About the location

Close to Bergerac airport, yet entirely secluded within its own private grounds, your home for the week will be in the manor house of an 18 acre estate, nestled between the rivers Lemance and Briolance.

You can expect to find the perfect countryside hideaway, complete with hiking, fishing, ponds, and swimming pools - along with plenty of hidden places to explore on the property.

If you would like to explore by bicycle, your hosts are there to arrange one for you, as the quiet country lanes and scenery can keep you occupied for hours. The village of Saint Front is just 2 minute walk away where you can go for some pastries or just to spend some time people watching.

Your well travelled hosts, Tas and Martyn, met 30 years ago on a train to Darjeeling, and have been traveling extensively together ever since. They have settled into their French home and fallen in love with the area - and they invite you to do the same!

Your accommodation will be in the manor house, which sleeps up to 12 in absolute luxury. It’s obvious that it was once the Master’s house, belonging to the main landowner in the village of Saint-Front-sur-Lemance, the moment you enter.

Tas and Martyn have lovingly restored it to its former glory with airy & light décor, exposed original stonework, high ceilings, and gorgeous garden views. There are also communal reception rooms for entertainment, swimming pools, a games room, British TV and a fireplace- you will be left wanting for nothing (aside from perhaps a longer stay)...
