Le Manoir De St. Marcel (All).
About the home
There are two pools (both fenced). A large 16m x 8m (58 ft x 26 ft) swimming pool with roman ends is situated on higher ground, out of earshot of the properties. Le Manoir has its own pool. For younger children there is a well equipped play barn and an outdoor play area with swings, climbing frames and slides. There is also a large games barn with a full size pool table, table tennis and a pinball machine. Walking and cycling, is available from the front door. Within a few miles all leisure pursuits are accessible, including canoeing, riding, tennis, light aircraft, micro-light flying and a good challenging nine hole golf course.
Le Manoir is ideally situated being within easy reach of Bergerac, Les Eyzies, Sarlat and Lalinde and yet has a quiet rural location, just off the beaten track. All the properties have satellite TV. French TV is available in La Porcherie & Le Manoir.
Solar heating has been installed in the main pool: - This heats the water to enable the pool to be used in comfort earlier & later in the season than otherwise. A common patio has been laid under an open roof. This has tables & chairs. All the properties retain their individual private BBQ's, but this offers an opportunity to mix.
You can use the Wi-Fi hotspot - No charge. - Home worker? - You don't need to take your leave: - Work from here!
All the properties are self contained and are situated around a grassy courtyard. Bed linen is included in the price.
Also included is a welcome pack, which provides the food items to "get you going." Additional occupancy is available in some properties.
The estate whilst being absolutely in the best location to visit all that the Dordogne has to offer you, is secluded. You can choose to keep to yourself, or mix with the maximum of 33 guests, knowing that your children are safe.
If you have any questions I would be delighted to answer, please contact me.

The Aquitaine / Dordogne / Dordogne region
The department of the Dordogne is in the Aquitaine region of south-west France (Le Manoir is approximately 60 miles inland from Bordeaux in an easterly direction). The Dordogne is famous for its wines such as Pecharment and Monbazillac; its food, including duck, foie gras and truffles. Exciting visits include the prehistoric caves at Lascaux and, of course, the Dordogne valley itself with its spectacular scenery and many dramatic and beautiful chateaux.
You will enjoy some of the best sights if you take a canoe down the Dordogne.
The Dordogne area is renowned for its long hot summers, the warm and pleasant weather usually extending from April to late October.
The Bergerac / St. Marcel du Perigord area
There is just so much to do in summer, it often overwhelms our guests, & they unwind by the swimming pool!
Your first Sunday will often be spent visiting the market at ISSIGEAC, a medieval bastide town which is beautiful in its own right, but with the added attraction of a vibrant Sunday Market.
The kids will love Castelnaud, perched high over the River Dordogne: It offers the them a medieval war museum.
Nearby is my favourite Chateau; Chateau Milandes; The home of Josephine Baker, an American Cabaret artist who adopted a child from each continent. This is where they lived, & the chateau is a museum about her.
There is so much that you will not want to miss! – Where to stop!
You must visit Domme, & Sarlat.
Finally, I nearly forgot! – If you are here in July & August the Marche Nocturnes are good fun.
They are a bit like a mediaeval banquet. – You sit at communal tables & choose food from the many stalls offering cooked local produce.
