What our guests are saying about us:
'A tailored package for an easy and memorable stay”
'We spent a glorious summer week at Le Manoir and were exceptionally well looked after by Josiane and her team. The twelve of us had ample accommodation (the ensuites are perfect) and were able to spread out amongst the communal rooms during the evenings when we were not all eating together. Josiane organised a completely tailored package of food shopping, catering and cleaning and could not have been more helpful. The pool and enormous grounds were excellent, and we can highly recommend Le Manoir to anyone looking for a large and flexible venue. Thank you again Josiane for making our stay so easy and memorable.”

The limestone geology throughout Périgord and Quercy has resulted in series of caves with stunning pre-historical cave paintings which are open to the public.

Getting around

The immediate area around the Manoir mixes a surprising blend of folkloric and modern culture with traditional street markets and exciting sports for adrenaline junkies - parachute jumping, piloting, go-karting - or more peaceful activities - cycling, walking, horse riding, fishing - or from the Manoir's south facing terrace, star-gazing late in the warm summer nights...
