Tranquillity, Comfort and a Degree of Magnificence


Le Manoir, known locally as “le petit chateau,” is in the small hamlet of Doumailhac, nestling just a kilometre from the village of La Chapelle Montbrandiex, in the centre of the Périgord-Vert Natural Park.

Outside, the rear terrace offers views across the garden and adjoining countryside, a lovely outdoor space on which to dine/barbecue or enjoy a glass watching the sunsets. In the evening enjoy stargazing, the lack of light pollution means the Milky Way is often visible. Beyond the large rear garden is the walled/fenced pool with sun loungers.

The large heated salt water swimming pool, which is open in June, July, August and September-depending on the weather, provides the perfect place to relax. In the heat of the summer float on the pool with a cool drink and listen to the birds singing. There are sun loungers available to accommodate all the guests.

In the barn there is a table tennis table, badmington and darts, as well as a selection of bikes for guests to use, explore the area, discover the wildlife and birds or try your hand at fishing.



This beautiful modern Kitchen has its original bread oven and flagstone floor. It is also well equipped with a large range cooker, two dishwashers, large fridge freezer, large larder, microwave, etc. The large dining table is perfect for breakfast get togethers. The rear terrace, just outside the kitchen, has a large dining table for al fresco dining.
