This charming 5-star16th century restored farmhouse (Le Mas) and 4-star characterful cottage (Le Mazet) are two detached houses on the property which can be rented separately or together. Both properties have their own private areas of the garden.
Le Mas has 5 spacious bedrooms with en suite bathrooms, a large kitchen and sitting room (both with big fireplaces, terracotta tiled floors and beams), a fantastic summer kitchen with views over the private swimming pool and the countryside beyond.
Le Mazet is approached through the garden and has 1 bedroom with ensuite bathroom on the lower ground floor and a lovely sitting room with open-plan kitchen on the upper ground floor. There is a large fireplace with wood burner in the sitting room, and the views are spectacular. Le Mazet has no use of the pool.
Both houses were renovated by Joris van Grinsven (renowned architect and interior designer) in 2016.
We are delighted that Le Mas has been awarded 5 stars by the Dordogne Perigord Tourist Board, on behalf of the Ministry of Tourism, and Le Mazet 4 stars. 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 accomodation and information we offer guests.
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.
Le Mas & Le Mazet are situated in Sainte Croix, a hamlet nestled between the medieval towns of Monpazier and Beaumont du Périgord, only 40 minutes from Bergerac Airport.
Jasmine, roses and wisteria climb the stone walls and around the shuttered windows. There are unspoilt views over glorious countryside and to the 12th century village church.
2.5 acres of garden offer you private areas to relax amongst lavender and rosemary, enjoy the wildlife and birds, or dine out under the stars.
There is much to explore in the area. Markets selling local produce and antiques. Castles, churches and prehistoric caves, as well as restaurants serving the region’s specialities (such as truffles, duck and foie gras). There are stunning walks and a well-known cycle route on the doorstep; canoeing down the river, golf, horse riding. We are happy to advise on what to do and where to go.
