Welcome to Le Jardin des Amis du Seigneur

Le Jardin des Amis Holiday Cottages

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. Each of our six 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.

The Location

The holiday gites are ideally situated between the Dordogne and Vezere rivers and just a short walk (400 metres) from the centre of Meyrals. Meyrals is a pretty village in the heart of the Perigord Noir where you will find a great boulangerie for your morning croissants, a post office, two restaurants /bar, a brocante, several galleries/ateliers and a small weekly, summer market. The surrounding area has a wealth of activities to suit everybody. Less than 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. Visit the numerous local markets including nearby St. Cyprien or Sarlat (one of the biggest in South West France) to sample the gastronomic delights of Perigord Noir, home to the renowned foie gras, duck confit, truffles, walnuts and wines of the region.

Holidays for Everyone

We have six separate gites at Le Jardin des Amis and and we can accommodate up to 26 people; perfect for groups, couples, families and singles. All of our holiday cottages are well equipped and comfortable (free WIFI included) to help ensure your french holiday is about as perfect as possible!  Satelite TV is available except in the studio (Byre). For families we have cots & highchairs available: please ask when booking. Our studio gite has been designed for short stays or ‘couples’ holidays and we are flexible on changeover days, even in high season!

Accessible Holidays

We really do want our holiday cottages to offer something for everyone which is why, during the renovations, the 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.

Winter Lets and Short Stays

Some of our holiday cottages are suitable for year round rental, having wood burners, central heating and satellite 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 also those who’d like to rent a cottage for less than a week – please email us.
