Further details indoors

Le Manoir De St. Marcel is set-up to cater for families with children.

Your children can expect to meet other children.

We provide a safe secluded environment for them to play in, & they are made to feel very welcome.

Our local restaurant, just 2 minutes’ walk from your front door is unusual in that they provided genuine haute cuisine whilst remaining child-friendly.

Further details outdoors

Nestling in the tranquil heart of an estate of woodland & meadow. Far away from traffic & other dangers to children.

Tremendous location for all that Dordogne has to offer. Numerous leisure pursuits for all ages.

Large enough: During summer there will probably be other children for your children to play with.

Small Enough: You will know exactly who everybody is. It is not a Butlin's type environment.

* Games Barn with pool table, table tennis, & pinball.

* Play Barn: Your younger children will enjoy this large well equipped room.

Swings & slides outside.

* Stair Gates: In all properties except Le Pigeonnier.

* Swimming Pool: a spectacular, large solar-heated 18m x 8m pool.

Shallow “Roman Ends” especially suitable for tots!

* Baby-sitting by arrangement.

* Baby equipment available at no charge: - Choose from; Cots, highchairs, baby baths, baby bouncers, sterilizers, baby monitors, safety plug guards, blender, changing mat, toys, potty, steps, booster seat, & more!

Further details

Unlike the other properties here, Le Pigeonnier is on 3 floors, & does NOT have stair-gates, so is NOT suitable for toddlers.

Babes-in-arms are fine, as are an older child who may sleep on the bed-sofa.

There is an extra £50 charge for the third person on the bed-sofa.

Babies, of cousrse are free.

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.

"Always great"

We have been visiting Le Manoir for 15 years,at various times of the year, so we must love it! The property is situated near a lovely village in the most beautiful part of France. This year there was just two of us so we stayed in the Le Pigeonnier, but in the past, to accommodate family parties, we have stayed in the other gites; all full of character. A great welcome is always guaranteed from Peter and Nancy who do all they can to ensure that their guests have a wonderful stay, and are aware of the opportunities to enjoy the area. Le Manoir also seems to attract nice, friendly people who appreciate this fantastic place.

Thank you so much for your kind review.
Do hope to see you again in 2015.

"Great location in Dordogne"

We spent a fantastic week in Le Piggeonier. Quirky accommodation for two set over four floors made for a very comfortable stay, and we enjoyed lounging by the large pool. Excellent location for walking and cycling (hilly!) and convenient for a driving day trip to Bordeaux. Peter and Nancy were great hosts with lots of advice for local attractions. There is a superb restaurant in St Marcel du Perigord that is a short walk down a path across the grounds.

Many thanks for your review.
Nancy & I hope to meet you when you return from your 9 month cycling trip to Indonesia, when you will feel that our rolling country side is , in comparison, almost flat!

"Heel prettig verblijf"

We hebben een heel erg prettig verblijf gehad op Le Manoir. Wij zaten met twee volwassenen en een baby in Le Pigeonnier. De woning is ruim en gezellig. Het landgoed is ruim opgezet met veel groen. Wij waren er in een week met zeer veel zon; op het landgoed is voldoende schaduw te vinden en we konden lekker afkoelen in het zwembad. Zeker een aanrader!

"kindvriendelijk mini-landgoed met meerde huizen, op een heerlijke groene heuvel"

Bij Peter en Nancy hebben we op het laatste moment Le Pigeonnier voor 4 nachten kunnen huren voor onszelf en onze 4-jarige zoon.
Een erg leuk huisje, ruim genoeg voor 3 mensen (2 persoonsbed + slaapbank in de woonkamer. Het ligt op een kindvriendelijk mini-landgoed met meerde huizen, op een heerlijke groene heuvel, met veel bewegingsvrijheid voor de kinderen en een zwembad met omheining. Overal kun je wel een plekje voor jezelf vinden, in de schaduw of in zon. Ook is er dichtbij, op loopafstand, een goed restaurant. 's Avonds kun je bij Peter en Nancy stokbrood en croissantjes e.d. bestellen voor de volgende dag. Peter en Nancy zelf zijn erg gastvrij en behulpzaam. Om alle gasten verwelkomen organiseerden ze op zondagavond een barbecue. Een heerlijk plekje!
