The house was absolutely stunning with everything you need and more provided. It was a real pleasure to stay in this beautiful home - it really did feel like a home rather than a holiday let. Chris and Jacky went out of their way to ensure we had the best holiday possible.
The Talbot Family June 2015
We loved coming out of season and enjoyed the warm fire, central heating plus the wonderful walks
Exceeded our expectations, beautifully designed French manoir
Chris and Jacky have beautifully restored and modernised this traditional Manoir, creating a stunning home within which you can relax and unwind, from subtle decor to modern facilities you simply ease into rural french life the minute you walk through the door. As hosts they are approachable, supportive and friendly providing unrivaled service whilst respecting personal privacy. We have found their advice and knowledge of the region invaluable, helping us to experience Dorgogne at it's best. This was our 3rd visit returning to a warm welcome and leaving as friends, we have already booked our return! We have no hesitation of recommending Manor Farm Dordogne to family and friends alike, a real gem which once experienced will leave you wanting more.
Very Stylish, everything you imagine in your dreams! The best house we have ever stayed in. We stayed in Le Manoir this summer for 2 weeks. It was a real privilege to enjoy such a stylish, comfortable house with wonderful rural views on all sides. Add in the well maintained salt water swimming pool (not a red eye in sight) and a variety of animals to enjoy and you have the makings of a truly wonderful holiday in an area of France with a wealth of activities available and many places of historic interest to enjoy. The owners very helpful & kind. We travel to france every year and this was by far the the most beautiful house we have ever stayed in. Excellent value.
Le Manoir exceeded our expectations in every way. The photographs of the property looked lovely but on arrival we hadn't anticipated the wonderful spaciousness and attention to detail of the design. It was a real privilege to stay in such a beautiful house and it was perfect for our family group of three generations. The situation of the ample gardens around the house was great as it meant that we could follow the sun or always find some shade during the day with a great choice of well planned outside space. There were tables for dining both to the front and back of the house and a lovely swinging garden seat towards the side perfect for relaxing with a book. The pool was well equipped with a nice shaded area and comfortable loungers and provided a great meeting point for us with the family staying in the farm house. The highlight of the week for our son Jack (11) was making friends with the children of the other family and with the delightful Holton girls. The pool was a perfect distance from the house which meant that we always retained our privacy at the Manoir, but could be sociable when we wanted to, which was great as Jack was having to do lots of revision for school exams and needed to be quiet to work but could also have fun swimming, playing table tennis and jumping on the trampoline in between times. Jack also loved all the animals and delighted in feeding the pigs and visiting the guinea pigs, rabbits, chickens etc. His favourite animal was a gorgeous little brown calf which he nicknamed Moo, that skipped around in the field behind the house - all in all an idyllic pastoral scene! The interior of the house was just beautiful, fitted to the highest possible standards. I absolutely loved the kitchen and the bathrooms and it has given us lots of ideas for our own house. Chris and Jacky could not have been more thoughtful hosts, my father loves drawing and they kindly arranged for him to visit a friend of theirs in the village with my mother so that he could sketch the lovely old castle from their garden whilst enjoying a chat and a cup of coffee - he couldn't have been happier. My parents who are keen walkers also very much enjoyed the walks directly from the house. We had very nice trips to local places of interest such as Monpazier and other lovely old market towns - the highlight of our week probably being a trip to see the prehistoric cave paintings at Font de Gaume, (necessary to book ahead of the holiday). They were amazing. We very much hope to return to Le Manoir, it is a very special place.
Hi Chris and Jacky!! I just thought i'd drop you a line to say thank you very much for letting us stay in your gite. We had a great time there and think it provided absolutely everything you need when you travel with a baby! We really appreciated the babysitting as well and the delicious dining experience! Hope your photo shoot went well and we will be buying the magazine in February! Take care and thanks again
