Manoir d' Hautegente
Located in Coly, France, is the Manoir d'Hautegente. If your travels lead you into the Dordogne region, here you will find a great stopping point for the evening or even a few days. This is an area where centuries of history have left their mark. You will be traveling down peaceful roads, past villages hundreds of years old, walnut groves and beautiful oak woods in the heart of this ancient land.
The Manoir d'Hautegente is owned by Edith and Patrick Hamlin. As we drove along the shady oak tree lined driveway, Edith greeted us at our car with a most gracious welcome and lead us outside into the garden area to sip a glass of Champagne or in my case, a Kir Royal, while our table was being prepared for dinner. It was a dinner that you will talk about for years to come........all fit for a queen!
More information can be found on the internet about the Manoir. It ceratinly is worth the visit . If you have further comments, send me an email and I will try to answer your questions. Those of us who love France will love everything about this magical place!
