About the property

Manor house in Montmoreau St Cybard, nr Aubeterre sur Dronne,France - Situated on the outskirts of the lively town of Montmoreau and historic town of Aubeterre sur Dronne

Manoir la Breuille offers magnificent holiday accommodation with a heated private swimming pool and beautiful gardens. The house can accommodate up to 14 people and offers the following: 5 bedrooms - 2 twin, 2 double and one family room for 4, 5 bathrooms, large living room, elegant dining room, 2 kitchens, garden room, outside BBQ with covered terrace and small lake. The charming town of Montmoreau itself, boasts one the most important churches on the pilgrimage route of Santiago de la Compostelle, along with an impressive and recently restored chateau. A lively town with a train station (you can catch a train to nearby Angouleme or Bordeaux here), bars and restaurants, swimming pool and tennis courts, which are only a few minutes away from La Breuille. Aubeterre sur Dronne and St Aulaye are not far away and they each have a river beach and play area for the children. There is canoeing and cycling all nearby. This region is famed for the quality of its light, a luminosity that draws artists and photographers from far afield. There is a clarity which comes from the nearby ocean, combined with a warm inland glow, that produces an amber light that softens the contours and gives a magical radiance to any building stone that it falls upon.

8 of us stayed here to watch the historic car racing at Angouleme and used the house as a base. It really is as lovely as it looks in the pictures, the rooms are large with really comfy beds.

The owners are also really good to deal with and responded with any queries we had.

Perfect house for either a group of friends or a family gathering. Highly recommended.

Noël en famille dans cette belle demeure. Maison spacieuse, très confortable, au calme. Hôtes très accueillants et attentionnés à nos égard.

Cette maison doit être agréable en toute saison. À recommander sans hésitation.

What a place!

  • 5 of 5

Just want to say what a beautiful property this Manoir is!! This was the first time I had stayed in a Manoir and I was not disappointed! The rooms are all bright and airy and look out over the surrounding countryside. I love swimming and the pool was always clean and warm. The gardens were all well maintained with flowers and trees. Plenty of things to do but it was lovely sitting on the terrace area in the evening with my aperitif enjoying the setting sun. Make sure you visit!
