Owned by Phyllis. Born in Wisconsin. I speak English, French and some German. I have an apartment in the Manor where I live in the summer. The rest of the time, I am only 20 minutes away.

I will be present to meet you when you arrive. I am looking forward to getting to know you and your family and friends.

Phyllis purchased this villa in 1982

I bought this lovely manor because it has a special charm from a bygone era.

There is lots of space and I love gardening. The house is a cultural meeting place, where we hold classes in History and Archaeology for the University of Georgia, as well as other subjects. Familys love our house as it is easy to

get supplies from the store across the street and is near the railway station.

I am sure your family will love it too.

Our manor is located very near the railway station making train travel very easy. We are one kilometer from the Autoroute entry.

You can also arrive by boat during the summer season. Our lake is connected to two other lakes with regular boat service. Bicycles are easily rented and there are hundres of kilometers of bike trail to follow. Our area has a rich historical past, which is why we house a

Studies Abroad for the University of Georgia. You can follow 17000 years of history starting with the Latenium museum in Neuchatel, Neolithic village in Gletterons, Roman town of Avenches.

In July there is an opera festival in the Roman arena of Avenches.

“un petit paradis”

Pour notre réunion familiale de fin d'année (14 personnes) , cette maison magnifique nous a offert tout le confort voulu. On se sent tout de suite chez soi. Le jardin est très grand, idéal pour les enfants. La propriétaire des lieux est très sympathique et acceuillante. Je vous conseille cette destination pour des retrouvailles de famille ou même pour un petit week-end romantique à deux. Nous gardons tous un très bon souvenir de notre séjour dans ce havre de paix, ainsi qu'à Estavayer-le-lac. La region est belle et les activités ne manquent pas.

Réunion de famille

  • Submitted: Nov 19, 2012
  • Stayed: Oct 2012
« Nous avons trouvé la maison idéale pour réunir toute la famille : grands-parents, enfants et petits-enfants, soit 15 personnes au total. Nous avons passé une très bonne semaine dans cette maison spacieuse et agréable : de grandes chambres très confortables, plusieurs avec terrasse, un beau jardin, un accueil très chaleureux.

Par ailleurs, la situation, à quelques centaines de mètres du lac et du château de Estavayer-le-Lac, est très attractive. Nous avons également profité de la proximité de Bern, Fribourg, Gruyères, Neuchâtel, pour quelques journées de tourisme dans la région. »

Wonderful Mansion

  • Submitted: Jul 15, 2012
  • Stayed: Jun 2012
We spent our family vacation in this wonderful mansion with 17 beds, enough for our large family reunion. The location was ideal. We were close enough to many wonderful activities such as Roman ruins, medieval castles, hiking in the swiss alps etc. to keep our family entertained. Phyllis was so gracious to give us a two hour walking tour of the city which has a charming feel and atmosphere. The house had a lot of history and each room was large enough for each couple to feel they had enough space to relax in. We definitely would recommend it for anyone wanting to stay in the area.

My family traveled overseas for the first time to represent the USA at a World Sporting Competition being held in Neuchatel, Switzerland. I cannot tell you how my first experience in overseas could have gone any better. The owner/hostess of My Lady’s Manor was extremely helpful even before we arrived. Since I had never traveled overseas, I was a constant email nag to Phyllis (owner/hostess) to provide information about Switzerland and things which had nothing to do with her bed and breakfast. She never hesitated to provide help or point me in the right direction. When we arrived at My Lady’s Manor, it only got better. The bed and breakfast was beautiful, spacious, and convenient. With a grocery store across the street and the train station just a few more steps away, we were never wanting anything we could not easily access. The town of Estavayer-le-Lac was absolutely charming and provided the setting for many enjoyable evening walks past shops and along the lake. I would highly recommend My Lady’s Manor to anyone visiting Switzerland. Even though we arrived in Switzerland for a stressful, tightly scheduled sporting event, My Lady’s Manor seemed to magically transform the entire week into a calm, tranquil, and absolutely pleasant experience/event.

If you are familiar with walk scores, My Lady's Manor, in the thriving town of Estavayer, surely scores a perfect 100! Only steps from the train station with its hourly connections, the location affords many leisurely day trips--ours included trips to Murten, Interlocken and Lavaux Vineyards complete with a cruise on Lake Leman (Geneva) and a petite train tour of the vineyards originating at the pier in Lutry. With a grocery across the street and other bakeries, butcher shops, restaurants, banks, drug store, post office and all manor of small shops there is nothing needed you can't find. We enjoyed the quiet meditation afforded by two ancient chapels--the Collegiate Church of Saint Laurent and the chapel of the Dominican sisters. Our group of 10 enjoyed My Lady's Manor for its historic charm, its spaciousness--both inside and out, its places to come together to eat, cook and visit and for the privacy and comfort of its bedrooms. In our eight days there, it quickly felt like home. Phyllis is the perfect hostess with a humorous and vibrant knowledge of the town's history. Her help before our arrival, our time there and her kind send-off will be remembered by all of us for years to come!
