Overview

Wedding Venue Pool Ideal for Kids Pets Welcome

This exclusive 18th century manor house, built out of handsome local stone, is set in the heart of Dordogne, close to one of the region’s most beautifully preserved market towns, Sarlat-la-Canéda.

In a secluded spot surrounded by 85 acres of parkland and forests, it’s no wonder Matt Damon and Ben Affleck chose to stay here whilst filming one of their latest movies shot in the Dordogne. No doubt they also appreciated its authenticity and charm with wood-beamed ceilings, exposed stonework and other Perigordian characteristics alongside highly rated facilities.

Available all year round, staying here guests feel like they are experiencing the real Dordogne with glorious views of the Périgord Noir from the manoir’s elevated setting. Yet so many contemporary comforts have also been discreetly added such as Smart TVs and Blu-ray/DVD players, a fitness and yoga room and a brilliant cinema loft with a TV projector, surround sound system as well as a PlayStation and extensive film library – we expect the movie stars’ new film to be included soon!

You will feel so well looked after too – croissants and freshly baked bread are delivered each morning and maid service is included six days a week. A cook can be arranged to serve up delectable Périgord feasts and additional services that can be organised include a personal trainer or tennis coach, a masseur as well as assistance with tailor-made tours to make the most of your stay across this fantastic region.

Outside there is so much space for relaxation and play. The heated swimming pool has been perfectly positioned to offer privacy yet you can still see the glorious Dordogne valleys as you lounge on the terrace or enjoy a spot of lunch prepared in the pool house. Wander past fruit trees to reach the all-weather tennis court, have a fun game of ping-pong, set up the badminton net or explore further afield through the woodland trails. Century old trees are dotted across the vast lawns, as are outdoor lounge areas for a moment of solitude. The al-fresco dining terrace and wood-fired barbecue is a fine place to gather for evening meals with family and friends discussing your daily adventures across the wonderful grounds and beyond.

Just 10km away is the exquisite and historic town of Sarlat, well-known not just for its beauty but also its gastronomic delights across many excellent restaurants and atmospheric markets. The Saturday morning Farmer’s Market is not to be missed with local specialities including duck, walnuts, foie gras and winter truffles.

Spend days canoeing along the Dordogne river, visiting some of France’s ‘Plus Beaux Villages’, admiring historic castles or exploring underground caves. Cycle or walk through the countryside, appreciate the scenery on horse-back or view the magnificent landscapes from a hot-air balloon. No matter how you spend your time, Manoir des Truffes enjoys a picture-perfect setting in this picturesque part of south-west France.

Set in 85 acres of woodland on a hilltop, Manoir Des Truffes enjoys a stunning setting in the heart of the Dordogne region, just a 10-minute drive from the enchanting town of Sarlat.

Follow the winding and sometimes steep country road to the gates of this glorious home and be amazed by the vast estate of lawns and forests with sweeping views of the surrounding countryside. Follow trails through the woodland whether jogging or just enjoying long walks on your doorstep.

Despite this remote location, the famous town of Sarlat-la-Canéda is just 10km away. This exquisite town dates back to medieval times and has been perfectly preserved. As well as four large supermarkets for all your essentials, there are so many wonderful markets selling regional delights, the most well-known being the popular Saturday morning market in the main square. The town is also renowned for its restaurant scene with a great choice of places to eat from traditional and authentic restaurants to Michelin starred establishments. Local gastronomic specialities include duck, truffles, walnuts, cèpes and of course foie gras.

Other highlights of the Périgord Noir region include historic castles such as Château de Beynac, Château des Milandes and Château de Fénelon, combined with some of the Dordogne’s idyllic riverside villages including Domme, La Roque-Gageac and Beynac-et-Cazenac, all within half an hour by car. Hiring canoes or kayaks along the Dordogne river is another memorable experience or hop on one of the historic Gabarres for a relaxing cruise down the river.

Further north, Montignac (20km) and Lascaux are home to some of the first prehistoric paintings – a visit to the Lascaux IV International Centre is a must to learn all about the fascinating art. Around an hour away, the caves of Padirac (63km) are also outstanding, a natural wonder of stalactites and stalagmites which can be visited partially by boat. Closer to home, the picturesque Eyrignac Gardens (16km) are a great place for all ages with yet more amazing views of the landscapes of the Périgord Noir.

Golf-lovers have the Domaine de Rochebois (a 9-hole course) around 19km away or a choice of 18-hole golf courses near Souillac or La Bugue about half an hour by car. Horse-riding through the Dordogne countryside is another popular pursuit or admire the stunning landscapes from a hot-air balloon ride for a truly spectacular experience.

The Dordogne is a wonderful part of France for families with children of all ages.
As well as a private tennis court, badminton net, boules and croquet in the gardens, there are great trails through the estate’s woodland for jogging, walking or just exploring.

The historic castles and caves of this region will especially enchant younger guests. Visit some of the most famous Dordogne châteaux within a half hour drive such as Château de Fénelon, Château des Milandes and Château de Beynac. The fascinating caves at Padirac are also amazing – explore this natural wonder with a special tour, partially by boat.

The Gardens of Eyrignac will also appeal to families with activity books given out to children in various age groups from five to thirteen years of age. Also look out for Monday evening family picnics in the gardens with music, dancing and lighting in the height of the summer.

Hiring canoes or kayaks along the Dordogne river is one of the most memorable experiences of this region or simply enjoy picnics in idyllic spots along the riverside, perhaps using ingredients bought from lovely local markets, including in Sarlat. Hot-air balloon rides and horse-riding are other lovely ways to appreciate the scenery of the Périgord Noir.

La Bugue, around half an hour away, also has a wealth of activities for children from mini-golf and an aquarium to themed attractions as well as more canoeing opportunities, this time along the Vézère.
