About the property

16th Century Manor House

Situated 15 kms from Perigueux, the delightful capital city of the Perigord Region, this charming property has been beautifully restored by the owners. The Manor House has three large bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, the two cottages, which have been converted from an old Perigordian grange, has two bedrooms and two bathrooms and can accommodate 5/6 people in each cottage, and the studio sleeps two people with double bed and separate shower room. All the units are normally rented together in high season but individual houses may be rented in June, July and August where no full site bookings have been taken. Baby cots and additional fold-away beds are available on request for extra guests. This property is ideal for one or more family groups holidaying together with excellent kitchen and bathroom facilities in all four houses.

The property is situated around a central courtyard and lawns on 2 hectares of land with views over the surrounding countryside. The location is superbly situated for bird watching, off road cycling and walking and is within easy reach of many sites of interest in the Dordogne Region and just a short drive to Perigueux with shops, restaurants and gourmet food markets. The in-ground heated swimming pool is situated in a sunny location and is fully fenced with sun loungers and parasols, outdoor dining furniture and barbecues are supplied for the use of guests. Table tennis, boules, a range of inflatables for the pool are also available together with wifi internet and Sky television.

During the summer months of June, July and August, the property is available as a private site for up to 19 guests.

About Frances

As your hosts we will be pleased to welcome you to our stunning property. Having lived in the Perigord for the last twelve years, we are ideally placed to offer you the best accommodation with the best local knowledge.

Piers & Frances

Frances purchased this cottage in 2001

Why Frances chose Perigord Blanc

It was an area we knew well and Perigueux is a great attraction with its medieval city, Roman ruins and Renaissance centre. The strawberries grown in the local area are lovely too!

There are plenty of castles and chateaux to explore, canoeing on the Dordogne and Vezere rivers, and of course the gastronomic delights served in many of the local restaurants.

What makes this cottage unique

The property is in the countryside but only 8 kms from Vergt which has all amenities and good shopping and weekly market. Walking and cycling are immediately available from the house. The property is not overlooked and enjoys lovely views over the surrounding area. If you are keen on birds, we have more than 110 species of birds which can be easily seen from the property or within a few kilometers walk.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 10 nights in this wonderful cottage, we booked very last minute so were unsure what to expect, the cottage far exceeded expectations. Very well equipped, spacious, bright and airy, plenty of space and incredibly quiet. The pool was just steps away and gets the sun all day with the bonus of a lovely view. Frances and Piers were very welcoming and helpful. The cottage is located in a rural location, which was lovely, it's about 15 minutes drive to the nearest town and supermarket, a bit further if you want a wider selection of restaurants etc. Also within easy reach of Bergerac and many other towns worth a visit. We would definitely return to this lovely cottage and we will be back.
