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.
“Le Charme” (The Beech Tree) is half-way up the mature forest. Private and yet very close to the pool, its situation will suit you perfectly if it is peace you are after.

About this location
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

"A high quality residence in a beautiful setting"
We very much enjoyed our stay at Cournet Haut, the chalet we stayed in was spacious and comfortable, very well equipped. The owners made us very welcome: we had two dogs with us and they were welcomed too. We enjoyed the local walking, maps showing suggested routes were made available at reception. The pool was a welcome spot to relax after a long walk. The village of St Pompon is lovely, all the basic needs are there.

"A peaceful location with plenty to keep the children occupied so parents can relax!"
The accommodation was as described on the website, very clean and well equipped. Most of our time was spent outside making full use of the excellent leisure facilities. The children particularly loved the pool which is well maintained and ideal for parents to sit and relax by while supervising. We also enjoyed tennis, badminton, table tennis and boules. A very welcoming location and ideal for exploring the surrounding area.

"A warm welcome in beautiful surroundings"
Cornet-Haut is in a beautiful,peaceful location ideal for lazing around the pool or for being active [ walking, biking etc ] Restaurants nearby are excellent and there is lots to see and do in the area. The owners are very helpful - nothing is too much trouble.

"A lovely place to stay - owners couldn't be more helpful"
We had a really good, relaxing holiday at Cournet Haut. It's a well-maintained site in a lovely setting. There are a series of wooden chalets within sloping woodland as well as converted stone buildings 'on the flat'. The chalets are being completely refurbished and I would try and get one of those - we saw the standard of one of the refurbished stone buildings and it was excellent - 5 star. That said, we stayed in one of the unrefurbished chalets and still thought it was really good value for money. The key thing is that the site is run and managed by the owners who go out of their way to sort out any problems or anything you need. The swimming pool is a good size and maintained spotlessly, there is the added bonus of free bike hire and several off-road routes - maps provided in reception. There are no grocery facilities on site but the village with baker, butcher, bar, pharmacy and a really good restaurant is just a 5-10 minute walk away - or we just hopped on one of the bikes to get the morning croissants. This is very much a get away from it all place - very peaceful but with lots to do if you want to.
