About Persehais Jean-Louis
Married, 3 children, in my sixties, retired from Civil Aviation Control, living there since 1970. I built this home myself on a family plot in 1989. D.I.Y man, amateur musician and photographer, traveller, reading lover, sociable and helpful, bon viveur and non-smoker. We like our region that we know well, and we can help you to discover it in the best conditions. Hope to see you soon...
Persehais Jean-Louis purchased this House in 1989
Why Persehais Jean-Louis chose Bergerac
This house is not a soulless holidays rental, but our home that we let for rent between June and September and in which we live the rest of the time. We are in the heart of a region full of history and prehistory and plenty of things to see, prehistoric caves or with concretions, feudal castles, dream gardens, walking in nice villages, "gabares" on Dordogne or Vézère rivers, in addition to many other more traditional hobbies (golf, riding, tennis, kayaking...). It is also a world famous region of gastronomy and wines. People are friendly and the air is pure, far from the industrial, urban and agricultural pollution. But you can also choose idleness and relaxation, outside dining two steps away from the pool, swim in its warm water (around 30 °) in the gentle warmth of the shelter, at any time and any weather ... In short, cultural enrichment, breath of fresh air, relaxation and rest garanteed.
What makes this House unique
Space is a luxury, and here it is everywhere present. The vast wooded and mowed ground (25000m ²), allows nice walking around or let the children gambol without fears. The absence of direct vis-à-vis gives you a total tranquility and privacy. The large swimming pool and its large tiled beaches are of real comfort and can be appreciated at any time (illuminated at night), in the open air with the shelter open (it is motorized, no effort to make), or with the shelter on to enjoy a soft warmth, without wind, without insects, even in rainy wheather, and also protected from UV rays... This shelter can be locked for a total security in case of young children not knowing how to swim. The water is heated by heat pump every day and its temperature is guaranteed above 28 ° (and more often above 30 °) from the beginning of June to the end of September. You can lounge for hours without becoming cold blue. And of course it is possible to bathe in complete privacy, out of view... The house is very clear, tiled, very well equipped and comfortable, largely open to the outside. All the windows overlook a preserved and flowered nature. It will be delivered in perfect condition of maintenance and cleanliness, furnished with taste, decorated without ostentation, at least we think. Finally, in this rural countryside with dispersed habitat, calm and tranquility will be at the rendezvous.

Lovely villa and lovely people, would recommend!
Fantastic villa in a great location close to Bergerac, fabulous pool and play areas for the children.
Villa has everything you need and owners are very friendly and helpful, we had a wonderful holiday. Thank you.
A lovely peaceful villa with beautiful surroundings
We had a wonderful time in Villa Melhenga. The hosts Jean-Louis and Anne-Marie were so helpful and friendly and nothing was too much trouble.
Our boys aged 4 and 6 had a wonderful time playing in the grounds around the villa. They especially loved the zip wire and climbing in the tower playing knights!
The pool was fantastic with lots of inflatables and it was great to have the removable cover which gave peace of mind in the evening.
The town of Bergerac was very close by with a lovely market on Wednesday and lots of great places to eat and drink.
We would highly recommend staying here!
Hello! Thanks for your so kind review. And you're right, our pool is a real magnet for children, but once the shelter is on and closed, you can let them play around without fearing a drama.
If you travel again in our region one day, just pop at home (or caravan), we'll be glad to meet you again. Kindest regards.
Jean-Louis and Anne-Marie.
You Must Stay Here
A fabulous time was had by a wide range of ages. The house was extremely comfortable and the owners really made it feel like it was 'ours' for the time we were there. There were many thoughtful touches which we all really appreciated and nothing was too much trouble. The grounds of the house are beautiful and a paradise for nature lovers. The pool was very well used and maintained a lovely temperature for even the smallest swimmers. Th badminton and table tennis were also a great hit as were all of the other outside activities provided. However, there was also plenty of opportunity to be quiet, listen to the bird song, watch the squirrels and appreciate the beautiful sunsets. This was a great place to spend a holiday. Everyone was catered for and we would love to go back again soon.
Hi Neil and family... Glad you had "some" sunsets, because the weather wasn't often as sunny as expected... We all know that it's a lotery on which you can't act... But that's when you apreciate a covered and really heated pool...
Just on time for some cherries directly from the tree, before black birds (Hi Jacob, great Beatle song on your guitar!) eat them all.
We both hope to see you all again one day...
Jean-Louis and Anne-Marie.
PS : and thanks for your so kind attentions...
Relaxing stay in wonderful villa with lovely heated pool
Peaceful relaxing two weeks at this lovely villa,set in the peaceful countryside not far from Bergerac. We were warmly greeted by Jean- Louis and his wife, who took the trouble to talk us through the do's and don'ts of the property and then left us discreetly to ourselves; they also provided us with a lovely welcome basket of wines, etc. The pool is fantastic and when our daughter and son in law joined us for the second week, he was in it at every opportunity; brilliant idea having the cover set up so you could have it out in the open when the sun shone or covered if it rained or was cool. The wildlife is amazing, roe deer, red squirrels, every kind of tit imaginable, jays and so much more - the tits and squirrels are of course encouraged by the food put out for them. Do eat at Jean-Louis favourite Restuarant Le Grappe D'or - fantastic Sunday lunch.
Hello, you've been our latest guests of this season (2017), during the 2 first weeks of September. Days are a bit less sunny, some were rainy, and the nights are getting a bit colder. But as you say, the pool is still at more than 28° (mostly around 30°), and with its shelter, very pleasant to use at any time. We are now back in our home , too late for the pool, but tits, squirrels and roe deers are still there... And we are ready to welcome our future guests in 2018. And at this time, 4 of them have already booked... We were glad to meet you. Warm regards... Jean-Louis and Anne-Marie.
Five star holiday home.
Wonderful.What can we say, house great , pool amazing , owners so welcoming and kind . We had a really good holiday.
Kitchen very well equipped, bedrooms and bathrooms comfortable. Outside space extensive, lots of activities in addition to the pool.,lots and lots to do. Television and WIFI worked really well.
Location very handy for local airport , shopping ,sightseeing etc.
Hello, it was very nice to have you home... And we are glad you felt "at home". You've chosen to travel by plane and rent a car, which seems to be the most comfortable and perhaps one of the cheapest way to come to us from UK. And the airport is only about 15 minutes from home by the ring road. Our door will always be open if you come back one day to Bergerac. Warm regards. Jean-Louis and Anne-Marie.
Really ejoyable holiday for adults and kids
On our arrival at Bergerac Airport, Jean-Louis and Anne-Marie (property owners), were on hand to meet and greet us, and from then on, could not do enough to make our stay as enjoyable as possible at Villa Melhenga, even ferrying us back to the Airport on our departure day. The accommodation suited our needs perfectly (4 adults & 4 children) and was spotless and well maintained. The villa is located in beautiful countryside with marvellous views of the surrounding areas. The children loved it, the heated swimming pool and the "adventure" play area were particular favourites and the variety of games that were provided ensured that there was no chance of boredom creeping in; they really enjoyed their stay and would certainly want to return.
Jean-Louis and Anne-Marie were ever so helpful. We had not hired any transport preferring instead to use taxis when required. However, Anne-Marie insisted on ferrying the girls to the local supermarket on our day of arrival and Jean-Louis insisting on taking the family to and from Bergerac for our planned sight seeing trip. The pictures of the villa do not do it justice and anyone booking a holiday at Villa Melhenga will not be disappointed and all due credit to Jean-Louis and Anne-Marie for providing us with a thoroughly enjoyable holiday.
Mr & Mrs Longstaff & Family May/June 2017
Hi Bill and family, we were very happy to receive you all at Villa Melhenga. And of course the four kids (3 years old for our little sweety, 9 for the elder) were more than welcome (and as you did, we'll keep secret the little surprise reserved for wise children...). For sure, our countryside is pleasant, but as you've seen, there is no public transport nearby, and taxis are not a suitable solution, even if you don't plan to visit a lot. That's why we recommend renting a car if you travel by air (11 UK airports serve Bergerac : Birmingham, Bristol, East Midlands, Edimbourg, Exeter, Leeds Bradford, Liverpool, London City, London Stansted, Manchester and Southampton, in addition to Bruxelles-Charleroi and Rotterdam...). But the most important thing is that you enjoyed your holiday, and this is our best reward.
Hope to see you again one day... Warm regards. Jean-Louis and Anne-Marie.
