Fantastic holiday in beautiful property and garden

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful two week at this stunning property with friends and family. The house was very well equipped for large parties and we found everything we needed. The gardens are stunning with lots of different areas to sit and enjoy the peaceful surrounding. Pascal and his team were very attentive and took care of anything that needed doing. We hired a chef that Pascal recommended and he prepared a wonderful 5 course meal for 12 of us to celebrate a milestone birthday. We would love to return!

How you imagine France to be.

  • 5 of 5

The photographs don't do this house justice, it is simply stunning. We were told the building dates from 1590 and it certainly makes you feel as though you are staying in a traditional French Chateau. It feels grand and historical yet has all the modern conveniences you could need. The house, grounds, pool and tennis court are very well maintained. The kitchen is very well equipt.

Pascal the owner has made this place wonderful. He was very welcoming and couldn't have been more helpful in the booking, check in and out. He is super quick at responding to any emails and queries. The recommendation of a chef to come and make dinner is well worth taking up too. Great value (far less than a similar meal out) and 4 delicious courses plus canapes.

The only ways this place could possibly be improved would be to have a better internet connection as it was intermittent. It would also be lovely to have curtains at all the bedroom windows in addition to the shutters that are already there. However that is being picky.

This was a fabulous holiday rental and I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again if the opportunity arose in the future.

A Magnificent unusual historic building in a glorious location with exceptional service.

  • 5 of 5

We booked the Manoir for a special family get together with 3 generations ranging from age 17 to nearly 80 so 3 families. We were all spellbound by the scale of the property, it's history, and the beauty of it's setting. The well designed interior with large cool reception rooms were all well appointed with interesting art and artefacts. There was plenty of space for us all. The bedrooms were very comfortable, and clean, and the bathrooms worked well for us too, with enough for such a large group.The overall layout worked well for us as there was space for everyone to find their own activity, whether swimming, playing cards, playing tennis, singing and playing the piano, filming, reading in the hammock or on one of the many sun loungers, sunbathing, chatting at one of the many tables set up in various locations around the garden or eating! We ate outside every night and booked an outstanding local chef, recommended by our host, for one evening for a special dinner. We loved the proximity to Perigueux for trips to buy delicious local food from the market and speciality shops, and also enjoyed the closeness of the village Boulangerie- with the daily bread run as the first task of the day. Pascal gave us a wonderful welcome, he was very informative and ensured we knew exactly how everything worked. The staff were also most reliable and helpful, both the cleaning team and the gardener Daniel who checked and maintained the pool three times during our stay. We enjoyed our stay so much we plan to return.

Historic, Charming, comfortable and very practical

  • 5 of 5

This is a gem! Set in glorious countryside with everything a group or family could possibly want to make their holiday special. The house is lovely. The kitchen and dining room became our groups gathering places for breakfast and dinner with the garden tables and pool were where we enjoyed Apero every day. Bedrooms were comfortable and the bathrooms immaculate. The listing is accurate. The chateau was clean and very well maintained. The owner provided excellent service and I would recommend this chateau to any family or group looking for a vacation in Perigord. The area provides so many interesting activities for all ages.

Fabulous retreat for our large family gathering

  • 5 of 5

Our party of 11 - 7 adults, 2 teenagers, and 2 small children gathered at Pascal's wonderful home at the end of July, to celebrate several momentous birthdays. We had spent a year anticipating this week, and we were not disappointed. Faultless, and we cannot recommend it highly enough. The home is grand without being overwhelming. Large airy rooms, polished wooden floors, stone staircases and thick stone walls, rooms lined with art books and music, tasteful, period furniture and antique sculpture. Solid working kitchen - not particularly modern, but in keeping, functional and practical for our large party (we ate in every night), giving easy access to the sweeping lawn down to the pool. Modern bathrooms and plentiful hot water. The largest pool (heated, and maintained throughout the week by a discrete gardener who arrived early to clean it and water pots) I have seen at a private holiday residence, and a fabulous tennis court which was well used during our week.

We were in regular contact with Pascal prior to our arrival, he answered all our pre trip questions, and met us on arrival - and kindly allowed us to deposit our bags early so we could empty our car in order to carry out a big initial shop for our week. He is warm and welcoming - and justifiably proud of what he has created here.

There are several eating areas - we ate in the sunny courtyard for breakfast ( having had a quick sortie by car to the award winning boulangerie), and every evening meal was at a large table on the lawn, shaded by trees, with overhead lanterns for when the dark set in. There are other smaller seating areas dotted around the property - our party could disperse and gather at will, find space for ourselves, but be together comfortably. On the Thursday evening of our stay, we held our special celebration - and were treated to a wonderful evening hosted by Laurent Jauvin, a chef recommended by Pascal. We couldn't have been more pleased - bringing his own linens, cutlery etc, Laurent and his assistant created an atmospheric table for us in the garden, and served an amazing 3 course meal - taking special care with the children in the party.

Pascal can't take credit for the long sunny days which we also enjoyed for our stay, but deserves much credit for everything else, this is a truly lovely setting for a large family gathering. Thank you Pascal!
