An Escape For All Seasons...
Le Manoir de Beauregard sits in beautiful 40-acre grounds in the Dordogne region of the Perigord and between the historical towns of Bergerac and Périgueux. Its origins date back to the 12th century, though Le Manoir as it exists today, was rebuilt around 1700. There still stands, however, the 12th-century dovecote, which was also used as a watchtower until the 15th century when it was partially destroyed during the hundred-years’ war between the French and English.
Lovingly restored & maintained, this beautiful home & its distinctive charm create a haven of peace and well-being. In this idyllic setting, with breathtaking views over hills and pastures, ancient walls, lime-washed beams, and south-facing terraces, Angela’s warm welcome plays an important role in ensuring your stay is a happy & memorable one.
The large, heated swimming pool, with magnificent views over the valley and hills beyond, is surrounded by roses, scented lavender and olive trees. It is an ideal place to relax with a book under the shade of the gazebo or an aperitif in the evening while watching the sunset. There is a heated outdoor shower & a small summer kitchen with fridge for the use of our guests.
There are lovely walks on the property along secret trails leading to the wooded areas, the cornfields or the nearby village.
In the warmer months, breakfast is served on the terrace under the shade of the old lime tree, and in the dining room in cooler weather. Tea is served from 4h30 in fine English china with cakes straight from the oven. Every Friday evening, by prior reservation, Le Manoir proposes an aperitif and canapés followed by a four course dinner using produce from the garden or the local organic farms whenever possible.
The village of Clérmont-de-Beauregard is just 10 minutes away on foot. Dating from the 12th century, and because of its fortifications and dominating hilltop position, it was an important defense point for the English who ruled Aquitaine at that time.
The medieval town of Sarlat, and the Lascaux caves where 17,000-year-old cave paintings were discovered, are an hour away.
Within 45 minutes you can visit the Bastide villages of Beaumont, Issigeac, and Monpazier, as well as the chateaux Beynac, Castelnaud, and Monbazillac and the picturesque villages of Limeuil & Paunat and many more wonderful sites of interest. The Manoir is situated in the very heart of the Perigord and is therefore a perfect base from which to visit this area so rich in history.
