Jumilhac-le-Grand, Dordogne, Nouvelle-Aquitaine
Haut Combiers is a small farm dating from the 1800's with house and barns built in the Perigordian style. The farmhouse retains lots of French character while having all modern facilities and comforts, plus a 10m x 5m x 1.5m heated swimming pool for the sole use of the occupants. Ideal for a couple, larger family, or two families sharing, being spacious but cosy. There are 2 king size beds, 3 singles and 1 double. The two singles in bedroom 2 can be made into a super-king size bed if required, giving the house four double beds plus one single. We also have a travel cot with bedding, which can be put into any of the rooms. The kitchen has an electric hob, oven, dishwasher, microwave, fridge freezer, kettle, toaster, coffee maker etc. The large kitchen table easily seats up to nine people, plus the high chair. The sitting room has 3 c... Read more

Interaction with guests
We will be at the house to meet you when you arrive and to show you around. We live in a converted barn on the farm, although this is across a large yard (with another large barn in between,) and is orientated in the opposite direction to the holiday house. We will clean the pool for you each morning and are available for any questions or advice about the area. We are happy to make reservations at restaurants etc., for visitors who do not speak French. Visitors are more than welcome to help feed or look after our animals, whether just the once or on a regular basis! Our aim is for visitors to have a relaxing, enjoyable holiday in this lovely area and to leave with happy memories of their stay here.

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...More

Additional Rate and Availability Information
The house is available all year round with wood supplied for the wood burner in winter. It is also available at Christmas and will be fully decorated for you. In the low season,for low occupancy rates, please contact the owners. We can sometimes be flexible during the high season, for example, renting the house for the last nine or ten days of the school summer holidays, if that is of help to visitors. Although the house comfortably sleeps a maximum of nine people (plus cot,) the layout also makes it suitable for much lower occupancy and it has regularly been used and enjoyed by just two people.
