Wood Burning Fireplace
The living room's limestone fireplace is wood-burning and provides more than enough heat for the downstairs living area during cooler months. It was built onsite and based on scale drawings of a mantle/fireplace found in a chateau in Provence, France, as Dr. Planz (the original owner/builder) was a stickler for authenticity and details. A true architectural gem in the heart of the home, you'll find yourself gathered around it all year long, though we do ask our guests not build fires during the summer months as we often have a bird family living in the chimney then. Bundles of wood are provided during the winter months for your enjoyment and comfort.
Added when the Flowers purchased the home in 2013, the Spa Tub is a luxurious sanctuary for all of our guests. Temperatures can go from 65 to 104 degrees Fahrenheit, making your summer dip cool and winter soak warm and relaxing. While in the tub, open the Blue Door in front of you for a breathtaking view straight down to the ocean. Or, look above you to the palms and the sun dial and transport yourself back in time.
Fully Equipped Kitchen
Find anything and everything you could possibly need for a gourmet meal in our French-inspired kitchen. You'll fall in love with the white marble countertops and charming farmhouse sink. Double ovens, stainless steel dishwasher, gas stovetop with retractable hood, and large stainless steel refrigerator & freezer with built-in automatic ice maker make cooking for the entire family a breeze. Need glassware, plates, and flatware for unexpected extra guests? No worries, Chez Fleur has more than enough. Coffee grinder, single cup Keurig, and multi-cup coffee maker are all provided and are sure to impress even the most discerning brew master.
Weber Gas Grill
Dinner al fresco this evening? Yes please! Step just outside the fully-equipped kitchen to embrace your inner grill-master with our Weber Gas Grill. The Eastern Courtyard also boasts a 17th century limestone lion head fountain imported from a chateau in Southern France with growing greenery along its walls, as well as comfortable teak adirondack chairs for your morning cup of coffee or casual dining under the stars. The calming sound of the running water will lull you into tranquility.
HIGH EFFICIENcY WASHER & DRYER
For your convenience during your stay, our laundry room includes a high efficiency washer and dryer, as well as a separate soaking sink. The laundry room door is how you'll enter and exit to go the beach with hooks for towels right inside the door and an outdoor shower and hose sprayer just outside the door in the Western Courtyard with the Spa Tub. In the laundry room, you'll also find our stand-alone ice maker. Guest Buddy C raved, "The ice machine here kept up with our demand, and we never had to purchase a single bag of ice our entire stay.”
Flat, Private BOARDWALK
Chez Fleur is situated directly at the mouth of Eastern Lake, where the lake meets the Gulf of Mexico - a rare natural phenomena that only occurs in a few locations around the world. Our flat, private boardwalk will take you right to that point, where the two bodies of water meet. Young children can enjoy wading and splashing in the shallow waters of the lake while older children and adults can take in the sun and surf of the ocean, within just a few yards of one another. Older guests and those needing extra care appreciate the flat boardwalk with no stairs to climb going to and from the beach. Our private boardwalk ensures you aren't fighting crowds to find that perfect spot in the sand. And, when you're ready to come in for the day, your sandals are sure to be right where you left them.
