The Manor House
Manoir Seguinet is our beautiful 18th century Manor House, sleeping 12 guests. The luxury accommodation is perfect for family and friend group holidays. wedding parties, even as a film location!
The maison d’maitre (master’s house) belonged to the main landowner in the village of Saint-Front-sur-Lemance. Over the years we have lovingly and painstakingly restored many of its original features, including its exposed original stonework, high ceilings, traditional wooden staircase, period-style large doors and the long tiled corridor, which dominates our spacious and extraordinary house. Beautiful, full height French doors open out to wonderful views of the gardens. Our home has been furnished with our guests’ comfort in mind.
Le Manoir provides plenty of space for adults to relax in peace, whilst your children find lots of interesting corners to play in. There are four comfortable living areas, three of which lead out to the large, sunny patio and heated outdoor swimming pool (11m x 5 m) with separate children’s paddling pool. There’s no better place to spend a lazy summer day under the French sun! Go to Booking
