Maison des Cyprès is a converted barn on the border of the Dordogne and the Charente, named after the 5 cypress trees growing in the garden, with the most amazing views over the rolling countryside.

Maison des Cyprès is the perfect house for families looking to switch off and unwind in rural France. The flexible accommodation is perfect for a family to share a holiday with grandparents or for two families to catch up and enjoy the delights that this wonderful area of France has to offer.

About the house

Even though our house isn’t in Provence we discovered that Provençal farmhouses, called mas, often have three cypress trees, planted in a triangular shape, near the entry to the property.

Traditionally, this is a symbol of hospitality. When long-ago travellers passed by and saw three trees, they knew they could rest their weary feet there for the night, so we would love to welcome you to our Maison des Cyprès.
