Guestbook comments from the owner
We had such a lovely time in Le Manse, the walk to the bakers in the morning, the pastis in the bar in the square in the evening and the wonderful markets in Sarlat and Souillac! We went to the caves in Lascaux, to Beynac, La Roque, Domme,Castlenaud and Rocamadour a few times, all stunning and very moving. What a wealth of history and chateaux on your doorstep!
