Lovely gite in beautiful area. Philipa and Paul were very friendly and helpful to us during our recent stay in their gite. Nothing was too much trouble for them including Paul chasing us in his car when we left as we had left our passports behind! The gite was very comfortable and clean and very much enjoyed our evenings out in the local eateries. Our hosts even purchased some essentials for us prior to our arrival and we thoroughly recommend the wine and local fresh farm eggs Paul supplied us with. We would not hesitate to recommend staying here and our thanks to Paul and Philipa for making us feel welcome.

Très agréable séjour entre famille et amis au Manoir, magnifique maison où rien ne manque pour notre confort. Philippa et Paul sont charmants et nous les remercions pour les sympathiques cadeaux de bienvenue ! Le beau temps était au rendez-vous et nous avons pu profiter de la grande terrasse pour tous nos repas. Très bel endroit dans une très belle Dordogne pour passer un magnifique séjour. Michèle

Magnifique demeure qui a plu aux adultes pour son authenticité et aux enfants pour son espace. La table de ping-pong a fait des adeptes! Très bien équipée et très bien située, elle permet de découvrir cette région, riche en histoire. Merci Philippa et Paul pour votre accueil discret mais efficace. Nous ne manquerons pas de faire de la publicité pour votre adresse.

Quelle belle fin d'année dans votre gite !
Trois jours de retraite paisible loin du brouhaha de la vie courante pour se ressourcer dans ce lieu cocoon et confortable où rien ne manque et tout est pensé pour le bien être des hôtes:
De la boite d'allumettes et le petit bois pour la cheminée, en passant par le sèche cheveux et les lits faits...
Le bonheur existe, nous l'avons rencontré chez vous !
Merci à vous deux !

'Mid August 2015 saw a family group arriving at Le Manoir Des Granges for a week's holiday. Ages ranging from one year to seventy two made for a challenging range of needs - and catering. No probs! The accommodation suited us perfectly - especially as each room has its own bath/shower room. Grandparents on the top floor meant that we had peace and quiet and could retire to our room when such was needed... All equipment and facilities were very good eg 2 fridges, 2 ovens, plenty of kitchen storage, dishwasher, washing machine, dryer etc. The good sized and well maintained swimming pool was safely fenced off and very popular with all.
Our hosts were exceptionally helpful - both prior to our arrival and during the stay - booking a hotel for the Friday night and also the Font de Gaume cave visit. During our stay they came up with good suggestions for activities due to not the best weather!
We all enjoyed our stay. Activities close by were made good use of - cycle hire, canoeing and cave visiting topped the popularity stakes. Not to mention the two day marathon Monopoly game. And one of the best things was when a first- time teenager visitor to France started a sentence with 'When we go to France next time...'
Thank you Philippa and Paul'

We just wanted to thank Paul and Philippa for a wonderful holiday. The Haybarn was great for us:2 adults and 2 dogs. The private terrace meant we could let the dogs stroll in and out of the Barn at their leisure, whilst we took in the sun. Also the fields next to the Barn and the river a short stroll away, meant they were really spoilt. We loved the close proximately of the accommodation to many attractions and there were so many walks and restaurant's to choose from. We will be back

We love to stay in a vacation rental hosted by persons who care about their place and who take pride in giving maximum pleasure to their guests. Paul and Philippa welcomed us warmly and made sure that each of our vacation day was pleasurable. The gite, the Walnut House, was spacious and comfortable.
The location was perfect to reach many beautiful sights in the Dordogne area.
We had a wonderful time.

A group of seven of us stayed at Le Manoir des Granges. We were pleasantly welcomed by Phillipa and Paul who were very helpful and full of information throughout our stay. We were all pleasantly surprised by the spacious and comfortable house. We chose this location because it seemed well situated as a base to explore the region, but after seeing the well appointed house I think each of us decided we must take time of from sightseeing Just to enjoy the house and it's facilities,
There seemed nothing not to like and relaxing next to the pool watching the birds occasionally dip down for a quick drink I felt I needed longer there.

We are a family of 5 (children 15, 13 and 9). we were fortunate to stay at the Main House and to enjoy the generous hospitality of Philippa and Paul, the owners. The house itself is outstanding - still has the ambience of an old farm house built in late 19 century. the house features greatly equipped kitchen for small breakfast or fancy dinner - we did breakfast every morning and cooked two dinners with produce we picked at local markets. The rooms are specious, very clean and well equipped. The swimming pool is well maintained, with clear, clean water (Paul maintains daily). The location is second to none - patisserie for your fresh baguette is 2 min drive in the nearby village, several good restaurants in St Leon sur Vezere, 5 min away, canoeing on the Vezere is around the corner, and so are many other "must see" destinations are within 30 min drive max. The real treat is the genuine, generous, open and friendly hospitality of the owners - Philippa and Paul. they were full of great and practical advices and went out of their way to address all our questions and requests. They are British, refreshingly fluent English spoken, which made directions, instructions and general communication flow easily. It was a great week for all of us and we are already planning our next stay. If you are heading to the Dordogne - this is where you need to stay! Highly recommended!
