The Aquitaine/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.


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.

"Parents, Pets & Teenagers"

Summer 2013 was a return visit to La Petite Maison, this time traveling by road & air from the UK.
Our welcome from the resident proprietors was very warm and all our questions were met with prompt clear responses reinforced by the welcome pack. The best icebreaker of all was the evening barbecue held on the second night following our arrival which gelled families across the age ranges.
We knew what to expect from our accommodation, having previously stayed in 2012, and were delighted with the several improvements.
Le Manior is situated within easy walking distance of St Marcel-du-Perigord, the local village, with Laline on the River Dordogne, handy for the supermarket shopping, a short drive away.
The teenagers were well catered for with the large pool on site and canoeing on the Dordogne. The patio area and small garden were fenced in to keep the dog from straying.

"Relaxing, private and delightfully presented"

We booked a fairly last minute week at La Petite Maison, one of the properties at Le Manoir de St Marcel. Directions were precise and we were at the property within forty minutes of landing at Bergerac. The property is well presented and equipped, with lots of sunny privacy. The welcome pack is a lovely touch and much appreciated. The pool is exceptional, and Peter and Nancy are excellent hosts, perceptive to the amount of interaction the clients want or need! Everything you need to recharge and revive your love of France.

"Remote so get ready to take on the narrow twisty roads!"

I could not believe the roads we travelled to get to the house, you would need to be an accomplished driver to take them on. The house was quite dark as was surrounded by trees. My bedroom and the chi… More
