.... but don't just take our word for it. Some of the feedback left on various on-line review sites:
...Third stay & as good as ever - Maria H, UK (Aug 2022)
We have returned from our 3rd visit to Villa Magnieu and it was as wonderful as each of our previous visits. The gîtes are set up to make any stay extremely comfortable and the hosts are so helpful & friendly to ensure you have a wonderful holiday. Mussidan is a great spot to explore the southern Dordogne with extremely good road links to Bergerac, Perigueux and Bordeaux. We spent most of our week relaxing by the pool, it’s an extremely safe environment for young children and so many things to entertain them within the grounds. We certainly hope this won’t be our last visit. Thank you again for a brilliant stay!
... A slice of heaven! - Richard B, USA (Jul 2022)
Villa Magnieu is a true gem situated in the beautiful Dordogne countryside. Close enough to all of the major attractions, but with enough solitude to allow you to completely unwind and relax. The pool area is fantastic with a wonderful rustic, charming feel that helped us 'chill out' after a day of visiting nearby St. Emilion or Perigueux. We even had an outdoor family 'movie night', which our kids loved. Perfect for either families or just adults, we thoroughly recommend this location and the owners Aasa and David were extremely attentive and welcoming.
... Fabulous gîte and hosts - Joanne B, UK (Jun 2022)
We have just returned from our lovely holiday in Mussidan and what a great time we have had staying at Villa Magnieu. Aasa, David & Louis were perfect hosts and the gîte was in beautiful condition with everything you could possibly need there. The little touches were also so lovely, the fresh eggs left on the doorstep from the chickens who roam around in the lovely grounds and the fresh home grown tomatoes. Also the wonderful honey we had from the bees that are also on the grounds. Aasa, while conscious about our privacy was there if we needed anything and checked on us throughout the holiday to make sure we were ok.
... Un havre de paix ! - Julie J, FR (Aug 2021)
Nous avons passé un séjour absolument parfait chez Aasa et David qui sont des hôtes des plus généreux, sympathiques et sérieux. La maison, le parc, la piscine sont sublimes et parfaitement entretenus. Tout a été pensé, équipé et rénové avec beaucoup de goût, de respect de l’environnement et dans l’optique de faire plaisir aux clients. Nous avons été plus qu’agréablement surpris à tous les titres, la réalité dépasse largement l’annonce qui nous faisait déjà rêver ! Nous reviendrons avec un immense plaisir et recommandons la villa Magnieu les yeux fermés pour un séjour entre amis ou en famille !
... Un séjour exceptionnel - Sabrina M, FR (Aug 2021)
A peine arrivés, nous étions conquis par les lieux. Un accueil charmant des propriétaires, attentionnés mais qui savent aussi se faire discrets. Le jardin est fantastique, tant la piscine que les espaces verts qui sont bien entretenus. De nombreuses activités sont mises à disposition pour les petits comme les grands...
... Utmärkt - Anna N, SW (Aug 2020) 
Fantastiskt ställe med mycket utrymme, helt idyllisk gård med fina växter och blommor. Perfekt med plats att njuta i solen och vid poolen, full utrustning att grilla och äta utomhus, mycket spel och aktiviteter. Vi var sju personer, inga barn, hyrde både gite 1 & 2 och det fanns precis allting man behövde. Värdparet oerhört trevliga! Besöker gärna igen och kan varmt rekommendera!
... Our own little paradise - Tammy P, CH (Aug 2020)
We have just spent the most wonderful week in the Dordogne. Our accommodation was spotlessly clean and really felt like a home from home. We went with friends and having 2 gîtes included in the rental worked really well for us. We spent many hours in the fabulous pool and just soaking up the sunshine. There are also lots of options to hide away in the shade if needed. If you are looking for a relaxing break in beautiful surroundings with plenty of things to keep the kids happy then Villa Magnieu definitely gets five stars plus.

... Fantastische plek voor een ontspannende familievakantie - Gitte N, NL (July 2020)

Wij genieten nog na van ons verblijf in Villa Magnieu. Het domein is prachtig! Mooi onderhouden en vanalles te doen voor de kinderen (levensgroot schaakbord, boomhut, schommel, glijbaan, pingpong, tafeltennis, speelgoed,..). Het zwembad met patio is heerlijk om te verblijven. Er is vanalles te beleven op korte afstand zowel cultureel, gastronomisch als recreatief. De gîtes zijn heel proper en goed onderhouden. Je vindt er alles wat je nodig hebt. Aasa en David zijn supervriendelijk, hulpvaardig en respecteren je privacy. Een plek om naar terug te komen.

... what a wonderful holiday we have just had - Neil F, UK (August 2019)

Idyllic surroundings and lovely hosts. We couldn't have asked for any more than that. We loved Perigueux, St Astier and our great duck meal in the heart of the local community on the Wednesday evening. The gite, pool and garden are beautiful. The garden and pool in an attempt to describe them are almost beyond words. Imagine a huge garden, a giant chess board, a tree house, large pool, banana trees, grape vines, a fantastic terrace and amazing sunsets - and you have it. Our children did not want to leave, and to be frank, neither did we. 10 out of 10!

... beautiful property with great amenities & a lovely pool set in mature grounds - Lucy B, UK (July 2019)

The accomodation is well appointed, clean and comfortable, great for larger family groups or close friends. The hosts are welcoming and most helpful, pointing out great local attractions and restaurants and fun day trips. The area is great to explore on bikes.

...set in gorgeous grounds with lots for the children to do - Katie H, UK (July 2018)

We had the pleasure of spending our family holiday at Villa Magnieu. The hosts looked after our every need and were very friendly. The gitè itself was just what you would want from a French gitè, set in gorgeous grounds with lots for the children to do, sandpit, slide & table tennis. The heated pool was lovely with the beautiful gardens surrounding it. Highly recommend. We will be back next year.

...perfect for families and large groups wishing to explore the Dordogne - Simon F, UK (July 2018)
The heated pool is amazing and great for kids. The location and setting is exceptional - Aasa and David have created a wonderful place where the attention to detail is second to none. Everything you could ever need is provided and more! Supermarkets are a very close drive away, as is the local village and very easy to get to from Bergerac Airport. Aasa and David are wonderful hosts and can’t wait to come back some time soon.

Excellent gites for family reunion - Lynette S, New Zealand (August 2017)

Aasa and David were charming hosts and we had a wonderful reunion with our English family. We were handy to all the lovely villages nearby, had the use of a large swimming pool and deck chairs. Would certainly recommend these gites for a stay in France.

Charmant et adorable - Angele C, France (August 2017)

L'endroit est magnifique et tres bien meuble, terrasse au calme avec piscine !! ideale pour une grande famille ou un weekend entre amis. Les proprietaires sont tres chaleureux. Nous y retournerons avec plaisir.

A wonderful tranquil location in the heart of the beautiful Dordogne Region of France - Maria H, UK (July 2016)

The location is wonderful a short drive from Bergerac Airport. The owners of the Gite are charming, friendly and helpful, nothing is too much trouble. The Gite is spotlessly clean with everything you need and wonderful touches to make you feel at home. The gardens are beautiful with activities for children to play on plus a pool. There is a charming patio area which is wonderful to enjoy in the morning and evening sun. There are many historical areas to visit with Perigeaux and Riberac a must. We will definitely go back and have recommended to friends. A great location for wonderful holiday.

Superbe sejour! - Tom, France (July 2016)

Nous avons passe un tres agreable sejour a la Villa Magnieu. Le gite est superbe, propre, tres bien equipe avec une jolie terrasse et piscine pour se detendre. il est situe en Dordogne, avec sa quantite de sites a visiter, mais aussi tres pres de saint-emilion. Aasa et David sont des hotes tres attentionnes et disponibles. nous etions 7 dont 3 enfants et il y avait tout a disposition pour eux (balancoire, jouets, aire de jeux, et un immense jardin). Je recommande fortement leur gite, satisfaction garantie.
