Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
Chateau du Faure, St. Emilion, Bordeaux, France, sleeps 16-50 in 25 bedrooms.
Domaine du Faure is a unique recently restored wine estate, set in 20 acres of beautiful and totally peaceful French countryside just 25 kms from St. Emilion. Built in the 18th century, the restoration – specifically as the home of the Orpheus and Bacchus Music and Wine Festival - has provided a unique flexibility of accommodation and retained all the original features, in particular the oak beams, which abound.
For small groups of 10-16 guests we offer the choice of three large houses (each very different characters and with 8 en-suite double or twin bedrooms, luxury kitchens and own pools) set around a large courtyard. Each bathroom has bath w/shower or shower.
Le Faure, a traditional maison-de-maitre exuding 18th-century style, with large terrace and pool, overlooks the valley. L'Orangerie, set in a 3-acre walled garden with pool & offering a beautiful salon with state-of-the-art Krell/Quad/Meridian hifi and 1869 Erard piano, a cinema room with 120 inch screen and free-to-air UK channels and dining room including snooker table. Each bedroom has direct access onto a large terrace.
La Musique has a stunning 200m2 salon containing a truly awesome cinema with 120 inch screen and full Sky TV channels, dining area, salon area, snooker table, plus a wonderful 2001 Steinway B concert grand piano of a quality equal to or surpassing major concert venues. Very large garden with pool.
The three properties share a new all-weather tennis court, croquet lawn and boules court in the furthest part of the grounds, plus a 9-hole golf course and football field. Otherwise each house is totally separated from its neighbours. For up to 32 guests we offer La Musique and L’Orangerie, adapting the facilities by using the Orangerie for dining and La Musique for entertainment (the properties interconnect as the two kitchens become one). For up to 48 guests we offer the total estate, again with dining in L'Orangerie and with full use of the otherwise off-limits courtyard.
The property is increasingly hired for residential live music events throughout the year. The range of options is extensive, from mini-bus and sports car hire to chateaux visits and chef or "chalet girl."
Prices vary on time of year and start from £1,395/week for 8 bedrooms.
