Gourdon - Fantastic location for a family reunion or for a group of friends
Le Manoir has everything you could possible need to ensure you have the best holiday. Not only is it completely secluded, but the house is situated in it's own 13 hectares of beautiful fields and woodland - perfect for exploring. It can sleep 16 adults, 2 children and 2 babies with 8 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms.
Located just 3km from the picturesque Bastide town of Gourdon, Le Manoir is perfectly situated to explore the Dordogne and Lot rivers. There is something for everyone in this region whatever your budget. Châteaux Beynac, Castelnaud and Milandes are widely regarded as some of the best preserved buildings dating back to the 12th century and are only 25 minutes away. Unbelievably this region is also blessed with many of the World’s most important caves and areas of archaeological significance like Padirac, Pech Merle and Lascaux, while at Les Eyzies there are far too numerous to mention but include 147 pre-historic sites dating back 40,000 years.
Basically the property is two large houses which are join together to provide a huge, comfortable property which boasts 2 luxury fitted kitchens inside, plus an additional kitchen right next to the 15m by 6m pool, which is situated to the left of the house. The pool is surrounded by a spacious sun terrace, with umbrellas and sun lounges, and has it’s own cooker, fridge, BBQ and extra bathroom and shower, the perfect place for lunch on a hot summers day and for keeping your drinks cool so you don't have to keep returning to the main house.
When you drive up to this impressive looking property, there is a large parking area with a covered carport. You'll also see a large playground for children surrounded by trees, with swings, sandbox, slide and playhouse.
For the adults there is a badminton court, table tennis and bowling balls. There are also 2 bicycles to use, plus many blow-up toys for the pool - something for every age.
Go up the stairs to the large covered terrace area with dining table - imagine sitting here eating your breakfast while taking in the magnificent views of the surrounding countryside or perhaps in the evening watching the sun go down with a glass or two of the excellent local wines.
Every group who stays at Le Manoir receives a comprehensive 'Welcome Pack' made up of seasonal local produce including bread, wine, coffee, cheese and sausages etc so even if you arrive late your group will have something to eat.

They all have exposed stone work and one of the doubles is actually situated in the pigonnier - a traditional tower which used to house the families pigeons - but don't worry - they're long gone. You can lie in bed looking up at the original oak beams. All the bedrooms have great views into the garden and beyond.
