“Lovely farmhouse set in the beautiful countryside”
Reviewed February 2, 2018 for a stay in November 2017

We arrived to a very friendly and warm welcome from our hosts Dawn and Andrew and much appreciated fresh supplies in the kitchen. As it was our first visit to the Dordogne they were very helpful regarding the local amenities and places of interest in the area. The property is incredibly quiet and set in beautiful countryside with the horses and cattle grazing the the paddocks and we struck up quite a friendship with their lovely borarder collie Tache. The gite itself was spotlessly clean and had a very well equipped kitchen. It was tastefully decorated with comfortable furniture and very comfortable beds. We were always lovely and warm and had the added bonus of a very efficient wood burner which made the gite very cosy during the cool autumn nights.
We look forward to another visit and would definitely recommend it to others.

“Loved this place and Andrew and Dawn were delightful and accommodating.”
Reviewed August 3, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

We liked the quiet location and all the amenities of this Haut Combiers ranch house. 5 minutes to croissants and grocery store. The view, the solitude, and the ability to have guests were highlights. Our only disappointment was the very slow wifi service and that was probably just as well.

This property is ideally suited for a group/family. We would do it again without hesitation.

“An ideal wonderful family holiday”
Reviewed September 11, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Dawn and Andrew are such kind and thoughtful hosts and the house is beautifully equipped and the super welcome pack was much appreciated including the wine after such a long drive. The children were rarely out of the fabulous pool and loved all the animals, Fleur the collie, the Ponies, Sammy and Lippsy, rabbits, pigs, cats and hens. The layout of the house also lent itself to the two of us after the family left. A beautiful area with lots of interesting places to visit. Very relaxing!

“Delightful House with warm welcoming owners”
Reviewed September 7, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We were a family of 4 adults and 3 children aged 3,7 and 8 . Firstly the photos on the website do not do the property justice ,it is really beautiful and welcoming , a real home. The kitchen is extremely well kitted out with everything you could possibly need. Bedrooms were extremely comfortable with lots of wardrobe space.We lived outside enjoying the wonderful pool ,which was cleaned every morning by Andrew.
The children loved all the animals and enjoyed helping Dawn feed the chickens , pigs , rabbits and ponies, however Fleur the dog won everyones hearts.
All in all it would be hard to find a more perfect holiday home.

“Absolutely fantastic”
Reviewed August 30, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

A truly lovely place to stay. Probably the best place we have stayed in so far. The house was very well equipped and our hosts were amazing. The pool was warm, clean and so inviting. Had great fun playing with the dogs and feeding the friendly pigs. I highly recommend

“Everything was fantastic”
Reviewed August 7, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We absolutely loved everything about this holiday house. The house was perfect, well equipped, clean wonderful beds, pillows, duvets, sheets and towels. Pool towels included. Kitchen well equipped. Dish washer was one of the quietest we have ever heard. A Dyson cordless vacuum, and an excellent washing machine. Everything was of the highest quality. Dawn and Andrew were marvellous there if you needed them. Andrew cleaned the pool every morning. We fell in love with their three dogs - Fleur, Katy and Millie. We couldn't have asked for more.

“Fantastic holiday home in a perfect peaceful location.”
Reviewed August 26, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Just returned from a fantastic holiday at Haut Combiers. We were 2 families with 3 children aged 2,6 and 7. The house is immaculate and finished to a very high standard. The pool and garden are superb, and secure, which was brilliant for our children.

We had fantastic weather but the pool temperature is maintained between 27 and 30 degrees, which makes it very comfortable no matter what the weather is doing.

There are no other properties (apart from the owner's) in close proximity and the views are stunning. During the evenings it is noticeable that you cannot see artificial lights anywhere in the distance, just the stars and moon in a very clear sky. There is no road noise, it is very peaceful and tranquil.

Dawn and Andrew (the owners) are amazing, they are there if you need them and will provide any help if required, but equally would not interfere with your holiday if you wanted complete isolation.

We thoroughly enjoyed their company. They were great with the children allowing them to feed the animals and help with grooming the horses. They have 3 dogs, but 'Fleur' was a particular favourite with the children, she is so friendly and sat every morning waiting for them to wake up so they could play with her. The children were very sad to leave her.

A truly fantastic holiday home, which we have already booked for next year.
