Le Jardin des Amis is set on a 7 acre site and guests are welcome to wander in our wild-flower meadow and perhaps spot grazing deer; stroll through the woods or orchard and help themselves to apples, walnuts or fresh figs (when in season). For children (and the young at heart) there is plenty of room to run off energy or join in an informal summer sports tournament!
If your ideal holiday is simply to relax and do nothing, the peace and quiet to be found beside our pool in the warm sunshine is the place to do it!
The swimming pool
The swimming pool (open from 1 May – 30 September) is a generous 12m x 6m with a sloping depth of 1 to 2m. The water is kept sparkling clean by the use of a ‘salt-system’ which is kinder to skin and eyes (particularly for eczema sufferers) than the traditional chlorine system as well as being more environmentally friendly.
In the interests of safety our swimming pool is fenced and has approved alarms in line with current French legislation.
There are ample sun loungers, comfy deckchairs and umbrellas for relaxing around the pool.
Pool Bar and BBQ
As well as housing books and games, our summer pool bar area (run as an ‘honesty bar’) provides an environment where guests can socialise with a drink and make new friends after a day out and about in the glorious Dordogne.
Two large barbecues are situated beside the bar and are perfect for guests who wish to share a meal with new (or old) friends. These are in addition to the barbecues found on the terrace of each individual gite.
