Holidaying at Le Manoir is all about having loads of family things to do in the safe environment of our huge grounds, we frequently hear from parents that they were suprised that they actually had some relaxation themselves and found they needed to go and find what the kids were doing when they had finished their reading and wanted some interaction. Le Manoir tries to turn the 'Mum I'm bored' holiday on its head. But when you are ready to explore the area, just hop in the car for a huge variety of fun, exploring and sight-seeing. We are only 30 minutes from the fabulous family friendly golden atlantic beaches at Royan and only 15 minutes from the quaint fishing ports on the massive Gironde estuary. The area is steeped in history and has a range of good quality family tourist attractions,...Holidaying at Le Manoir is all about having loads of family things to do in the safe environment of our huge grounds, we frequently hear from parents that they were suprised that they actually had some relaxation themselves and found they needed to go and find what the kids were doing when they had finished their reading and wanted some interaction. Le Manoir tries to turn the 'Mum I'm bored' holiday on its head. But when you are ready to explore the area, just hop in the car for a huge variety of fun, exploring and sight-seeing. We are only 30 minutes from the fabulous family friendly golden atlantic beaches at Royan and only 15 minutes from the quaint fishing ports on the massive Gironde estuary. The area is steeped in history and has a range of good quality family tourist attractions, several are world class. Besides the 10m by 5m beautiful saltwater pool, both the Cottage & the Gite have their own large patios with big barbecues and hardwood table and chairs so you can enjoy outdoor living in the sunny weather to the full. The accomodation is very well equipped including antique furniture, dishwashers, satellite TVs and WIFI broadband. In The Cottage you will enjoy a very large living area with a high spec Ikea kitchen at one end, comfy sofas at the other and a large oak dining table seating 8 very comfortably in between. There is a superb hardwood staircase leading to a galleried landing lit by a large chandelier. Beautiful Charente stone is on show on at least one wall of every room, all of the internal doors are solid oak as is the floor upstairs and many of the window sills. The original oak beams - over 100 years old - are on show in most rooms and bathrooms. Unusually, there is one bathroom for every bedroom. All are finished to a very high standard. In addition, there is a BBQ loo downstairs so Dad can spend his time looking after the food. There is also a separate Utility room with exclusive washing machine. A 7th person can be accomodated using the optional extra bed/cot. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: 53836680800011More

About the neighbourhood
Set in gently rolling countryside and surrounded by woodland, apple orchards, sunflowers and vineyards yet only a short drive to the coast. The local lanes are a delight for a quiet stroll or a family cycle ride when you can spot lots of interesting wildlife including huge birds of prey circling the woodland. When you are bored with watching the sun go down over your BBQ, there are plenty of good restaurants within a short drive. There are a wide variety of activities for all ages within easy reach of Le Manoir for example: 10 pin bowling at Saintes and Meschers, both 30 mins Quad bikes - an excellent forest track with exciting dips and climbs and bridges. 35 mins Royan Go Ape - Zip Wires - 5 courses some very high and challenging. 30mins Royan.

Getting around
We are in the country side so a car is necessary for most trips. We do have bicycles for rent so you can collect your morning baguette and croissants from the local boulangerie.
