Le Moulin de las Combas | Two unique holiday homes in the Dordogne

    (8 reviews)

    Plenty of space, nature and tranquility
    Restrained architecture and design
    Piet Hein Eek

In the green, wooded northern part of the Dordogne, Dutch designer Piet Hein Eek and his wife have rebuilt an old watermill and adjacent barn in a special way. Just as when making his furniture with recycled material, the designer used local and available materials to construct the houses.

Completely private located in an open space in the forest, on the estate of Chateau Mavaleix, the two holiday homes (both for 8 people) are in and of nature. Although newly built and equipped with every modern comfort, they blend with the landscape and create the illusion that they have been standing here for many years. The rustic atmosphere of the modest interior with visible stone walls, wooden ceilings and concrete floors is given a unique twist by the specially made objects and furniture made from scrap wood from the designer himself.

The houses - which can be rented together or separately - are designed to unwind, ideal for a relaxing family holiday and those seeking tranquility. Start the morning with a cup of coffee on the terrace and then drive to the market for fresh local products with which cooking enthusiasts can enjoy themselves in the spacious kitchen. Children can go on an adventure in the woods or play on the grass. If it gets too hot, you can swim in a landscaped swimming channel or in the river La Valouse that flows past the garden. You can also go swimming in the swimming pool of Chateau Mavaleix, or play tennis on their tennis court (2-30 minutes' walk).

Do you want to leave? Then charming towns, local markets, and hiking trails are close by. And after spending a whole day outside, you will sleep wonderfully with the sound of the water lapping in the background. Exactly, that's living like God in France!

The two holiday homes at Le Moulin de las Combas are located in the Dordogne, on the green hills of the Périgord Vert near the Château de Mavaleix estate. You will be personally welcomed by Mario who lives in the area. He can give you lots of tips on what to do in the area.

Below some ideas:

Because you are staying in one of the holiday homes on the estate of Chateau Mavaleix, you can also swim in the swimming pool of the castle (in summer) or play tennis on their tennis court. Kees and Letty Kroon are the nice Dutch owners of the castle. The castle is a 10-minute walk from the houses. On Friday and Saturday you can also eat in the castle's restaurant.


The closest airports are in Limoges (45 min), Bergerac (1h30) and Bordeaux (2h15).

A relaxing place in nature

    Plenty of space, nature and tranquility Restrained architecture and design Piet Hein Eek

This special hideaway is located in an open space in the forests of the northern Dordogne. Built in an inconspicuous architecture, the two holiday homes are fully integrated with nature thanks to the use of natural materials and large windows that give the feeling that inside and outside are one.

Both houses - Le Moulin and Le Four - can accommodate 8 people (in total 16 people); ideal for a holiday with two families, but they can also be rented separately.
