Le Pressoir

Le Pressoir is the estate’s former 'wine pressing house' complete with huge cave beneath. Sleeping up to 6 (plus cot), it is the largest of our gites and sympathetically restored to a high standard with exposed tuffeau stonework, stained glass windows and unique glazed tower. With 3 good size bedrooms downstairs (all en-suite, 1 bathroom and 2 shower rooms all with private toilet), it is perfect for comfortably accommodating a family or group of friends. The bedrooms are traditionally furnished with quality bed linen. The upstairs open-plan living area works well for entertaining, with a fully equipped kitchen and large comfy sofas for relaxing in the lounge area. The kitchen leads directly out onto a beautiful raised oak terrace. This child-safe deck offers complete seclusion and shade and has wonderful views over the grounds; perfect for mealtimes and enjoying the glorious sunsets. Alternatively, the ground floor sun terrace is great for barbecuing and overlooks the garden.

About the property

Le Logis du Pressoir

Le Logis du Pressoir is an 18th Century former wine estate, set in the historic hamlet of Brion in 3 acres of beautiful, secluded grounds complete with a small vineyard and fruit orchard. It is the ideal retreat for holidaying as a couple, a family or with friends, offering tranquility and relaxation in a delightful setting. Children adore the freedom to explore and play in our extensive grounds, while parents relax close by. Great care has been taken in the renovation to preserve its unique features and charm whilst providing every comfort and high quality amenities. Each gite is well equipped for your self-catering needs; family and French cookery enthusiasts alike. Guests always comment on our attention to detail and the child friendly nature of the property. Enjoy our heated pool, boules, table tennis, bikes and great walking and cycling straight from the garden. After a day sightseeing, it's the perfect place to take a dip, read, paint, or just unwind with an aperitif.

Additional Information:: We have a selection of reading material in each gite as well as a central collection of books, board games and an extensive DVD collection available to all guests.

Having a young child ourselves, there are plenty of children's games and toys (indoors and outdoors) to make good use of. We also have a dedicated play area with swing and slide, playhouse and cars and tricycles.

There are lakes nearby with sandy beach areas for paddling and using buckets and spades, which make a great alternative to days by the pool.

Owners on site: As owners on site, Mark and Lisa are always available to help with anything you might need to ensure you have a really enjoyable and comfortable holiday.

delightful in early Spring

  • 5 of 5

Le Logis is actually 4 self-catering gites and a chambre d'hôte (B&B), all near the home of hosts Lisa and Mark and strategically situated in the country side in the midst of Loire chateau country. My children and grandchildren stayed in a 2BR unit and I stayed next door in the chambre d'hôte, which has its own bathroom and tres-making facilities.Spotless, spacious, nicely decorated, plenty of room, wi-fi, the gite had complete kitchen and equipment, Lisa and Mark couldn't have been more gracious and friendly. On the spacious and well-planted grounds there is a football pitch, a table tennis table, a swimming pool (not yet uncovered in early April0 and other amenities such as a fully equipped washroom. Nothing so close as to feel crowded or noisy however. An excellent choice especially if you have children.

Lovely place and lovely people

  • 5 of 5

A great place to stay at any time of the year - we were pleasantly surprised when we turned in the drive and discovered the place!

We had the chance to be able to stay in the " le Pressoir", a great place, spacious, spotless and very well equiped!! Our teenage daughter was smitten by her bedroom and our son loved the outdoor facilities, despite the rather cold and unfriendly rainy weather! We stayed for only 3 days, therefore we habe to come back again to discover Brion in sunshine and higher temperatures!!

Thanks for everthing and " Aurevoir " !

Kind regards

Monika and Simon Bruce/France

PS: We can't remember anymore on which site we've discovered this place, but I think it doesn't matter too much...!

Lovely, relaxing family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We’ve just returned from a wonderful week staying in Le Rosiers at Le Logis du Pressior. The Gite was lovely, with everything you need for a self-catering holiday plus the added bonus of a box full of (age appropriate) toys for our 7 and 3 year old children. The grounds are beautiful with lots of space for children to run around and have fun, together with swings/slide, ride along toys and a large log tree house. Our Gite had a lovely private terrace area that overlooked the grounds so we could relax with a drink while keeping an eye on what our children were doing – perfect:-). We were lucky to have very sunny weather for most of the week so enjoyed using and relaxing by the pool nearly every day. However, if you like to explore there is lots to do and see in the area, we especially recommend the Bioparc Zoo in Doue-la-Fontaine as a great day out.

We would highly recommend Le Logis du Pressoir for a lovely relaxing holiday, especially to families with children. In fact we loved it so much we’re planning on booking again for next year:-)?

Owner's Response: Many thanks for this thoughtful and appreciative review. We would also highlight the Bioparc Zoo as a great day out for children and adults alike. It's a wonderful zoo, built into old quarries and specialising in conservation and reproduction projects for endangered animals. We would also recommend Terra Botanica, which is a fantastic, multi-sensory eco-park that appeals to all ages, from toddlers to adults. Thank you again for taking the time to review us, which is very much appreciated.

Wonderful place, wonderful people

  • 5 of 5

We stayed two nights in Lisa and Mark's beautiful and relaxing b&b room. Nothing was too much trouble and the welcome from them, Max and Archie was second to none - as far as supplying us with a much needed picnic on arrival and letting us park our motorbike outside the room. The property is absolutely beautiful and a credit to their hard work and dedication! We will definitely stay here again - it was, without doubt, the nicest place we stayed in France this year by a long way! Jan & Rob.

Wonderful! We stayed in the pressoir gite, it was beautifully renovated with great attention to detail. Clean, comfortable and spacious, we especially loved the private decking under a canopy of trees. The grounds were well kept and suited all ages. Loved the pool. Lisa, Mark and Tom were very warm and welcoming, we really recommend this holiday rental and hope to return to it ourselves!

Le Petit Logis

  • 5 of 5

A lovely well appointed gite in a beautiful setting. The gardens and grounds were beautifully kept and the pool well maintained with comfy loungers. Lots of space and toys/games for children if you had them but enough privacy for us as a couple on our own.

The owners were extremely helpful and friendly and made you feel very welcome and settled, nothing was too much for them.A great place to come back to each day and relax and unwind. Would

definitely recommend staying here.
