Located 10 minutes drive from Chantonnay is this beautiful manor. As mentioned by everyone Laurent and Aurelia are the best of hosts. Breakfast is a feast set for kings, sadly we didn't get the chance for 4 course dinner as our stay was primarily for a wedding and we were addicted to French cheese and charcuterie. The pool is amazing,... More

If your after peace and tranquillity as we were this is the place for you. Superb on every level. We spent a week here and would have happily stayed for another. The owners Laurent and his Wife Aurelia we're the perfect hosts. They couldn't do enough for us. They we're so attentive. We stayed on a bed and breakfast arrangement,... More

Beautiful manoir steeped in history run charmingly by the hereditary owners rooms comfortable clean and simple in a grand spirit if that's not a paradox. Clearly if you insist on Relais & Chateau style and service this is not the place for you but if you want a genuine welcome and be plugged into the community where you are staying... More

This is a very delightful Manor near Chantonnay. Its been in the same family since 1644 and even though it is very old, the rooms are just so beautifully decorated, it is very comfortable and exceptionally comfortable. Laurant and Aurelia are the most wonderful friendly couple and make you feel like a family member. Well worth a visit.

This manor house has been in the same family for 12 generations and is one of the most pleasant places we have stayed in. We were made very welcome by Laurent and his wife, had a delightful room overlooking the grounds and enjoyed a delicious meal served by Laurent and cooked by his wife. Pre-dinner drinks for all guests were... More

Stayed for 2 nights. Booked late and only the standard rooms were available. These were still very comfortable but therefore cannot comment on the 4 poster rooms. Meals are cooked by Laurent's wife. It is a set menu and you do not know what is on the menu until the evening. Depending how many guests are eating you all may... More

Delightful hosts who were caring, attentive, efficient and with a great sense of humour. Bags of character in every room, relaxing atmosphere and the outdoor pool very inviting. Our family ( late teens, twenty some things and two retired young at hearts !) were overjoyed when we arrived at the Manoir and our enthusiasm for the place never wavered (we... More

We only stayed for one night - wish it could have been longer. Everything from the Queen sized comfortable bed to the beautifully prepared, home- cooked dinner was perfect for us. The host spoke English while we tried out our French and he went out of his way to ensure that all was to our liking. His wife was charming... More

We spent 3 glorious nights at Ponsay and can highly recommend this lovely manoir. Unlike so many places which try hard to create a feeling of authenticity this is, without doubt, the real deal. Everything from the glorious bedroom (we had the red four-poster room) to the scrumptious dinners was top-notch. It was also located in rolling country-side but close... More

We spent three nights at this lovely family owned manor house. It is a delight. A beautiful building, fine small pool in a sun trap courtyard, excellent dining, and even a friendly dog who came on part of our walk. Friendly, welcoming and great value, with high standards.
