    Holiday Rental House – 
    3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6
    Inspected and accredited by 'Association Tourisme & Handicaps' for wheelchair accessibility. Inspected by Clévacances and awarded 3 keys (the equivalent of 3 stars).

    Near the historic market town of Duras, Colombine is a suitable centre for visits to the Dordogne valley with its world famous prehistoric cave paintings, cliff dwellings, and romantic mediaeval chateaux, as well as the wine chateaux of St. Emilion/Bordeaux and Entre Deux Mers. There are vineyards and orchards in abundance, the latter often devoted to producing the famous pruneaux d’Agen while everywhere you are reminded of the historical importance of a region that provided the backcloth to much of the 100 Years War which left as its legacy many fine mediaeval chateaux and the ‘bastides’ or fortified market tow...

    Additional amenities & feature info
    We have renovated our old prune oven barn (we're not sure exactly how old it is, but it features on the Plan Napoleon which makes it at least 160 years old) into a cottage. The cottage is well equipped and furnished and sleeps 6 in three bedrooms – one double (160x200) and two twin (2 beds 90x200), although please note that one of the twin rooms can also be converted to make a king. It is baby and toddler friendly with a cot or bed rails available; and a highchair. There is a bathroom with bath, open shower, washbasin and WC; a separate WC with hand washbasin; and a shower room with washbasin and shower. The cottage is all on one level, so no stairs to negotiate, and is wheelchair accessible.

    For those seeking winter accommodation or a long let, the cottage is double glazed and w...

I would highly recommend this accomodation to anyone!! As we drove up the drive on our arrival the cottage and outside pool/eating area just simply blew us away! When we ventured inside it was just as breathtaking as the outside space! The building has been very well renovated with stunning stone walls. So pretty! There is lots of space inside... more

We stayed for 3 weeks at the end of May beginning of June. The weather was mixed at the beginning but turned to brilliant sunshine toward the end. The setting is beautiful, with the singing of the frogs and crickets at night and glow worms lighting the evening. The accommodation is spacious and well suited for those with mobility concerns.... more

This was our second visit to Colombine and once again we appreciated the layout of the property and its tranquil location. Our daughter, who is disabled and relies on use of a power chair, enjoyed the freedom afforded by the level surfaces both inside and outside the cottage. Unfortunately we were not blessed with particularly good weather during our stay... more
