About the gîte

Gîte Le Bois Vert is set in the idyllic ‘Golden Triangle’ between Les Eyzies, Sarlat and Montignac and offers fantastic 2 bedroom (sleeps 5 including baby in a cot) accommodation with a beautiful private salt water pool just a 2 minute walk from the centre of the artist village of Meyrals.  Set in beautiful natural countryside of South West France with fields and streams bordered by towering limestone cliffs full of prehistoric caves, there are numerous activities to be enjoyed in the area.  There is a lovely rustic French bar and restaurant serving good traditional French food and pizza in the centre of the village, a new auberge opening summer 2018 and other fantastic restaurants nearby.

Set in its own pretty grounds, the situation is quiet and peaceful, but not isolated, with private parking outside the gite.  The accommodation is light and airy and all located on the ground floor, so ideal for families and guests with accessibility issues.  With wide doorways and no steps within the Gite Le Bois Vert, we have tried to make the gite easier for those with reduced mobility.  Outside there is a small orchard and grassed area for children to play.  Large level lawns and stone terracing surround the private swimming pool, which is totally YOURS for the duration of your stay!  We have provided a BBQ and outdoor tables, chairs, sun loungers and sun parasols in both the sun terrace and under the oak tree if you need to seek a little shade in summer.  As we are located just outside the village we often see deer, woodpeckers and hoopoe in the garden.

Sun terrace

Sun Terrace


The gîte has full electric underfloor heating and is fully double glazed.  The living area has a woodburner for off season and French doors leading to the sun terrace.  There is a cabinet with a variety of English language books and lots of tourist information and maps for you to use, and a TV (very basic UK channels only) and DVD.  Free wifi is provided (please see our terms & conditions for details).  For the comfort of all our guests the gite and grounds are non smoking areas.  We never allow pets into the gite, as many guests have allergies.

The bathroom is fully tiled with a bath and a shower over, a heated towel rail, WC and a wash hand basin with storage underneath and large well-lit vanity mirror above.  There is plenty of hot water available at all times.



The pool is open from 1st May until end of September, and has a security cover which is put in place at dusk and removed at 8am.  It’s a salt pool and unheated, but this warms with the sun throughout the summer and is pleasant and refreshing.   The pool is for the private use of guests booking Gite Le Bois Vert.  There are graduated steps into the pool at the shallow end, especially for families.  Plastic tumblers are provided for you to take drinks to the pool area.  The gîte and garden are smoke free areas, and we would ask that you respect our neighbours privacy by keeping the noise down after 10pm.  Please supervise all children in the pool and in the garden area.  There are plenty of sun loungers, umbrellas and chairs and tables, and we provide a barbeque for your use.
