Situated in 56 acres of our own meadows and woodland. The farmhouse is set within a large private courtyard. The 200yr old stone built farmhouse is equipped with a modern touch while not losing that traditional French feel. The kitchen is hand made from using local chestnut timber, there is a six burner gas hob and double oven rangemaster cooker so the self catering can be much for enjoyable and stress free with the amount of people in your party. There is a four seater table in front of the log burner in the kitchen area for those early risers or late evenings chatting in front of the log fire. There is also a large solid oak dinning table which comfortably seats 8 people.
To the front of the farmhouse there is a terrace with outside dining, bbq and hot tub area, to the rear of the farmhouse there is an enclosed garden, laid to lawn with shrubs, also great for outside dining and bbq's.
Onsite we have a 12mtr x 6mtr heated salt water swimming pool with 3mtr intergrated paddling pool. Although the pool is shared with ourselves and Kinda Kamping guests there is a large decking and grassed area around the pool. We feel it is never overcrowded and is a great way to meet new people and friends while on holiday. The pool area is fenced to meet approved safety regulations with a number code locking system to the pool gate.
Kindá Kamping is Luxury Bell tent glamping situated in our woodland but within a few minuits walk to other onsite facilities. This is a great way to experience a holiday going back to nature but with a comfortable and modern day approach.
Although we have two accommodations there is a field in between the accommodations so neither overlook each other and both have there own private spaces.
There are many onsite activities to keep everybody occupied should you wish. We have our own mountain bike trails, small fishing lake, badminton and table tennis to mention but a few.
This quiet, tranquil setting is ideal to relax and unwind and enjoy the fantastic views of the Perigord National Park and it's wildlife but within easy distance to many attractions including Limoges and Brantome (otherwise known as Little Venice), as well as beautiful safe swimming lakes, canoeing and numerous french markets, making this the ideal holiday destination for all.
We are David and Leigh Smith and together with our son Ethan we run our small holiday business in Dordogne, France.
We are very active and love doing anything outdoors, especially cycling and love being out and about enjoying the beautiful surroundings and weather.
Leigh Smith purchased this cabin in 2002
We bought our property in September 2002 on a spur of the moment weekend trip away and we thought it was a great location for offering cycling holidays.
Since bringing up our two children and carrying out the renovations on the derelict buildings, we have come to realize what a great place this is for families to come, unwind, relax, have fun and try to live life how we used to when we were younger. Here children still have the freedom to run around and play without having to watch their every move.
Why choose us over the others??
We are at the end of a small hamlet therefore very in a very quiet area. (The marker on the map is not quite in the correct area, we are at the end of Le Montechabroulet)
The farmhouse and Bell Tent Camping have their own private areas and are not overlooked by each other, in fact there is a field between the two properties. If you fancy and adult evening out we do offer child minding services as well as airport runs etc.etc.
