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.

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, ...Haut Combiers is a small farm dating from the 1800's with house and barns built in the Perigordian style.

The sitting room has 3 comfortable sofas and a wood burner, 40” flat screen TV with English free-sat, dvd player, games, books, toys, dvd's and wifi. The kitchen and living areas both have French doors leading onto the terrace, with table, 9 chairs and gas barbecue. The 10m x 5m x 1.5m heated swimming pool is close to the house and set in the large garden with lawns and mature trees. A welcome pack of essentials is provided on arrival. Home grown vegetables may be available, plus eggs from our chickens. The house has enclosed garden areas with seating to both sides. The occupants have sole use of the heated pool, which is alarmed and will be cleaned daily for you. There are sunbeds around the pool for all occupants, parasols and a solar heated shower. The large garden has lawns, mature trees and a shaded parking area, with a pathway leading up to the house. A fence is around the terrace and a smaller part of the lawn, with wide gates at the bottom of the steps leading up to the pool. For younger children, this restricts access to the pool area and larger part of the garden. A paddling pool can be provided within this fenced off area. The gates at the bottom of the steps can be swung back completely, giving full access to the pool and larger garden area with a tree house and slide, table tennis table, boules pitch, tree house and picnic bench. Beyond the main garden is an orchard with a swing set.We keep several acres free of animals for guests to walk in.
Children (and adults,) are welcome to help feed the animals and groom the ponies. More

The nearest shops are 7 km away at Jumilhac-le-Grand, which also has a beautiful square with bars and restaurants overlooking a stunning chateau. The nearest town with supermarkets etc., is Thiviers, which is a ten minute drive. St Yriex la Perche, which has a medieval centre and is slightly larger, is approximately fifteen to twenty minutes in the other direction. The surrounding area consists of beautiful countryside, undulating and wooded with meandering rivers. It is a beautiful area to cycle in or visit nearby villages and markets. There are lots of places to see and various activities within an easy drive; lakes with water sports, canoeing on rivers, caves, chateaux, adventure parks and picturesque towns and villages.
