This place is brilliant. It's a very peaceful location (no noise at all!), but only a little drive from the airport so quick to get to from the UK. It's close to the Dordogne river with kayaking etc which the kids loved. We had four children aged 7-11 and they all loved it, esp. the swimming pool and grounds. The house is stunning - spacious & well designed in two wings so great for two families. We wanted a chilled, relaxing holiday with the kids entertained, fitted the bill perfectly. Would definitely go again.
We absolutely adore staying at Combalou and have now rented it for three consecutive years.
We go with another family and it works perfectly. The stunning house, which has been beautifully and sympathetically decorated is tucked away in beautiful grounds which include a small lake where you can feed the 'rescue' ducks that the owners saved from the market. The tranquility of the place restores peace and calm to our worlds, we swim endlessly in the very large pool, play badminton, boule, visit the wonderful Perigeux for excellent shopping, superb restaurants and street entertainment. We normally do at least two canoe trips, visit their equivalent of Go Ape and always spend a couple of days by the nearby lake which is absolutely charming and has a wonderful restaurant where we always end up, sandy, sun kissed and very happy. I truly can't recommend this holiday enough. Our children range between 15 and 7 and it suits them all. Every year we say we'll do more next year because we know we've barely touched the sides but there never seems to be the time! Book now to avoid disappointment.
We were lucky enough to stay at Le Combalou in the summer of 2011 for a few weeks, and we had the most wonderful time there. The house is stunning and beautifully furnished and very well equipped for all our needs. The pool is fabulous with amazing views over the surrounding countryside, and is not overlooked by anyone, or any other houses. It was easy to reach the lovely town of Perigueux, where they have fantastic shops and food markets. There are also lots of lovely walks to take directly from the house, and it is magical to walk down the hill to the lake and have a wander in the late afternoon sun. If you are looking for a peaceful break, in a stunning location, in great style and comfort, then look no further.
