Le Jardin des Amis, a former farm in the Dordogne, South West France has been carefully renovated and provides traditional accommodation in 5 self-catering holiday gites. Each has its own individual terrace area and all benefit from our large swimming pool with poolside bar offering drinks and barbecue facilities.
The owners - Jon and Sue Long - live on site and look forward to welcoming you and ensuring a stress free holiday. We are happy to give advice on places to visit or make bookings for local restaurants/caves/canoes etc.
We are ideally situated in a valley between the Dordogne and Vezere rivers, just a short stroll from the centre of the medieval village of Meyrals which boasts a boulangerie, post office, 2 restaurants, a bar and small weekly market. The surrounding area has a wealth of activities to suit everybody. Less the six kilometres away is Les Eyzies-de-Tayac and the Vezere river valley (now a UNESCO world heritage site due to the concentration of prehistoric caves including the world famous Font de Gaume). The National Museum of Prehistory can also be found in les Eyzies.
Along the Dordogne river, the bastide towns with their marvellous medieval buildings and the chateaux impossibly perched at the tops of craggy rocks will keep the most ardent sightseer in a state of bliss. The more sporting amongst us will appreciate the many activities available including canoeing, rock-climbing, walking, cycling, ballooning and cave exploration to name but a few.
