Beautiful Meydieu

  • 5 of 5

I must admit, many people gave rave reviews about the farmhouse and its wonderful location, but I am going to find it hard to surpass many of them because how can you describe perfection.

Has we drove up the driveway to the farmhouse the hubble bubble of the world was left behind

The tranquil, serenity of the grounds, the peace and quiet, the great views and walks over the neighboring fields

The wild life was great and varied, with regular visitors, even a deer and her youngster on a couple of occasions.

The accommodation was superb, beautifully laid out, a fantastic conversion.

The pool was ideal, with the great weather we had we must have spent 30% of our time in it

Now we come to the only problem of our short but idyllic stay,

WE HAVE TO LEAVE MEYDIEU and return to the outside world, hopefully to return another day

Beautiful,secluded home from home in the French countryside.

  • 4 of 5

Meydieu is an excellent property with every item in the property that you could possibly require and more. It is in a lovely private setting.

Our only problem was that the pool was unusable due to a fault but the owner ensured that he contacted us to apologise and also ensured he sent local friends in the area to explain and assist.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your understanding. I hope the problem with the pool didn't interfere with your holiday too much. Thank you too for leaving Meydieu in such a good state. My wife says the house was spotless.

Stunning private property, in peaceful location with views to die for.

  • 5 of 5

We have travelled through SW France for the last 10-12 years and this is without doubt the best property it has been our pleasure to stay in. Meydieu is spacious,. private and tranquil. It is fully equipped with everything you could think off or possibly need for your holiday. The views from all aspects are picturesque. I write this review grudgingly because I would prefer to keep this place to myself. It was the perfect tonic for my wife and I who enjoyed exploring the surrounding countryside on long walks, always seeming to finish with coffee at the portugese bar in Monbahus before the short walk home. 0r cycling around the Bastide towns in the vicinity while our two adult sons chilled at the pool. For exploring, Bergerac is only 40 mins by car, Bordeaux 11/2 hrs, while locally the Bastide towns of Monflanquin and Villereal are only about 12miles or so and Villeneuve sur Lot 15 miles. We had an excellent holiday doing as much or as little as the notion took us and would love to return sometime in the future for more of the same.

Beautiful property, stunning location and perfect for families.

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a 3 week stay at Meydieu. Having stayed in the areas many times and at some very nice properties previously, this was by far the nicest house for many reasons :-The location was absolutely stunning, quiet but not isolated, the house was very well laid out having 3 en-suite bathrooms and the sitting room, dining areas and kitchen were perfect for a family, ( we were 4 adults and 1 child).

We are very keen home cooks and the kichen was adequately 'stocked', with pots and pans enough to allow us to conjour up' al fresco' suppers each evening, sitting on the terrace, with a superb bottle of White Wine.

Amazing wildlife to see ,both around the house and by the lake - Deer, Hare, Hoopoe and Coypu !!!!

The pool was perfect and a good size. Often pools tend to be a bit on the small side at holiday homes, but this was excellent and was given the thumbs up by our 9 year old who swims for a club squad and carried on with his training of 150 lengths every day !!!

Great villages and towns to vist locally, amazing bakery in Monbahus, fresh bread and croissants every morning and 2 lovely restaurants in Saint Pastour and Lauzan ( both 15 min drive away)

All in All a perfect rental.

Thank You.
