To the East Sarlat, & the popular sites of the Dordogne.

Finally, 20 minutes to the North is Perigueux, a wonderful old city.

Yes! - You will find Le Manoir De St. Marcel is ideally located for your holiday. - Many guests return year after year. - They know!

What makes this cottage unique

Le Manoir De St. Marcel rests on a South facing side of a valley.

Lovely: tranquil and pretty holiday home

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely stay at Le Manoir with beautiful weather. The Manor house and it's outbuilding have been sympathetically renovated, with plenty of space outside for children to explore and couples to relax. The house is a good distance from the pool so there are no safety worries, there is a play barn with toys for pre-schoolers, a climbing frame and swings for little ones, and a games barn for bigger ones. We stayed in the term-time when the other guests were couples, and our children could roam around without disturbing them. In the holidays, I think it would be a great space for your children to get to know the other holiday makers (but only if they wanted to). The restaurant in the village is a very easy walk, with beautiful French cuisine in the evenings. There are plenty of child friendly attractions within an hour's drive. We enjoyed paddling in the river at Limieul, followed by lunch and then a quick canoe trip (children ages 3 and 5). The owners were very friendly, and even identified a valuable piece of camera kit that we hadn't realised we had left behind, and posted it on to us. This is a quiet holiday in beautiful countryside for a family or couple who are looking for peaceful surroundings, a heated pool, and the occasional sightseeing tour to lovely old French towns and villages (and markets).
