Beautiful country house in the Dordogne
Everything about this property is first class and first rate. The house is beautifully designed and exquisitely furnished. It has everything you could possibly need, from a large pool surrounded by stylish lounge chairs, to a separate game room complete with ping pong table, air-conditioning in every bedroom (which turned out to be a welcome and necessary perk), beautiful grounds with unbroken vistas, every electronic device you can imagine, wi-if that actually works with no delays and much, much more. A perfect home for a family vacation. We had four adults and two children and there was room to spare. Inside and out, the house is even better than the listed pictures. Though it feels like you are in the middle of the peaceful countryside (a plus for us), you are only a 15-minute drive from Sarlat and the nearest supermarkets and easy driving distance to the special sights of the Dordogne. Farrah is a wonderful host who provides you with lots of helpful tips and advice and Rosemary, the property manager, was always available the few times we needed her. A wonderful place for a family vacation in the beautiful Dordogne.
Combe-Claire: Something for Everyone
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!
Fantastic quality house. Everything was perfect .
Wonderful family holiday in luxury, quiet location
The property is in a really lovely peaceful location ideal for a family get together! There is everything you need in the house and the pool is an extra bonus. Would definitely recommend it.
The owner could not have been more helpful and Rosemary the local contact was lovely and so helpful with recommendations etc
Wonderful house and garden 5 *
As two families of 5 we visited Combe-Claire in the summer months. The house is spacious and very comfortable.We were struck by the beautiful, tasteful decor as well as the quality of all equipment/ furnishings etc. The setting was fabulous and the garden and pool area wonderful for all ages. We rarely left the property all week as we were so fortunate with warm sunny weather. However, unlike many properties in France, it would have been lovely to also stay over during cooler temperatures as the interior of the house was so beautiful. We had a wonderful holiday and would thoroughly recommend to all groups. Farah was a fabulous host with prompt and helpful communication. We would love to return.
Thank you for taking the time to write this review. We were delighted to welcome you all, and are very pleased to hear that you had a great time. We find the reviews by our guests very helpful, and we make every effort to make sure that the guests are having a comfortable and relaxing time while staying at Comeback-Claire.
Spring and Autumn are great time to visit the Dordogne, the weather is mellow and pleasant and the scenery beautiful. This October has been glorious, the temperature in 20s every day, the trees laden with fruits, and the market buzzing with people! We kept the pool open until the last week of October.
Accommodation was very clean and as described. Everything you could possibly want is available.Local Manager very helpful and nothing too much trouble.
The kitchen is well equipped even down to the coffee machine.
Wonderful location with lovely views over the rolling countryside.
Thank you for your review. We would like our guests to feel most comfortable at Combe-Claire, and consider it a home from home. The house is very spacious and full of light, and it enjoys great views. It is very peaceful, perfect for true relaxation and unwinding.
The house is on one of three hilltop villages within sight (and a short drive) of each other. The beautiful village of Tamnies captivates the visitor with deer, flower displays and an excellent restaurant. Its illuminated church tower is a landmark at night. Marquay, with fresh bread daily, offers several excellent restaurants. The house, Combe-Claire, is perched atop Escamps, a hamlet of just a few houses, free from intrusion and visitor activity. An enjoyable 15 minute drive to the south lies the medieval town of Sarlat; a similar distance to the west is Les Eyzies, the ‘capital of prehistory’, while to the north are the celebrated caves of Lascaux, where images of bison and deer, perhaps ancestors of the herd that still haunt the nearby fields, are to be seen.
Other Activities: canoeing, hot air ballooning, adventure parks, many historic sites
