Welcome to Gite le Bois Vert.
Le Bois Vert is a two bedroomed self-catering gite, which can sleep five people (4 & baby) with private swimming pool located at the edge of the picturesque village of Meyrals, in the heart of the Perigord and close to all the main visitor sites in the Vezere Valley and Dordogne Valley. Located in the heart of the Dordogne, in South West France, we are an easy 45 minute drive from Bergerac Airport (54km). Other airports nearby are Brive (54km) and Limoges (167km). As we are located in the comfortable south West of France, the climate is almost Mediterranean with warm, sunny springs and autumns, and a glorious warm or hot summer.
The gite is Planet Friendly – we recycle water and waste where possible; and as the gite is well insulated, electric heating is not available during the summer months unless you specifically request it (Please see our T&C’s about billing for excessive electrical use). The woodburner is available for use on cool evenings at the start and end of season. We do offer free wifi for surfing the web and keeping in touch with friends and family, but please do not use this service for business use or excessive downloads. Please also note that this is rural France and satellite signal and internet are often interrupted due to weather conditions.
A short stroll into the centre of the village and you can discover a boulangerie, an excellent bar and restaurant, new auberge opening in summer 2018, and many artists galleries. In the summer there is a weekly market in the village, located outside the church.
Using the gite as a base you may choose many activities nearby, such as canoeing on the River Vezere, horseriding, cycling, climbing & caving or walking or visit the many prehistoric sites including the new Lascaux IV complex at Montignac. The medieval town of Sarlat with its famous market is a short drive away, and there are chateaux and gardens in abundance to entertain and please you.
Your French holiday is important to us and we ensure that comfort, cleanliness and safety are all taken care of so that you and your family can come and relax and enjoy yourselves here. The gite is available to let for up to four people (five including a baby) from May through till the end of September. Please check our availability & prices and book on our bookings page. We often have special deals available outwith the main season, and are happy to welcome house-hunters on short breaks out of season. Visit our blog page or Facebook page for details of offers.

We spent a week at the lovely Bois Vert in early September 2017. We found it a very spacious, clean and modern gite in wonderful surroundings. A decent, comfy bed and pillows. There is a well-maintained pool situated in pleasant gardens. It’s just a short walk into the nearby village of Meyrals where we found a great restaurant called La Merenda, ideal for pizzas. We found Bois Vert a perfect base for exploring the surrounding area. The owners, Lorraine and John, suggested several interesting places to visit as there is something for everyone whether you like the countryside, historic places or relaxing in cafes. There was only two of us in the gite but it has enough space for a family. I would be happy to return. Chrissie
We had the most wonderful stay at Le Bois Vert, Lorraine and John were so welcoming and made our stay really special. The location is really fabulous, with amazing sites and places to explore in every direction. Lorraine and John were very helpful in providing suggestions and tips for what best to see and do during our short stay. The accommodation was immaculate and had everything we needed, including a highchair and real cot (not a travel cot) for our youngest, washing machine, bath, comfortable beds, a pool and heaps of space for our four year old to run and explore. Lorraine and John also provided a welcoming gift of wine, beer and breakfast for our first morning (including milk, tea, coffee, croissants, bread and jam). We stayed four nights but could easily had stayed two weeks or more, it was so relaxing and such a gorgeous spot to stay.
The perfect stay Trip Advisor Left on Jun 20, 2018 for a stay in Jun 2018Having just returned from a week at Gite le Bois Vert, I cannot recommend it enough. Situated in the beautiful village of Meyrals, it is in the perfect location to easily explore many other towns close-by. The gite offers everything you need, from cleanliness, comfortable beds and pastries for your first morning, to a nice pool and large garden. Lorraine and John were great hosts, and were extremely knowledgeable on different places to visit, and activities to do to fill our week. Throughout the week they were extremely friendly and made sure everything was okay with us when we saw them. I look forward to returning to Gite le Bois Vert to continue exploring the gorgeous area which surrounds it. Louise K
A little gem set in a quaint village, set in the beauty of the French countryside. I can’t recommend it enough. So peaceful yet perfectly placed to access many areas of interest. Our hosts Lorraine and John were really helpful, respectful and knowledgeable. We were sorry to leave this little bit of paradise.
