The Story of Manoir du Bois Mignon

The Manoir was built in 1791 in a tiny hamlet nestled on the banks of the Dordogne River, situated in the Bergerac wine appellation between the mediaeval river ports of Ste Foy La Grande and Le Fleix.

While preserving original features such as the magnificent stone fireplaces and the pigeonnier, we have given this wonderful family home a facelift in 2015 to bring it into the 21st century, while retaining its original grace and charm.

Sheep, donkeys and deer graze the fields, fruit is ripe for picking all summer long and the surrounding vines and woodlands cloak the area in shades of green.

The Manoir features 4 guest suites, all en-suite and very spacious and featuring super king sized beds with premium linens and luxury toiletries. There are several areas for guests to sit and enjoy the glorious French summer weather and enjoy a glass or two of local wine.

We would love to welcome you to our home and we pride ourselves on being LGBT friendly. Explore our facilities.

About Mark and Denise

Being lovers of wine, food, history and travel we followed our dream and moved from Australia to south west France in 2014, spending the next 12 months lovingly restoring and renovating our new home, where we would now be delighted to welcome you as our guests.

We are also passionate collectors, and the Manoir is filled with mid-20th century Scandinavian art glass and Australian aboriginal art.
