Manoir Laurette is a charming 19th-century house located in the beautiful hamlet of Lorette on the border of Gironde and Lot-et-Garonne, France’s main wine region. This exquisite Chic Retreat has just 3 boutique hotel rooms which are overflowing with quirkiness, character and faded glamour. The perfectly positioned pool and tennis court make this exceptional hideaway the perfect mid-week or weekend break. Extra beds can be added to the rooms but we feel this romantic escape would be appreciated more by couples.
Surrounded by vineyards and fields filled with sunflowers, this Chic Retreat is just 45 minutes from St Emilion and an hour from Bordeaux.
The picturesque bastide towns of Monségur and Duras are just minutes away as are hidden treasures of brocantes, medieval villages, markets and cafés. We recommend you hire a car so you can explore the region - St Emilion is only 45 minutes away and Bordeaux just an hour.
During the summer months, a full à la carte breakfast is served in the folk art dining room and in the winter by the open fireplace. Passionate about food, the team at the Manoir ensure that wherever possible the ingredients are homegrown, locally sourced and made by their own hens. They serve the award-winning Joe's Tea and their fragrant coffee is blended locally in small batches. The butter pastries are fresh every morning and are complemented by the local jams and honey, making them simply irresistible. The crunchy homemade granola is the perfect match for the local, creamy yoghurts.
Smoked salmon and scrambled eggs, pancakes with crispy bacon are just some of the choices on the menu but you'll find it difficult to choose because everything here is mouthwateringly good.
Discover the wines of South West France or enjoy a curated selection of cheese & charcuterie served in the dining room. Grab a bottle of artisan gin for your holiday – you're spoilt for choice as they have over 25 different labels to choose from in the mini gin emporium
Route de la Comtesse, Lorette, Saint-Martin-Petit 47180, France
On the toll road (E72/A62) from either Bordeaux or Toulouse take the exit for LA REOLE. Follow signs to La Reole, you drive straight for around 15minutes until you reach a roundabout take the first proper exit (in the distance you will see a bridge that you will drive under) At that T-Junction take a right to MONGAUZY and MARMANDE. Drive for 3/4minutes. Reach Mongauzy and just after the bakery on your left, take a left at the church (slightly set back from the road) signposted MONSEGUR (there is a restaurant/bar also on the corner where you turn). If you reach the petrol station in Mongauzy you have driven too far. Drive for 2minutes following the road round to the right and reach a T-junction, take a left and about 200yards along take a right signed ‘l’eglise Lorette’. Drive for 5minutes, upon reaching Lorette take the first right by the church signed 'St Bazeille' (if you drive past the tennis court you have missed the turning) The pistachio green gated entrance is on your left, which will be open and has a blue and gold ‘Manoir Lorette’ sign. The entrance is opposite a small allotment. Please park your car on the gravel turning circle. Our reception/entrance is at the side of the house.
