For your holiday here in the Dordogne, we invite you to stay in our stylish, modern apartment in a delightful woodland setting, well suited for two people.
With so much to see and do locally La Petite Borie is a wonderful escape to the countryside where you can enjoy the privacy of this quiet location with its relaxing, tranquil atmosphere. Our guests have said 'its like being in the middle of nowhere, yet right in the middle of everything the Dordogne has to offer'.
La Petite Borie is situated in the charming little hamlet of La Jaubertie, 2 kilometres from the artist village of Meyrals, with its quaint artist studios and its annual scarecrow festival. Here you have a choice of two restaurants, an Auberge and our local bar/restaurant, a Boulangerie for your daily bread and croissants along with a post office.
Approached via your own private drive, you arrive at the apartment and its secluded terrace.
The extensive outside space has comfortable patio furniture and two sun loungers should you wish to relax in the shade of the oak trees.
You have your own garden area and barbecue for al fresco dining, a truly romantic place. The old stone shepherds shelter in the garden is an historical feature in this part of France known as a ‘Borie’ from which the apartment takes its name.
From the terrace you enter the apartment through double doors leading into the spacious main living space - an L shaped open-plan living/dining/kitchen area arranged on a single level. The apartment is comfortably furnished with all the facilities you will require to enjoy your stay. These include a Laura Ashley sofa-bed, coffee table, dining table and chairs. Smart TV, providing all UK Freesat channels, Netflix, radio and music channels. In addition there is a Blue Ray DVD player and JCB speaker that you can plug in your smart phone.
The modern kitchen provides cooking facilities, including oven, induction hob, fridge and dishwasher. Toaster, coffee maker, kettle and ample chinaware and cutlery. There is also a washing machine.
Leading off the main living space is the bedroom. Furnished with a King sized bed and two chest of drawers. This is a delightful room with a view through the woodland where the early sun penetrates through your window.
The shower room is equipped with walk in rain shower, WC, washbasin and heated towel rail.
Whilst La Petite Borie does form part of the owner’s main house, we have ensured your total privacy into and around the apartment.
The south facing 10m x 5m swimming pool including a large terrace area is close to the apartment and is shared with the owners. This is fully equipped with sun loungers and parasols for sunbathing during the hot summer months. The pool is unheated and open for the months of June through to September, possibly October should we have continued warmth and sunshine.
Our rental prices include towels (excluding pool towels) and linen.
The property is cleaned at change over and linen/towels renewed.
