The house

  • Quiet, rural area with some agricultural activity

Go completely Dordogne in this renovated farmhouse from the 16th century which offers you 5 star discreet luxury and understated style, with 5 bedrooms (each with their own bathroom) and a fantastic summer kitchen which looks out over the private swimming pool, fields and woods.

Le Mas has thick stone walls, wooden beams and huge fireplaces. It has been completely renovated in 2016 by interior designer Joris van Grinsven who respected the history and character of the building but brought it into the 21st century offering comfort, stylish understatement and discreet luxury.

The large well-equipped kitchen (55m²) is the centre of the house, great for family meals where 12 people can sit comfortably around the table. The centuries-old larder and stone evier (basin) built into the exposed stone walls just add to the character of the kitchen. It is well-equipped with: a Smeg cooker with 5 gas burners and large electric oven; Samsung dishwasher and washing machine; a Siemens fridge freezer; and a Nespresso machine and Aeroccino milk frother.

The terracotta floor tiles lead to the living room (44m²), which like the kitchen has exposed beams, an enormous fireplace with a wood burner (wood provided) and doors leading outside to the pool and summer kitchen. There are 3 large comfortable sofas and plenty of games and books to enjoy.

If you want to catch up on the news or watch a film there is a flat screen satellite TV with English channels. There is a portable speaker which you can hook your phone, tablet or laptop to via Bluetooth.

Two bedrooms are on the ground floor at opposite ends of the house, each with two single beds and en suite bathrooms with showers. One of these bedrooms is wheelchair accessible, as is the majority of the rest of the ground floor and outside area. The other three bedrooms are accessed via two staircases. The first staircase leads to a double-aspect bedroom and en suite bathroom with shower. The main staircase goes from the kitchen up to the two large gabled master bedrooms (33m² and 23m²).

The master bedrooms have wooden floors, beautiful original beams and are light and bright. Windows have views to the fields and woods beyond, being the perfect lookout for deer, birds of prey and wild boars. Both master bedrooms have large en suite bathrooms with showers and free-standing baths.

Opposite the kitchen is the covered summer kitchen (65m²). Originally a barn, it still retains the roof but is partly open on three sides, affording you shade and a cool breeze. There is a small kitchen area with sink, fridge and a Weber 3 burner gas barbecue (gas provided). A large dining table, 12 chairs and comfortable seating make it the perfect setting for long lunches, escaping the sun or spending time together late into the night, with atmospheric lighting.

There are games to play in the garden (table tennis, boules, swingball, badminton rackets and shuttlecocks, children’s croquet) and the pool to enjoy. The private heated pool is 10 x 5 meters, saltwater and has an electric cover. It is open from April to October. A saltwater pool uses the process of electrolysis to purify the water instead adding chlorine. This means softer water and fewer risks for allergies and irritation to your eyes and skin. Saltwater pools only have about 10% of the salinity of the ocean. It’s positioned to take in the view over the fields and woods beyond, so lie back on the sun loungers and deck chairs and enjoy it! If you are seeking solitude there are several private spots in the garden.

We are delighted that Le Mas has been awarded 5 stars by the Dordogne Perigord Tourist Board, on behalf of the Ministry of Tourism. There are only 15 other hotels and gites in the Dordogne with 5 stars. The classification is based on the facilities, space, state of the accommodation and information we offer guests. The Times included Le Mazet in their 50 Best French Holidays for 2019. The Daily Telegraph has been to stay in order to review us and has awarded us 9/10, the highest mark they have given any hotel or holiday home in the Dordogne.

Availability of 'Le Mas'


Click on image to open an interactive map

Le Mas is to be found in the South of the Dordogne, just far enough from the summer traffic jams in the Dordogne valley but close to the neighbouring counties of the Lot and the Lot and Garonne.
It is situated between the medieval towns of Monpazier and Beaumont du Périgord, only 40 minutes from Bergerac Airport. The area has much to offer: castles, medieval fortified towns, UNESCO World Heritage Sites, weekly local markets, antique markets and night markets where the locals and tourists sit at long tables in the town squares and eat local specialities. There are also wine tours, prehistoric caves and much more to do.

It stands on top of a hill and has glorious, uninterrupted views of the surrounding fields, woods and the village. Our closest neighbours are 800m away, so you will have complete privacy.

    Waanzinnige locatie, alles erop en eraan in een prachtig decor. Bijzonder gastvrij ontvangen op Le Mas et Le Mazet! Een prachtige hoeve met geweldige buitenruimte waar je heerlijk tot rust komt, fijn zoutwater zwembad en alle ruimte. Ook spellen (jeu de boules, tafeltennis tafel, boogschieten) en uitzichten… je kijkt prachtig weg over het glooiende landschap. Binnen zijn de huizen prachtig en sfeervol, met open haard, mooie (slaap)vertrekken en van alle gemakken voorzien. We hebben hier genoten met drie generaties familie en kijken terug op een heerlijke week. De omgeving is mooi en typisch Frans, leuke stadjes in de buurt en de eigenaren denken goed mee en ontzorgen. Kortom, een enorme aanrader om hier eens te vertoeven. Zoals de eigenaren zelf zeggen… “leven als een god in de Dordogne” is helemaal zoals wij het hebben ervaren!

Restaurants, food & wine

The area is known for its culinary wealth, there are lots of diverse restaurants around and about which offer great food.
If you want to cook yourself, there are lots of markets to go to. Furthermore there is a supermarket, bakery, pharmacy, bank, post office and lots of other shops to be found in Beaumont (12 minutes) or in Monpazier (15 minutres).
There is a huge amount of history around here - Monpazier and Beaumont were built by Edward I of England in the 13th century.


Here is a selection of activities you can do when at Le Mas & Le Mazet. We are more than happy to advise you on routes, rentals and directions, to make bookings for you, and to provide you with maps.

Gentle countryside walks
Enjoy country walks right on your doorstep, either through woodland and across fields or along the country lanes to the medieval village of Montferrand de Perigord (20 mins away) or to the 12th Century church at Sainte Croix (20 mins away). There are walks all around, for instance from Monpazier to the megaliths.

Hiking trails
There are nearby trails to suit everyone, from the Grand Randonnées such as GR36 and GR6, to circular walks (5km to 40km) around Monpazier which are signposted.

Bike hire
If you're not bringing your own bike, they can be hired from BikeHireDirect through us, who bring and collect the bikes/helmets/locks etc. to and from the property, giving a great service.

The property is just off cycle route 26, a 70km loop to Monpazier, Cadouin and back. There are many other cycle routes nearby bringing you to the hidden gems of the Dordogne, away from the tourists.

You can rent canoes (1 to 4 people) in different locations, in the Dordogne or Vézère valleys. The rental company will meet you at the end with a minibus to bring you back to the start. Canoeing is a fantastic way of experiencing the beauty and grandeur of nature and the châteaux along the valleys.

Swimming in the river
You can swim in the Dordogne river at Le Buisson (25 mins drive) where there is a 800m-long, supervised beach.

Barge rides
You can take a barge along the Dordogne with châteaux perched high above you, from either Beynac or La Roque Gageac. Alternatively you can hop on a barge in Bergerac and hope to see herons, kites, kingfishers, cormorants, coypus and turtles.

Horseback riding
Local equestrian centres offer the opportunity to go horse riding - you might even imagine yourself as a Knight Templar in the Middle Ages!

There are several golf clubs where you can play: Lolivarie golf club (30 mins drive); Château les Merles (30 mins); and La Marterie (50 mins).

There are local markets in Beaumont on Tuesdays and Saturdays, and in Monpazier on Thursdays. There are extra markets in the mushroom and truffle season, and night markets in the summer.

Wine tours
The vineyards around Bergerac go all the way back to the Roman times and were then taken over and developed by the monasteries. There are wine routes, vineyards to visit and events. Everything you could possibly need to enjoy the great wines grown around Bergerac, like Monbazillac, Pecharmant, Saussignac and Montravel.

Concerts and festivities
There are regular concerts and festivities, often linked to Saints' days. Classical music in Paunat (beginning of August), live music at the night concerts where the locals dance the night away, and a Jazz festival in Bergerac in the month of May.

Night time guided tours by torchlight
In the summer, from around 9pm, take a torchlight guided tour in Monpazier, Beaumont du Périgord and Cadouin.
Guided tours during the day are also on offer.

Prehistoric sites
More than 50 caves and rock shelters, traces of settlement, burial places have been discovered in the Perigord. You can visit the National Prehistorical Museum in Les Eyzies, numerous caves and old settlements and of course the cave paintings at Lascaux.

There are reported to be 1001 châteaux in the Dordogne! The highlights are Biron, Beynac, Castelnaud with activities based on its collection of weaponary, and Milandes - the home of Josephine Baker which now hosts falconery in its gardens.

There are two magical gardens worth visiting, if you have the time: the classical Jardins du Manoir d'Eyrignac and the hanging gardens of Marqueyssac.

Natural caves
The caves of Maxange (18km) are exceptional because of size and quality of their stalactites and stalagmites, and the eccentric crystalized panels which are remarkable.

Hot air ballooning
Montgolfière du Périgord just outside La Roque-Gageac (40km) arranges flights.
