Overview

Wedding Venue Exclusive Recommended Pool Ideal for Kids Walk to Village

Set amongst the undulating landscapes of the Lot-et-Garonne, with stunning views of the surrounding orchards, fields and wild woods, Manoir des Cèdres is a beautiful holiday home in this picturesque region.

The owners have lovingly restored their Manoir, including a 400-year-old pigeonnier, with sensitivity and style, retaining so many traditional features such as exposed stonework and ancient wood beamed ceilings with contemporary décor and design. Every comfort has been considered from 100% Egyptian cotton linen in each of the five en-suite bedrooms to a Smart TV and incredibly well-equipped kitchen plus plenty to entertain the family such as the brilliant computer games area with its own screen and console. 

Outside you can admire the amazing vistas from the exquisite swimming pool or simply enjoy a glass of local wine from the south-west facing terrace as you look out to the cacophony of green fields and orchards around you. The gardens are vast and include a 400 year old Cedar tree dating back to when the Manoir was first built as well. You'll also find a ruined watermill by the stream that leads to the River Lot. As evening falls, prepare a barbecue with goods from the local market as you gather in the evening for wonderful meals on your impressive terrace under the starry sky. 

Alongside the Manoir, just across from the drive, is the Cottage Des Cèdres, formerly a barn which has been coverted into a charming three bedroom cottage with its own enclosed gardens and private pool. For 15 guests or more the cottage is included in the rental price or it can be rented separately. The owners also live on site with their friendly dog and tend to their surrounding beautiful grounds. They can cook you amazing meals if you wish, sampling some the most local and delicious produce around.

You can wander through the plum and kiwi orchards to the local village where you will find a couple of bakeries for your morning pastries, a little supermarket and a café serving lunch daily in July and August plus a glorious beach on the banks of the River Lot where you can swim and hire boats in the summer months. Explore further afield to idyllic hilltop villages which come alive in the summer evenings with night markets serving amazing food and drinks. This area is well known not only for the delicious fruit but also some of France’s most famous vineyards where you can sample the fine wines of the region.

Hire bikes in the local village, play golf or go horse-riding through the magnificent countryside or simply explore some of France’s Plus Beaux Villages such as Pujols and Monflanquin or cross the border to Dordogne to discover some gems such as Monpazier, Issigeac and beautiful Bergerac, all within an hour.

That said, with such glorious views (you may even spot deer or falcons from your terrace), you don’t have to travel far from the house to be amazed by this captivating area.

Located in the Lot-et-Garonne region, you are surrounded by fruit orchards, cedar trees, fields, sunflowers and wild woods. Local wildlife on the estate and beyond include deer, wild boar, rabbits, hares, eagles and other birds of prey. At the end of the estate there's a ruined watermill by a stream which leads to the River Lot.

You can wander down the nearby road or through the valley via the kiwi and plum orchards to the local village where you can pick up your breakfast croissants and bread, a small supermarket, delicatessen, two boulangeries and a café for your morning coffee and they also serve lunches daily in July and August. You can also find some wonderful local produce at the weekly market on a Wednesday morning.

There is also a village beach on the River Lot where you can hire canoes, pedalos and motorboats in the summer months (late June to early September) and a sandy area from which you can swim, sectioned off from the boats.

There are further facilities in the town of Sainte-Livrade-sur-Lot (10km) such as a large supermarket. Follow the river further east towards the ancient bastide town of Villeneuve-sur-Lot (20km) and keen hikers can then follow the hilly route south to the picturesque hilltop village of Pujols (20km), noted as one of France’s most Plus Beaux Villages. Penne D’Agenais (31km) with its impressive architecture is also worthy of a visit in this beautiful region and it’s worth visiting Agen (34km), an interesting French town which is the most important in this region.

As well as summer boats and bike hire in the nearby village, there are plenty of activities on offer in this area. Golf lovers can tee up at Golf Barthe (12km), just ten minutes by car whilst there is an excellent horse-riding centre a little further near Saint-Pierre-Sur-Dropt (42km). Kids will love visiting the local farm just a ten minute drive away or head further south to Parc Walibi amusement park (43km) near Agen. 

In July and August you can explore the night markets in charming local villages where local food is sold and cooked for you by local artisans with live music and plenty of drinks.   This area is of course wonderful for some of France’s most famous vineyards where you can sample and buy some excellent wines. Not forgetting the amazing fruit that is grown in the region (as well as on the estate); the local plums, Pruneaux D’Agen, are particularly delicious, especially when steeped in the local Armagnac.

Other noteworthy places to visit include Monflanquin (34km), another of France’s Plus Beaux Villages, a beautifully preserved bastide town full of medieval character with a great market on a Thursday or cross the border into the magical Dordogne department to Monpazier (55km), one of France’s most impressive and stunning villages. The beautiful city of Bergerac (64km) with its famous Maison des Vins can also be visited in a day, possibly combining the visit with the lovely village of Issigeac (50km) with its fantastic weekly market.

Event information

Manoir des Cedres 

This pretty whitewashed and blue shuttered Manoir is such a delightfully rustic location for your nuptials, set in the midst of a fertile fruit estate of plums and kiwis through which you can meander to the nearest village in this lovely part of Aquitaine. Treat yourselves before the reception to a champagne cruise on the nearby river - then celebrate beneath the lovely covered terrace by the pool and sloping lawns, dine under the gazebo for amazing views across orchards, fields and woods or feast on the front lawn beneath the ancient cedar trees bedecked with sparkling lights. If you are lucky, some of the resident wildlife might put in a brief but magical appearance.

Outside, there is space for a reception with up to 80 guests, either under the gazebo facing the fruit orchards and countryside or beneath a hired marquee in the grounds. On the front lawn, you could dine surrounded by the cedar trees and garlands of fairy lights.

Owner Profile

How long have you owned the property?
Since end of August 2017.

What was it about the property that you first fell in love with?
The amazing views, the sense of light and space which isn’t so typical of older French properties and the proximity to a thriving village.

Are there any interesting stories in its history?
We are told that the enormous cedar tree in our garden was planted at the same time as the Pigeoneer tower was built which was around 1666, over 350 years ago at the date of the Great Fire of London.

Have you ever had any famous guests staying?
Not yet – but all our guests are VIPs!

For anyone coming to stay is there anything in the surrounding area they should...

Really do?
Go to at least one of the many night markets in the area during July and August for an evening picnic barbecue sampling the wares of local producers. Keep a look out for billboards advertising the local festivals in the surrounding area. Hire a canoe and paddle on the river Lot which is just down the road. Or, for the more adventurous, how about a flight in a gyrocopter?

Really eat?
It’s all about duck in the South West but in the local area there is an abundance of locally grown fresh fruit – not forgetting the famous Pruneaux d’Agen.

Really see?
There are numerous mediaeval bastide hilltop villages within a short drive with quaint craft shops and cafes as well as fascinating architecture.

What insider tip would you pass on about the property or the area?
Relax and recharge with a good book and glass of chilled wine while the sun sparkles on your private swimming pool or just sit and drink in the sensational views, an undulating cacophony of green hues from the fields, orchards and wild woods surrounding the property. Bring your binoculars to spot deer, wild boar, hare, eagles and other birds of prey that live in our valley. Or linger over long, sociable meals on balmy evenings with friends and family and maybe a refreshing swim before retiring for the night.

Reviews

  • Fantastic family holiday!

    Posted by Karen on 30/07/2019

    We had a fantastic family holiday at Manoir Des Cedres.
    The Manoir is excellent, it is comfortable, spacious, full of character and charm. It was spotlessly clean and well equipped.
    The pool and terraces area are wonderful with lovely views. The owners were helpful and friendly without being intrusive. They helped with restaurant and taxi bookings, we had a great night out with them at one of the night markets.
    It is well placed for visiting many of the beautiful towns in the area.
    It is within walking distance of the local town and the river where you can go canoeing and paddle boarding, it also has a small cafe by the river beach.
    We would definitely recommend the Manoir for a daily holiday or celebration.

  • Best Holiday!

    Posted by John on 28/06/2019

    The house was very comfortable, spacious and well equipped. The owners kept everything beautifully and were attentive, helpful and friendly without being intrusive. The pool and outdoor space was superb and the views from the terrace were spectacular. We had a wonderful family holiday here. We enjoyed exploring the local area too although it was very hard to leave the pool and garden.

  • Beautiful, Peaceful, Elegant and Relaxing

    Posted by Megan D on 24/05/2019

    Manoir des Cedres is a beautiful property, with charm in abundance. The house has all the character and size of an old manor with all the comforts and luxuries of a modern property. It is located in the middle of rolling hills and orchards, where you are able to walk freely and a lit up pool that is well-kept and wonderfully refreshing to jump into on a warm day. The rooms have lots of character, particularly the master bedroom which originates from 1666 but has been refurbished with all the modern luxuries. The kitchen and living room are enormous and also well equipped (we were a group of 13 and never ran out of cutlery!) The owners, Liz and Martyn, were incredibly organised in the lead up to our trip, very quick to respond, and gave us a warm welcome upon arrival. They provided us with advice on local bakeries in the area, where to go for walks and the best wines in the region. They made it feel like it was our home for our (too) short stay there and genuinely made it a really lovely place to stay. I highly recommend this beautiful property and hope I can return there again soon.

  • Encore 1000 fois merci!

    Posted by Paul, Virginia, Pierre & Betty (the dog) on 18/09/2018

    We spent 2 fabulous weeks at Manoir Des Cedres. The location is truly special, peaceful, with great views but close to the village's amenities and the river's activities! Liz & Martyn are very generous hosts, from the welcome pack, quality kitchen items, nice French wines and top-end bed linen. They could not be more helpful but also very discrete. The property is charming, the surroundings beautiful and the hosts are such nice people. I can't recommend enough to anyone booking for a holiday in French Countryside. Forget Dordogne, and come to the Lot et Garonne! It's the new place to be!

  • Lovely holiday, great location!

    Posted by Iain and Fiona M. on 30/07/2018

    We had a lovely visit in July 2018, helped by excellent weather. The owners are a lovely couple recently moved to France from the Channel Islands. They live on the property (quite separate so no privacy issues!) and are truly friendly, kind and helpful, doing all they could to ensure we had a good holiday. The property is very well equipped and spacious but extra touches such as a welcome pack of local produce and a folder of local information and recommendations were signs that they are keen to go the extra distance to help keep visitors happy. There is a delightful walk through plum and kiwi orchards to the local village, which has 2 excellent bakeries (we did a croissant run every morning!), a well stocked village store and some banks with cash points. There is one very traditional French cafe with delicious food for lunch but outings for evening meals required a car journey. With a pretty garden, secluded barbecue deck, sparkling pool and gorgeous views of the valley with its orchards and sunflower fields, we didn't feel the need to venture away too often, but we did enjoy some day trips to castles, Bastide villages and other sections of the river Lot. We also loved the local village markets, and we especially enjoyed the evening markets for al fresco dining at La Parade and overlooking the river at Fongrave.

  • Stunning Property with Magical Views and Wonderful Hosts!

    Beautiful cottage on the edge of a village. Absolutely stunning views. The hosts were amazing, nothing was too much trouble, but then everything you need there. They offer a table d'hote which we sampled one evening, delicious, restaurant quality, would definitely recommend. We had a fantastic holiday which was made easy by the stunning setting and the great hosts. Cannot wait to go back.

  • Beautiful Accommodation with Splendid Views

    Posted by Shaun L. on 31/05/2018

    The location is beautiful, being close to a village but with beautiful views of the surrounding countryside. One can often see the local wildlife such as deer and falcons in the vicinity. The Cottage is fully equipped with a large bathroom and a patio. Great for privacy. The living area and kitchen are very well appointed with all modern appliances plus a wood burning stove. There are lots of small towns and cities in the area or if you just want to be there by the pool the owners will be sure to look after you.

  • A Peaceful and Relaxed Stay

    Posted by Inge D. on 15/04/2018

    This lovely accommodation has recently changed hands and we were the very first guests. The Cottage is very spacious and private with a lovely outside pool and a great view onto the plum trees and the surrounding landscape. The room we stayed in had a very comfortable bed with nice quality linen. The kitchen is well equipped and has an extra fridge stocked with drinks for the guests. The welcome basket and the few essentials to start with (milk, water, butter, marmalade...) were also a very nice touch. The new owners are marvellous hosts who made us feel at home from the moment we arrived. We enjoyed their table 'Hôtes in a most relaxing atmosphere and were amazed at the generous size of the plates and the drinks. Owners were always on hand to help or advise without intruding in any way on our privacy. This property has everything you need. Would highly recommend!
