About the property


Ideal for families & friends alike, Manoir du Cedre is a charming estate situated in the Gironde Department of historic Aquitaine. Nearby are the Departments of Lot-et-Garonne and Dordogne. Within a short drive are the market towns of Monsegur, Sauveterre-de-Guyenne and Duras.

The Manoir du Cedre Estate has 3 well-maintained properties comfortably accommodating small to large parties of 2 to 14 guests + 2 babies in cots. Les Vignes & Petit d'Albret Cottages each have 2 bedrooms and can be let separately to smaller groups providing excellent family accommodation for 4/5 people. When both cottages are rented together they accommodate 8 to 10 guests. The very flexible accommodation allows a large group greater privacy than everyone staying under one roof, as guests can book the 2 self-catered cottages and up to 3 en-suite bedrooms situated in the private wing of the owner’s 17th century Manoir. The Estate has 3.3 acres of attractive grounds. Parts of the house are even older as the cellars were constructed in the 13th century. The properties are built on 3 sides of an attractive gravel courtyard boasting summertime displays of flowers, including roses, clematis & lavender. A feature in the courtyard is the raised central fountain with gold fish (unfenced & one metre deep). With several dining & sun bathing terraces, extensive grounds & a fenced & gated 10m x 5m swimming pool with Roman style steps (depth of 1m to 2.1m), the Estate is ideal for a relaxing holiday whether with friends or family. Table tennis/badminton/boules.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Les Vignes - We had a lovely time & would definitely return. The small space in your book didn't allow us nearly enough praise for you & the gite!! I'm missing your jam & your bread was amazing! Fiona, Wayne & Ross.

Petit d'Albret - We just wanted to say thank you so much for a wonderful holiday. We had such a lovely time & you were a big contributor in enabling us to feel so relaxed. We really enjoyed ourselves. Jane & Gordon.

Les Vignes - Thank you so much for sending the breakages deposit back to us so quickly. We had an absolutly lovely holiday. The gite was so well equipped & your attention to detail made it perfect. The pool was the cleanest pool we have ever had in France/Italy. We think you have got a great set up there, all acheived by your own hard work ...Elaine, Simon & Rebecca.

Manoir - For once at a loss for words to describe the exquisite attention to detail, enjoyed in a friendly relaxed atmosphere, truly a memorable holiday.

Alma & Tom.

Amazing place

  • 5 of 5

Myself and family have been coming here for 6 years now and are coming out again this August. This in itself speaks volumes.

We can't stay away.

Have stayed in both gites and in the bed and breakfast rooms at various times. All are kept to an immaculate standard. It's like home from home.

The pool and surrounding gardens are again, well kept, clean and a pleasure to be in and around.

Jane ,who runs the properties is friendly, accommodating and easy to approach if any help is needed. We now look on her as 'family' and look forward to seeing her each year. It's become a tradition to spends birthday here exchange summer.

The area around is quaint and quiet and lovely to walk around. Neighbouring villages hold regular day and night markets that we make a point of attending each year we are out.

It's unspoilt and green. Love the fields of sunflowers.

Lovely all round.
