About our home

Our beautiful French manor house dates back to 1750 and is surrounded by 6 acres of land, including a heated outdoor pool, plenty of outside dining areas, stables, orchard and huge field for family sports days! The stone-built manor has large rooms but a warm and welcoming feel with huge stone fireplaces for wintery wood fires.

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.

The Manoir 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 (May-September/Oct only) and terrace, and a stunning barbeque and fire pit area behind the small orchard which overlooks a perfect French view. The stables host lots of bats and balls, croquets sets and the bike collection, and the games room in the Manoir has a billiard table and plenty of board games.

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. We are super family friendly - the pool is fenced and cover is available throughout your stay, travel cots and sheets, baby baths, high chairs, sterilising equipment and stair gates can all be provided.

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.

Manoir la Croix de 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.

Get in touch with any questions!

Please note that we rent out the manoir for the summer, so it will not be available for swaps.
Pool in use May-Sept/Oct only (weather dependent)
