In a small hamlet on the banks of the Dordogne river, just a short bike ride from one of the region’s most loved Saturday morning markets, Manoir La Grande is a stunning house and charming cottage set in the most beautiful grounds with river views, a gorgeous swimming pool and such character all around you.

Located close to Bergerac and well positioned for visiting Saint-Émilion and Bordeaux, this is a jewel of a family home whether you’re wishing to experience some of southern France’s finest wine appellations or simply spend valuable time with loved ones. The traditional manor house dates back to the late 18th century and features so many original features from marble floors and exposed stone walls to high beamed ceilings. You can sense the manoir’s heritage as you relax in one of the two salons with a perfect blend of antique and modern furnishings or feast by the roaring fire and antique grandfather clock in the dining room, all with French doors leading out to the glorious gardens.

Yet there are so many contemporary touches too, especially since the house’s renovation in recent years. The kitchen has been completely re-done to please the keenest of cooks whilst the restful bedrooms feature wool carpets, Bluetooth speakers and new en suite bathrooms. We especially love the top floor suite with its super king-size bed and freestanding bath alongside its own lounge with a Smart TV, kettle, mini-fridge and views down to the Dordogne river.

A French country cottage set within the gardens adds the option of two further bedrooms alongside a modern kitchen and a light-filled living-dining room with an original Perigordian fireplace, the true heart of the home. A vine-covered terrace is a wonderful spot for breakfast looking out to the lawns and fruit trees - there’s ample figs, peaches, plums, apples and pears to pick throughout the summer.

Indeed, the two acres of mature grounds are glorious with ancient trees, a wildflower terrace overlooking the Dordogne and a picture-perfect swimming pool surrounded by climbing roses, jasmine and lavender. There are so many places for a quiet coffee or lively al-fresco meals as well as an outdoor bar, games room, a trampoline and football goal.

Surrounded by forests, vineyards and of course the river, make the most of the manoir’s bikes and follow the river road to the nearest village, shop and café-bar, only 2km away. Also within a short cycle or drive is historic Sainte-Foy-la-Grande, a picturesque bastide town resting on the banks of the Dordogne with one of the region’s biggest and best markets.

Find good walking and hiking routes direct from the house or discover the landscapes by canoeing along the Dordogne. Head further afield to explore yet more archetypal villages such as Issigeac, Eymet and Monpazier, visit wonderful wineries and dine out in restaurants from rustic bistros to Michelin starred establishments serving the finest French cuisine from this alluring region.

Set in a small hamlet just metres from the Dordogne river, Manoir La Grande is ideally positioned between Bergerac and Bordeaux, a fantastic location for exploring this wonderful region.

Gaze down to the Dordogne river from your lawned garden terrace and watch fishing boats, kayaks and swans glide by – only a road separates the manoir’s grounds from the banks of the river.

Make the most of the manoir’s bikes and cycle to local villages and towns or hop in the car for a short drive. The nearest village, under 2km away, has a useful small supermarket and café-bar. It’s also known for its firework production – if staying in mid-July then be sure to find a perfect spot on the village’s bridge over the Dordogne and watch one of the most spectacular firework displays.

Both Port-Sainte-Foy and Sainte-Foy-la-Grande are around 4km by bike or car where you will find a wider range of amenities including restaurants and larger supermarkets as well as canoeing and kayaking opportunities. It’s a joy to spend time in historic Sainte-Foy-la-Grande, a picturesque bastide town on the banks of the Dordogne with one of the best and biggest weekly markets in the region and also home to an atmospheric Marché Nocturne every week on summer evenings in July and August. On non-market days you can appreciate the town’s charm as you admire its timbered houses, medieval lanes and characterful squares.

Issigeac, about 40km away, is a picture-postcard worthy village with a brilliant Sunday morning market whilst other idyllic villages include Eymet and, a little further afield, Monpazier (66km), classified as one of France’s prettiest villages. Duras is another gem within easy reach, part of the Lot et Garonne where you will find yet more undulating scenery close to the Dropt river.

Manoir Bijoux is also within easy reach of Bergerac, about half an hour by car. Enjoy a ride on a traditional Gabarre boat along the Dordogne, then stop off in a charming café terrace for a relaxing lunch. There is so much to learn about Bergerac’s wine heritage – visit the Maison des Vins in the heart of the town or spend time visiting the surrounding vineyards and wineries including the well-known Château de Monbazillac and its sweet white wines.

Saint-Émilion, only 36km away, is a must-see not only for its enchanting hilltop village but also its vineyards which are listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site. Or spend time in the exciting city of Bordeaux (70km), home to grand buildings, many excellent restaurants, the impressive Garonne river and of course wines that are known throughout the world.

Region

The pace of life in the Dordogne is languid, laid back and positively infectious. Relax in bucolic beauty as you drift along the Dordogne River, or wander among the forests and hillside of the Périgord Natural Park.

The foodie scene too, is a relaxed affair. Take your time over your lazy lunches of local duck, black truffles and goats cheese. If you’re feeling energetic, you can even hunt for them yourself. The wine here is second to none, with infamous grapes like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Chenin Blanc all having a huge presence here.

The Dordogne is also brimming with history. Castles and chateaux are scattered throughout the region, among the enchanting medieval villages. History of an altogether more ancient sort can also be explored in the incredible prehistoric cave drawings of Lascaux and Grotte de Rouffignac.

This is a wonderful location where families can enjoy quality time together whilst staying in this picturesque part of France with the Dordogne, Gironde and Lot-et-Garonne regions waiting to be explored.

So close to the banks of the Dordogne river, there are of course canoeing and kayaking opportunities nearby and a little beach for paddling in Sainte-Foy-la-Grande. A boat trip on a traditional Gabarre vessel is a lovely way to tour the river through Bergerac.

Near Bergerac you will also find a go-karting track, a waterpark and a charming place called Port Miniature where you can hire little boats on a small lake. Children seeking adventure can try out the tree-top adventure park, AccroZarbres, with a range of activities just north of Bergerac.  

If staying in July or August, look out for the spectacular re-enactments of the Battle of Castillon that usually take place on Friday and Saturday evenings in the village of Castillon-la-Bataille, around half an hour away.

As well as long family walks, horse-riding and plenty of cycling routes, the Dordogne also offers a wealth of fairytale châteaux, historic caves and undulating landscapes of woodland, hills and vineyards. Yet for a complete change of scene, head west past Bordeaux and spend time by the sandy beaches and dunes on the Atlantic at Arcachon Bay or perhaps the popular surfing spots around Lacanau on the Médoc peninsula.

Owner Profile

  • How long have you owned the property?

We bought the property in December 2019 and moved to France in January 2020.

  • What was it about the property that you first fell in love with?

This is a difficult one, this was the first property we viewed in France and it really was a ‘coup de coeur’ or love at first sight! We love the history of the Manoir, its classic stone walls, huge open fireplaces and other original features, but also adore the views of the Dordogne river, vineyards and forests that surround the estate, the beautiful grounds and of course, the stunning pool and warm French sunshine!

  • Are there any interesting stories in its history?

The Manoir was built in 1790 so if the walls could talk… We are only the 4th owners of the estate which was in the same French family for more than 150 years. Since then it has been American, Australian and British owned. During the 1970s it is rumoured that an American CIA agent and spy lived here and some of the vintage security cameras that were installed are still in situ. More recently, the Manoir fell into a state of disrepair and reputedly, animals such as goats used to roam the house while the owner lived in what is now a walk in wardrobe. Over the past 5 years though, the place has been lovingly restored to its former glory, keeping original features in place but adding modern luxuries to make a warm and inviting space to spend time. 

  • Have you ever had any famous guests staying?

We try to make all our guests feel like ‘lords of the Manoir’ but we did have a very famous and glamourous French TV presenter stay here last year with her TV producer boyfriend.

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

- Must do? Explore the Dordogne river by canoe. Start upstream from Pessac sur Dordogne and paddle gently back to base for a couple of hours to build up an appetite before taking a leisurely lunch on the quayside overlooking the river at Palma Nova Restaurant.

- Must eat? … Local duck, foie gras, cheeses, walnuts and ceps mushrooms but whatever you eat, it should ABSOLUTELY be accompanied by a glass or 2 of our world famous Bordeaux and Bergerac wines! 

- Must see? Visit the Saturday market in Ste Foy La Grande for shopping and ‘people watching’. It was voted the best market in the whole of France a few years ago.

  • What insider tip would you pass on about the property or the area?

On a clear night, lay on a sun lounger by the Manoir pool with a glass of local wine in hand and gaze up at the millions of stars. With zero light pollution it is an incredible spectacle, you often even see shooting stars!

  • Stunning mansion

    on 20/10/2022

    Le Manoir is a stunning mansion, bringing together the top quality of a luxury and the warmth of a cosy family home. We highly recommend this place.

  • Perfect

    on 16/09/2022

    The geographical location of the mansion is perfect, quite central and allows you to visit the whole region. Magical stay!

  • Perfect way to relax

    on 09/02/2022

    The rooms were all cosy and beautiful in their own unique way. Major plus points for the large beds and softest sheets ever. We sat by the pool which was wonderful, with comfortable sun beds, large clean pool and drinks in the bar to cool off. A perfect way to relax. On days that the weather wasn't great, we visited the neighbouring towns, went to antique stores (there are a bunch of great ones on the way to Saint-Émilion) and went canoeing on the Dordogne. To sum it all up, the house is beautiful, the location is ideal 10/10 would recommend!

  • Wonderful

    on 09/02/2022

    We spent a wonderful 2 weeks holidaying at Manoir La Grande which is a perfect place for a family. It is well equipped with a beautiful terrace to enjoy meals outside with a big garden and stunning pool.

  • Outstanding

    on 09/02/2022

    The rooms are outstanding with super comfortable beds and amazing bathrooms. After cycling through vineyards, canoeing on the Dordogne or visiting beautiful local villages, the day ends relaxing by the beautiful pool, surrounded by lavender or under the big trees in the garden.

  • Faultless

    on 10/07/2021

    The house is incredibly stylish but in a homely and comfortable way with beautiful décor and furnishings throughout. The peaceful pool area is surrounded by lavender so the scent follows you as you have a dip. The local wines of course are amazing! It’s in a great location to explore the region - Bordeaux, Bergerac and St Emilion are all close by. All in all, faultless and we loved it.

  • Beautiful and classic

    on 11/07/2020

    The house is beautiful, classic, with large garden and great swimming pool. We really enjoyed the peace!”
