Le Jardin des Amis offers character holiday accommodation in the heart of the Dordogne in South West France, in an area known as the Perigord Noir, close to Les Eyzies and Sarlat. Each of our self catering gites has its own individual terrace area and all of our properties have access to our large swimming pool, pool side bar and barbecue facilities.
Jon and Sue Long, the on-site owners, have lived in France for eight years and they are on hand to offer advice on the best tourist attractions, restaurant and shops... and will happily make bookings for you and generally work to ensure you have a fabulous stress free holiday.
Our holiday gites are ideally situated between the Dordogne and Vezere rivers and just a short walk (less than 500 metres) from the centre of the pretty, medieval village of Meyrals. Here you'll find a 'depot de pain', post office, restaurant/bar, a brocante, several galleries/ateliers and a small weekly, summer market. See our contact page for exact location.
We have a total of seven self catering holiday properties on site, all of different sizes, with individual character and features. Our largest gite will comfortably sleep 8-9 people whilst our smallest are ideal for two.
For those on touring holidays, be it by car, motorbike, bicycle or walking, and for couples/friends looking for a short break our studios (minimum stay 2 nights) are perfect! We have a barn where bikes can be stored securely overnight and for those who need to keep in touch with home or work, free WIFI is provided in all accommodation.
We really do want our holiday cottages to offer something for everyone which is why, during the renovations, Magnolia Gite was adapted for those with reduced mobility. There are no steps to negotiate and entrances and shower are wide enough to comfortably accommodate a wheelchair. We are happy to discuss your particular requirements to ensure suitability.
If you would like to bring your dog to share your holiday we are usually happy to help. We can accommodate a dog in most of our cottages and advise on procedures to follow regarding 'pet passports': please let us know when booking that you would like to bring a dog.
Some of our holiday cottages are suitable for year round rental, having wood burners, central heating and satelite TV. If you are looking for a low season break or a longer winter let please get in touch with us. We can sometimes accommodate those who'd like to rent a cottage for less than a week - please email us.
We have seven self catering properties at Le Jardin des Amis and we can accommodate up to 28 people. If you are a club or an association or you are a group of friends or family wishing to holiday together our holiday accommodation may be just what you're looking for. Please contact us to discuss.
