Looking for a family escape? Find your dream holidays in the Perigord, near sarlat!

While driving through the lovely small roads on the heights of Sarlat, I discovered Combas, Village de Gîtes. This is a magical place where all the family and groups of friends of all sizes, can gather for a fantastic stay in Dordogne. Definitely not to be missed!

A family story

Located 10 km from Sarlat, the hamlet of Combas Village de Gîtes, offers 24 high quality gites, all built in local stones from the Black Perigord. On this large site of more than 7 hectares, the Coy family, has been living here since 1630 and has developed this village of gîtes slowly with care and passion. In 1985, the big meadow, which is today the welcome reception of the village of gites, was farmland growing tobacco (a very popular crop in the region in the last century), holding cows and with small abandoned stone barns. Then the Coy family, decided to change their business. Tobacco was no longer a viable crop and tourism had developed in the region bringing a favourable economic context for them to develop this lovely holiday hamlet. Firstly, five buildings were refurbished over five years. In 1990 and 1991, 11 additional gites were built and in 1994 one more, until reaching a total of 24 in 2018.

A gîte village: conviviality and family spirit

What is a gîtes village? It is a combination of the quality gîtes: the pleasure of a well-equipped, practical and pleasant holiday home, as well as the qualities of a stay in a holiday village: the conviviality, the activities, the leisure structures, the great atmosphere.
