An amazing escape in the Dordogne!
What a fantastic week at Villa Magnieu! Conveniently located from the local town Saint-Medard-de-Mussidan, where there are plenty of supermarkets and superb boulangerie (visited daily for the fresh pastries and baguettes).
David and Aasa were excellent hosts, very welcoming and friendly and nothing was too much trouble and made our stay thoroughly enjoyable.
I stayed in the "Big Gite" which was extremely comfortable, spacious and had a very well equipped kitchen as well. One of the best things at Villa Magnieu has to be the swimming pool and the pool area, which was amazing! I spend a good proportion of my week relaxing by the pool.
I will be looking to return in the future and have already recommended to friends and family as well.
Die Villa Magnieu ist ein grosszügiges Anwesen, mit verschiedenen lauschigen Ecken. Die Besitzerfamilie lebt im Herrenhaus und die Gäste verteilen sich auf die zwei Gîtes, welche sowohl als Einheit, als auch separat benutzt werden können.
Die Gîtes wurden mit viel Liebe zum Detail gestaltet und sind eine Wonne fürs Auge. Sie sind sehr sauber und mit allem ausgestattet, was man sich wünschen kann. Alles funktioniert einwandfrei. Die Unterkunft bot unserer Gruppe von 4 Erwachsenen und 4 Teenagern/ Kindern viel Platz.
Der neue Swimmingpool ist ein zusätzliches Highlight - für Kinder und Erwachsene ebenso! Bequemen Liegen und Sessel laden dort zum Verweilen ein.
Vielen Dank für alles, liebe Aasa und David! Ihr seid die perfekten Gastgeber! Ihr habt uns mit vielen kleinen Aufmerksamkeiten verwöhnt und umsorgt. Wir werden noch oft hierher zurückkommen. Die nächsten Ferien in der Villa Magnieu haben wir schon vor unserer Abreise gebucht.
Thanks for your wonderful review. We are very much looking forward to having you back in 2019.
Such an amazing place!
We stayed at Villa Magnieu for a week in June (4 adults and one child).
The setting and location is sublime, an 17th century Manor House with two gites which comfortably accommodated our group.
Both gites are well stocked with everything you could ever need during your stay, so much so it felt a home from home. Sitting on the terrace watching the stunning Dordogne sunsets with a good Bordeaux is the perfect way to end a relaxing day by the pool.
The pool is serene and impeccably kept, with the most comfortable sun loungers ever! It’s great for kids especially as the depth isn’t too deep, and although we had brought our own inflatables, the villa had a few ideally suited for children to play with.
Location wise, it is very close to supermarkets and to the local village. For us the short drive (30mins) from Bergerac airport topped off the holiday as the villa was so convenient to get to.
Aasa and David have created the perfect holiday destination for groups and families. Attention to detail can be found throughout and we cannot wait to book again soon.
Thank you so much for your wonderful hospitality.
Many thanks for your great review. It was wonderful having you to stay and we look forward to having you stay again some time in the not too distant future.
A real haven
Our stay here was, without doubt, one of the most enjoyable breaks we have had. Lovely grounds to relax and unwind in. The accommodation was charming and full of character and the swimming pool was just wonderful to cool down in on the sunny days. David and Aasa were the perfect hosts; helpful, friendly and made us feel at home from the moment we arrived. We weren’t far from some truly beautiful towns and countryside. We will definitely be returning.
.... and it was a pleasure to have you to stay. Hope to see you again in the near future.
The perfect family holiday
They say first impression are important, well if that's true, The Gite at Villa Magnieu was spot on. As we arrived we instantly had a great feeling about this holiday, the main house and gardens are spectacular and the welcome from David and Aasa was warm and friendly.
The gites, that form a separate wing of the main house, are delightful-loads of character, plenty of room, beautifully restored with good facilities. The kids loved the pool and playing in the garden, we loved relaxing and drinking wine!
The area has lots to do, our favourites were the beach at the nearby lake and the Go Ape style centre just outside Mussidan.
Thanks for a fantastic holiday, we will be back.
Many thanks for your review. We wish you a happy new year and hope to see you all again soon.
Absolutely Wonderful Property
We spent a few days here on our French Road Trip this July.
The accommodation is wonderful and the Gites are well appointed and renovated. There is use of a pool and delightful grounds.
The Hosts, David and Aasa, can help with anything you might need or want to know.
The area is really central to many tourist areas and just 1 and a half hours away from the Medieval town of Sarlat.
We will definitely stay here again.
We have a good selection of supermarkets and bakeries within walking distance. We are centrally located for lots of great attractions & family activities. Please visit Villa Magnieu website for more things to do in the area.
