Manoir Vaillant is located in Capelou, just outside the picturesque, medieval town of Belvès.
Manoir Vaillant was built in 1878, commissioned by colonel Cayla of the French army. This happened shortly after the construction of the church Notre Dame de Capelou, opposite the Manor, in 1876.
Originally, Manoir Vaillant had a long façade with a tower, the entrance was at the front in the middle
The property of 1 hectare is planted with plane trees, flowers and shrubs. There is a house and a converted barn. this barn houses the three gites. Gite Vaillant and Gite Sarrazin are on the ground floor and Gite Belvès is located on the first floor.
Manoir Vaillant is a small property where tranquility space and friendliness are paramount. There are no camping emplacements, there is no noise and there are no large groups of partying tourists. We are committed to tranquillity and privacy for our guests and we offer the opportunity to make your stay as pleasant as possible. We strive to offer kindness and attention to our guests, whether it comes to questions about trips, hikes or the nearest supermarket. But also if you need other assistance: the doctor for example (we hope not). We wiil always try to help you as much as possible.
There is a relaxed atmosphere at Manoir Vaillant. You can lounge under the plane trees when the sun is getting a little bit toohot, or you can cool off a bit in the pool. You can create your own space by simply placing a chair and a small table on the spot you want, because there are no fixed places for garden furniture.
You can read your book whether it's on paper or digital. You still want to keep in touch with the world via the internet while on holiday. We provide free WIFI on the whole terrain.
Have a chat, have a drink together, it is always possible, but it is not required. You can play jeu de boules, table tennis or badminton.
There is so much to see in the surroundings, castles, caves and beautiful gardens. You can go kayaking on the Dordogne river, you can swim and there are many hikes of varying distances. And do not forget: you can enjoy dinner at the many restaurants and bars on the village squares, in the little streets, on top of the hill or at the foot of the river.
The gites are all suitable for at least 2-4 or 6 persons. Each cottage has 1 separate bedroom. There is the possibility to have a separate bedroom for 2/4 persons on the first floor. This single room has a sink and in the hallway a separate toilet.
Lastly: the bedrooms offer the opportunity to add a cot for children who are not older than three years of age.
In addition, the three gites all come with a bathroom, kitchen and a separate toilet.
We do our best to guarantee everyone's privacy. Having a chat is always possible and sometimes dinner is organised with the other guests. But there are no firm rules for this.
We've noticed that some people like to receive information regarding the various attractions in the surrounding area. We have made several leaflets available in the hall of the gite building but we would also like to point out that you can find more information on the surroundings and the active holidays pages on our website.
We hope to see you soon for a very pleasant stay at Manoir Vaillant.
