Maison Lamande is our holiday home situated in Blaye, on the banks of the Gironde in SW France. It is a stunning old family town house that has accomodation for 12 people and has a large swimming pool. The house is a 2 minute walk away from the center of Blaye; a lovely old market town built around a Unesco World Heritage listed citadel that overlooks the Gironde Estuary. Blaye is around 30km north of Bordeaux making it an ideal base to explore the Aquitaine region and the vineyards of Bordeaux.
Maison Lamande is a stunning old family town house with a fascinating history, arranged over three floors. It is located in Blaye on the right bank of the Gironde estuary, about 30km north of Bordeaux in the Aquitain region of France. The house is named after the author Andre Lamande, who was born in Blaye and lived in the house while writing one of his most recognised works, Le Jeu d'amour, in 1933.
The house has seen extensive renovation over the last three years. This has included the addition of a large contemporary kichen that overlooks the pool; new bathrooms or shower rooms on all floors; and a completely refurbished top floor. The ground floor comprises a large kitchen with a breakfast bar and a well equipped utility room with a washer/drier and large fridge. The salon, which opens onto the terrace and pool, contains a large table that comfortably seats eight, a satellite linked television and wifi. Also on the ground floor is a shower room and separate w.c.
A marble staircase leads to the first floor on which there are four excellent sized bedrooms and a family bathroom. One of the bedrooms is arranged as a colourfully decorated children's bedroom with a bunk bed and two of the bedrooms have double beds. Access to the second floor is gained through another bedroom on the first floor in which there is sofabed that sleeps two. The second floor has a beautiful mezzanine style master bedroom with a double bed. This spacious room is full of character with wooden beams and a velux window overlooking the estuary. Two smaller bedrooms, each with two single beds, and a bathroom sit off the master bedroom and are accessed from it. In addition there is a cot and a travel cot in the house which can easily be moved in to any of the rooms.
Outside the house is a wonderful terrace and swimming pool that catches sunlight from mid-morning through to late evening. The terrace can be accessed directly from the salon or kitchen and there is a table on the terrace that seats eight. The pool is fitted with a safety cover and is roughly ten metres by six metres, reaching a depth of nearly two metres. The terrace overlooks a garden with a gravel drive and parking for up to four cars.
