Description

This country house/villa in the heart of the Dordogne, near Sarlat, is spacious, modern and equipped to a very high standard. Both house and heated swimming pool enjoy a southerly aspect with a panoramic view of the valley. The large kitchen is well equipped to a very high standard. All five bedrooms have private en suites. The ground floor has the benefit of under floor heating; the large stone fireplace adds a focus of warmth in the cooler months. The elegant separate dining room, too, looks out onto the unspoiled countryside. The private and heated pool can be enjoyed in all seasons, with a BBQ for variety. . 55 " ( 55 inch ) Smart TV with English and French channels. If you have Netflix account or Amazon Prime you can watch a rang of movies! DVD and CD player are provided. High speed internet access are provided. There is a game room with table tennis. The nearby villages of Marquay and Tamnies offer restaurants and shops. The house, which offers seclusion and tranquillity, is perfectly located for visiting all the attractions that the Dordogne region has to offer for a luxury, extra special, romantic or family holiday.

Combe-Claire: Combe-Claire is a traditionally stone-built, country house/villa that offers all the modern conveniences to make your holiday comfortable and enjoyable. In spring the fruit trees blossom on the slopes surrounding the house. The deer pass by in the valley and wild boar occasionally forage in the local woods. In autumn the early morning mist gives way to warm sunshine that ripens the figs and walnuts. In the immediate surroundings it is easy to find an astonishing variety of wild mushrooms. Here is truly a place to relax, contemplate and unwind, yet it is superbly located so that all the region’s attractions can be visited with ease.

The Dordogne: The Dordogne or Périgord region is one of the most beautiful parts of France, well known to the French for its food and wine. There is a saying, “En Périgord, on mange bien, on boit bien”. Périgord is the home of the truffle and foie gras. Numerous local restaurants, with all regional delights, tempt the casual visitor. As a world centre of prehistory, the Dordogne offers countless caves for exploration. The world-renowned Lascaux and Font de Gaume, with their cave paintings and artefact's, are both close by. The national museum of prehistory, only 15 minutes away in Les Eyzies, provides a good starting point. Entrance is free on the first Sunday of every month. Within easy range, too, are chateaux and bastides – medieval fortified towns – which mark turning points of history, from Viking and English domination, to the resistance of the French Protestants. Across this region Simon de Montfort drove the Cathar heretics virtually to extinction at the foot of the Pyrenees.

Sarlat: Sarlat is one of the most fascinating and beautifully restored towns not only in the Dordogne, but in France. The atmosphere and appearance are of another age, with narrow, steep, beautiful alleys flanked by medieval and renaissance houses in honey-coloured stone. It has more historic listed buildings than any other place of its size in France and is the only town to be given three stars by the Michelin guide solely for the quality and character of its old town. One of the largest weekly markets in France takes over most of the town every Saturday. There is also a Food Market in Sarlat every Wednesday. Throughout the summer there are musical festivals and art exhibitions in Sarlat and nearby towns. In the nocturnal markets there are bargains to be sought among the local crafts, food produce and Bergerac wines by the light of gas-illuminated street lamps. Sarlat is only 15-20 minutes drive away from Combe-Claire. A visit to Tourist Information Office in Sarlat is highly recommended.

A real home from home with a luxury feel

By W Irons on 10-Aug-2019

We booked Combe-Claire as a birthday trip the Dordogne. We were travelling as 2 sets of families with children 8-12 and the house appeared to offer ample space and comfort with a pool larger than most. The photos and the reviews made this the ideal choice. We were not disappointed! The house was immaculate and extremely well appointed. The pool was lovely, with loungers and pool towels provided. The photos show the poolside to be grassed, but it was paved which was a bonus. The garden was huge, with fruit trees and raspberries aplenty! Right from the initial booking, the owner, Farah kept in touch. She gave us lots of information about the house and surrounding areas of interest. As we were driving from the UK, Farah gave us directions to Combe-Claire, which was really helpful. On arrival, we met Rosemary, the property manager. She was friendly, helpful and available if needed. We had midweek cleaner, gardener and pool maintenance. All of whom were polite and unobtrusive. The cleaning staff also came on the Saturday for changeover clean – that was an opportunity for us to visit Sarlat market. Note, leave early so you can find parking, unless you have an electric car which you can charge whilst shopping. (There are plenty of charging points where you can also park conveniently!) Combe-Claire is in a small hamlet of seven houses. The area of Tamnies, Marquay, Le Petit Salignac, and other little villages is very peaceful, yet only 15-20 minutes from everywhere. We visited many of the places that Farah recommended. La Borderie restaurant in Tamnies village is worth a visit although not for fussy vegetarians & fussy children. The location is a perfect base to explore & experience the Dordogne with plenty to do & see for both children & adults. The house itself has everything you could need – a real home from home with a luxury feel. Would we return? Absolutely.

A well equipped kitchen, inviting living room, air conditioned large bedrooms (all with en-suite bathrooms), heated private pool, and gorgeous grounds made for a wonderful week in The Dordogne. We enjoyed the tastefully decorated house which had comfortable seating areas inside and out. Farah, the owner and her property manager provided excellent detailed information about the property’s many fine attributes. All enjoyed our time together as we explored various towns and restaurants recommended by Farah. We looked forward to returning each night to our grand accommodations. Look no further for the perfect villa awaits you here. Published 20 Oct 2019

Combe-Claire: Something for Everyone

By M Herbert on 13-Aug-2019

Combe-Claire: Something for Everyone I have just returned from the most enjoyable family holiday ever. In all we were 5 adults and 5 children ranging from the ages of 2 to 75 and there was definitely something for all of us at Combe-Claire. The grown ups had the pleasure of watching the little ones enjoying the freedom of playing safely in the garden and pool area while we relaxed in this beautifully furnished, spacious and well equipped house. From the moment I made the booking Farah, the owner, was extremely helpful and so keen to make sure all would be as we wanted. On arrival Rosemary, the housekeeper, took over making sure we were comfortable and 'at home'. The information she passed on was very useful for the days when we were able to drag the children and certain grown ups away from the pool in order to find fun things to do elsewhere. There were no shortages of these and all within 15 to 30 minutes by car. Just one disappointment - one week wasn't long enough to fit in all there was on offer and on arrival back in the UK one of my family immediately booked a two week stay in Combe-Claire for next year. What more can I say? That in itself says it all!
