Manoir La Croix de La Jugie is a beautiful family manor in rural France; perfect large property to get away from it all. Stunning views, 6 acre estate, heated pool. Sleeps 16+. Available for weddings and retreats. Hosts &Breathe Postnatal retreats. Extremely baby/child friendly.

The space

Our beautiful Manor House, Manoir la Croix de la Jugie, is set in the heart of the rolling Limousin countryside - with picture perfect rustic French views. It is very close to the Perigord-Limousin National Park and only half an hour from the Dordogne.

La Jugie is set in 6 acres of lovely land, which includes a large rambling field for messing around with bikes (we have a small collection) or holding a family sports day, a more formal garden area with a heated pool and terrace, and a stunning barbeque and fire pit area behind the small orchard which overlooks a perfect French view. The stables host a small bike collection, croquet sets and plenty of bats and balls to play with, and the games room in the Manoir has a billiard table and a raft of board games. The ground floor of the Bergerie cottage is available for use as a yoga space, with a few mats provided and this is also where the ping-pong table lives. PLEASE NOTE: pool in use May-Sept/Oct only.

There are 8 bedrooms, four with their own bathrooms and four more which share a further two bathrooms. There are several living areas: Grand Salon, Petit Salon, Dining Room and a large kitchen with another long dining table and wood-burning stove; you and your guests can also dine outside under the barn's canopy (which easily seats your whole group) or on the terrace for long lazy lunches and dinners. For a really relaxing holiday, we offer a catering service for you and your guests for an extra cost.

With plenty of walking and cycling routes starting from the Manoir, and golf courses, riding schools and even a circus school nearby, you won't get bored! There are plenty of delicious traditional French restaurants within a few minutes drive and weekly markets or supermarkets for buying provisions. Perigueux, Angouleme, the Bordeaux wine region, Cognac, and the Massif Central are all perfect for day trips, even Paris is only 3 hours on the train.

Limoges airport is 35 minutes' drive away with regular flights to London. The train station in Limoges is three hours to Paris and Bordeaux, Bergerac and Angouleme airports are also easily accessible by car.

La Jugie is perfect for your big family reunion, long relaxing summer holiday, or weddings and group celebrations. We have a large barn attached to the main house which can host 80-100 guests for a sit-down dinner, and outdoor celebrations (with or without marquee) can also be organised. Ideal for weddings, anniversaries or special birthdays.

We are super family friendly - the pool is fenced, cots, baby baths, high chairs, sterilising equipment and stair gates all available!

Guest access

The whole estate is yours for the duration of your stay - perfect privacy but with a couple of neighbours up the lane if you should need a cup of sugar ;-)

Interaction with guests

The owners are not present at the manoir, but on the end of a phone or email for any advice, questions or queries. We can arrange catering, babysitting and day trips in advance, as well as massage treatments. Please contact us before your stay for any of these.

Other things to note

We can arrange one-off or weekly catering for a super relaxing week or if you're celebrating a special occasion. Please contact us once you've booked and in advance of your stay with your requirements.

Fantastic from the start! Great contact from Clio throughout the entire process. As for the house, couldn't have asked for more. Amazing house in a wonderful location.

The house was lovely and in a very rural and quiet setting. The views of the surrounding area from the house and pool are incredible! There were 21 of us for the first few nights and the house comfortably accommodated this number of people. The owner is very easy to correspond with and offers a variety of additional services, such as catering and a daily maid service. We would recommend the daily boulangerie order, particularly if you are a large group, but there are also various supermarkets within 20-30mins of the house. We had a really great stay in this house!

Superbe endroit, au calme dans un hameau, nous etions 14 adultes et 6 enfants de moins de 6 ans et avons passé 4 jours ce début juin. Le Manoir est très bien équipé, décoré et propre. Le jardin très agréable et bien entretenu. La piscine chauffée est sécurisée avec une clôture tout autour ce qui est rassurant pour les enfants. Les chambres sont spacieuses et pour la plupart dotées de sdb. La salle à manger/cuisine permet de faire tenir 14 à 16 personnes. Bref un très bel endroit, confortable, nous pensons revenir l'année prochaine.

Notre Week-end au Manoir fut une expérience inoubliable. À 12 adultes accompagnés de 6 enfants, nous nous sommes sentis à notre aise dans les espaces communs, ainsi que dans chacune des chambres à disposition. Le jardin, le barbecue et la piscine ont fait notre bonheur lorsque le soleil était de la partie. La cheminée, la salle de jeu, le grand salon et l'espace cuisine salle à manger nous ont sortis du pétrin lorsque la pluie s'est invitée sans prévenir. Il ne manque rien au Manoir pour assurer un séjour parfait. (Mention spéciale à la cuisine très bien équipée pour accommoder autant de personnes) Nous aurions aimé rester plus longtemps !Nous recommandons sans aucune hésitation ! Merci.
