An airy and light-drenched 18th Century stone manor house filled with inspiring curios, artwork and furniture in the heart of wine country. Striking distance from St Emilion & Bordeaux, great for bikes rides, walking & relaxation. Artistic elegance and luxury abound. Close to the Canal du Midi, night markets, Duras. Come for the breakfasts, the luxury White Company bedding, stylish bathroom, the pool, the gardens, the tranquility ...the honesty bar. Great for couples, solo & business travelers.
Formerly known as 'The Writer's Room', the newly named 'Icon's Suite' pays homage to 20th century celebrity and greatness. The walls, adorned with the icon-o-tastic images of Marilyn Monroe, Muhammad Ali, Audrey Hepburn and the Fab Four (amongst many others!), should certainly inspire you to a good night's sleep. And, though you may still feel compelled to hammer out the first chapter of your debut thriller novel ..whilst pausing every now and again to appreciate the delightful view from your window.. You may also find yourself so suitably lulled by the glamour of it all, that you opt for a lengthy (very lengthy) soak in the roll-top slipper bath instead. Bathed, from the shoulders up, in the walnut tree dappled, early evening sunlight that shimmers around this beautiful bathroom, crammed with Victorian curiosities and sparkling Burlington fixtures.
Find a quiet corner of the house, a pocket of shade in the grounds or take up a sun lounger poolside; the freedom of the Manoir is yours to enjoy. Explore the meadow for wild orchids, red squirrels, woodpeckers and fairytale-esque mushrooms. And, when the last of the warm autumn sun is finally squeezed from the sky, giving way to cooler days (mid-October perhaps?) Worry not, your stay will be equally memorable; browse the library, pour yourself a LARGE glass of something from the honesty bar, and settle down (book in lap) in front of the wood burning fire. Who needs 30 degrees? °C you'll hear yourself asking...
