La Grande Maison
La Grande Maison has been designed to suit wheelchair users but retain the charm and character of these wonderful rural buildings. Level access has been integrated seamlessly into the design.There are no steps throughout the ground floor level of the house or the terrace, garden and parking areas. Most doors are 90cms (32.5”) or larger which enable wheelchair users to access all areas of the house with the exception of the first floor. We are planning to install a lift to give full access to the first floor of the house – but this will not be installed in the near future. The house is extremely spacious with large rooms and big turning circles
The huge ground floor bathroom has a bath as well as a large wheel-in shower. Two types of shower chair (including a self-propelling chair) are available. There is sufficient space to allow lateral transfer to the toilet (which has pull-down handrails on both sides) from either side. The bathroom washbasin has sufficient clearance for wheelchair users. There is sufficient clearance under the beds to allow the use of a hoist (a Porta 150 electric hoist is available).
The ground floor kitchen is designed for ease of access and has freestanding kitchen furniture. The sink has clearance for wheelchair users.
There is lots of information about local access (towns and villages, restaurants, toilets and other facilities) in the Vistors Books - accumulated at first hand by the hundreds of disabled people who have stayed at Gresignac.
