The Manoir proved to be the house of character we expected. Your house was comfortable and easy to manage, with some very interesting decorative items such as the collection of old tins. Then there were the nesting swallows in the barn and the Lizard Orchids growing wild along the track and road-side which added wildlife interest to the fine flowery garden setting, while the view of Roque St Christophe across the valley was very impressive.
The location provided us with easy access to numerous nearby sites to visit including Lascaux IV with its extraordinary cave-art, the Maison Forte de Reignac built into the high cliff walls, and the town of Sarlat with its distillery and walnut factory as well as the famous market.
We are most grateful to you both not only for being excellent and amiable hosts but also for your help in dealing with the car repair problem we encountered. We also particularly appreciated seeing the old Leicester v Millwall football matchday programme from Paul's collection.
The Table de Moustier restaurant in Le Moustier village was an easy stroll away and we promptly made it our regular dinner venue. Both Eveline and Jean Claude provided excellent service and an imaginative, creative cuisine, including specially prepared menus, which we greatly appreciated.
Overall we greatly enjoyed our stay at Le Manoir which fully met our expectations, although the weather was mixed in early June, with some beautiful sunny blue skies albeit interspersed with some rainy days.

We really enjoyed every minute of our stay in the Haybarn, a beautiful French Gite with lots of originality We have just about come back own to earth... It was pouring with rain when we landed at Leeds Bradford Airport...a total contrast to what we left behind! I must admit I was a little emotional when we took off from Bergerac this morning! We will certainly be back!

Just back from a week’s stay in the Tobacco Barn. The gite worked perfectly for us and my elderly mother. Philippa and Paul were very welcoming and helpful with lots of information about the area. Location was great, 5 minute walk for fresh bread with great views of the Roc. The gite was well equipped and clean with lovely comfy beds. Planning our next trip already.

This is a cute and comfortable property. The location was great for seeing lots that the Dordogne Valley has to offer. The hosts were friendly and helpful. We prepared most of our own meals, and found the kitchen to be well-equipped. The double beds were a bit small for us, but no major complaints. We would recommend to friends.

The Haybarn is a cosy little gite with its own sun terrace with a barbecue and views of the well maintained swimming pool and of the Roque St Christophe. The gite is well equipped and the gifts of local wine and home made walnut cake were thoughtful and well received.
Paul and Philippa are great hosts, always available to provide help and advice on destinations and best routes.
Thank you for a lovely holiday.

We had a great week staying at the Roque Terrace. The gite had everything you could want including a comfortable bed. (Always important to us!) Lovely quiet area but within reach of many good sights. You must visit Sarlat and the Roque St Christophe of course! The owners were very friendly and informative and Phillipa makes a superb walnut cake! Enjoyed every minute!

What a wonderful holiday. Roque Terrace is a lovely gite in a fabulous location. It is extremely comfortable and is equipped with everything you need. The pool is super, perfect for a cooling dip after a busy day sightseeing.
The view of the Roque St Christophe is ***, when the visitors have gone and the flood lights come on you can sit on the terrace and believe the light show is just for you.
Philippa and Paul are wonderful hosts doing everything they can to ensure that you have a great holiday. We had such a good time we extended our stay by three days! On our final evening we watched the international space station fly over a prehistoric monument while listening to roaring stags - what more need I say.

Philippa and Paul are the cl***c friendly and helpful hosts. Their group of villas are quiet, picturesque and comfortable. Our villa had a tremendous view across to the Roque St Christophe with the setting sun was memorable. Their suggestions for places to visit were all excellent and interesting.
The knowledge of local culinary sources and restaurants was out of this world. When they offer to book you in to the local restaurant for you first night do NOT refuse. If like us, whom enjoy excellent food, you will book again and again. The chef at the Table du Moustier cooks exquisite food and the wine list is to die for with local wines.
In the area also do not miss the L’auberge du Coq in Fleurac. The owner is a Michelin star chef who decided to move away from large hotel to run his own place.
The area is spectacular with places to visit ie Lascaux 4 you must not miss (buy the tickets on line so you do not have to queue), Baynac and Castlenaud plus the gardens of the Gardens of Marquessac. You will soon fill a week and have a list to return to Philippa and Paul’s Les Manoir Les Granges for another year or two holiday.

This was our second stay at Le Manoir and we enjoyed it as much as the first time. La Roque Terrace was clean and comfortable. There is lots to do in the surrounding area or you can simply relax and use the (very clean) pool. Paul and Philippa are very helpful and friendly hosts and gave us some very good suggestions of where to go and where to eat out.
The Boulangerie and local restaurant are within easy walking distance and both were very good.
I am sure we will be returning.
