Le Mas is a 16th-century old farmhouse that has been converted into a very luxurious holiday villa for 10 people in the Dordogne. The villa has been completely renovated, retaining the character and history of the building and where luxury and comfort come together to perfection.
Kitchen and sitting room
The fully equipped kitchen (55 m2) is literally the center of the house. Consisting of a Smeg 5-burner stove with a large-sized electric oven; a Samsung washing machine; Siemens dishwasher and fridge / freezer; a Nespresso machine with Aeroccino milk frother and a Siemens Porsche Design filter coffee maker.
The terracotta tiles continue to the sitting room (44m2), which, just like the kitchen, has a large fireplace with wood burning stove (wood is provided) and doors that lead to the swimming pool and summer kitchen. There are 3 comfortable sofas and many books, DVDs and games to enjoy. The flat screen TV has English channels. There is a wireless speaker that can be connected via Bluetooth to a telephone, tablet or laptop.
There are 5 bedrooms, each with its own bathroom
Bedroom 1 is on the ground floor and has 2 single beds and a bathroom with shower
Bedroom 2 is also located on the ground floor and has 2 single beds and a bathroom with shower
One of these rooms is wheelchair accessible, as is the majority of the ground floor and the outside area. A third bed can be placed in the other, so that an extra person can sleep here.
The remaining three bedrooms are on the first floor and are served by two staircases. Bedroom 3 is at the top of the stairs to the right of the kitchen. This room has a 180 x 200 cm bed and a shower. Bedrooms 4 and 5 are accessible via the staircase that leads from the kitchen to the floor.
These bright bedrooms are both spacious with a double bed of 180 x 200 cm, ample cupboard space, wooden floors and beautiful original beams. The windows overlook the fields and the forests behind them. It is also the ideal lookout point to spot deer, birds of prey and wild boar. The bathrooms in the main bedrooms have both a bathtub and a shower. Each bathroom has Noir toiletries from The White Company, a hairdryer, and each bedroom has a summer fan.

Opposite the kitchen is the summer kitchen (65m²) that is completely covered. The ideal place where you will spend many hours. This former barn has retained its original roof, but the openings on three sides offer you shade and a cooling breeze. There is a small kitchen with sink, fridge and a Weber gas barbecue with 3 burners (gas bottles are provided). A large dining table with 12 comfortable chairs make it the perfect place for long lunches, finding a cool spot in the heat of the day, copious dinners and long, balmy evenings.
The swimming pool is open from April to October and is 10 x 5 meters in size, heated, with salt water and with an electrical cover. A saltwater swimming pool is without the addition of chlorine, resulting in softer water and less risk of allergies and eye and skin irritations. A saltwater swimming pool only has about 10% of the salt content of the ocean. The swimming pool is situated in such a way that you can take maximum advantage of the miles distant view of the fields and forests behind it. If you want to quietly read a book, there are several secluded spots in the garden where you can isolate yourself. In the garden you can play various games such as table tennis, football, boules, badminton rackets and shuttles, a children's croquette.
