About the property

Ideal For Family Holidays • Groups Up To 26 Guests Can Holiday-apart-together

Domaine Le Repaire

Our holiday accommodation consist of 5 picturesque country cottages that can sleep up to 26 guests. The separate self-contained cottages are situated on a rocky outcrop bordering a small hamlet in the shadow of the owner’s 18th century manor house, set in 5 acres of wooded parkland. A lovely valley borders Le Repaire, only 1,5 miles from the village of Mareuil with all amenities and halfway between the historic cities of Angoulême and Périgueux.

It’s setting and surroundings offer tranquility, privacy and a save setting for children.

Guest accommodation

All cottages are spacious and comfortable chalk stone farmhouses that have been restored in the typical Périgourdine style with many original features like open fireplaces, heavily beamed rooms and exposed stonework. Two cottages i.e. Chez Misja and La Dronne (sleeping 4 each) have a habitable space of 80 m² and the other three cottages Chez Mimi, Le Boulou and La Belle (sleeping 6 each) have a habitable space of 120 m² each. The cottage La Belle is specially suited for disabled people and has therefore special facilities on the ground flour: no thresholds, a spacious bathroom with anti-skid shower (with special shower chair), a high toilet (with arm supports) and a washing cabinet suited for wheel chairs. The cottages can be rented separately or all together.


The 4-sleep cottages each have 2 spacious bedrooms (double bed and twin bedded) and the other three cottages have two double bedded and one twin-bedded bedroom. All but one of the houses have one bathroom with bath, shower and toilet. La Belle has two bathrooms.

Kitchen facilities

Each kitchen is well equipped and contains all the essentials like oven, microwave, fridge, washing machine, the necessary kitchen utensils and ironing board. Each cottage has its own terrace and garden as well as BBQ and garden furniture. All cottages are provided with linen and bath towels free of charge; new towels are provided every week.

Other amenities

All houses have satellite TV, Wifi, DVD/CD-players, books and games.

Onsite facilities

Guests can make use of the following shared facilities:

Fenced 12 x 6 meter illuminated swimming pool with shower, shaded terrace, sun loungers, tables and chairs

Fenced 3 x 4 meter children’s pool

Tennis court

Covered dining area with dining tables, launchers and large BBQ

Volleyball/badminton field

Children’s playground with table tennis, trampoline, sandpit, swings and slides.

Special features

The cottages and facilities make Le Repaire ideal for family holidays with children. Moreover, renting several cottages together opens the possibility to accommodate larger groups up to 26 persons, enabling them to ‘holiday-apart-together’- an excellent opportunity for group getaways or family gatherings.

The climate here is attractively varied with usually soft spring periods, warm summers, gorgeous autumns and mild winters.

Local activities

Le Repaire is embedded in the open rolling landscape, so characteristic for the Périgord Vert and lies in the heart of the Regional Nature Parc Périgord-Limousin in the Département Dordogne, known for its many castles and prehistoric remains. Within half an hour drive one can practice sports like canoeing, horse riding, fishing, cycling, rock climbing, visit markets, antique shops/fairs and undertake gastronomic and cultural explorations. There are 3 18-holes golf courses in the direct vicinity.


Le Repaire can be reached by air via the airports of Bordeaux, Limoges or Bergerac or by TGV-train via Angoulême.

About Mark van Stapele

We (Pluis and Mark) emigrated beginning of 2000 from Holland to France, which has been our favourite holiday country already for many years before. We changed the hectic live and our demanding professional activities as management consultant and teacher/practitioner in calligraphy in the Netherlands for a calmer life in the beautiful ‘campagne’ of the Périgord.

Over the years we have transformed the Le Repaire estate into a small paradise.

In addition to the existing wooded parkland we have planted many new plants and flowers. What had to be renovated in the cottages has been restored in the original Périgourdine style and furniture and decorations have been brought to a higher standard.

We both speak and write English, French, German, Dutch fluently and some Spanish

Why Mark van Stapele chose Vieux-Mareuil

Once arrived in Le Repaire the first thing our quests say, is: "you can hear the silence". The domain is peaceful and secluded but not isolated, situated in the lovely country side alongside a nice valley, but only 2,5 km away from the village of Mareuil with all amenities. Every morning the local baker stops his van on our doorstep to bring crispy baquettes and fresh croissants for our guests.

Le Repaire is safe and offers lots of space for children to meet and play and sport together.

We have many good restaurants in town and the direct vicinity. Attractive markets in nearby Brantôme and Ribérac, where you can buy local produce. You won't need to drive far to find attractive events and attractions, interesting chateaux and prehistoric remains.
