Gîtes Lacombe: Tradit ...

Have you decided to come on holiday in Périgord Noir ? Do not do things by halves and for a 100% authentic stay , rent a pretty Périgordine house in traditional stones , fresh and full of charm. Gîtes Lacombe is a small family business, which since 1980 offers houses for seasonal rental , completely renovated and with a real warm welcome service!

From the earth to the walls

Nadine and Francis Lacombe are Périgordins. They live in this pretty corner of black Périgord , between the Vézère Valley and the Dordogne Valley , where the sunny hillsides are punctuated by crops and pastures . Agriculture, they know well because it is their first job: they are breeders and maintain an orchard of 15 ha of walnut trees .

In 1980, however, they wanted to diversify their activity . Young parents, they dream of a small family investment, in this rapidly expanding tourist context . The Dordogne is still a jewel to polish, little known apart for its caves ... They then undertake to renovate themselves in their spare time, a small mill in ruins. Hands in the concrete mixer, they are greeted by a British travel agency which asks them if they have plans for the rental of the property ... Hum hum ... We then offer them an interesting partnership (the beginnings of AirBnB live !), the agency takes care of promoting the property and they only have to take care of the reception and rental management.

Renovations? Not even afraid !

30 years later, the Petit Moulin is still there!

It is a real success! The advent of the Sarladais and the medieval city as a tourist destination gave them the necessary boost: they decided to restore other goods, then their family home. Apart from plumbing and electricity, they take care of all the catering themselves! It must be said that thanks to their profession as farmers, they have all the essential machines for the shell, they know how to do and are motivated!

Today, Nadine and Francis are still farmers. They have 3 children, 2 of whom work with them: their son manages the agricultural business and Audrey, after studying tourism, joined them in the management of the 12 lodgings scattered over several surrounding municipalities.

Houses for rent in Black Périgord

Gîtes Lacombe is 12 houses of different capacities, to rent for tourist stays in 4 municipalities: Saint-Amand de Coly , Saint-Crépin Carlucet , Tamniès and Proissans . Some villas are autonomous and independent, others organized like a small hamlet and benefit from a common outdoor space. All the houses have access to a (very beautiful) swimming pool and they enjoy a superb view over the unfolding valley or the Périgord countryside

Family vacation ? A stay with friends or with several families, each in a gîte but all together for the BBQ , playing in the water and playing a game of pétanque ? Guests have access to a tennis court and while the grown-ups take an aperitif on one of the magnificent terraces , the teenagers take advantage of the free wifi , the little ones take a swing … Perigord-style happiness!

With an accommodation capacity of 2 to 14 people , the gîtes are all of different sizes, but each one retains the charm of Périgord with beautiful stones, sloping roofs , floors with velux windows or sitting dogs. In Périgord it is hot in summer and the old ones had it (bio climatism before the hour…), so the traditional houses in Périgord are all exposed to the south, but with small openings to preserve the heat while letting in the winter sun. The large walls protect you from temperature variations: it is always good in lodges even in the height of summer !

What the hosts appreciate is the discretion but also the kindness of the Lacombe family: in case of problems, they are responsive and available .
