MANOIR DU SUQUET
Wonderful Holidays, Events, Weddings
Le Suquet is a pre-French revolution Manor House and buildings that are being converted by Stephanie and Skip Vogelius Bowman into an authentic country get-away dedicated to cool country charm and a rustic healthy lifestyle. Come and relax. Explore the Dordogne and Bastide belt. Taste the wines from Appelation Bergerac. Bike ride the roads and trails of this delightful countryside that promises sunny but not excruciatingly hot summers. The rolling fields are always rich in crops and small forests. At every turn, there are quaint villages and hamlets. Ancient church towers. Delicate streams and powerful rivers. Pilgrim routes and the remains of great battles between empires.
The Dordogne is the most popular tourist destination in France after Cote d'Azur and Paris. So don't miss out. The food and lifestyle of the South West is unique and full of proud heritage. Take advantage of our 6-minute drive to arguably one of the best and prettiest weekend markets in France at Issigeac. Buy your lunch from one of the many stores bulging with local produce and then come home to Le Suquet to prepare for an epic French afternoon ... long lunch, glass or two of white wine, and then la sieste.
For active people, we can recommend road and mountain-biking, canoeing, hiking and cafe-crawling. Or combining all during a week where you will be welcomed and protected by the patron saint of pilgrims St Jacques (St. John).
We can recommend many delightful excursions including castles, chateaux, churches, bastides and gorgeous gardens. Just tell us what you are interested in doing before you arrive and we can give you suggestions for itineraries and selected restaurants, tours and activities.
"Only 5 minutes from Issigeac, Le Suquet is perfectly located for a delightful Dordogne holiday."
