Chris and Charles first dreamt of living in France 30 years ago. Having had a holiday home in the village of Le Bourg d’Ire for over 12 years, it was natural when La Vieille Douve came on the market, for us to buy it. With the friends and contacts we have made, it allowed us to convert this once proud Manor house back to the Manoir it once was. Since then we have renovated one barn to a swimming pool, dining room, games room and small gym, and another barn into 3 gites. We are in the process of working on other buildings as well as landscaping the garden, planting trees, creating wildflower meadows and stocking the 3 lakes with carp, blackbass roach and rudd. We look forward to welcoming you to The Manoir.
