Le Cantou, authenticity and period charm for two in the Manor house

Le Cantou is located on the first floor of the Manor. It is the original dwelling of the property, with a beautiful living room with an authentic Perigordian fireplace, called "Cantou", and an adjoining bedroom. It retains the charm of the late XIXth century, with the old wooden door, the high ceilings, the large windows overlooking the park and the fountain, and the golden Perigord stone. Since the renovation in 2020, the kitchen and shower room are modern and very well equipped. The apartment is spacious and comfortable. It stays cool in the summer inside the thick stone walls. In chilly weather, the stove makes it very cosy. Le Cantou is the only gîte on the property open year round.

For dreamy nights in this peaceful haven, the high quality bedding is dressed with linen sheets from Normandy. The excellent soundproofing and the quietness of the park promise you a restful sleep.

Above the park, the guests of Le Cantou have access to a shaded terrace with deckchairs and a hammock. Another terrace, a few steps away from the cottage entrance, is theirs to enjoy an outdoor dinner with a barbecue.

Bathroom linen, pool towels and final cleaning are included in the rate, and the accomodation is reserved for one or two adults (only).
