Holidaying at Le Manoir is all about having loads of family things to do in the safe environment of our huge grounds, we frequently hear from parents that they were suprised that they actually had some relaxation themselves and found they needed to go and find what the kids were doing when they had finished their reading and wanted some interaction. Le Manoir tries to turn the 'Mum I'm bored' holiday on its head.

But when you are ready to explore the area, just hop in the car for a huge variety of fun, exploring and sight-seeing. We are only 30 minutes from the fabulous family friendly golden atlantic beaches at Royan and only 15 minutes from the quaint fishing ports on the massive Gironde estuary. The area is steeped in history and has a range of good quality family tourist attractions, several are world class.

We were delighted with the location and standard of our accommodation. Tony was the perfect host, on hand with helpful information and guidance but never overbearing or intrusive. Our boys (aged 14 and 12) found lots to do and although we had bikes with us...More

the stay went very well. we were well briefed at the outset on how to use the facilities and get the most out of our stay. any issues, eg with the trampoline (important for our children) were quickly addressed.

About the neighbourhood
Set in gently rolling countryside and surrounded by woodland, apple orchards, sunflowers and vineyards yet only a short drive to the coast. The local lanes are a delight for a quiet stroll or a family cycle ride when you can spot lots of interesting wildlife including huge birds of prey circling the woodland. When you are bored with watching the sun go down over your BBQ, there are plenty of good restaurants within a short drive.
There are a wide variety of activities for all ages within easy reach of Le Manoir for example:
10 pin bowling at Saintes and Meschers, both 30 mins
Quad bikes - an excellent forest track with exciting dips and climbs and bridges. 35 mins Royan
Go Ape - Zip Wires - 5 courses some very high and challenging. 30mins Royan.
