Welcome to the Dordogne!
We would like to welcome you to Les Magnolias, located at the edge of the “bastide” Lalinde, founded by Henri III Plantagenet in 1267. You will find our domain of 6 acres on the banks of the Dordogne river.
Les Magnolias is located in an authentic setting where time seems to have stood still. Once you enter by the big gate, you are in our fully enclosed park with beautiful old magnolia, cedar and oak trees. You will find many seating areas in the sun or in the shade. You can ,after you have checked in at the reception, park your car in our private parking for guests.The swimming pool (17 x 7 m) has a lovely view of the river, it has extensive terraces and is surrounded by palm and olive trees. The pool is filled with water from our own source. It is a unique oasis of peace. Behind the swimming pool you will find a terrace with lounge corner and bamboebar. WIFI is available in the total accommodation.
Our Maison de Maitre, a romantic riverside mansion from the 18th century, has recently been renovated into a boutique style chambre d’hotes accomodation. The adjacent building was used as a tobacco and wine warehouse and is now converted into a holiday home complex. In 2021 we acquired a nearby Périgourdine stonehouse on the Dordogne river. This house has been converted into 2 spacious holiday homes.
Les Magnolias is our dream come true. We have four generous guest rooms ,one luxurious apartment and seven tastefully furnished holiday homes.
