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.

“Le Saule is situated at the top of the forest (while only a mere 120 meters from the pool) which means that peace is the main asset of this house. The interior of the house has been completely renovated in 2014, giving it a bright, fresh look.

The Aquitaine/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

"Relaxing, modern accommodation at the heart of the Dordogne"

We found this accommodation through Trip Advisor so were keen to share our thoughts with other travellers. The site is immaculate, well-maintained with lots of facilities (tennis, badminton, table tennis, boules, fab swimming pool) to suit our 11 year old and 14 year old on the days when we decided to stay at "home". The lodge is ideally situated - walking distance of a pretty village with good local shops and a fab restaurant and only 20 minutes drive from some of the best sites in the Dordogne. The lodge itself was clean and modern with very pleasant decor. The kitchen was very well-equipped and had everything we needed for the week.
Would highly recommend Domaine de Cournet-Haut as a place to stay for families of all ages. We will return!

"Idéal pour les enfants"

Nous venons de passer 2 semaines dans le chalet le Pin, basique mais suffisant pour des vacances courtes.Nous sommes des habitués du domaine que nos 2 enfants (13 et 17 ans) adorent depuis qu'il… More

Nous vous remercions de votre commentaire et des informations que vous donnez sur le Domaine et la région. Juste une clarification pour les utilisateurs de Trip Advisor, vous avez laissé votre message sur la page de la Maison "Le Saule" alors que vous étiez au "Pin"...
Merci également pour vos suggestions, nous regrettons seulement que vous ne nous en ayez pas parlé lorsque vous étiez sur place car nombre d'entre elles auraient pu être facilement et immédiatement solutionnées:
- Concernant le four, il est évident que la taille des cuisines (qui restent des cuisines de maisons de vacances) ne permet pas d'y installer un four de dimension standard. Par contre, nous avons des petits fours électriques que nous proposons à nos clients ne souhaitant pas utiliser de micro-onde. Vous auriez dû nous en parler, nous vous en aurions apporté un avec plaisir.
- Comme vous le savez et comme indiqué sur notre site web, nous ne pouvons à ce jour installer la WIFI dans les maisons du bois, ceci à cause du feuillage trop dense. Cependant, comme c'est également stipulé sur notre site, certaines de nos maisons disposent de la WIFI (Forge et Bergerie)...ainsi que d'un grand four traditionnel, d'ailleurs. Vous pouvez aussi, comme vous le savez, utiliser gratuitement la connexion WIFI à la Réception, sur le bureau prévu à cet effet ainsi que dans la grande salle commune qui dispose de tables et chaises pour ceux de nos clients qui souhaitent travailler.
- Les Maisons Nature situées dans le bois disposent d'un écran de télévision avec un lecteur DVD, les chaines TV n'y sont pas disponibles. En revanche, Forge et Bergerie disposent, elles, des chaines de la TNT ainsi que d'un lecteur DVD. Comme vous le mentionnez dans votre message, la salle commune est également équipée d'un grand écran avec la TNT et d'un lecteur DVD, les ados du Domaine aiment d'ailleurs s'y retrouver entre eux.
- Au sujet de votre fils qui a dû remonter dans le noir après son émission préférée, il suffisait de nous le mentionner: nous aurions rallongé le temps d'éclairage nocturne et les lumières seraient restées allumées pour votre ado de 17 ans, lui permettant de gravir la courte distance entre la salle commune et votre maison (environ 70m) sans aucun danger.
- Dernière précision, tous les lits doubles du Domaine, probablement à l'instar de la majorité des lits de l'hôtellerie française, ont une largeur standard de 140cm et non 130cm comme vous le mentionnez dans votre commentaire.

"Fabulous holiday, perfect location, idyllic surrounds"

The residence of Cournet De haut has to be one of my all time favourite holidays. The cabins/villas in the grounds were more than adequate for a base, and all very comfortable and clean. The owners were very helpful with any questions. Pool and views amazing. Only 30minutes from some of the most picturesque scenery I have experienced. Jardins de Marqueysac are a must. Also canoeing along the Dordogne.
I am hoping to book again for next year, and will be recommending to all my friends and family.
