Holiday Rental House
Go completely Dordogne in this renovated farmhouse from the 16th century (Le Mas) and charming cottage (Le Mazet) which offers you 5 star discreet luxury and understated style, with 6 bedrooms (each with their own bathroom) and a fantastic summer kitchen which looks out over the private swimming pool, fields and woods. Le Mas & Le Mazet have thick stone walls, wooden beams and huge fireplaces. They have been completely renovated in 2016 by interior designer Joris van Grinsven who respected the history and character of the building but brought it into the 21st century. The Times included us in their 50 Best French Holidays for 2019. The Daily Telegraph has been to stay in order to review us and has awarded us 9/10, the highest mark they have given any hotel or holiday home in the Dordogne...Go completely Dordogne in this renovated farmhouse from the 16th century (Le Mas) and charming cottage (Le Mazet) which offers you 5 star discreet luxury and understated style, with 6 bedrooms (each with their own bathroom) and a fantastic summer kitchen which looks out over the private swimming pool, fields and woods.

The Daily Telegraph has been to stay in order to review us and has awarded us 9/10, the highest mark they have given any hotel or holiday home in the Dordogne. Le Mas The large well-equipped kitchen (55m²) is the centre of the house, great for family meals where 12 people can sit comfortably around the table. The centuries-old larder and stone evier (basin) built into the exposed stone walls just add to the character of the kitchen. It is well-equipped with: a Smeg cooker with 5 gas burners and large electric oven; Samsung dishwasher and washing machine; a Siemens fridge freezer; and a Nespresso machine and Aeroccino milk frother. The terracotta floor tiles lead to the living room (44m²), which like the kitchen has exposed beams, an enormous fireplace with a wood burner (wood provided) and doors leading outside to the pool and summer kitchen. There are 3 large comfortable sofas and plenty of games and books to enjoy. If you want to catch up on the news or watch a film there is a flat screen satellite TV with English channels. There is a portable speaker which you can hook your phone, tablet or laptop to via Bluetooth. Two bedrooms are on the ground floor at opposite ends of the house, each with two single beds and en suite bathrooms with showers. One of these bedrooms is wheelchair accessible, as is the majority of the rest of the ground floor and outside area. The other three bedrooms are accessed via two staircases. The first staircase leads to a double-aspect bedroom and en suite bathroom with shower. The main staircase goes from the kitchen up to the two large gabled master bedrooms (33m² and 23m²). The master bedrooms have wooden floors, beautiful original beams and are light and bright. Windows have views to the fields and woods beyond, being the perfect lookout for deer, birds of prey and wild boars. Both master bedrooms have large en suite bathrooms with showers and free-standing baths. Opposite the kitchen is the covered summer kitchen (65m²). Originally a barn, it still retains the roof but is partly open on three sides, affording you shade and a cool breeze. There is a small kitchen area with sink, fridge and a Weber 3 burner gas barbecue (gas provided). A large dining table, 12 chairs and comfortable seating make it the perfect setting for long lunches, escaping the sun or spending time together late into the night, with atmospheric lighting. Le Mazet Approached from the garden, Le Mazet has steps to the front door, which opens into the living room and open kitchen (36m²) on the upper ground floor. It is a sunny room, with deep-set windows on all four sides, a vaulted ceiling, exposed beams and a large fireplace with a log burner. It has everything you need to relax – a comfortable sofa, dining table and chairs, satellite TV with English channels, DVD player, portable Bluetooth speaker and free WiFi. There is a modern kitchen equipped to ensure an easy and enjoyable stay, with a dishwasher, oven, fridge, microwave, Nespresso coffee machine and Aeroccino milk frother, toaster and kettle. Steps lead down from the living room to the lower ground floor bedroom with an en suite bathroom. There is a kingsize bed, dressing table and chair, wardrobe and chest of drawers. The spacious bathroom has a walk-in shower, sink, toilet, washing machine and heated towel radiator. There are games to play in the garden (table tennis, boules, swingball, badminton rackets and shuttlecocks, children’s croquet) and the pool to enjoy. The 9 x 4 meter pool has a deep and a shallow end, with steps down into the water for easy access (no awkward ladder). It’s positioned to take in the view over the fields and woods beyond, so lie back on the sun loungers and deck chairs and enjoy it! If you are seeking solitude there are several private spots in the garden. The pool is not heated, and for that reason is closed from November to May. We are delighted that Le Mas has been awarded 5 stars by the Dordogne Perigord Tourist Board, on behalf of the Ministry of Tourism, and Le Mazet 4 stars. There are only 15 other hotels and gites in the Dordogne with 5 stars. The classification is based on the facilities, space, state of the accommodation and information we offer guests. More

About the neighbourhood
There is much to explore in the area. Markets selling local produce and antiques. Castles, churches and prehistoric caves, famous wineries, and restaurants serving the region’s specialities (such as truffles, duck and foie gras). There are stunning walks and cycle routes on the doorstep; canoeing, golf, horse riding. We are very happy to advise on what to do and where to go.
Getting around
It is necessary to have your own transport as Le Mas & Le Mazet is in the middle of the beautiful Dordogne countryside and there is virtually no public transport.
