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.
