We stayed at la Marteille for a week and didn't want to leave. You do need a car as it's very secluded but this area is very beautiful and peaceful. All the family loved the pool which is a good size for swimming. We enjoyed collecting our croissants each morning from the little shop and eating them overlooking the surrounding hills, and then later having a family dinner around the big outdoor table underneath the stars which are very clear in this area. Joelle and Michael were very friendly and helpful when needed. Michael greeted us with a lovely cold beer that was much appreciated after a long drive. We would definitely return.
From the moment we arrived at Le Manoir des Fouilloux we knew it was somewhere special. The attention to detail in every little corner of the beautiful and spacious house and grounds are the result of great vision and an enormous labour of love by its delightful owners Ian and Hugh.
Le Manoir exudes a classic, elegant style, with some fun and quirky touches and is luxurious throughout, whilst also allowing you to feel truly relaxed and pampered. You are really spoilt for choice with so many quiet corners to sit, read, relax, snooze, chat and drink rosé as well as several areas to enjoy sunny or shady breakfasts, long lunches and suppers.
With a 10 and 13 year old in tow and temperatures of up to 37 degrees, we spent a large part of our time around the stunning pool Hugh and Ian have created. Not wanting to be too lazy though, there are plenty of things to do very close by – kayaking, tree top climbing and river swimming can all be done from St Aulaye and Aubeterre is also well worth a visit.
Ian and Hugh are the most thoughtful and considerate hosts and should be rightly proud of the tranquil haven they have created. This was quite possibly the best family holiday we have had and we hope to return one day to enjoy it all over again!
Thank you all.
