To the south of Bergerac lies a picturesque scene of undulating countryside interspersed with pretty villages and fields of vines. Here, the vineyards are an intrinsic part of the landscape and indeed the local life. It is amidst this setting that we came across Le Manoir du Vignoble, a beautiful property owned by a local viticulturist whose vineyards form part of the grounds around the house.
The façade of Le Manoir du Vignoble is that most attractive combination of pale stone walls with a steep tiled roof of original local tiles in hues of burnt sienna, rusts and browns.
Dormer windows framed by stone complete the impressive appearance. The front of the house faces the circular driveway, in the middle of which is a lawned area dotted with trees. Stone steps lead up to the small terrace and the entrance to the house.
An atmospheric underground vaulted den has become the place in which to have a game of billiards. The sleeping accommodation takes on a more modern feel with a mixture of oak flooring, painted walls and up to date en suite facilities. At the far side of the main accommodation is a large reception/games room with its own kitchenette, living area with TV, DVD and CD players. From here, stairs lead to a dormitory, complete with its own en suite, a fun arrangement for children and teenagers.
From the old port, where you can take boat trips along the river, cobbled streets lead into the 'vieille ville' where half timbered buildings adorned with flowers house a variety of cafés, restaurants and shops. Scenic routes through the countryside lead you to a number of pretty villages, including Issigeac, Monbazillac, and Eymet.
Parties paying the small party rate will have use of the four main bedrooms; the dormitory on the first floor will not be available.
