Maison Rose is a beautiful 200 year old home with excellent outdoor living space and an outdoor kitchen. The house was large enough to accommodate two families with active children, yet it was full of cozy little places to curl up with a book. We enjoyed our time there very much and were very impressed with the property owner. He was very involved and helpful during our stay.
I definitely loved the outdoor kitchen and eating area near the pool! The children loved the pool, piano, pool table, and hiding spots. We adults found ourselves living outdoors with the fully equipped poolside kitchen. Everything about the furnishings were thoughtful: on the pool deck there were plenty of chaise lounges for the sun worshipper as well as the shade lovers. One of our children made it her goal to sit in every chair in the house before the week was over; I think her count was 117 chairs!
Many of the bathrooms only had a bidet and not a toilet. Also, there were not enough towels.
We loved Gourdon! Definitely worth a trip for the views alone!
