Le Pressoir is located on the edge of a small stream and is surrounded by lush greenery. Lost in the middle of a vast and beautiful valley, this old mill is the ideal place to retreat from the stress of modern life. This converted 14th-century water mill is located on the grounds of Chateau de la Bourlie and is surrounded by 1500 hectares of gardens, rolling meadows and beautiful forests. You can stay here with 12 people + 2 small children. Le Pressoir is very family friendly with lots of space inside and out. The rooms are heated in the summer by the sun and in the winter by floor heating and fireplaces.
Le Pressoir was completely restored in 2007 and has a contemporary, sober and very tasteful interior within the 14th-century walls. Old wooden beams, beautiful carpets on the concrete floors and large windows that let in sunlight and fresh air. Art and nature go hand in hand with a lively use of color, texture and modern & antique furniture. You will enjoy the privacy and the relaxing setting, surrounded by fields, flowers and plants.
Behind the two-bedroom cottage (30m from the main house) lies the beautifully designed elongated swimming pool with the sun loungers, surrounded by grass.
Every day the chateau team serves an organic French breakfast with bread, pastries, local yoghurt and seasonal fruit, jam, honey and butter, along with fresh milk and fruit juice.
All accommodations in our unique collection meet our high standards in quality, comfort, style and setting. We visit every place, meet the owners and explore the area, so we are sure that you will have a great holiday here!
