About Colin McBride
Combe Nègre is a family second home which has been restored with the intent of being a future retirement base. The property is jointly owned by Curt Waibel, Colin McBride, Niall and Sharon Deacon. Curt and Colin are based in London, whilst Niall and Sharon live and work in Kenya. This is a wonderful property being very private with far reaching views and is the perfect place to rest and recharge and we look forward to spending more time here when we retire.
Colin McBride purchased this Farmhouse in 2006
Why Colin McBride chose Saint-Marcel-Campes
Having spent five years searching for a second home in the Vaucluse, Languedoc and rest of France this was the first property that had a tick in all prerequisite boxes. Our requirements were that we needed privacy, great views, a good climate, and a substantial property we could refurbish to suit our tastes and needs.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
The house is extremely private and comfortable with extensive grounds, a beautiful large pool with amazing views which is great for getting back in tune with mother nature. It is also very practical in its layout and has been tastefully restored and furnished. The house sleeps ten people comfortably with all the amenities and appliances that are needed to make for a relaxing holiday. The size of the property means that you can always find a place to relax even when the house is full. The house is also set within a great area with lots of historic sites, vineyards, and markets to visit. It is also excellent for walking, kayaking and cycling tours. Above all else we love choosing fresh produce to cook from the daily markets all close by and then deciding where we will dine in the property or on one of the various terraces in order to take in the spectacular sunsets that can be viewed from the house over five valleys.

We had a fabulous 2 weeks staying at Combe Negre. The property is gorgeous and the views are spectacular. Nothing nicer than sipping a glass of vin by the pool house watching the sun set after a day of exploring beautiful village after beautiful village. And Cordes Sur Ciel is a true treasure and so close. Curtis was so helpful and only a text or call away if needed anything.
The Grand Salle with the table tennis and gym equipment was a real family pleaser and provided hours of fun on those days when we wanted to stay planted at the house. The only thing I would say is that the photos don't do it justice it is even more beautiful in real life. But not sure how you would capture the view in a photo as you feel like you are always looking at a painting when you look down the valley from the pool. Highly recommend.
very nice place
Thank you for the review and we are pleased that you enjoyed your holiday at Combe Negre.
The best place for a family holiday. Thank you!
Fabulous comfortable and serene holiday home
This fabulous French farmhouse is idyllic for a family holiday. We had a wonderful 2 weeks enjoying the house, the views, the pool, the serenity of it all. We also explored the many nearby medieval villages, especially the stunning Cordes-sur-Ciel. Or try a day trip to Carcassone. The property was clean, extremely well-maintained and the perfect location. The owner and local gardien were extremely helpful and thoughtful. I highly recommend this property.
Magnifique maison de vacances
Nous avons séjourné deux semaine dans cette maison et nous avons été très satisfaits dans tous les domaines.
Le site est tranquille, reposant, champêtre et la vue sur les champs et au loin sur la vallée est somptueuse. L'exposition plein ouest nous a permis d'assister à des couchers de soleil extraordinaires.
La maison est vaste, toute en longueur et permet de disposer d'espaces indépendants. Une grande cuisine, une salle de séjour puis un grand salon avec un piano ont permis à nos invités et à nous même de se répartir sans jamais se gêner en fonction des activités de chacun tout au long de la journée.
Les 5 chambres avec leurs salles de bain en enfilade conviennent à un groupe familial car il n'y a pas d'accès indépendant, sauf dans la grande chambre qui est très agréable.
L'immense salle de jeu ouverte sur le jardin a eu beaucoup de succès auprès des petits et des grands.
La piscine implantée devant la maison et donnant sur la campagne a eu également beaucoup de succès.
On se sent à l'aise dans cette maison avec des terrasses derrière et devant la maison où l'on peut dîner nombreux.
Tous les éléments de confort étaient là, toujours de très bonne qualité et très généreusement mis à notre disposition par les propriétaires.
Nous sommes enchantés de ce séjour et recommandons cette maison à tous ceux qui aiment la campagne, le calme et le confort.
Merci à Curtis qui nous a accueillis si chaleureusement.
