About Sophie Green

We are Simon & Sophie Green who are in our early forties, originally from Northampton in England. Simon used to be an Electrician and Sophie an Administration Manager within an Accountancy Practice, in our spare time (before children) we enjoyed renovating houses and moved quite regularly in our local village. Following the birth of our first son Louis, we decided to change our careers and set up a Sandwich Shop. We then worked our socks off for 3 years and were fortunate to sell the small business in 2012 following the birth of our second son Freddie. We then set our heart on finding a property in France and moved here in 2013 having found Mirabelles. Francesca our 1st daughter arrived in 2017.

Sophie Green purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Sophie Green chose Mialet

We sold our small business in England and decided to buy a caravan and tour around France looking for our dream property. Our aim was to find a project property which would eventually be able to provide us with some form of income and also be somewhere for us to live. We instantly fell in love with our property and its setting.

After 9 months or so of looking we purchased Mirabelles in May 2013. It certainly needed a lot more work than we were planning on taking on but we fell in love with the setting and just had to buy it. We loved the Perigord Vert and Dordogne Region. We loved the countryside, the forests, the lakes, the people, the weather & climate, the local food and wines. Without being too cliché - we loved the "feel" of the place. Everyone has been so welcoming and although we have been working hard every day feels like we are on holid

What makes this cottage unique

The Gite has been tastefully decorated. The bedrooms and bathrooms in places have very low ceilings because of the beams which gives the rooms lots character and charm. All have been lovingly restored whilst the doors and some of the furniture has been hand crafted. Whilst the inside of the Gite is beautiful we have also created a comfortable and welcoming outside space for you sit and enjoy the weather or enjoy an evening BBQ. We are very close by to lots of swimming lakes which are blissful places to relax and cool off. However we also have an above ground brand new swimming pool for you to enjoy during your stay together with our lovely garden with summer plants and a large lawn area.

Second year at this exceptional gite

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in the same week last year and were blown away by this gite. We know and love the area well - fantastic for families - and have stayed a few different places.

The gite itself exceeded anything that even the most fussy customer could expect. It is decorated and maintained to the highest standard, and equipped better than most people's homes!!

This year we went back, never expecting it to be as good as we remembered (it was a brand new renovation last year) but, if anything, it was better.

We will be back again next year as I can't imagine finding anywhere that will live up to mirabelles. This is our fourth trip to this area and we are still finding wonderful new things to do.

This year it was tree climbing at busierre gallant (fab swimming lake 15 mins away) and nontron (20 mins) and visiting peregeuex- a gorgeous city 50 mins to the south.

We were lucky to be there for a produce market evening and village fete in miallet (a mile down the road). The gite owners took us along and we could not have been made to feel more welcome and included.

Cannot recommend highly enough.

Lovely Gite in a beautiful area

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at Mirabelles Gite, the Gite was beautifully done and had everything we needed along with a lovely garden and pool perfect for relaxing and a dip when it got too hot. We hired a car and arrived within around half an hour. There are lots of gorgeous lakes to visit, Bramtone was worth a trip as was perigueux market. The hosts were very welcoming and had plenty of suggestions of restaurants and days out. We'll definitely be going back!

Immaculate family friendly gite

  • 5 of 5

If you want a gite with a wonderful french style but english quality and comfort, this is the place for you.

Newly renovated, the place is immaculate and has everything you could possibly need and more.

We spent magical evenings barbecuing in the very private and secure garden whilst the children played in the pool.

This is a perfect property for families - full size bath, walk in shower, dishwasher, microwave, washing machine, stair gates, english tv and DVDs, barbecue, picnic crockery... The list is endless.

The area is wonderful, Sophie and simon (the owners) pointed us in the direction of fantastic swimming lakes with canoeing, zip lining and high tree walks. They were a fantastic source of information and could not have been more accommodating.

We will definately be back next year

Perfect holiday

  • 5 of 5

We've just returned from a brilliant holiday staying at Mirabelles Gite. The hosts have created something really special and made our stay exceed our expectations. The farmhouse has been beautifully renovated, retaining gorgeous original features but with all the home comforts (washing machine, dishwasher) making holidaying with a young family a relaxing break. The setting is perfect, open views of the countryside and a safe and secure private garden to relax, play, BBQ and cool off in the pool. The welcome pack has lots of suggestions for activities and restaurants all of which were a hit. We went somewhere different everyday. The lakes were a real highlight for walking, picnicking and swimming; the children thought the swimming lakes were the beach! We split our holiday spending time on the coast prior to travelling to Mirabelles, however would definitely plan two weeks here instead, can't wait to go back again.
