Visited Le Manoir for my 3rd time. Paul and Philippa are two of the nicest and most helpful people you could wish to meet and are wonderful hosts. The house is very well equipped and comfortable with ample space. Le Manoir is well heated for those colder nights and there is a lovely log fire to doze in front of! The house is located with views over Le Roque St Christophe and a few minutes walk from the River Vezere. It is an ideal base for exploring the Dordogne. The house is a few minutes walk from the village centre where there is a boulangerie and local bar. I can recommend the croissants and local beer! Will most definitely visit again.

We stayed in Le Manoir des Granges on one of our visits to France. Rooms are spacious and all with en suite. Two swimming pools are a big bonus. And the views are outstanding.
We loved the place so much that we decided to have our wedding there. We booked the whole place for one week.
Paul and Philippa were very helpful with organising everything for the wedding. On our special day they were around all the time to make sure everything went smoothly.
The stay was fantastic and our wedding guests are still talking about Le Manoir des Granges. We could `t ask for a better place to get married.
If you`re looking for a small venue with great atmosphere and good accommodation look no further.

We were indeed lucky to find ourselves at Philippa & Paul's Haybarn in a glorious autumn that saw walnut trees dropping nuts everywhere and hot days that still meant a brisk swim in the gite pool. Philippa & Paul had thought of everything : a welcome bottle of local wine, fresh eggs from some nearby hens, oil, vinegar and other condiments, even washing powder for the laundry.This attention to detail is indeed rare. As well, they were both very knowledgeable about places to visit and the virtues or otherwise of different restaurants.The freshness of their approach and their genuine concern in their guests' enjoyment gives real meaning to the idea of hospitality.Our one wish is that we can get back to enjoy it all over again in 2012.

Nous étions 14 personnes, 4 couples et plein d'enfants. L'endroit est magique avec cette vue extra, la piscine, les chambres très cosy, la décoration agréable et l'accueil très chaleureux. Paul & Philippa sont très sympathiques.

We stayed in The Roque Terrace at the beginning of September and we had a lovely time. The accommodation was perfect for use and Philippa and Paul were so helpful and welcoming. It is a great location for a holiday with lots to do and see and plenty of great restaurants. We definitely plan on returning to stay at The Roque Terrace.

Our group of nine adults spent the week of Sept. 17th-24th in the Main House. The house was large enough to comfortably accommodate the group. All of the group especially appreciated the large bedrooms all with ensuite bathrooms. The dining table was our favorite place for the whole group to gather to share our daily adventures.
The location was perfect to explore the surrounding area. Also excellent restaurants, a large grocery store and bakery were within in minutes of the house.
Paul and Philippa, the most cordial of hosts were always available to suggest places to see. Their recommendation for a local tour guide to visit prehistoric caves and a chef to prepare a gourmet meal at the house delighted the group.
Thank you Paul and Philippa for sharing your lovely home and your hospitality in the beautiful Dordogne area, making our holiday truly memorable.

We travelled with friends who found this gite on line. What a great, well appointed property. Quiet, but close to heaps of places of interest. We stayed mid September for a week. What a shame we couldn't stay longer. Five stars from us for the excellent accommodation and hosts who could not have been more welcoming. Excellent weather for our time there too! Thanks Paul and Philippa.

Le Manoir des Granges was the perfect holiday destination. Such a beautiful setting! The accomodation was superb, fully equipped and with so much character. Paul and Philippa were the ideal hosts with great local knowledge and always happy to help. Highly recommended for a relaxing holiday.

This is just a note to say how much we enjoyed staying at your lovely Villa with our friends. We were in the group that visited 17-24 September and we stayed in Le Roque. It was perfect for us as my spouse has had knee surgery and she cannot manage stairs.
I cannot imagine all the work it takes to manage such a large place, but we wanted to let you both know that from our perspective it was all worth it. And as for the dinner with Edwin on Friday night, we can only say Wow! We will not forget our wonderful week at your home and have been telling all our friends.
