About this property

Spacious 19th Century Farmhouse With Heated Pool. This cottage/gite is in a rural setting.

La Colombiere is a spacious traditional stone farmhouse equipped to a high standard throughout.

The outside areas include parkland, woodland and our large rear gardens which can be used for a wide range of activities including football, touch rugby, badminton, volleyball or even a game of 20/20. For the more discerning, a gentle game of croquet or petanque provide for some “quiet competition” in the evening sun, before retiring to either the garden or pool terraces for some “al fresco” dining.

And for those odd days when the sun doesn’t shine or you need a break from it, we have a 16 seat indoor cinema and games room. And for those that must, wi-fi is available throughout.

So whether you need to relax and recharge, get active, celebrate in style with friends and family, crave culture and history or simply want to keep the kids entertained, this Dordogne accommodation makes a great choice for your holiday.
