The Manoir is owned by Simone who is a professional wine maker and lover of horses.   Simone adores everything original and quirky and has lovingly decorated her home with original art, sculpture, ceramics and fabrics. We are thrilled that Simone has decided to share the Manoir with our guests.

You will book your holiday through Tamar who owns Rural Escapes – a collection of hand picked exceptional self-catering houses in areas of outstanding natural beauty in Portugal, Southern Spain, the Limousin in France, the Greek Island of Syros, Cumbria and North Wales.

Your point of contact will be Anna who will introduce herself soon after your arrival and will be on hand if you need anything. Edourda  (the housekeeper - who keeps the Manoir spotlessly clean) will change your towels mid-week and the gardener - Manuel - is often popping around and will clean the pool during your stay. 

You will no doubt meet our new miniature goats who are very friendly - be careful though as they will eat anything!

You will have the opportunity to buy some our our homemade wine, jams and marmalades via our honesty box. You can also order a seasonal box of our own vegetables or salad ingredients.  During the summer you will be able to participate in yoga or tai chi sessions in the gardens.  A lovely local chef is happy to cook for you your during your stay. 

We are thrilled to have been chosen by Sawday's to be one of their Special Places!

"A fabulous house in a fabulous setting. Facilities fantastic. The team were very helpful if we needed anything and great advice on what to see and do in the area. We particularly loved the gardens, the views and the different areas to sit in them throughout the day.

"Le Manoir was the venue for a Covid delayed family reunion, bringing together people from Spain, the UK, and the US over a two week period. The room layout was such that teenagers and adults could all find bedrooms to their taste. Dining options were plentiful, both indoors and out, while the kitchen provided another gathering place, as well as having excellent appliances (especially the Aga.) The owners met us on arrival, while Anna and her crew kept the place in shape on their weekly visits and Manuelo dropped off eggs, honey, and other products from the farm. We can’t wait to go back!"

"We had a lovely time in the Manoir. The pictures do not even capture the beauty of this place. We stayed for one week and actually spend half of our time at the estate, since the inside and ourside areas are wonderfull. The perfeclty equipped kitchen, the lovely pool area, and the beautifully restored house itself made the trip unforggetable. We will definatlly come back. Thanks for having us"

""The house is stunning, with high ceilings and such beautiful decor - every aesthetic detail has been thought through. It is functional and very well equipped. There is so much space overall and many different quirky little locations to soak up the view or the ambience. We often felt like we were in a film. The pool is huge and exactly the right temperature and there are enough shady spots to cool off. Thank you for being such wonderful hosts and so responsive to our needs. With much gratitude" - Nina and friends.

"Gather the clans and come here. For sunshine, peace and quiet, a full-size pool, dreamy views, lovely walks and shady places to rest. Even in horrid weather you'll feel happy here with a roaring fire going and lots of interesting artwork, good food and much comfort"
Nicola,Sawday's Inspector November 2021


"The Manoir was exceptional in a stunning location in the hills - very peaceful and secluded but also very close to the lovely market towns of Sao Bras and Loule. The views from the terrace were spectacular. The housekeeper looked after us with clean towels and fresh flowers and we felt quite spoilt. The pool was heated to a perfect temperature. We loved out time at the Manoir and didn't want to leave. We will return in a heartbeat".

"Amazing place to spend your days in the Algarve. The house itself is more than stunning - the pictures don't even show the real beauty of the place. It feels like you are spending your days completely surrounded by nature - with the amazing garden you almost forget that you are close to numerous gorgeous beaches. Thanks so much for having us".
