Petit Manoir is within a short drive of some of the most beautiful villages, vineyards and historic sites in South West France. The principal towns of Villenueve sur Lot, Agen and Bergerac are all within easy driving distance, whilst the smaller bastide villages nearby provide all the essentials and offer weekly markets and fêtes bursting with local produce. Particularly lovely is Issigeac's Sunday market, especially when followed by the fabulous Sunday Brunch buffet at Chez Allain, which has an enclosed terrace with a raised pond and garden area little ones enjoy.
More family fun and even watersports can be found at nearby riverside beach (sandy), which is just a ten minute drive away., and at the 'Magic Cauldron' eco farm, named after the pot in which the mohair of 250 angora goats is farm dyed! Little ones will love making friends with the animals which they can touch and feed including lambs and kids, goats, sheep, chickens, ducks, turkeys, large angora white rabbits, highland cattle and two of the largest grubbiest pigs ever seen! You can also try your hand at cheese or bread making.
