“Our base in the Dordogne”
We visited Le Jardin des amis in mid-winter and used it as a base from which to search for a house of our own. The weather was cold dreary, -well it was February - and it rained a lot of the time, but the cottage was cosy and had all the equipment we needed. It was particularly nice to have a wood burner and a massive amount of wood! The location was very pleasant too. Sunday market in St Cyprien nearby was great. Another afternoon the sun came out and we walked through some wonderful woodlands. The old village of Meyrals was very pretty indeed and the bakery there was excellent. Getting to the bigger towns in the Vezere was easy and it was great to be close to Les Eyzies. Jon and Sue couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. They gave us plenty of space but were always available for help and advice if asked. They were good company, too, and we had a nice evening in their gorgeous barn conversion. Obviously in that weather we couldn't benefit from the pool or grounds but it was nice to have a little front garden and rear terrace and when the sun did shine we sat out as much as we could. The terrace would have been a real sun trap a little later in the year. Last of all, it was really good value. We payed a lot more for our second week but missed our little cottage in Meyrals.
“Enjoyed our family vacation at Le Jardin des amis”
We fully enjoyed our time in Chene Vert at Le Jardin des amis. Sue and Jon were very helpful both before and during our stay. They went above and beyond the call of duty when a problem with our transportation arose. They gave us ideas about what to do based on our interests and the age of our children. The Dordogne area is full of beautiful scenery, historical sites and interesting attractions. We could have stayed a month and found new things to do and see every day. We loved staying in a 300 year old building - it added to our enjoyment and appreciation of the long history in the area. The pool was a great extra and was very appreciated by our children, and the pool bar was a nice way to meet other guests. We especially enjoyed sitting in our cottage during the evenings and smelling the honeysuckle on the warm air that came through the back door. We hope to be back some time!
“Stunning property in a beautiful part of France.”
We stayed in Chene Vert in May 2010 for a week and in Tilluel in april 2009. Practically, Le Jardin des amis provides a very high standard of accommodation. Both gites were extremely clean and well equipped, light and airy by day and cosy by night. Supermarkets are close by and we enjoyed fresh bread from the local boulangerie (5 mins walk away). We would also recommend the Pizzeria which again is a 5 minute walk to Meyrals, a pretty medieval village. The pool area is fantastic and has lovely views of the orchard and woods beyond. All extremely popular with our 7 year old son whilst we enjoy the poolside honesty bar. The property provides a fantastic base to explore the Dordogne with lots to see and visit for all ages or tastes. Our favourite places are the gardens at the Chateau de Marqueyssac for great views over the Dordogne and a great place for children to run around and explore, Sarlat (for market and shopping) and the nearby airparc (a tree top rope and zip wire park) and all within a very short drive. Sue and John are warm and friendly hosts and make you feel extremely welcome. We have enjoyed both our holidays at Le Jardin des amis, so much so, we are starting to think about planning our third ! We would thoroughly recommend Le Jardin des amis to families, couples or groups!
“An excellent base for exploring chateaux, canoes and caves.”
We recommend Chene Vert very highly, in terms of convenience for so many of the main attractions of the Dordogne and Vezere valleys, great facilities, cleanliness and friendliness. Set in a peaceful and beautiful medieval village, with restaurant, pizzeria, boulangerie and weekly market. Very well equipped gite complex, with lots for children and teenagers to do. On site owners were very knowledgeable and helpful. Set in beautiful countryside with lots of quiet lanes and paths to cycle on, we even cycled to the two nearest chateaux! We would all happily return (teenagers 15 and 17).
“Ideal for being active or lazing”
We stayed outside peak holiday time and enjoyed an excellent stay, a mixture of slumping with a book, eating in or out, and healthy exercise. A car is necessary to get there and for further flung excursions, but there are plenty of excellent walks and cycle rides from the door in interesting rolling countryside. We walked down to Les Eyzies and the Font de Gaume cave paintings (and back!).
Response from the owner Being keen walkers ourselves,we are always happy to give advice on routes for walks or cycle rides and are happy to loan local maps if required.
“Beautiful setting and great location for exploring the Dordogne”
We spent a hugely enjoyable 2 weeks at "Le Jardin des amis" with our 2 children aged 9 and 11. The setting of the gites was beautiful; lovely salt-water pool was greatly enjoyed virtually every day by us; beautiful grounds with plenty to do for the kids; gite was clean and comfortable and had lovely views from the bedrooms. We enjoyed a wide variety of activities and never travelled more than 20 mins by car for any of them, including canoeing, walking, visiting caves, castles and markets. The gites were in a lovely rural location yet only 5 minutes walk to the village with a good restaurant, boulangerie and weekly market. Owners Sue and John were extremely helpful and were great hosts. Would thoroughly recommend for both families and couples.
