It was love at first sight when we discovered Malagorse in 1999…
We bought the manoir, and with blind faith and optimism have slowly restored the buildings to their former glory using local materials and furnishings. In the 19th century, the north of the Lot was renowned for it’s famous ‘black truffles’ and many buildings were built from the profits.
The manoir is filled with furniture and objects collected over the years; our rooms are light and spacious with exposed stone, original features rub shoulders with luxury up-to-date bathrooms and comfortable beds. The main house contains four large bedrooms, and the renovated stable block houses two spectacular suites. The living room is situated in the old bakery and is a great place to unwind, curl up with a book in a leather armchair or browse through an interesting selection of books.
Malagorse is set in ten acres of peaceful parkland with wonderful views of the rolling countryside, the swimming pool is located in a large meadow with comfortable teak sun beds. An elevated terrace affords views of the landscape, an idyllic spot for afternoon tea or an early apertif. Plenty of quiet, shady spots for a siesta or reading.
For the children masses of space to let off steam, a wooden play area, trampoline and authentic tepee for any keen indians..
