Set in rural France to the north of the Dordogne, this Manoir is a treasure. Beautifully restored and well equipped, this is the ideal holiday for extended family or for groups of friends. Lovely rooms with great comfort, a stunning garden and a magnificent pool with a pool house and facilities for outdoor cooking. Our hosts Nicholas and Simon were both tremendous fun and always available but they were sensitive to our needs and judged when to join in and when to leave us to ourselves. They live in a small building on site and make sure that everything is working. They even clean the bar-b-que and the planche every morning and make sure that there is a constant supply of cheap but very drinkable wine on hand! Croquet on the lawn, vegetables from the garden - it couldn't be more idyllic. There is lots to do in the area which is largely not full of tourists even in the summer months (a great change from the Dordogne proper which we found busy, crowded and over-rated).The local store is perfect with fresh bread and pain aux raisin and supplies of almost everything. Local visits include Thiviers, Perigeaux and the beautiful villages of Excuiduel and Saint Jean de Cole. Lots of places to eat, castles to visit and gardens to see. Highly, highly recommended
We had a very relaxing time and the five children that were with us enjoyed the swimming pool, the nearby lakes and the horse riding. Good to have access to fresh bread and pastries every day and enjoyed the BBQ at the castle. The only area for improvement would be the service clean at the midpoint after one week. We expected this to be more than just change of bed linen and towels based on our experience of renting holiday homes elsewhere.
