Tilleul is a pretty stone building, originally stables and hayloft but now sympathetically renovated to provide comfortable accommodation for up to 9 (with the addition of an extra single bed or cot on request).
The house is one of 5 gites at 'Le Jardin des Amis' which share a large pool, pool bar and 7 acres of grounds. Our pool bar houses a library of books and games in English for both adults & children. we also have sports equipment including badminton, croquet, cricket, table tennis, a football goal and swings - so there is no need for anybody to be bored! The bar is also a good spot for socialising with other guests or just enjoying some shade from the midday sun. Walk to Meyrals centre with it's boulangerie, charcouterie, restaurants, bar, post office and art galleries.
Out of high season, the house is a good base for exploration: for walkers there is a myriad of well sign-posted routes; history buffs will find the location excellent for visiting the amazing prehistoric sites, caves and castles of the region. For nature lovers, spring is the perfect time to visit, with at least 8 varieties of wild orchid to be found in our meadow alone (the Dordogne has a great concentration of these plants). Red squirrels, various deer and wild boar are all found in the vicinity.
The owners live on site so ensuring that things are always in tip-top condition and are always happy to help with suggestions of routes, places to visit, bookings for restaurants or events etc.
