Aristo’s Playground

Aristo’s Playground, Plum Guide home in France

Aristo’s Playground, Plum Guide home in France

Click to book Aristo’s Playground now: from £812 per night It’s rare that you get the chance to stay in a home that’s almost half a millenia old, and we think it would be the height of foolishness to turn down the opportunity when it arises. This home has been standing since 1571, and has been lovingly restored by the current owners in order to provide the same level of luxury to guests today as it did to the first inhabitants. Not that you have to stand on ceremony here; everything is geared towards your pleasure, with an emphasis on games and outdoor pursuits. Guests can fish on the private lake, or splash about in the swimming pool, bounce on the trampoline, or start a pétanque tournament; on the rare rainy day that the south of Burgundy experiences, it’s no hardship to retreat to the indoor games room for billiards, poker, or even a classic game of Monopoly. Sleeps up to 20 | 10 Bedrooms | 10 Bathrooms

The Perfect Pitch

The Perfect Pitch, Plum Guide home in France

Click to book The Perfect Pitch now: from £509 per night The Perfect Pitch was voted one of the nicest family-friendly villas in Europe, and it's easy to see why. With a dedicated playground what will help the kids relax and socialise so that you can do the same, this home has something for every family member to enjoy —there's even a nursery for those with toddlers and plenty of games that the whole family can take part in. As every bedrooms has its own ensuite, there's lots of privacy and autonomy within the house itself, but you can always go for a walk around the village to reflect and recharge your batteries. Spend your days lounging by the pool with a good book or practise your backstroke, then hit the steam room to break a proper sweat. The dining room is beautifully furnished, but when it's warm enough, we recommend that you take all of your meals alfresco. Watch the sunset over a nice drink and then retreat inside for a movie night and a well-deserved glass of local wine after putting the kids to sleep. Sleeps up to 12 | 6 Bedrooms | 8 Bathrooms

Le Parc aux Cerfs

Le Parc aux Cerfs, Plum Guide home in France

Click to book Le Parc aux Cerfs now: from £780 per night This home has everything you could ask for from a classic French chateau - grand dining room, library, wood panelled palatial living room - with an artistic twist. Murals painted on the walls add a fun and eclectic edge - we especially loved the theatrical curtains framing the bath and the ballroom dancing frieze. The grounds are equally as lavish, with 15 acres of private deer field parkland, a swimming pool and cottages dotted around the grounds. Nearby Beaune isn't short of activities to choose from, with helicopter rides, golf and hot air ballooning, to name but a few, plus a rich cultural and historical heritage to discover and enjoy. Sleeps up to 20 | 12 Bedrooms | 8 Bathrooms
