It is ideally located in the heart of Périgord. Inside, it has been completely renovated combining charm and comfort. The property consists of a main building with 3 bedrooms, a dining room, a lounge with fireplace, a desk, a modern kitchen, and a bathroom. There is also an annexe with a living room, a large bedroom, a bathroom, and a toilet. It is on the top of a calm and isolated hill. Tranquillity and rest are guaranteed. The property is located on a 3000-sq.m park with an unobstructed view of the grassland and the woods.

You can also visit the wine-producing properties and the markets with mushrooms, foie gras, and truffles. The holidaymakers that visit Le Meynicot come looking for the calm and quality of life it offers. Ideal for 2 families with children, the dependency offers certain privacy, and the gated pool, as well as the complete absence of cars, makes the place safe for children of all ages. Adolescents will not get bored with the heated pool, the Ping-Pong table, or the badminton court. Adults will definitely enjoy the boules court, lit up at night, or the siestas in the hammock under the shade of a large oak tree. There are many possibilities to hike in the forest, starting from the house. For those who love mountain biking, there are many waymarked paths, and those who love cycling will find many quiet, but hilly routes starting from Le Meynicot. We will be in charge of welcoming our holidaymakers to make them know our place and give them advice about cultural activities, leisure activities, and the gastronomy of our region.

Superb villa with ideal pool

  • 5 of 5

We have just finished our two week holiday and it couldn't have been better. The villa was lovely with everything we wanted and the pool was just what we needed as we had superb weather.

Paul the owner, couldn't have been nicer and luckily his English was so much better than our French lol. He gave us his mobile number in case we needed it, which we did when a short thunder storm knocked the electric out - we sent a text and Paul was at the villa almost immediately to fix it. He also sourced the most amazing local strawberries - if you stay you should ask him to do the same as they are delicious!

I would definitely recommend this villa without any hesitation and we hope to be back next year x

Fantastic house with great facilties in a peaceful setting. We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

The property has excellent facilties including a wonderful pool positioned to get the sun well into the evening. Loads of space and perfect for two families. It is close to local attractions and historical sites around the Perigord and Dordogne region but also includes swings, boules court and table tennis as well as a brick BBQ perfect for alfresco dining! The pool is clean and safe our 3 year old girl loved it! The owners are warm and welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. Highly recommend and we will definitely be back!

Très bon séjour

  • 5 of 5

Très bel endroit, calme, la grange rénovée en charmante dépendance idéale pour les ados, beau cachet de la maison, confort, charme, balade, sport sont au RV le tout couronné par une piscine à 28°c. Bref de vraies vacances pour toute la famille !

Parfait !

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons séjourné à 4 couples et 1 bébé. Nous avons passé 1 semaine dans des conditions idéales : repos, détente et jeux.

La demeure est grande, bien équipée, propre ! On s'y sent bien, tout de suite.

La dépendance est un vrai plus pour un couple avec un bébé.

Un petit bémol : la 4eme chambre, mansardée, n'est pas très pratique pour des adultes.

L'environnement de la maison est magnifique, très bien entretenu.

La piscine, le terrain de pétanque, le barbecue, le hamac, la petite terrasse : tout était réuni pour y passer une semaine de rêve entre amis.

Tout était parfait. Merci pour la souplesse du propriétaire pour notre arrivée et pour l'accueil de sa fille...

Nous espérons bien y retourner !

La maison de vacances idéale

  • 5 of 5

Nous venons de passer trois semaines de vacances très agréables dans cette maison.

En résumé, Le Meynicot est la maison de vacances idéale.

Elle est au grand calme au bout d’une petite route blanche qui ne va pas plus loin, les seuls voisins sont une autre maison un peu plus bas sur la route d’accès (mais invisible depuis toutes les zones de vie du Meynicot), et les vaches et veaux dans la prairie en contrebas. Le silence qui l’entoure est vraiment appréciable.

A l’extérieur, un terrain avec une belle pelouse et des grands arbres, piscine au sel chauffée 8 x 4 m, dont nous avons bien profité même les jours où le soleil se cachait un peu, terrain de pétanque, hamac. La piscine est très proche de la maison et de sa terrasse. 4 chaises longues et 4 transats et deux grands parasols.

A l’intérieur, la maison est bien fraiche en été (sauf peut-être la chambre du haut dans la dépendance), la cuisine pratique à côté du séjour et de la terrasse.

Un soir de pluie nous avons fait un feu dans la cheminée qui marche très bien.

Le propriétaire Paul Carlier habite à quelques kilomètres et répond dans la journée à toute demande (il est venu sans problème deux fois les deux premiers jours pour des petits réglages).

Notre fille de 9 ans et sa cousine étaient super heureuses dans la chambre mansardée du hait, sans compter toute la collection de Playmobil disponibles. Elles ont aussi apprécié le portique et bien sur la piscine. Et pouvoir courir pieds nus dans le jardin en toute sécurité.

Au maximum nous avons été 6 adultes et deux enfants et tout le monde était très bien installé.

Peut-être reviendrons nous l’année prochaine !!
