The smartly renovated interiors of Le Clos Colombier do not conceal the origins of this fine property, located under the auspices of the church spire in the village of Veyrac, close to the town of Limoges.
Twisted oak-beamed ceilings, a partial moat and a tower descending to a sous-terre wine cellar provide glimpses of a history dating back to the 12th century, since when this Maison de Maitre has been a central feature of village life, in this less-discovered but historic region. Reconstructed after the ravages of the French revolution, and recently restored entirely, the property is the home of a French Michelin-starred chef, who owns and runs a local hotel and restaurant.
Unforgettable gastronomic celebrations at the property prepared by the chef and his team can be arranged.
Accommodation is divided over three floors, with three suites – each with two bedrooms – and two further separate bedrooms, sleeping up to 16 guests in total. The property is furnished and equipped to a high standard throughout, and surrounded with an acre of grounds, largely lawn with shade and a pool. The village of Veyrac is within walking distance.
