Our second visit to Manoir de Puymangou did not disappoint. All was as good as we remembered." P. Family, from Ireland.

"We've had a lovely two weeks in the manoir. Périgueux was beautiful, Angoulême and Périgueux good for shopping - Markets in Chalais and Ribérac great fun. Swimming by the river on the "beach" in Aubeterre and St Aulaye - the kids loved it. Beaches at Royan lovely but a bit far away! Good café in Aubeterre by the "black cat" in the square and the ruins are a must.
Very relaxing holiday for everybody." (June) R. Family.

We return home relaxed and refreshed. Thank you!" S, J & JS; J, P & TR
