About the Owner/Advertiser, Mr John Smith

.

Year property purchased 2003
Why this location? The house is secluded, yet quite close to the village. The area is quiet with little traffic, but there are plenty of lovely places to visit nearby.
Unique benefits of property Meydieu is our home from home. We spend about three months a year living at Meydieu, so we make sure the house has everything needed for a comfortable stay. It's a great place to chill out with nobody around to bother you.

The Owner Recommends

Lac de Lougratte

The beach at Lac de Lougratte is about 8km away and is open from the middle of June until the end of August. The water is safe for swimming and there is a lifeguard in attendance. Activities include paddle boats and a playground. There is also a snack bar and picnic area.

Canoeing

The closest canoeing is at Casseneuil on the river Lot. Canoes can also be hired at Puy L'Evêque.
The are a number of places a little further afield on the Dordogne too.

Vineyard

There are a number of well known vineyards around Bergerac and Duras, but one of our favourites is the little know producer Le domaine Lou Gaillot at Casseneuil. The walk round the vineyard is especially interesting for children as there are notice boards around the vineyard explaining the process. It only takes about half an hour, and of course you are welcome to taste and buy wine. I particularly like their white wine "Elegance" http://lougaillot.com/

Return to Meydieu August 2018

We were one of the first visitors to Meydieu when it first came available to rent. Usually in September when the summer heat had subsided and our grown up family and partners all came to stay and we had a great time. Marvellous place to stay super bedrooms and dinning area, five minutes to the village for bread in the morning. Golf course just up the road. After our first few years they installed a swimming pool which in the heat of the season would be great. We had 5 or six good years at Meydieu. Then it stopped. Grandchildren were born it wasn't so easy for us all to get away together. So when returning with Grandchildren this year in August (School hols) after 5 years away we wondered how we would find the place and how we would get on. No need to have worried the place was just as great as we remembered, the kids loved the pool and we all had a brilliant holiday.

Brilliant in all aspects, simple as that. We had a lovely holiday and were not let down in any way, the only down side was that we had to leave and go home.
Thank you for letting us stay.

We spent 2 weeks this summer at Meydieu with our 2 children and we all had a lovely holiday, the house and grounds are very beautiful and the pool was an ideal size, we used it nearly every day due to the amazing hot weather. We were very impressed by how clean and well equipped the house was, it had everything we needed and more. The house is very private and extremely peaceful due to its location and there are lots of places to visit that aren't too far away by car. On the days we stayed in as well as using the pool we spent some time fishing in the lake that's on the property, my sons loved this as it was there first time fishing and they caught 4 fish! We found the home owner extremely helpful, he was always on hand via email if we needed anything or any advice about places to visit. All in all we had a great holiday and we would definatly love to stay at Meydieu again in the future.
