Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
Le Manoir, Blanzac Porcheresse, Charente, Near Dordogne, sleeps 10-14 in 7 bedrooms.

Le Manoir is an exceptionally beautiful and elegant house, sympathetically and carefully restored to a very high standard, accommodating modern requirements but keeping a very luxurious and French style.

Le Manoir is perfect for hosting any special event including family celebrations, weddings and anniversaries. This fabulous setting will make any occasion unforgettable.

We offer 'A Taste of The Charente' - a bespoke wine and cognac tour. A fabulous opportunity to experience wonderful food, unique distilleries, a French market and a local chateau.

The approach is impressive, showing the house at its best from the large gates. The setting is secluded but not isolated, only a 3 minute drive to the nearest town which has most facilities. A leisurely walk takes approx 15 mins.

Le Manoir comfortably sleeps 12 adults. The kitchen is the hub of the house, and there's plenty of seating for everyone - traditional yet stylish and catering for every need. The living room area has comfortable but elegant seating, as well as a 43" flat screen TV, freesat TV and docking station. The dining area seats 12 people and several sets of French doors lead out to the terrace. 2 impressive staircases reflect the elegance and grandeur of the house.

The terrace for BBQs and alfresco dining is accessible from the kitchen, dining and living room and also from the downstairs suite. This is a great gathering area for the whole family/group. The rear of the house is completely secluded and the terrace overlooks the beautiful 12 x 6m pool and tennis court. We have added a poolside shower room, 2 WCs and a treatment room for those all important pamper sessions! There are plenty of poolside loungers and parasols. An external kitchen in the pool area has a washing machine, dryer, cooker, fridge and sink.

The gardens are simple and elegant to reflect the house. The grounds cover 7000m sq, with secluded areas of the garden in which to sit and read in the shade, or just relax in the total peace and tranquility of the beautiful gardens.

On arrival we provide a welcome hamper which includes cheese, fresh French bread, tea, coffee and of course some delicious local wine!
