Location

The Piet Hein Eek holiday homes are located in the Dordogne region of France, on the green hills of the Périgord Vert at the Château de Mavaleix estate in Chalais. The site is approximately one hour’s drive from the lovely town of Limoges and forty minutes from Periqueux; a small town with a number of cosy restaurants and boutiques. Here, you’ll admire the houses and stunning garden, as well as have the opportunity to take a stroll through the beautiful surroundings, visit Jumlihac castle and call at the Saturday market in Thiviers, where you’ll find an array of delicious regional produce. Just a 30 minute drive takes you to Pony Club St Pantaly d’Excideuil, from where you can trek through the glorious countryside on horseback.

Background information

When we began building our holiday homes in the Dordogne in 2006, I thought it would be a piece of cake. This turned out to be far from the truth: the construction, the regulations, the circumstances, the distance, commercial developments (our own building in Eindhoven was also added to the mix) and human conditions all had an influence. The only thing that would have been easy, in hindsight, was to make a tasty documentary about it all, probably with a bunch of loyal viewers. We had all the ingredients for a true television drama. Miraculously, we seem to have survived unscathed. Not thanks to knowledge, providence or other acclaimed qualities, but through luck, patience and the pleasure of building on a dream.

Ruins have always been my great love and are just about the only kind of possession I have sought since childhood. I think this is because a ruin suggests the past, yet at the same time embodies the future, through the possibility of rebuilding. What’s special about the place is that the mill was once built there because of the river for turning the water wheel, the rocks they used to build the walls and dike, the valley where they could collect the water and the forests that supplied the wood for construction. Exactly as I am used to working: with materials, techniques, crafts, whatever I have to hand so that as little time as possible is wasted on other things. We have used traditional building methods, but in a way that the craftsmen would have done it today. Stone, wood, concrete, glass, natural stone; the houses stand within nature and come from nature. Everything is detailed, almost everything is new, nothing is noticeable, it is not architecture that is striking or even to think about. It is sooner architecture that falls away and particularly to stay in.

What is it like to be there? Time and time again I go there with the insecure feeling that I must have been completely crazy to invest so much in a place and a couple of houses, and every time I arrive I think: this is good. Luckily I am not the only one to feel this way and voice my feelings. Actually, it feels like a miracle. The first morning with a cup of coffee on the terrace, a deer walked over the grass in the valley. The water babbles day and night. The large windows give the impression that there is no difference between inside and outside and that they were exactly the same a hundred years ago. If it gets too warm you can take a swim in the over twenty metre-long channel (and even if it is not so warm). Plants shoot out of the ground. You can cook and dine like a god in France, and then sleep like a baby. And the water flows, so there are no mosquitoes!
