BFB's Overview

Glamorous yet charming, this pretty 4-bedroom (sleeps 9 plus cots) farmhouse with heated pool enjoys a wonderfully tranquil location set down a sweeping tree-lined driveway with glorious, uninterrupted, views of rolling meadows to the rear and ancient trees to the front.

Despite its scenic setting it's just a few minutes drive from many of the Aquitaine's prettiest bastide villages, including river-side St. Livrade, which has one of the largest weekly markets in the area and a host of useful shops and services, plus the large, yet equally charming, town of Villeneuve-Sur-Lot, just a few minutes further on.

Petit Manoir's lovingly restored and well maintained exterior is a good indication of what lies within. Swinging open the quintessential French doors guests find a light bright interior blending character features such as solid oak beams, stone fireplaces and tiled floors; with modern luxuries such as an Alexa sound system, WIFI, TV with DVD in the pretty snug, and dishwasher, microwave, gas range cooker, Nespresso machine, along with the usual gear, in the huge kitchen dining room. There are two spacious bedrooms on the ground floor (a double & a room with two sets of bunk beds) plus a bathroom, equipped with a fantastic walk-in shower. Upstairs is the glamorous master bedroom with ensuite bathroom featuring a roll top bath and double sink. This links into a dressing room, which could take a cot. There is a further bedroom on this floor with a single bed and a cotbed.

Outside, is the real pièce de résistance, the stunning heated pool, shady dining terrace overlooking 10-acre gardens and meadows, backing onto rolling fields and woodlands. Nestled within the grounds, mini guests will be pleased to find a wooden climbing frame, trampoline swings and table tennis. There can be few more relaxing ways to while away an evening than sharing a bottle of local, Cotes de Duras, wine and soaking in the views over the countryside towards the old hilltop windmill at Coulx, whilst the sky gradually becomes a blanket of stars.


The current owners purchased the house in 2017, having previously rented it (and fallen in love with it) on a holiday with friends. The owners have three young children and, thanks to their own experience, have ensured that the house is now fully equipped with everything needed for an unforgettable family holiday

Location Information

Petit Manoir is within a short drive of some of the most beautiful villages, vineyards and historic sites in South West France. The principal towns of Villenueve sur Lot, Agen and Bergerac are all within easy driving distance, whilst the smaller bastide villages nearby provide all the essentials and offer weekly markets and fêtes bursting with local produce. Particularly lovely is Issigeac's Sunday market, especially when followed by the fabulous Sunday Brunch buffet at Chez Allain, which has an enclosed terrace with a raised pond and garden area little ones enjoy.

More family fun and even watersports can be found at nearby riverside beach (sandy), which is just a ten minute drive away., and at the 'Magic Cauldron' eco farm, named after the pot in which the mohair of 250 angora goats is farm dyed! Little ones will love making friends with the animals which they can touch and feed including lambs and kids, goats, sheep, chickens, ducks, turkeys, large angora white rabbits, highland cattle and two of the largest grubbiest pigs ever seen! You can also try your hand at cheese or bread making.

  • We have had a fantastic stay at Le Petit Manoir. The area is very quiet and it has been truly restful. Our 1 and 3 year olds have enjoyed the toys, pool and outdoor play equipment and chickens and other wildlife on the grounds. We've visited river beaches, swum in lakes, cycled along country lanes, perused local markets and soaked up the relaxed French countryside vibe. We would love to come back one day.Review dated 13/09/2019

  • A wonderful time in a beautiful setting - the views and sunsets are glorious. The wildlife is also abundant - we were visited by a hare, woodpeckers and dragonflies. Brilliant for kids (ours are 1, 6 and 9). Would definitely recommend for a relaxed family holiday.Review dated 01/09/2019

  • Lovely place. Rural, peaceful and very restful. The welcome pack was also a very lovely touch. Cannot fault any aspect of the property.
