The Area

On the border of the Dordogne and southern Charente, between Villebois Lavalette, Aubeterre sur Dronne and Chalais, this Manoir is set outside of the town of Montmoreau. The sweeping drive leads to a pigeonnier tower, being the main part of a 13th century house which was added to in the 1800s, all in a garden full of shrubs, flowers and mature trees.

The beautiful surrounding countryside can be admired whilst relaxing on the terrace and by the large private solar-heated swimming pool. With characteristic fireplaces, ornate plaster work, high ceilings and a stone staircase, the Manoir has been restored by the English owners.

It is situated near all the famous caves of the Dordogne, near the river Dronne, less than an hour’s drive from Saint Emilion, known for its wine and cognac, Bordeaux or chateaux such as, Villebois Lavalette or Chalais, are all worth a visit.

Location: 2km from Montmoreau St Cybard (shops, cafés, restaurants and local horse riding), 13km from Villebois Lavalette (château and market hall), 18km from Aubeterre sur Dronne (river, beach, canoeing, restaurants, shops and golf) and 60km from Cognac (distilleries, boat trips, golf, restaurants and shops).
