Prepare For Gastronomic Indulgence


French dinners at the Table d’Hôtes du Manoir are occasions for discovering the varied gastronomy of the Quercy and the fine wines of the Malbec cépage in a convivial ambience.
Whether you have chosen the traditional French Réveillon de Noel Break on 24 December or the French Réveillon de la Saint-Sylvestre Break on 31 December (or both), it is time to dress up and celebrate in style !
La Table d’Hôtes dresses up, too! Champagne, fine vintage wines, gastronomic menu with black truffle, conviviality and cheers – be ready for a long night in the French tradition!

Each Réveillon dinner has its own menu

Something Magic


Are you ready to be bewitched by breath-taking Magic?
Philippe Rivière, a rising star of close-up magic will bedazzle you with his tricks in a private séance in the comfort of the Manoir.
Time for Private Exploration…

Walks in the surrounding countryside and picturesque Causses du Quercy, short drive to the illuminated cathedral city of Cahors with its shops, market and brasseries. Your choice!
…and cosy relaxation at the Manoir

Sharing a game of billiards, playing chess or one of the many games available at the Manoir.

Our Black Diamond


Participate, with an expert and her dog, in the art of finding the noble black truffle (La Truffe noire noble) in the ground.
Indulge in dishes flavoured with this fragrant and precious Tuber melanosporum.
