This stone-built ancient village house has great character, part of a peaceful and hugely picturesque small village. The house has been totally restored for the previous French film producer owner, to exacting and high spec standards. A chance to indulge yourself in a sophisticated example of the real France! Furnished with quality, and extensively equipped for your every need. Reputedly the oldest dwelling-house in the village, the 700 year-old history of this amazing 'town house' survivor provides an extraordinary ambiance that fascinates and rewards lovers of history.

Additional benefits.: As locally resident owners, we are pleased to offer you a full and flexible package which you can add on to your reservation according to your personal requirements. This includes a reservation at the local 'auberge' restaurant for your first evening, just a stroll away from the house; route/map from local airports, train stations etc; golf course bookings. The house itself has many additional benefits which come as standard, including UK satellite TV and radio, Hi-Fi, CDs, DVDs, unlimited free wi-fi, free worldwide phonecalls. . . . and - of course - a piano.

Meyrals is an extraordinary, unspoilt medieval village - so perfectly original that it looks almost like a film set! It is ideally located for access to the abundant delights of the Dordogne area, whatever your interests - the dramatic chateaux, limestone riverside cliffhanging villages, prehistoric caves, renaissance towns and historic fortified 'bastides'. The local bar/restaurant is just a stroll from the house (a 3-course meal will cost you about £18!), as is the renowned baker and village shop, and an 'épicerie', and small local producer's market on Thursdays. The quality of the surroundings has also attracted a concentration of professional artists, with their studios and galleries. Meyrals will give you the experience of a real French community - there are only two holiday homes here, and you will not be inundated with tourists and their cameras!
