We (party of 10 girls) had the most perfect week of vacation at Manoir La Breuille. The house is absolutely beautiful, more stunning than what the pictures show – both interior as exterior! The outside + pool area was were we spent most of our time since it was spacious and very inviting with lots of seating area as well as a bbq and pingpong table. But what really made our stay so great was La Breuille’s host, Barrie. From the very start of our stay he was extremely generous and helpful (even welcoming us with a bottle of bubbles!). We were able to come to him with any of our questions as well as for tips and advice for fun stuff to do around Montmoreau – the village which is only a short walk away from the house. I would highly recommend staying at this amazing house for a wonderful vacation with lots of fun and beautiful sightings in this area of France. We look back at a very special week.

Barrie and Graham were extremely welcoming, Barrie went over and above – on our first day even bringing us a glass of wine and some lunch as we were relaxing by the pool, and on our last night letting us tuck into his fresh bread to help cure the following days hangover. We only stayed a few days and as it was our first time in this part of France we came underprepared on all fronts having arrived very late at night. Barry did everything he could to fill any holes in our plans. Myself and Lauren are lured back by both the people and the Chateaux. The pictures are stunning but it’s even better in real life. We had an amazing weekend! If you’re staying in this part of France it is a must visit – even if stopping for only a few nights, and a perfect spot for a small – medium sized wedding.                                                          Oliver Green, Croydon, UK.

Tranquility and good treatment

What was initially a problem, the owner only spoke English (me, French and Spanish), thanks to his attention, kindness and sympathy, step to the back It was a pleasure to stay and share some conversation, as we could You are eager to return!!

Everything was perfect

A piece of heaven on earth.

Everything! Barry & Mike are amazing hosts, very welcoming. The manor was amazing, great attention to detail, so relaxing & very comfortable. Nothing was too much trouble. Lots of games equipment indoor & outdoors for all the family to enjoy. Pool was great & lots of sun loungers & other sun traps to sit in & admire the views. The evening we arrived we actually drove past it & all 4 of us said “oh wouldn’t it be lovely if we were staying there” our wish was granted, & we shall return again ❤ Ciara Cole, UK                               June 2019 “Traditional, homely accommodation with a smile”

We had a really lovely stay at the Manoir Le Breuille. The owners are both British and clearly have lots of experience in the hospitality industry as they made us feel very welcome and comfortable during our stay. We stayed here as we were going to a wedding close by and we were driven there and back in one of their vintage cars – a thoughtful and special way to travel! A TV was brought through for us to watch the World Cup and breakfast/late night snacks were great. The local town has a great little bistro and a cafe/bar that are both well worth a visit.

Montmoreau in May!

5/5 Stayed May 2018 Margaret P.

A small group of women from the US traveled to France in late May. We booked the Manoir La Breuille for 4 days and had high expectations and neither the villa nor owner disappointed! The grounds and the home were charming and beautiful – maintained to perfection. The owner was welcoming, kind and so warm and generous. He shared stories of the estate’s history and was available for anything we needed. We all agreed we would return again in a heartbeat. My friends at home were jealous when they saw my many, many photos of the Manor.

“The hosts are just wonderful – we felt at home as soon as we walked in the door and the house is full of charm and character.”

“Excellent hosts. Thanks Barrie. Andrew and Penny, Woking”

“An attractive manor house but to accommodate 13 male adults the bedroom & bathroom arrangements were unusual but the owners went to the trouble of arranging the best possible configuration. Super heated pool in the garden and our hosts served an excellent fixed menu meal on the patio with coffee & liqueurs in the dining room. They even made space in the stable for all our bikes once the horse had been brought in.”
