We have five separate gites and two studios at Le Jardin des Amis and and we can accommodate up to 30 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 studios. For families we have cots & highchairs available: please ask when booking. Our studios have been designed for short stays or ‘couples’ holidays and we are flexible on changeover days, even in high season!
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. New in 2022 : steps to enter the swimming-pool instead of ladder.
BBQ area and Pizza oven
Our newly renovated outside bar provides an environment where guests can socialise with a drink and make friends after a day out and about in the glorious Dordogne. The barbecue area with pizza oven is available if you wish to share a meal with old (or new) friends in the vicinity of the pool. In the bar you can find a stove, gas oven and microwave, fridge, refrigerator, chairs and tables. It’s perfectly equipped for preparing lunches outside on sunny days. There are also books and games for more entertainment.
Children play area: Trampoline, swings & slide, small soccer goal, sandbox, basketball hoop, and board games
For the energetic we have a range of sports equipment: badminton net and racquets, boules, croquet set, a full size outdoor table tennis table and bats
There are a number of enjoyable circular walks to be followed from the cottages
Large green areas among fruit trees with Pique nique tables to enjoy the natural beauty of the place
Vegetable Shop & Breakfast
Breakfast is available on request the day before, certain days of the week. Price 10,50€. Please enquire on arrival. All vegetables sold on the premises are grown in our own garden.
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 the entrances and they are wide enough to comfortably accommodate a wheelchair. We are happy to discuss your particular requirements to ensure suitability.
Winter Lets (Short Stays)
Some of our holiday cottages are suitable for longer rental, off season, 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.
