Domaine de Cournet-Haut, which was once a 17th century hunting lodge, is today home to a peaceful and beautifully restored holiday residence. Set on 13 acres of gardens, lawns and bright mature forest, it provides the space and serenity for great family holidays and relaxing country breaks. There are a total of 8 houses to rent on the domain, but with a maximum capacity of 39 and the houses well spread apart, you will still enjoy the tranquility of your surroundings. Domaine de Cournet-Haut has been family run for 35 years and we are always onsite to give recommendations and to make your visit to our area as enjoyable as possible.

“La Bergerie” which makes up part of an internal courtyard is a mere stone’s throw from the swimming pool and its terrace overlooks the garden and tennis court. The house received a complete makeover in 2011 giving added comfort and light yet retaining its original charm.

Further details indoors

Inside “La Bergerie” – more detailed:

La Bergerie was once a sheepfold and thanks to a lot of care and love, it has become a four person charming little cottage, having lost none of its original Périgourdin features.

The ground floor consists of a bright kitchen (equipped with a four ring hob, multifunction oven/microwave, dishwasher and all the necessary kitchenware). From here you cross the bunkroom, separated from the corridor by a curtain. Three steps then lead to the living area, complete with antique furniture, wood burning stove and satellite TV. This room opens onto the south facing terrace, a private suntrap which makes breakfasts pure moments of bliss.

On the first floor, an open mezzanine accommodates the double bedroom, and the separate bathroom and toilet. La Bergerie is part of the original buildings surrounding the courtyard; it offers views on the gardens, and the tennis court.

The Dordogne region

“The Dordogne département is for many people the picture-perfect image of the French countryside, a gentle landscape of patchwork fields, hilltop towns, turreted mansions and jade-green woods. Named after the most important of the region’s seven rivers, the Dordogne is better-known to the French as Périgord, spiritual home to two of the country’s enduring culinary passions – foie gras and the black truffle. The Dordogne is famous for its stunning cave paintings, as well as for its many fortified chateaux and bastide towns – reminders of the bloody battles waged here during the Middle Ages and the Hundred Years’ War.” – Lonely Planet Guide

Here in Domaine de Cournet Haut, you will be ideally located to visit many of the stunning sites of the region.

"Perfect accommodation in peaceful, tranquil surroundings."

Domaine de Cournet-Haut is a perfect base for exploring this part of the Dordogne. The property is very well equipped & maintained, the owners have thought of just about everything. La Bergerie is beautifully & tastefully decorated & furnished, peaceful and quiet with beautiful gardens and grounds. Warm welcome from the friendly and generous owners who were happy to answer any queries and provide any local information we needed e.g.maps for local walks.
Excellent on site facilities e.g. covered parking, bicycle hire (road & mountain bikes), boules. Five minutes by car to well-stocked village supermarket. Trouble-free drive from Bergerac Airport. Close to Domme, La Roque
Gageac, Beynac & Sarlat. We loved our stay here, couldn't fault it in any way.
