The house

'Le Manoir' is very large and spacious, it is with good reason our clients call it “The Place with Space”. There are 8 large, light, airy and uncluttered bedrooms, all with their own individual bathrooms en suite and all with many interesting features, oak beams, great views etc. 'Le Manoir' offers large families or groups of friends a wonderful holiday venue. The property consists of an 18th century 'Masters House' which has been fully restored and extended. and stands in large gardens, grounds and woodlands. The house can accommodate up to 20 people in the eight large bedrooms. The whole house is fully centrally heating (hopefully not necessary!) and has a very efficient hot water system, so no cold showers!.

There are lots of terracing around the property with tables and chairs for "alfresco" dining etc. The kitchen is well equipped and there is a large barbeque on one of the terraces. Outside, there are several large terraced areas and a private swimming pool with sun terracing. The whole property is situated on top of a hill, with stunning views over the Lot-et-Garonne countryside.

This is a popular house for big groups who are seeking a relaxing holiday with family and friends in private, quiet surroundings.

Dear Karen and John,

I just wanted to take the time to thank you both for allowing us to spend such a beautiful two weeks at Chateau Perroterie.
Now that the long drive is over and we’ve all had time to complete the many loads of washing and get back to work it’s beginning to truly sink in just how much of a special place you have and just how much of a special time we had as a group.

As you know, the 7 children loved the place and are already referring to it as “their holiday house” and asking when we are going next as they want to play in the pool and look for Dave the cat. If only life were that easy!

Dear John,

All 18 members of our family, in age ranging from 5 to 83 years, keep happy memories on the wonderful week we spend last july in your charming and spacious chateau La Perroterie. Of course the beautiful wheather contributed to the living and dining outside on the terrace overlooking the pool and the friendly landscape where we found the lake for secret swimming excursions. We enjoyed the atmosphere of the heavy stone walls and squeaking wooden stairs and corridors leading to the comfortable sleepimg rooms upstairs. It has been a wonderful experience.

kind regards, Peter

Château Perroterie met daarnaast 'Le Manoir' waar wij logeren is een statig, prachtig, rustgevend en zeer ruim domein met een verbluffend uitzicht op de omliggende valleien en bossen. Wij komen hier al voor de 3de keer met onze familie en wij komen beslist nog terug !
Dergelijke accommodatie voor een grote groep is onuitgegeven : iedere slaapkamer is uitgerust met een ensuite tiptop badkamer...een ongeziene luxe ! Bovendien is er voor elk wat wils : heel veel ruimte in én buiten het huis, zodat ieder het naar zijn zin heeft , ongeacht het weer . De keuken is ook heel ruim en praktisch : niet onbelangrijk als je met velen bent !
Voor dagelijkse inkopen is er een Carrefour op nog geen 5 min rijden ( net vóór het dorp) en in het dorp hebben we een lekkere warme bakker gevonden !
De 'hosts' , Karen and John , zijn heel vriendelijk en attent en helpen onmiddellijk bij praktische probleempjes.
De omgeving is erg uitnodigend : wandelen in een prachtige, rustige omgeving langs weilanden en bossen, zwemmen, spelletjes spelen, relaxen is voor elk wat wils !
Een bezoekje aan Duras is zeker ook een aanrader ! Kasteel en marktjes lokken menig toerist .
Een weekje relaxen en genieten met familie of vrienden : 1 adres ' chez Karen and John in Château Perroterie of 'Le Manoir'!

Great house, views & surroundings.
Le Manoir, La Perroterie, St Sernin de Duras, 47120, France
Just returned from a fantastic holiday in France at Le Manoir. We had 17 people in the house, 9 children all under 10 and 8 adults and the house was perfect - very clean and tidy when we arrived and very well stocked and set up throughout the house, we didn't need for anything. The bedrooms are all simply but very comfortably furnished and the two lounges was great for our numbers, although with the weather we had we were rarely inside. Le Manoir has two terraces so you can breakfast, lunch and dinner in the sun and enjoy the stunning views - such a beautiful location. The pool was great and plenty of space for the children to play and ride bikes around the house and there were plenty of walks through the woods and down to the lake. There is another house of a similar size next door, which was also full when we were there, but the way the two houses are set up we barely saw or heard them so did feel like we had the place to ourselves. Beautiful surrounding area with lots of vineyards. Duras is a pretty town just up the road with a very good supermarket and boulangerie and a good market on a Saturday morning; there was a lovely night food market in Montiton (10 mins drive) on Tuesday; Lac des Clarens is about an hour away and well worth a visit - man-made beach on the lake with aerial walkways and zip wire and a great aquafun area with inflatables (think Total Wipeout!); and there's lots of kayaking on the Dordogne. John and Karen were great hosts and really helpful when we made our initial enquiries about the house. Would highly recommend - wish we were there now!

Le Manoir, La Perroterie, St Sernin de Duras, 47120, France
Excellent location and property with interesting history. Well maintained, with the owner visiting daily to maintain the pool and garden, and offer other help when needed. We were 14 in total, grandparents, married son and daughters with teenage children and one 7-year old. All enjoyed their stay, particularly the pool and playing boule until too dark to see. Duras is a very attractive small town/large village, and we particularly enjoyed the Thursday evening market, when everyone was able to select their own choice of food and eat at tables in the centre and surrounding streets. There was a choice of restaurants to eat out, but our family preferred to cook on the barbebcue and eat in the garden most evenings. We were lucky with the weather, experiencing only two rainy mornings, but fine enough for the pool again in the afternoon. We will almost certainly be visiting again.
