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.
Perfect Villa for Exploring The Dordogne 5/5 Stayed Aug 2019 Anita C.USA Upon arrival we were thrilled to find that the villa and surrounding grounds were exactly as described. 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 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!
