Bouchon Haut is a beautifully restored former farm house. It is the main house on the former farm estate.
Downstairs, there is a large, very well-equipped kitchen which leads (via a utility room with a downstairs WC) to a large covered terrace. The terrace overlooks a large part of Bouchon’s grounds and has wonderful views of the surrounding countryside. It’s a lovely place to spend time with friends and family and watch the sunset over a glass or two of the local wine..
The downstairs also includes a large, more formal, dining room and a cosy “winter” sitting room and a “summer” sitting room with large double doors opening out onto a South-West facing terrace.
Upstairs there are two en-suite double bedrooms (both including larger than normal double beds), and a twin bedroom together with a separate “family” shower room and WC. There is also a study area upstairs with a laptop connected to the internet. Wifi is available throughout the house.
Bouchon is located on what was formerly a royal hunting track, said to be where the much loved King Henri IV hunted. One can follow the path for miles through the ancient oak forests and vineyards following a small river.
In total, the grounds at Bouchon extend to around 8 acres, the greater part of which is for the use of Bouchon Haut. The grounds are surrounded by farmers fields, so guests can be guaranteed seclusion and privacy.
The grounds include a pool (12x6m) which is shared between Bouchon Haut and Bouchon Bas.
There is a large trampoline and toys together with a number of mountain bikes and garden games to keep everyone entertained – including a table tennis table under cover in the open barn.
In the “artists studio” room above the barn Bouchon Haut also has a small gym which is equipped with a bike (spinning type), cross-trainer, weights, bench, exercise ball, tv and dvd/bluray player.
There is an extensive DVD selection (with a 40 inch LCD tv and bluray player) . On the music side, there is a wide selection of CDs and two Sony mini stereo systems which have bluetooth capability (for connecting to phones/ipads/iphones).
