France at her best! That is the Perigord Noir with its medieval towns, 1001 Castles and the Dordogne valley that encompasses one of France's main gastronomic regions, with vineyards, poultry farms and truffle-rich woodlands. Your hosts Henk & Corrie found their dream location in 2017 and refurbished this former 400 year old farm to Maison Cravelle. It is magnificently positioned on top of a hill where a small scale holiday resort could be realized. It offers 4 beautifully renovated gîtes for rental. This place is magnificent, with stunning 360 degrees views and breathtaking silence. Away from mass tourism; a place where you can truly relax. You may even enjoy the view of deer that approach the house just around sunrise or sunset.


With its characteristic stone walls and wooden beams, Maison Cravelle offers comfortable holiday homes including all modern amenities. Luxury, space, privacy, large and comfortable beds, a modern kitchen and free wifi everywhere. All gîtes have a TV screen with Chromecast, for conveniently streaming content from your smartphone or tablet. There is no cable or satellite.

If requested we happily drive to the local bakery to get you your warm croissants and a fresh baguette.  Maison Cravelle is a lovely place to meet nice people from all over the world. Enjoy a fine dinner during sunset with a good glass of wine, while the children play in a safe environment.

Maison Cravelle is a very special place where you'll feel immediately at home. A personal touch, hospitality, safety and quality are our values that we would like to share. When our guests have a good time, we do too!
