“Great house with friendly and helpful owners”
Reviewed November 13, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

We spent a week at the Manoir with our two sons and friends. A very attractive house in the old French style, well furnished and appointed and set in the midst of beautiful countryside. We made full use of the relaxing pool area which has stunning views especially at sunset.

I can't speak too highly of the owners who contrive to be both unobtrusive and extraordinarily helpful. They provided excellent advice on local facilities/things to do both before and during our visit, as well as extras such as a free barbecue on our arrival. When the bike I had booked turned out to be too big for me to ride they magically produced another one from the barn, again without charge. Nothing was too much trouble.

The Manoir is in an excellent position for wine buying and the owners put us in touch with several local growers, as well as arranging a tour. St Emilion is also close by with its wine shops and first rate restaurants.

If you're a golfer there are good courses in easy reach - Charmaine recommended Chateau Vigiers which also has a wonderful restaurant if you're feeling extravagant.

I would recommend the Manoir very highly for a relaxing holiday in one of the most beautiful and interesting parts of France.

We were really pleased to welcome you back to Le Manoir for another cycling holiday, and to know that you slept well!
There are many varieties of birds, trees and flowers (wild orchids in May), as well as dragonflies, kingfishers, rare turtles, and sometimes you can see deer running across the fields.
The non-barking dog was a delight, but its owner had lost it, and had put up 'missing' posters, so there was a joyous reunion (we were really sad to see it go).
We are on hand to help, and were happy to be able to give you some baking powder for the delicous cakes which you kindly shared with us!
We are going to put additional thermostats in the rooms to make it easier to adjust the temperature.
We thank you for your review, and look forward to seeing you all again next year.

“A lovely country escape”
Reviewed January 22, 2012 for a stay in December 2011

I stayed at Le Manoir with my partner late December 2011, just before Christmas.
The first thing you will notice is the clean air, and the expanses of green that surround you. It is like stepping into another time.

The manor has 2 floors, but there is one bedroom located on the ground floor which would be convenient for any guests with special needs.

The remainder of the ground floor contains a foyer, a sitting room, a lounge room with a wood heater and a television (it receives both French and English cable channels), as well as a full kitchen with all the modern amenities you are used to, but still maintaining its old-world charm.

Upstairs there are 3 bedrooms with en suites, all decorated impeccably. The room we stayed in had double basins, a heated towel rail and a spa bath in the en suite. The bed was extremely comfortable, and I had the best sleep I have had in months. This was also helped by the lack of disturbing light or noise.

Our hosts, Charmaine and Jeff, were extremely hospitable, and had plenty of advice on nearby places to visit and good walks to do.

There is a nearby wine cellar located in front of ruins, which is also famous for growing giant vegetables, and has donkeys wandering the grounds. There is also a nice walk down to the lake.

The grounds of Le Manoir are complete with a swimming pool, and their own lakes. They also have chickens and ducks, which add to the atmosphere.

It would be the perfect place to have a family holiday, a family reunion, or even a wedding.

We can't wait to go back!

We are pleased that you had a nice time at Le Manoir in December, and thank you for your review.
Next time, if you come in the warmer months, you may like to sunbathe on the terrace and enjoy a barbecue.
Whatever the weather, you are assured of a warm welcome.
