the Grande-Maison

Peycibeau - Grande-Maison

The magnificent Grande-maison is of huge proportions and is perfectly suited to catering for large numbers, whilst offering various different living areas to ensure that guests, if they wish, can enjoy some privacy and independence from one another. The property particularly lends itself to special family occasions and has hosted for example 50th wedding anniversary celebrations with three generations of a family gathering together, and also special birthdays - 40/50/60ths - what better excuse for family & friends to holiday together for a week or two to celebrate!

In addition to the wonderful setting, we can offer help in organising certain aspects of your holiday - for example a chef to come to the house to prepare & serve a delicious gourmet dinner; a pizza evening - we can either host the whole thing for you or teach you the tricks of the trade; restaurant recommendations and tips on the local wines; babysitting, food shopping and a full maid service so that everyone can enjoy a truly relaxing holiday.

Available exclusively for the months of June, July, August & September, the Grande-maison is the main part of this fabulous house: 5 large bedrooms in total which sleep 10 guests - a further 4 children (5 including the cot) can be accommodated on comfortable sofa-beds in some of the bedrooms.

Apart from its magical setting and the scale of Peycibeau, it is also the luxuriously appointed and beautifully decorated interior of the house that sets this holiday home apart from the rest. A few of the rooms for you to enjoy for example would be the calm and relaxing library on the first floor landing, the elegant drawing room, the impressive marble-floored hallway with its grand piano and equally grand staircase, and a magnificent reception room of truly stately home proportions with no less than five pair of French doors opening out onto the courtyard - at one end of this stunning space a large dining area, centred around the fireplace a lounging area with designer leather sofas, and at the other end a full-size snooker table.

The main part of the house has 4 bedrooms upstairs: a double bedroom with en suite shower-room and dressing room; a twin bedroom with additional sofa-bed; one of the master bedrooms which adjoins another double bedroom, each with their own dressing room. These three bedrooms share a luxurious central bathroom. Downstairs is the second of the master bedrooms - a beautiful large suite with French doors opening into the courtyard, it has a large double bed and a sofa-bed, en suite bathroom and a dressing room, and because this bedroom is on the ground floor it is extremely suitable for elderly guests. Three of the bedrooms have air-conditioning. If required the full size cot can be placed in any of the bedrooms.

Beside the house, just the other side of the courtyard, is the heated swimming pool (9m x 4m with a uniform depth of 1.4m) and once the summer months arrive, the superb summer house overlooking the pool adds a fabulous dimension to life at Peycibeau (See Peycibeau/Summer House). Daytime or evening, dining 'al fresco' in this shaded arbri, looking out over the Peycibeau landscape is really the perfect way to spend a holiday with family and friends!

Because one of the bedrooms and all the living accommodation are on the ground floor and there are various wide entrances, with the help of very shallow ramps being put into place if requested, many areas of the house are accessible by wheelchair. Similarly, the swimming pool is also accessible by wheelchair from the house, so too is the summer house, with the aid of some ramps. Please ask for more specific details about this.

Wi-Fi internet covers the house & grounds - so you could pick-up your e-mails whilst sun-bathing around the pool ... if you really have to! TV's are available in various rooms for watching either Freeview satellite TV or DVDs and there is a Sonos system in the summer house that you can connect to via your own device (iPhone, iPad etc)

Electric gates to the Peycibeau estate ensure complete seclusion. Guests are invited to roam around our 42 acres of private countryside - not another house in sight! Relax in the courtyard garden where the soothing sound of the fountain, the scent of the lavender, and the perfect shades of pink roses all mingle together to entice your senses. Sit out and sun yourself on one of the numerous terraces, which all have garden furniture or sun-beds and parasols. If it is the right time of the morning or evening, you might see the deer grazing in the meadow, or a hot air balloon floating by.

As well as the hours of fun to be enjoyed in the pool, children have the parkland all around to play in safely and the surrounding woods to explore - there is a wonderful tree-house with a rope-swing, a large trampoline, and for smaller children a play area with swings and a slide.

The produce of our land is yours to enjoy: we have a well-stocked herb garden just outside the kitchen door, we usually grow tomatoes, cherry, apple and walnut trees, and wild mushrooms (if in doubt ask at the pharmacy in the village and they will tell you which are edible - or not!)

There is ample parking close to the house. We try to be environmentally conscious here at Peycibeau - the swimming pool is solar-heated, as is the domestic hot water. We make our own bio-fuel for the tractor, and we encourage guests to do as we do and recycle their rubbish during their stay.
