A Holiday Let - Perfect for Couples Looking for a Unique Experience

Looking for a unique place to stay in the Dordogne?

Your French Stay offers a stylish gite with a private pool in a village setting

and an on-site fashion museum

Welcome to Beaux Souvenirs, our Charming Two-Bedroomed gite

Which is adjacent to a traditional 19th-century stone-built coach house. It is a short walk from the centre of Mialet, a pretty village in the middle of the Parc Naturel Regional Perigord-Limousin in the Perigord Vert. This is in the Northern region of the beautiful Dordogne, in southwest France.  

This beautiful gite has its own entrance at the front and French doors at the back. These open onto a shaded terrace in a relaxing garden surrounding a lovely in-ground swimming pool, exclusive to the gite. With a table, seating and a gas barbeque by the private pool, your holiday setting couldn't be more perfect.

The stunning interior

You will be surprised by the amazing blend of vintage and modern inside the gite. After a long day, relax in the large open plan lounge/diner/kitchen whilst watching your favourite shows on a smart TV. 

Upstairs are two gorgeously appointed double bedrooms with super comfortable king-size beds. Downstairs is the superb bathroom with a toilet, twin vanities and a spacious walk-in shower.

Fashion museum

The fashion museum displays part of a collection that took 30 years to build. Jewels from the 20th century will fascinate and entertain you. See examples of famous fashion designers from Jean Patou to Chanel to Biba. And would you believe there is even a stocking worn by Queen Victoria! Fascinating isn't it?

Don't just take our word for it
