The Accommodation

Welcome to Le Bourdil Blanc, your home for the duration of your holiday.

From the moment you turn into the tree-lined drive that leads up to the house, you'll feel your body and mind relax as you realise your holiday has really started.

As you drive up to the house you will glimpse through the trees on the right the tennis court and heated swimming pool, and to the left you will probably see one or two of our horses looking out from their stables in the barn.

Le Bourdil Blanc is a beautiful 18th century manor house, recently restored to its former glory and now a warm, friendly and elegant home comfortably set in its own private grounds extending to over 7 acres

Aside from the pool, tennis court and stable barn, the grounds also feature an ancient pigeonnier, and behind the house is a huge meadow garden, a small fishing/boating lake, a croquet lawn, some lovely mature trees, all bounded by a delightful trout stream. From the house one can enjoy beautiful views over woodlands and fields.

At the entrance you will be met by Bernadette, who, with a welcoming glass of kir will make you feel instantly at home in the spacious, comfortable and warm interior.

Although Le Bourdil Blanc is a private house we encourage all guests to treat it as his or her own. Guests quickly settle in to a 'house party' mode, relaxing around the log fire with a glass of wine and enjoying each other's conversation.


The Grounds

The heated swimming pool (12mx6m) surrounded by ample space for sunbathing is open from dawn till dusk.
