Wonderful stay at a beautiful property
We spent an incredible 9 nights at Laurence and Lionel's home. It was perfect in every way for our two families. The rooms were all very comfortable and well-appointed. The kitchen was spacious and had everything we needed to prepare meals. The pool and tennis court were perfect and the grounds were absolutely stunning. The location is perfect for touring the area and there are shops and restaurants within a 15 - 20 minute walk.
Laurence and Lionel were very gracious hosts and were very helpful with tips and suggestions for what to do and where to go. They kindly let us check in earlier than expected which was a huge plus given that two of our party were suffering the after-affects of food poisoning. They made us feel very welcome at all times.
We can't recommend this property enough. Everyone was sad to leave this beautiful corner of France and we're looking forward to a return trip in the future.
It is with great gratitude that we discover your opinion and thank you very much for it.
We do our utmost to ensure that this house, which we especially love, also appeals to travellers who stop there for their stay.
We put a lot of passion and energy to keep it warm, and we are very happy when they feel the same pleasure as we.
It will be 300 years old next year and we are renovating and maintaining it for decades to keep the place beautiful and friendly, at the same time old and modern comfort.
On our side, we had a great pleasure to welcome you. Canadians are always very special, kind, enthusiastic, smiling and particularly pleasant people, especially for us French!
You left the house in a particularly clean state when you left, and it is nice to see that respect is always a word that should be there.
Our only regret is, as time goes by very quickly, that we have not had time to exchange more with you.
But the main thing is that you had good holidays, we’re glad.
We wish you continued success in your beautiful country, and we thank you again for brightening our summer with your joy of life.
We look forward to seeing you again in the future,
Lionel and Laurence
Lovely house but badly needs decluttering
We had a very enjoyable time. The pool was super, but uncomfortable chairs & a pool house with no 'fridge or WC. Attractive spacious bedrooms & superb blinds making them very comfortable. Very comfy beds but blankets instead of duvets, which was a shame. The kitchen was not as
luxurious as we expected - simple & quite basic, which was disappointing.
Overall the whole place could be stunning but needs some serious tweaking.
We acquainted with your message and thank you for it. To answer your questions,
the outside chairs are actually garden chairs typified castle, for the esthtisme, but to make them more comfortable, it is necessary to add pillows, which are in the cupboard of the lounge. But of course, we remain them in case of rain.
A refrigerator is intended for the pool house in mid-season, but it is difficult to leave it under temperatures from 35 to 38 ° in summer, for reason of surge. There is no toilets in the swimming pool, but the entrance patio of the Manor house being in 10m, there is not far to go.
As for the rooms, they are equipped with braids from the autumn until spring, that we remove in summer and that we replace by light covers for the same reasons as evoked above, namely that it is otherwise too hot.
Finally, as for the kitchen, we occupy the Manor house all year long for our hosts, and we have absolutely all that it is necessary and in quantity. Unfortunately, for reasons of behavior of some of our tenants, sometimes much less worried and respectful than us of beautiful things, we are obliged to remove certain elements of decoration of as well as furnitures and valuable utensils.
For example, we had expressly asked you not to smoke in rooms but outdoor only. When you left, rooms smelt so much tobacco that we had to leave opened windows all weekend long and to give all the textiles to clean, including curtains. It is unfortunately the kind of constraints we meet most of the time.
And if you missed things, if we remember, at the time of inventory of fixtures when you arrived, We told you that if you were lacking anything, we were at your disposal for
we told you that if you had of anything, we were at your disposal for it.
In any case, we are happy that you had an enjoyable time.
We wish all the best and still thank you for your precision.
DOMAINE DU MANOIR
The Domain Du Manoir is a fantastic place!
I spent my 40th birthday here back in early September. My wife and I and five of our friends spent the week. It is an amazing place. It is an historic residence that has been lovingly restored. Wonderful and tasteful furnishing. One of my fiends is pretty good on the piano and he had a great time playing the grand piano in the living room. The outdoor space is well kept and very spacious. The pool was a little chilly though as it was late in the season. The owners, Lionel and Lawrence are super friendly and arranged all our dinner reservations for us. The told us about all the best places to eat and introduced us to the Michelin starred restaurant Les Morainieres - one of the best restaurants that I have ever eaten at!! They even escorted us to their favorite local vineyard where we bought some pretty good wine for 6 euros. You don't get that in Napa Valley! We used the home as a base for cycling some of the big cols in the alps. It was a bit of a drive to the Alpe d'huez, Col de la Madeleine and Col du Galibier, but it was worth it to stay in a home as memorable as this. I would absolutely stay here again. It is a country property so you do need a car to drive places. The local town has a few restaurants (we had a fun night at the very casual pizza restaurant - Corsica) but really you have to drive to Morestel (about 10mins) to get more options. A day trip to Lac d'Aiguebelette is a must. A quick swim in the lake and a fish lunch was truly memorable. Lionel and Lawrence, thank you for opening your home to us and making us feel so welcome!
Dear John, Dear Becky, Thank you so much for your message which goes up to us in the heart. We appreciated a lot your presence here and often speak about you. You were "golden "hosts", very kind, curious about everything, loving food, laughing all the time. We didn't have enough time to know you. What a damage in which you live so far away ! See you maybe one day in San Francisco?
Wunderbare, traumhafte Location.
Hat unsere Erwartungen vollumfänglich erfüllt, nein übertroffen.
Ganz herzlichen Dank an Lionel und Laurence!
We thank you very much for your feed back.
Unfortunately, we could not provide you with the sun that should have accompanied your stay, we rarely saw such a rainy June Week end !
It has been a pleasure to meet you, you are charming... Real Swiss persons !
Looking forward to seeing you again for a next stay, we will pray that the sun is here!

Superbe domaine très bon accueil des propriétaires
Merci à Laurence et Lionel pour leur accueil dans cette propriété de rêve. Parents et enfants ont apprécié la très belle piscine et une maison de charme. Nous recommandons sans réserve le Domaine du Manoir
Wunderschöner Aufenthalt, herrliches Anwesen
Wir (2 Familien, 4 Erwachsene und 6 Kinder) hatten einen wunderschönen Aufenthalt in Les Avenieres. Das grosse Anwesen bietet viel Möglichkeiten zum Verweilen: Tennisplatz (Hartplatz), Boule-Bahn, Garten, Lounge, Terrasse und einen wunderschönen, flachabfallenden Pool. Das Haus ist geräumig, bietet eine gut ausgestattete Küche, Waschmaschine und alle Zimmer sind mit Badezimmer/Dusche ausgestattet. Einkaufsmöglichkeit >1km. Die Gastgeber sind sehr herzlich und freundlich. Wir können Domaine du Manior auf jeden Fall weiterempfehlen!!!
