2 Les Mauvillains
Elegant 18th century manor nestled in the Cote de Blaye vineyards, 20 kilometers north of Blaye on the Gironde estuary. Swimming pool, dinner, jacuzzi, beautiful garden setting.
Description of Chambres D'Hotes:Our home is a beautifully restored "maison de maître" with three holiday suites, two self-catering cottages, and the main manor on 8 acres of wooded land. The entire property is surrounded by the vineyards of Côte de Blaye. The house dates largely from the 18th century with the oldest part dating back to the 16th century. The house was once owned by one of the king's tax collectors. Our property is very secluded. This private location will ensure an exceptionally calm setting for your vacation or weekend getaway.
We offer breakfast for guests staying in the holiday suites, and all guests can reserve a place at the dinner table where we serve a traditional French meal and superb wines of the Bordeaux area.
La Sauvageonne is an ideal destination for wine lovers and walking enthusiasts alike and lies central to both beach and vineyards. A half of an hour to the south, you can drive to many excellent vineyards near Blaye, Bourg, and further on to Saint Emillion. If you head north, you'll reach the beaches of Royan in under 45 minutes. Closer to home, the Gironde estuary is seven kilometers away and is bordered by a large 35km x 7km acre marsh which serves as a natural reserve. The reserve has several narrow paved trails and makes for an ideal circuit for cyclists. Lastly, if you simply want to relax by the poolside, we'll be glad to serve lunch or snacks and provide beverages throughout the day
