“Fantastic large self-catering family property”
Reviewed 4 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We booked the Manoir de Gurson for a group comprised of 7 adults and 2 children (aged 6 and 8) for a one week self catering holiday, Both the property and hospitality of the owner were exceptional and exceeded our expectations.

The grounds of the property were an absolute delight and everyone in our group took to exploring the fields, woods and lakes at least once. We saw plenty of local wildlife including deer, kingfishers and owls.

The property itself was ideal for a group as each room had its own bathroom which for a group mostly comprised mostly of adults was essential, especially when we needed to get an early start in the morning. The catering and dining facilities were also excellent and we put the large BBQ to good use on 2 occasions.

The terrace was tranquil and relaxing (when the kids weren't around!) and the pool was a perfect depth for ages 6+ (at 1.2m) and ideal for adults inclined to take a refreshing afternoon dip. In the evenings if the weather when the sky was clear the potential for stargazing was staggering (see photo)!

As a base the property was excellent for experiencing all the region had to offer. We enjoyed visits south and west towards Saint-Emilion while also traveling north to enjoy the excellent food at the night market in Le Pizou and canoeing/kayaking from Montpon-Menestrol.

“Great house with friendly and helpful owners”
Reviewed 13 November 2012 for a stay in August 2012

We spent a week at the Manoir with our two sons and friends. A very attractive house in the old French style, well furnished and appointed and set in the midst of beautiful countryside. We made full use of the relaxing pool area which has stunning views especially at sunset.

I can't speak too highly of the owners who contrive to be both unobtrusive and extraordinarily helpful. They provided excellent advice on local facilities/things to do both before and during our visit, as well as extras such as a free barbecue on our arrival. When the bike I had booked turned out to be too big for me to ride they magically produced another one from the barn, again without charge. Nothing was too much trouble.

The Manoir is in an excellent position for wine buying and the owners put us in touch with several local growers, as well as arranging a tour. St Emilion is also close by with its wine shops and first rate restaurants.

If you're a golfer there are good courses in easy reach - Charmaine recommended Chateau Vigiers which also has a wonderful restaurant if you're feeling extravagant.

I would recommend the Manoir very highly for a relaxing holiday in one of the most beautiful and interesting parts of France.
