The house

Welcome in Mas de Dompierre, an authentic, restored farmhouse in Limousin where Hanne and Dirk will offer you a carefree holiday. The Mas is only rented out as a holiday home so you have complete privacy.

The farmhouse dates from 1881 and all original elements have been saved during the restoration in 2001. The interior walls are made from loam and lime which create a very authentic atmosphere. The heart of the house is the living room with open plan kitchen. A large cosy fire place tempts you into enjoying a glass of wine. At the back of the house is a large terrace complete with built-in barbecue and adjacent the swimming pool plus small built-in children’s pool. There is even a small sandy beach where young children can play or the older ones can relax.
There is also the possibility to rent bicycles or a motorbike to explore the area. A jacuzzi has been installed in a pleasant spot on the terrace. The rates and usage can be discussed on site.

Pets are welcome and can wander around freely on the domain. In the back of the 1 hectare large garden, with old orchard, a small playground has been laid out complete with goal posts for a game of football. It is also possible to make a campfire . Since the Mas has a slightly elevated position you have a breathtaking view over the valleys, meadows and forests. The land of milk and honey.

The ground floor of the holiday home consists of a living room with fire place, open kitchen with large gas stove, adjacent is the dining room and a separate bathroom. The kitchen is equipped with all sorts of kitchen utensils and appliances such as microwave oven, coffee maker, espresso machine, toaster etc.
On the first floor are four bedrooms, one with en-suite bathroom and double bed (160x200cm). Opposite this room are two bedrooms, one with two single beds (80-200cm) and the other with double bed (160x200cm). And then there is a children’s room with two adjustable children’s beds of 80x210cm for children up to 12 years old. The guests in these rooms can use the bathroom next to the Master bedroom via a separate entrance or the one downstairs.

The attic floor has its own bathroom and wash basin, wc and walk-in shower (100x120cm). This is one large space with two double beds (160x200cm). Extra children’s cots can be place, we have one cot with adjustable base available.
Note: It is possible to rent the Mas for two to five people. For more information and prices see our other ad on Gites: Le Coin Perdu.

Surroundings

location Click on image to open an interactive map

Mas de Dompierre is located in a small hamlet: Cros Sud which is part of the village Dompierre-les-Eglises. Cros has about twenty homes and is a small picturesque hamlet, seemingly unaffected by time, amidst extensive rolling farmlands, forests and lakes. Haute Vienne is a very green region with lots of rural villages. But also a very quite region without mass tourism so you can still enjoy the peace and quiet of beautiful nature. Haute Vienne is one of the three departments of Limousin, next to Creuse and Corrèze. Cros is located in the middle of three large nature parks. To the south are the parks regional Perigord- Limousin and Millevache and Limousin. To the north, Cros borders ‘ park regional naturel de la Brenne’ . The area is known as the green heart of France! There is still plenty of space and peace, even complete silence can still be found here. There is also an important heritage of architecture and art present in the many religious Romanesque buildings, the fortified castles, the medieval towns and the famous tradition of porcelain and leather processing.

Restaurants, food & wine

Make sure not to miss the 'Marches de Producteurs' in Le Dorat , a small village 17 km from Cros. These are held every Thursday during the summer months (July and August). Local farmers and meat, dairy and vegetable vendors have their best products on offer. These are sold in several stalls in the market square. You can buy Limousin beef and local vegetables at very affordable prices. And if you do not feel like cooking in your holiday home you can have it prepared for you on the spot. There are several barbecues where you can have your meat grilled. Large tables are set complete with plates and cutlery. So join in with the fun!
For restaurants in Dorat we recommend: La Dent de Loup and La Marmite.
If you only want a small bite to eat you do not have to drive far: at about 8km from Cors is a lively bar-restaurant L’Escapade in Magnac-Laval.

Wat een bijzonder huis is dit!! We hebben als familie erg genoten van ons verblijf in jullie huis. Die schitterende tuin en dat heerlijke zwembad. We hebben het heel fijn gehad. We zijn hartelijk door jullie ontvangen en ook konden we bij jullie terecht als er iets was! Het huis is heel comfortabel en wat een heerlijke bedden hebben jullie! Veel gezwommen, lekker genoten van de grote tuin en de vele zitjes. Onze schoonzoon kon heerlijk fietsen, er werd gesport en de kleinkinderen genoten van het kleine strandje wat er was en het zwembad. Het was een vakantie die we niet snel zullen vergeten!
Bedankt Hanne!

Hallo Han en Dirk,

Wij hebben ons 50 jarig huwelijk met kinderen en kleinkinderen gevierd in jullie “Mas de Dompierre”
Een prachtige oude, “gerestaureerde” boerderij met een hele grote tuin en een adembenemend uitzicht.
De bij het zwembad aanwezige ligstoelen waren zeer comfortabel.
Ruime kamers en badkamers voor onze familie met 10 personen.
Het koken in de keuken was een genot met allerlei aanwezige voorzieningen.
Voor vragen stonden jullie onmiddellijk en vriendelijk klaar.
Wat ons opviel waren de uitstekende bedden en een zeer proper huis.
Ga gerust je vakantie hier boeken, je zal er geen spijt van krijgen.

Bedankt Han,

Iny en Jan Smorenburg

Graag willen wij u dit verblijf aanbevelen. Zeker omdat de gastvrouw en gastheer u vriendelijk en behulpzaam ontvangen. Alle ruimtes zijn netjes en deugdelijk onderhouden en wie van romantiek houdt, kan in dit verblijf zijn hartje ophalen. 's Avonds bij de open haard nagenieten met een goed glas Franse wijn,
of even vertoeven in de jacuzzi. Het landschap is daarnaast oogverblindend mooi en lieflijk en de ochtendzon begeleidt de jubelzang der vogels. In Nederland zeggen wij : "Leven als God in Frankrijk"

Als je ooit wil leven als " God in Frankrijk" is dit the Place to Be.
Alles begint met een schitterende ontvangst zodat je je direct thuis voelt. Daarna is het alleen nog maar genieten, genieten en vooral genieten. Het huis biedt enorm veel confort en alles is er wat er moet zijn. De tuin straalt enorm veel rust uit en schenkt je een heel mooi vergezicht. La Douce France op z'n best. In de omgeving valt er bijzonder veel te ontdekken. Mas de Dompierre heeft een bijzonder plekje in ons hart veroverd. Een aanrader voor iedereen.
Wat ons ook bijzonder getroffen heeft zijn de eigenaars. Zij voeren met liefde hun vak uit en schenken de residenten een warm verblijf toe.
