The Walnut Store is one of 4 gites, a flexible space with 2 single beds which can be made into a king bed, making it a perfect space for a couple, friends or family members to share. Each of our gites is beautifully decorated and has it's own character. Set in the Vezere Valley, close to Font de Gaume in Les Eyzies and Lascaux II in Montignac. Wonderful scenery, perfect for walking, cycling, canoeing and relaxing. Beautiful villages and lovely restaurants.
A lovely cosy, self-contained gite situated at the side of our beautiful swimming pool. A sunny patio area for sitting outside when warm and a wood-burning stove in the living room when it is cool.
The bathroom is a large, wet-room style shower room making it accessible for everyone.

You will also have access to a communal washing machine and freezer. A shared swimming pool is available from May to end September and is accessed via the wooden terrace which is also the place for sitting and admiring the views across the valley.

Paul and I live here and will be available to help you enjoy your stay. We love to chat and advise you where to visit which restaurants are good and where to go to make the most of the wonderful Dordogne area.
We will also repair and replace when necessary.

We were both born, and grew up, in Leicester, England. We met in 1976, when Paul was working as a graphic designer and Philippa worked, in the same office, as a secretary then trained as a nurse.
After we had our two daughters, Charlotte (1982) and Nicola (1983), we came to the Dordogne for some wonderful camping holidays and fell in love with the region. From that very first holiday we said that we would love to come and live here.
In October 2008 we started a gap-year, something that we had not had as teenagers. We went travelling, visiting many places in Europe that we had not been to before, returning home just in time for Christmas. In February 2009 we went to New Zealand for a few weeks in a camper van, an amazing place to visit. On our return, we went to work as couriers for a camping company on the island of Elba in Italy.
It was extremely hard work; good fun but very tiring! The following year we were offered another campsite in the Dordogne, a few miles from Sarlat. Perfect, we decided, to look around and see if we found a property that we would like to buy.
It worked because within 2 months we found Le Manoir des Granges. The rest, as they say, is history, because here we are.
We like football, food, wine, beer. Family is important to us. Philippa likes reading books. We have travelled to different parts of the world and have enjoyed all of them. Nepal made a big impact on us, as did New Zealand.
We like to make our customers feel that they can turn to us for help, advice or just to talk.
When we are travelling we like relaxed comfort but not luxury (except for the odd night or two!) and we hope that is what we provide here.
