La Petite Roseraie is an attached gite at Le Bois Vert in the pretty village of Meyrals. It is ideal for couples or solo travellers who want the benefit of a discreet, private gite, but dont want to compromise on quality. There is a new modern fitted kitchen with a cooker, refridgerator and a dining area with table and chairs for two. Glazed doors lead into the lounge which is comfortable and equipped with a woodburner for colder months (all fuel supplied in the price). There is a flatscreen tv with UK or French channels and a dvd player. Patio doors lead to a private garden with small paved area. There is a small outside set of table and chairs for dining al fresco and some garden furniture. The path leads through privacy gates to the terrace and pool. In the garden we have a fig tree and tomato plants which you may use during your stay.

There is a large shower room downstairs and a small loo upstairs, next to the bedroom. The bedroom has a garden view, and is furnished with an Antique French double bed (with a microfibre King size duvet, side tables and a wardrobe. The bed has quality bedlinen and we provide towels and pool towels for your use.

Outside you may park your car next to the gite, there is a charcoal BBQ for you to use if you wish. The gite is self catering, but we supply essentials such a salt & pepper, 2 toilet rolls, bin bags, washing up liquid etc. In colder months we supply logs for the woodburner. There is also electric underfloor heating which automatically triggers when the temperature drops below 20.

If you wish to rent the gite and would like either some pre-arrival groceries or to have flowers or champagne for a special occasion, please just ASK us to arrange this.

On site we also have a larger family gite (Gite Le Bois Vert) which sleeps 4. Both gites share the main gardens and the pool, so the maximum amount of people at any time will always be 6. Both gites have a strict no smoking/vaping and no pet policy.

From October and up till April the gite is heated by underfloor heating (ground floor only), and gite guests can also use the woodburner to create a special romantic atmosphere and added heat. All wood is included in the cost.

The Owner Recommends

La Merenda bar and restaurant

Situated in the heart of Meyrals village there is a small rustic bar underneath (great to sit outside on a sunny evening) and a lovely traditional restaurant upstairs serving good food lunchtimes and evenings (except Sunday). The owners speak excellent English.

Sarlat market

Sarlat has a fabulous market on a Wednesday and Saturday in the centre of the medieval part of the town. Give yourself at least two hours to wander round and buy local food and drink specialities, and enjoy sightseeing in this special place. There are countless restaurants in the area.

Lascaux IV caves, Montignac

The very newest of the centres is Lascaux IV and you can book online (specify an English language tour if you need) or in person. Montignac is just a 20 minute drive from the gite, and is a lovely village to visit, with a few restaurants, cafes and bars. The Lascaux complex is walking distance from the village but there is a large car park. Give yourself at least 3 hours for the tour.

Beynac village & chateaux

Beynac is a short drive from the gite and has a lower car park (next to the river) and another half way up the cobbled hill. Beynac village is steep but worth exploring and at the top of the hill the chateaux is worth visiting and has incredible views down the Dordogne river. There are a couple of restaurants and a great bar at the bottom of the hill to sit and watch the world go by. VERY busy in the summer months.

Grotte de Rouffignac

My favourite authentic cave visit! Rouffignac is about 40 minutes drive, but well worth it.
The visit is about an hour and a half long and a small electric train takes you 6 km underground, through an elaborate cave system to view authentic cave drawings of bison, deer and horses.
Great visit for the not so mobile (because of the little train), but DO take a jumper or jacket as its very chilly underground. Great low price for a great experience.

Chateaux Milandes

This beautiful chateaux was once owned by Josephine Baker, the American singer/dancer. There are lovely gardens, a fantastic bird of prey display and the chateaux is a monument to the colourful life of Miss Baker and the part she played in the French resistance.
Cafe, toilets and lots of parking.
