Domaine de Peyloubčre
Self Catering Cottages in France on 17th Century Chateau Domaine
About the cottages
Domaine de Peyloubčre has five self catering holiday cottages on the estate which accommodate from two to eight people. All the cottages have been refurbished and re-equipped to a high standard of comfort and convenience, with families in mind. Babies and young children are welcomed and suitable equipment, facilities and toys are provided at no charge - see Babies & Toddlers. 'les Rosiers', 'Giulietta', 'Les Cedres', 'Les Iris' and 'Fermier' are all very different in size and shape and, together with the main house, are arranged around a circular rose garden. Each cottage has its own entrance and they are arranged at differing angles to maintain privacy.
Three of the cottages were originally the homes of the 'gardiens' or estate staff and, wherever possible, their period timbered character has been maintained. 'les Rosiers' is located on the ground floor in the south-east wing of the Manoir while 'Les Iris' has been created from the old coach house. Each cottage has its own garden where meals can be eaten under the shade of old established trees.
The cottages are fully centrally heated and available to let throughout the year with the exception of 'Les Iris' which is only available between May and October. 'Fermier' and 'les Rosiers' have wood burning stoves making them favourites during winter months. During the High Season, bookings are from Saturday to Saturday but at other times, and subject to availability, we are able to be more flexible. Couples who wish to stay in the self catering cottages during the high and mid seasons are offered a 25% discount on the published prices . We request the co-operation of our guests in maintaining the whole of the Domaine as a 'no-smoking' area. We regret that pets are not accepted.
Summary of equipment
A detailed specification of equipment is included in the information for each cottage. In summary, all cottage kitchens are fitted with a full-size cooker or oven/hob, large fridge-freezer, washing machine, dishwasher and microwave and have equipment to cater for the number of people accommodated. All cottages have a television and DVD player, music centre, barbeque and garden furniture. The beds have good quality mattresses, many of them interior-sprung. Furniture is good quality, comfortable and practical and suitable for year-round use.
