Introducing the perfect summer rentals you should be heading to this summer.
Situated between the scenic Loire Valley and Pyrenees mountains, Dordogne proves itself to be a true gem that lies at the heart of the South of France. With this in mind, we introduce you to Le Mas & Le Mazet – the ultimate Dordogne-bound holiday gîteas.
With hilltop views in abundance and rustic cobbled walls giving the two abodes an idyllic rustic tinge, they situate themselves as the perfect getaway when seeking respite from the buzz of everyday life – a reality that owners Rupert Springfield and Franck van der Hooft lived out when they gave up their life in the city of Amsterdam in a bid to focus on their marvellous properties, both of which are available to rent this year.
Starting with Le Mas, up to 10 bedrooms are up for grabs in the rustic farmhouse-esque offering, which aesthetically harks on the 16th-century accents of the house. From an exquisite dining table and covered summer kitchen providing a backdrop from which to indulge in a French feast, to a saltwater swimming pool conveniently bringing a taste of seaside living to the residence’s front door, it promises to host you and a group of friends for a relaxing stay.
If you are in search of a more intimate getaway, however, Le Mazet may be the choice for you. With the quaint cottage inviting one or two guests to stay under its exposed beams roof, if a solo trip or romantic weekend away is what you seek, this location will deliver. With access to a private garden blooming with fragrant lavender and boasting sun loungers, the location promises to cater to your every need – a statement that is backed up by the Ministry of Tourism, which has awarded Springfield and van der Hooft’s property 4-stars.
As if the above was not enough to appeal to holiday-seekers, with hidden gems such as shooting stars and meteorite shower viewing spots and the charming town of Cloitre de Cadouin a mere stone’s throw away from both properties, expect to experience rural France in all of its beauty throughout your stay.
Available to rent separately or together, culminating in an overall 13-person capacity, no matter the size or scale of your trip, Le Mas & Le Mazet are able to accommodate, branding them as the ultimate summer destinations.
