About Caroline Macdonald

We bought this farm in 2010, when it was in need of total renovation. We have totally modernised and updated the farm, while keeping its original character and charm.

Caroline Macdonald purchased this farmhouse in 2010

Why Caroline Macdonald chose Aveyron

Lacombe is in a spectacular setting. It has far-reaching south-west facing views, is surrounded by oak forest and overlooks a gorge. It is very quiet, yet within driving distance of three lively villages, including Najac, one of the Most Beautiful Villages in France, with its medieval castle and bastide.

What makes this farmhouse unique

The house has been modernised to a high standard with very large, airy rooms all with wonderful views. There are two reception rooms plus a very large eat-in kitchen. All bedrooms have en suites and two master main bedroom suites have independent access. Lacombe is cosy in winter with a wood-burning stove and underfloor heating. There is a large private garden and the property is totally secluded with a 12 x 5m pool.

Luxury in the rustic countryside

  • 5 of 5

Wow, what a wonderful place! Beautifully refurbished with lots of space and modern functionality but plenty of charm and character remaining from the old farm building heritage. Pool and outdoor dining have fantastic views over the nearby valley and into the distant countryside. Surrounding countryside provides all manner of outdoor activities; hiking, biking, canoeing, camping as well as a relaxed rural setting.
