Domaine de Sengresse
Domaine de Sengresse is a XVIIth Century Maison de Maitre offering luxury accommodation in a relatively undiscovered corner of South Western France.
The main house offers four Chambre d’hote rooms while across the courtyard, The Little House offers a fifth and /or gîte accommodation.
Set in a park and garden of about three hectares, Sengresse is set in the heart of the Landes countryside only minutes from the River Adour, yet only 1 hour from Biarritz and Pau or 1 ½ from Bordeaux.
Sengresse is an ideal base for enjoying the peace and tranquillity of the area whether walking, cycling or just sitting under the trees in the summer or by a roaring fire in winter.
The domaine, or property, includes the main house, little house, barn and park.
The chosen decor for both houses reveals a mixture of modern and antique furnishings, textiles and fabrics, with an array of wonderful chandeliers, predominantly French in provenance, and a large eclectic collection of art.
In the main house there are four sumptuous en suite bedrooms, each one different from the other: uncluttered and luxurious.
Sumptuous Egyptian cotton bedding, feather duvets and pillows and luxurious fluffy towels …
Internet connection and television in each bedroom.
Further areas within the house to enjoy include the hall with concert Steinway and drawing room with views to the front and back of the house; the library with books from a ‘multitude of subjects’ both in French and English.
On the ground floor the large kitchen with its copper pots, Godin stove and six-oven Aga has direct access to the beamed and elegant dining room peaceful at breakfast time or where candlelight provides a rich and more formal setting for dinner.
For guests who prefer a little more independence the ‘little house’ is just across the gravelled courtyard between the Main House and the cathedral-like barn.
The interior of the ‘little house’ reflects the themes and colours of the main house with Kelims and oriental carpets, beautiful textiles, antique lighting and rich colours that enhance and bring to life exposed beams and brickwork, terracotta tiling and wooden floors complemented by modern bathrooms.
The grounds are a paradise for birds and wild life; green woodpeckers, wrens, tree creepers and red squirrels, even the occasional deer passes by… and at night listen to our resident owls as they make their way around the property….
Enjoy this oasis of calm away from the rush and bustle of everyday life.
Walk beneath the magnificent cedars, the oaks or the limes with their distinctive honey scent; be amazed by the honey locust hanging with its unusual bean shaped pod; enjoy the fruits of cherries or collect the sweet chestnuts and walnuts as they fall to the ground in autumn.
In spring carpets of celandines, primroses and violets, or in late summer sheets of pale pink cyclamen…
The barn, a relic of a previous era, remains untouched: its stone pillars, massive beams and spectacular roof timbers in the shape of an ‘up-turned boat’ recall the skills of ancient craftsmen.
The swimming pool, open between late April and October, twelve by six metres with special salometre filtration system, offers exercise or relaxation; outside solar shower.
A private space set away from the house and surrounded by rambling roses, lavender beds, a beautiful old olive tree and young palms.
