A short stroll from the shops, restaurants and weekly market, Manoir Boutonniere is a historic house set in large grounds in a traditional Gironde village in the Bordeaux wine region, only a 20-minute drive from the beautiful vineyards of Saint-Émilion.

It feels like a step back in time as you enter Manoir Boutonniere via its impressive hallway with wonderfully tiled flooring and panelled walls. Wander through to the traditional salon and elegant dining room with its decorative fireplace and bar before kicking back in the TV lounge and reading room. A study allows you to work from home if you need to whilst the kitchen is fantastically equipped with modern appliances for family feasts using delicious seasonal produce from nearby colourful markets.

There are four spacious double bedrooms on the first floor, all with king or super king-size double beds and en suite bathrooms, whilst the top floor is home to four further doubles and two new bathrooms. Gather with friends outside to enjoy a bottle of Pomerol’s finest vintage as you relax in the garden with seating areas to the front and rear. Furthermore, after a round of boules, the summer house is a delightful spot for al-fresco meals on warm summer evenings.

Open the gated grounds and you are in the heart of the village opposite the church with a small supermarket, a highly regarded bakery, butchers, wine maker and several restaurants alongside a Friday morning market. You can visit Bordeaux, Périgueux and Libourne by train from the village’s station just a 15-minute walk away. For lazy days closer to home, stroll to the open-air swimming pool open on most afternoons in July and August, only 500m away near the banks of the River Isle.

Within a 20-minute drive, embrace the beauty of Saint-Émilion with its rich heritage, underground catacombs and incredible vineyards which are classified as a UNESCO World Heritage site. The wineries of Pomerol are also a short distance by car and even closer are the atmospheric markets of Coutras and Saint-Seurin-sur-l'lsle.

Experience the Sunday morning market in Libourne, enjoy a wealth of water-based activities by Lac des Dagueys and canoe along the Isle River near Montpon-Ménestérol. As well as spending the day in Bordeaux with its magnificent architecture, vibrant restaurant scene and wine-bars, soak up the heritage of Bergerac and take a river cruise along the Dordogne, one of the many beautiful rivers in this part of south-western France.

Oliver Approved

What you should know…

  • The village has a good range of amenities within walking distance and there are regular departures from its train station towards Bordeaux or Périgueux (as well as buses to Libourne). However, a car is still recommended to be able to fully appreciate this wonderful region.

Manoir Boutonniere is located in a traditional Gironde village around an hour north-east of Bordeaux, only 17km from Saint-Émilion. If not driving, fly into Bordeaux or Bergerac Airports, both just under an hour away by car, or arrive via the village train station which is a 15-minute walk away (with connections to Bordeaux Saint Jean for the TGV service to Paris Montparnasse).

Within walking distance you will find a highly regarded boulangerie alongside a supermarket, some good restaurants and pizzerias, a butchers and a local winemaker where you can sample wine. The village’s weekly market takes place on a Friday morning.

There is a park just a few minutes away on foot and an open-air swimming pool (open Tuesday to Sunday afternoons in July and August only) not far from the banks of the Isle River. Just down the road is a small amusement park with all sorts of activities that families will love.

In the heart of the Bordeaux wine region, a short distance from the vineyards of Pomerol (17km), there are many excellent vineyards and renowned restaurants across this part of south-western France. Embrace the beauty of the French countryside by following hiking or cycling trails and canoe along the Isle River near the riverside town of Montpon-Ménestérol (17km). Water-lovers can spend time by Lac des Nauves (9km) and Lac des Dagueys (20km) just north of Libourne with a variety of seasonal lakeside activities and watersports.  

Saint-Émilion (18km) is one of the main highlights of the region, a beautiful hilltop town with a rich heritage surrounded by vineyards that are classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The old town dates back to pre-historic times and as you stroll around you can admire Romanesque churches, pretty squares and fascinating underground catacombs. As well as its incredible vineyards, you will find many wonderful restaurants in and around Saint-Émilion.

Keen gastronomes should also visit the restaurants and lively Sunday morning market in Libourne (20km), one of the Gironde’s largest markets which takes place in the historic centre, or head to the colourful indoor market (three mornings a week). The twice-weekly market in Coutras (9km) is a popular event, as are the gourmand markets and other festivities that take place in the summer months. Another market that is worthy of a visit takes place in Saint-Seurin-sur-l'lsle (5km) on a Sunday morning, a great way to stock up on a wealth of delicious produce.

Bordeaux (62km) is a grand day out, only a 40-minute train journey from the village station, with its wine bars, vibrant restaurant scene, museums, historic buildings and riverside setting. Trains from the station also depart in the opposite direction towards the historic city of Périgueux (84km), taking less than 45 minutes.

Discover the banks of the Dordogne River near the historic market towns of Castillon-la-Bataille (23km) and Sainte-Foy-la-Grande (40km) or drive as far as Bergerac (52km) where you can take a river cruise on a traditional gabarre vessel as well as admire the town’s rich heritage and wineries.

Manoir Boutonniere is in the heart of a traditional village with a range of useful amenities within walking distance – get up early to fetch the morning croissants and fresh bread from the bakery and embrace the atmosphere of the market on a Friday morning.

Just outside the village there is a park less than 500m away, tennis courts and an open-air swimming pool (charges apply, it is usually only open summer afternoons in July and August, closed Mondays).    

Less than a 5-minute drive away there is a small amusement park with inflatables,  swimming slides, splash pool, water-based activities, tree-top adventures, trampolines, mini-golf and play areas alongside concerts and other events (open every day in July and August and occasional dates in school holidays).   

A little further afield, Lac des Nauves (9km) is lovely for lakeside walks, cycling and picnics. An inflatable water course is usually set up in the height of the summer alongside some nautical activities. Close to Libourne, Parc Aqualol (20km) is a large leisure park (usually open mid-May to very early September) which features a lakeside beach, inflatables on the ground and inflatable activities in the water (as always, age/height restrictions apply).

Water lovers also note that there is canoeing and kayaking near Montpon-Ménestérol, less than half an hour away, or perhaps you may simply prefer to sit back on a river cruise and admire the beautiful scenery along the Dordogne as you depart from Libourne.

Owner Profile

When did you become the owner? 
March 2022.

What was it about the property that you first fell in love with?
We had searched for years for a property on this bank of the Bordeaux wine region but nothing came close to this. Coming in through the blue cast iron gates and seeing this amazing Manor House, we were stunned as we walked up the steps to the front door and came across the most spectacular, ornate entrance hall. And then every room we entered felt like it had the most amazing story to it, and the number of original features was unbelievable, such as the painted ceiling in the salon. The scale of the house blew us away too - it just seemed to go on and on.

Are there any interesting stories in its history?
The house itself was one of the first 2 to be built in the village by 2 brothers who owned a profitable mill in the area. The other house is the town hall (La Mairie) which is just down the road. There have been interesting owners over the years, including a Duchess.

For anyone coming to stay, is there anything you suggest that they really…

Must do? 
Visit a Pomerol or Saint Emilion vineyard for a tour and wine tasting to get a real sense of the region. We can recommend the best local vineyards near the Manoir.

Must eat? 

Le Petit Queyrai is an excellent restaurant worth visiting in our village and just a short walk from the Manoir. On your way home, you could stop by one of the boulangeries in the village to pick up some excellent desserts (we recommend trying a religieuse)
- If we were to recommend just one restaurant near us, it would be Terrasse Rouge, which is located in the middle of the Pomerol vineyards and has a terrace allowing you an amazing view of the entire region.
- If you take a day trip to Bordeaux, head to Brasserie d’Orleans and try the côte de boeuf

Must see?
Visit the historic village of Saint Emilion, a UNESCO heritage site only 20 minutes drive from us. It is considered the heart of the Bordeaux wine region and has many things to see and experience.

What insider tip would you pass on about the property or the area? 
Our insider tip would definitely be the local markets. Our village one is every Friday morning just behind the church. A much larger one takes over the entire village of Saint-Seurin-sur-l'Isle every Sunday, which is less than a 5 minute drive away.

Reviews

  • Charming and Welcoming

    Created on 27/11/2023

    It was like taking a step back into an olde worlde era with Manoir Boutonniere’s grandiose style and feel! Charming and welcoming, and close enough to beautiful Saint Emillion driving through magnificent French countryside with views of the surrounding vineyards. Very helpful and responsive hosts who recommended restaurants in the area and also helped accommodate our toddler with a camp cot. Glorious home style lunches sipping local Bordeaux blends under the Magnolia trees!

  • Fantastic Manoir.

    Created on 01/08/2023

    Fantastic Manoir. It feels like a trip back to a grandiose past. Decorated in style and very comfortable. Huge rooms with private bathrooms, large dinning room, two living rooms, fantastic garden.

  • We loved our stay

    Created on 01/06/2023

    Beautiful chateau with huge rooms and living spaces in the heart of Bordeaux and Saint Emilion vineyards. The village is very pretty and had wonderful restaurants and shops for all our family. We loved our stay and cannot wait to visit again.
