This most delightful of gites is reached along a country lane,winding through cow pastures and flower meadows to where it nestles in the hills overlooking a wooded valley.It is a completely seperate and private wing of a beautiful and historic manoir and has been sensitively converted retaining all the orriginal charm while providing a high level of comfort.

The pretty village of St. Pompon is 10 mins. walk away and has all basic shops,two bars and an excellant restaurant.It is worth taking the time to sit in the square and do some serious people watching or saunter through the back lanes and soak in the ambiance. The village celebrates those long Saturday summer evenings with street parties - trestle tables and benches are provided,local food and wine sold at stalls,music played and dancing in the street - great fun!

The Dordogne region

The Dordogne is part of the Aquitaine region in the south west of France and is famed for its wonderful wooded valleys,glorious rivers and more than a thousand fairy tale castles. The area is steeped in history with many delightful medieval towns and villages.The bastide villages and the history of The Hundred Years War are of particular interest.Visitors come from all over the world to see the cave paintings in the prehistory cave settlements at Les Eyzies and Lascaux,and to visit the many other beautiful underground caverns and caves in the region.

Bergerac area is renowned for its wines as is Cahors In the neighbouring Lot department. Both offer wine tastings and vineyard tours.Nearer to home the Domme vineyard is building a sound reputation for the qaulity of its wines

For foodies there is an endless choise of wonderful restaurants offering such regional fare as truffles,foie gras,walnuts,duck,cassoulet,cepes and much more. The whole area is rich in arts and crafts with many interesting galleries and studios. For retail therapy the cities of Bergerac,Brive,Cahors and Perigueux are all easily reached.


The picturesque medieval village of Daglan is 5 away and here you will find the Petit Paris one of the finest gourmet restaurants in the area. The romantic cliff villages of Beynac and La Roque Gageac are within easy reach as is the bastide village of Domme with its wonderful views over the Dordogne.

The historic town of Sarlat with countless restaurants, pavement cafes and colourful street markets is just a ride away and the Sunday street market at St Cyprien takes some beating for sheer vitality. Garden lovers are spoilt for choice,with the fantastic topiary gardens at de Manoir d'Eyrignac,at one end of the scale,to the delightful natural Jardins de Albrede at the other.The garden at Marqueyssac with its breathtaking views of the river and the neighbouring chateaux is candlelit on Thursday evenings - Magical. And then,of course, there is the marvelous river - whether its paddling in the shallows,swimming to the islands,picnics on the banks,boat trips from Beynac or simply drifting down river in a canoe...What else is there? glorious

"Vakantiedroom in de Dordogne"

Begin mei verbleven mijn vrouw en ik twee weken in Maison Mireille. Het werden twee weken om nooit te vergeten, en met tegenzin keerden we terug naar Nederland. We hebben al heel wat vakantiehuizen meegemaakt, maar dit huis was met stip de beste ooit. Het ligt erg landelijk tegen een heuvel op ruim een kilometer van het dorpje Saint Pompon dat in het dal ligt. Een auto is beslist nodig, maar in het dorpje zijn alle benodigdheden zoals brood snel te krijgen. Op (ruim) een half uur rijden vind je een keur aan toeristische uitstapjes. Zowel in het dorpje als in het nabij gelegen Daglan vind je een heerlijk restaurant. Maison Mireille maakt deel uit van een grote eeuwenoude boeren hoeve, zoals er vele in de regio te vinden zijn. In diezelfde hoeve zijn nog twee vakantiegites (kleiner, ieder met één slaapkamer) ingericht en ook de eigenaars, David en Linda, wonen er zelf, samen met hun hond Vasco. Het is een vriendelijk echtpaar dat altijd behulpzaam en geïnteresseerd is, maar zeker niet opdringerig. Van de andere bewoners merk je in de gite overigens niets. Linda en David verwelkomen je door je bij aankomst op te halen in het dorpje en in de gite ligt brood klaar, kaas, wijn en wat al niet. De buitenkant van Maison Mireille was nogal bedekt met een prachtige blauwe regen, maar dat gaf aan de binnenkant een mooi uitzicht en zorgde tegelijkertijd voor beschutting tegen de zon. Wij hadden geluk dat we hem in volle glorie in bloei zagen. De boerenhoeve is aan de buitenkant zo authentiek mogelijk gehouden, maar binnenin is het prachtig en modern ingericht met een luxe die we niet eerder hadden aangetroffen. Twee mooie slaapkamers (groot en echt heel groot!) met ieder een comfortabele en suite badkamer, een goed ingerichte keuken (magnetron, vaatwasser, wasmachine, vierpitkooktoestel), een mooie eettafel, twee heerlijke banken om te kijken naar Engelse TV-zenders, een serre met uitzicht op je eigen afgeschermde zeker 20 meter diepe tuin. De inrichting is echt met zorg in Engelse stijl gedaan met oog voor detail. Onze hond heeft deze twee weken ook geweldig genoten en werd haast vriendjes met Vasco. Hem 's avonds uitlaten vereiste wel een zaklamp want buiten was het echt aardedonker, zo landelijk ligt de boerderij wel. We kwamen er heerlijk tot rust en genoten van alles wat de Dordogne te bieden heeft. Kortom, deze gite is een aanrader. We komen zeker nog een keer terug!

"Lovely, comfortable gite in superb location"

We stayed at Maison Mireille in March/April and couldn't have been happier with our wonderful accommodation. As soon as we walked into the gite we knew we were going to love it. It's light, bright, cosy and comfortable with a lot of thought having been given to the decor and making things nice. Everywhere was spotlessly clean and both bedrooms are great, really comfortable, with lovely en suite bathrooms. The bed was the most comfortable we have ever slept in when away from home. The kitchen is well equipped with everything we could have wanted. The living accommodation is also very comfortable and nicely laid out, very conducive to evenings spent chatting over a glass of wine! David who owns the gite couldn't have been more helpful whilst unobtrusive. He provided helpful information about local markets, restaurants etc. and was happy to make bookings for us. A really nice guy. St. Pompont has an excellent restaurant 'L'envie des Mets'. We went on our last evening and wished we'd gone earlier as it was so good. Daglan (5 mins down the road) also has an excellent restaurant 'Le Petit Paris'. Check out the Decor! Also at Daglan is a very good mini market and also a chef who does take out. We didn't spend much time in the garden as the weather wasn't great but it is well equipped with loungers, table and chairs, parasol and barbecue. We'll get to use them though as we liked it so much we're going back in July! I would highly recommend Maison Mireille anytime of year, not just the usual holiday season. Although the weather wasn't good when we went we were lovely and warm and cosy, if you're looking for comfortable, clean and pleasant accommodation in the Dordogne any time of year, this is for you. Bonnes Vacances!!!!

"A great find"

Lots of places look good on the web sites, but this place has no unpleasant surprises. Great rural setting, but can walk to town; wonderfully updated with all conveniences; plenty of room, great bathrooms. The owners are nearby and very helpful. Perfect place to get-away, or to see all the attractions of the Dordogne. Very good restaurants within short driving distances if one doesn't want to use the fully furnished, modern kitchen. A real find.
