The swimming pool
Maison de la Famille is a typically styled Perigordian residence of a well-to-do country family. The exact age is unclear but it is certainly over two hundred years old. Originally owned by the wealthy Breton family, members of whom still live in the region, it is easy to envisage it as it was, when coaches, stabling and a host of servants were all housed and working in the grounds.
The accommodation has been sympathetically renovated and modernised, with especial care being taken to maintain the character and charm of the buildings, ensuring our guests enjoy a high degree of comfort in these most pleasant of surroundings.
Our games area houses a high-quality all-weather table tennis table, a small table football game and a combination pool, snooker, billiards, skittles, table hockey, chess, backgammon, shuffle board and table football system. We also have a quality croquet set and numerous children's toys that are freely available to our guests.
