About the property

Gîte nestled in an idyllic setting, relax and unwind in the splendid countryside

Stylish, spacious gîte accommodation in the Dordogne countryside with shared pool near Nontron

Verdant views over the Dordogne countryside surround L'arbre Magnolia.

L'arbre Magnolia is a restful retreat from the everyday, offering privacy and tranquility for that perfect get-away-from-it-all holiday.

Ideally situated for exploring the whole Dordogne area and all it has to offer and for walking, cycling, riding in the peaceful and tranquil surrounding countryside. The moment you walk out the door you can begin a walk through the beautiful hilly landscape. We are popular with ramblers, cyclists, wine-tasters, walkers/hikers, bird-watchers and lovers of the natural world. All walks/bike rides are clearly signed and maps are available in your gîte

L'arbre Magnolia is a restful retreat from the everyday, offering a well equipped and tastefully decorated gite in a 18th Century building.

Completely renovated to an exceedingly high standard, the gite has spacious rooms, and plenty of modern amenities to enhance your stay, with everything you would expect to find in your own home. The gîte is decorated to a high standard with homely touches and quality fixtures and fittings.

Our child friendly gite is ideal for families, with facilities onsite to amuse children of all ages. There is so much land for children to run around freely - 4 acres and everyone to find their own private space to relax and unwind.

L'arbre Magnolia is furnished in a relaxed style, with the interior of a modern decoration and has 2 floors. The ground floor has a well equipped kitchen, with fitted units, granite worktops, a fitted refrigerator, oven, hob, dishwasher and toaster. The kitchen, the ideal place to make use of your cooking talents with fresh products found in local markets. The dining area has an attractive solid oak table with eight chairs and is a good focal point for your group to get together over dinner and a glass of wine. The dining room has a wood burner.

Leading off the hall is a twin room with fitted wardrobe and views of the garden. Opposite this room there is a WC with wash basin and fitted shower.

A wooden spiral staircase leads upstairs to a large comfortably furnished, spacious living room, with large settees, yew wood furniture, to create a relaxing living area and a log burning fire and traditional oak beam features. There is satellite TV (English and French channels) One of the settees converts into a double bed. This level also houses two more large bedrooms, one is a spacious master bedroom with large en-suite. The master bedroom is beautiful and spacious and offers a soothing and quiet atmosphere. Beds are made up upon your arrival, you just have to unpack your suitcases! From the master bedroom, you can step directly onto your balcony through the patio doors to enjoy the view. There is wooden garden furniture and a parasol where you can take your morning coffee overlooking the countryside or dine 'al fresco'. In the evening you can do a bit of stargazing because on a clear night, every star in the milky way comes out.

The pool, (open end May - end Sept) shared with La Maison de Rebeyrat is situated to the rear of the buildings in a secluded private sun trap. It has a lovely open aspect with a view of the local wooded area. The pool has easy access by steps, has loungers and parasols for your comfort, pool-side lights and under-water illumination. With it's south facing terrace it is perfect for lounging on hot summer afternoons. The pool is cleaned and maintained on a daily basis, and is fully compliant with French law, including a safety alarm which has a code.

The rear enclosed garden, shared by both gites, has a gas bbq, where you can enjoy some outdoor dining using the table and chairs provided. There is also a ping pong table, pool table, netball posts etc. We can provide toys/games, and books from the library.

Get together with your family to a breathtaking oasis of calm and comfort and forget the stress of everyday life. These gîtes are ideal for groups of families or friends wanting to holiday together as the 2 independent gites can be rented together allowing you to maintain your privacy and still enjoy each other’s company whilst on holiday.

The whole experience will provide fond memories that will last long after the holiday is over.

This is true rural France, the pace of life is slow and conversation and gastronomy go hand in hand. Take your time purchasing local produce at one of the local markets and then linger over a relaxing meal in the evening.

You will be welcomed on arrival by the owners.

Ren and Mairi live on site but they will ensure that your privacy is guaranteed. However, we will be on hand, if required, to answer any questions, give you advice and recommendations about local activities and attractions, make reservations for you, and help to make your stay as relaxing as possible and memorable. The gîte is provided with an information pack in which, as well as describing life in the areas, we have gathered information about the local attractions, markets and recommended restaurants.
