SPA / SWEAT LODGE

This large house is situated on two floors with a total of 115 sq m surface area. Here we have brought together the charm of the old with a very contemporary style of furnishing, decoration and stimulating colours.

(Number of persons: 4)
On the ground floor, with its huge ceilings of 3m50, is a large dining room of some 30 sq m with a fully fitted open kitchen adjoining and a living room. The kitchen area has good natural lighting and a farmhouse table with Philippe Starck chairs. The flooring is dark grey metallic; the large stone fireplace dating from the beginning of last century is fitted with a wood-burning stove; the beams are exposed and the room looks out onto the main courtyard. The living room (20 sq m) overlooks the terrace and the park.

A narrow flight of stairs leads to the first floor, into the eves and the 17th century roof structure. The large bedroom (15 sq m) with parquet made from tropical wood (wenge), whitewashed walls and beams is a haven of peace. The decoration is decidedly modern with white gloss Austin Powers furniture (1m60 king-size bed, two console tables, two small seats, a mirror and a designer bookcase). A second bedroom, also with parquet flooring, has twin 90cm beds in red gloss and a chest of drawers. The two bedrooms share a large dressing room.

The shower-room is Japanese in style featuring bright red, chocolate and ecru. It is a very light room and has a wonderful view onto the Seudre, the neighbouring salt marshes and the main courtyard. The large shower itself is 1m20 x 1m and there are twin washbasins; separate WC.
