Montalivet Vendays – 33930
Rare opportunity, just 3 hours from Paris and 1 hour from Bordeaux. Situated between the sea, a vineyard and a forest, this large house lies in 2 hectares of land. DPE: NC (pending)
This property lends itself to numerous possibilities – a change of lifestyle amid the natural surroundings of forests, vineyards and the sea. Maybe a chance to invest in this rural retreat with friends or even open up a guest house….. Our property is only one hour by plane from Paris, one hour by car from Bordeaux. Professional opportunities have arisen for us and we are regrettably forced to leave our beloved family home to move to a different area of France . The house is located in a beautiful setting of two hectares, home to pine and oak trees and a pond of lotus and water lilies. Close to Vendays-Montalivet, completely private yet not isolated, the house dates back to the 19th century. It has been completely renovated and perfectly restored. The newly added extensions offer modern comforts which harmonise with the original features. The drainage system was redone in 2015, the fuel boiler has recently been changed. A powerful wood burning “stove” is perfect for watching the fire burn from both the kitchen and the dining room.
The extensive living accommodation consists of a large kitchen, big reception rooms, a veranda, five bedrooms (plus two extra bedrooms suitable for guests in the summertime, or as a separate living area complete with a water point). There are three bathrooms and two separate wcs as well as a garage and a storage shed . This house can comfortably accommodate a large number of friends and family. The house also boasts a covered terrace which can be used in both winter and summer. Another terrace is covered in wisteria. The big garden is perfect for sunbathing, the forest is well known for its cep mushrooms and the pond attracts herons and moorhens.
We used to have horses. There are numerous possibilities for hikes from the house, towards the sea or the forest. The Atlantic is only 4 km away, with its wild beaches. The little town of Vendays, with its two schools and shopping facilities is 2 kms away. Montalivet-les-Bains and its summer activities is 8 km from the house while the “sous-préfecture” town of Lesparre is at the end of the “wine road” 17 km away and has both a college and a lycée. Further afield, 20 km from the house, there are beautiful little ports. The lake of Hourtin is 20 km while the beautiful city of Bordeaux is 75 km away.
As a seasonal let, the house is very interesting and popular and we have already established contact with a couple who are responsible for the cleaning and the tending of the grounds. This couple are available all year round and are paid according to the hours worked. Visits to the house can be organised on request.
