Perks for the Parents

This stunning 19th century manoir in the Dordogne is set in 15 acres of beautiful green space and vineyards. It has a separate 3-bedroom cottage and a converted barn housing a bar, games room and home cinema. It sleeps up to 14. The separate cottage would be perfect for family or friends travelling together. Both the main house and the cottage have their own al fresco dining terraces to dine under the stars. The bar in the barn is a fun addition so parents can relax while the kids play, and there's a fitness room too. Set in the heart of the wine region, there is much to enjoy nearby including vineyards, medieval towns, local festivals and farmers’ markets.

Why Kids Love it

The converted barn will be a hit with kids of all ages but especially tweens and teenagers who can hang out and play snooker and table tennis. They’ll love the home cinema in the barn loft with a deep comfy sofa that should fit everyone. All the kids will enjoy swimming and splashing in the private, heated pool which has a glass fence and a gate so that parents with small children can relax. Out and about there’s plenty to keep them entertained including kayaks, canoes, stand-up paddle-boarding and whitewater river trips on the Dropt river in the summer at La Sauvetat-du-Dropt, or an aqua park outside Bergerac with swimming pools, chutes and slides.

About the Location

Manoir du Jasmin nestles just outside a small hamlet of Saint-Capraise-d'Eymet in the southern Dordogne countryside of south-west France. It’s a short drive to the village where you’ll find a small shop with essentials and a boulangerie for morning croissants. Just over 10 minutes’ drive you’ll find the pretty town of Eymet with a thriving cultural scene, cafes, restaurants, impressive medieval architecture, and a weekly farmer’s market. Foodies will find plenty of places to enjoy in the area with fine restaurants in Monbazillac, Bergerac and Issigeac and the Michelin-starred Le Vieux Logis in Trémolat. The region is dotted with vineyards – don’t miss a visit to the museum Maison de Vins de Bergerac where you can learn about the history of the region and sample wines made by local producers. From Bergerac you can take the train to the wine city of Bordeaux (around 75 minutes). Fly into Bordeaux–Mérignac international airport.

Style Notes

Effortless French chic. This is a 19th century manor house fully equipped with 21st century luxuries and convenience – you’ll find it very hard to leave. With exposed stone walls, oak beams and original flooring, Manoir du Jasmin has retained its historic charm while providing visitors with understated luxury – high quality bedding, elegant beds, soft pastels and deep bath tubs in the soft white bathrooms. The living spaces are large enough for everyone to socialize together and the pool is surrounded by limestone and set in Mediterranean gardens. We love the fruit trees and vegetable garden where you can help yourself to aubergines, chillies, or whatever is growing, the countryside setting and the magnificent barn – fun for kids and big kids alike.

Dordogne, Southwest France

The green heart of France

The rural farming heart of France is a fantastic destination for a family getaway, amid fields of sunflowers and pretty market towns. The Dordogne river itself is good for canoeing and swimming, and there are castles and chateaux to explore, caves painted with prehistoric images and, this being France, sensational food.
