracks, leading you through the leafy canopy to lakes, meadows and more woodland. Wild boar, booted eagles, buzzards, woodpeckers, cuckoos, owls and deer can all be found here. There's also a resident turtle on one pond, and the elusive red squirrels have also made homes here.

Back at the property, you’ll find all the tools you need to make the most of the wildlife that is, quite literally, on your doorstep. A portable hide and binoculars will help you track down the animal and birdlife you seek, while a digital microscope and new slides, included in your welcome pack, will make even the forest’s smallest species accessible, from butterflies and insects to fungi. And for those with more botanical and arboreal interests, the Suunto height meter will allow you to get the measure of the forest’s towering oaks. There’s even an infrared trail camera, helping you to scout out the most secretive of wildlife during your stay.

As you explore the estate, you'll also discover the charming stables, dog kennels and chapel, all of which boast authentic and romantic French architecture. The estate is shared with five other owners, as well as horses, ponies and other pets. A plan of the estate is available at the house, indicating where the private zones are located, to help you explore the forest and its wildlife.

Kitchen

The Shaker-style kitchen is modern and well equipped, with a fridge-freezer, pull-out pantry, dishwasher, ovens (fan / multi / microwave), hob, washing machine and tumble dryer - ideal after a day walking in the forest.

Two living rooms

Both are furnished with comfortable sofa suites. In a chest, you will find plenty of toys for children as well as games including badminton, pétanque and croquet for guests to enjoy. In one living room you will find TV and DVD player with surround sound. In the other a farmhouse style table and benches for 10 and a hi-fi system. There are also a range of CD players and iPhone docks available to guests in bedrooms.

Bathrooms

There is a modern toilet and sink located downstairs for convenience. The master bedroom benefits from an en-suite, complete with a shower and bidet. There is also a family bathroom, which includes a bath with an overhead shower. A selection of luxurious Molton Brown products await you on arrival.

Bedrooms

Young children and babies
