Le Manoir Retreat

Clermont-l'Hérault, France


Unbelievably beautiful French retreat

A French country house bursting with character and charm, surrounded by stunning countryside. Lavender filled gardens. Salt water pools. Beautiful interiors. The ideal retreat venue or holiday villa in rural France.

The Location

Secluded and private Le Manoir Retreat makes for a heavenly escape, but you have the village of Villeneuvette and its uber traditional bar and restaurant just down the road, plus the larger Clermont L’Hérault slightly further.

Montpellier and Beziers are both half an hour away and the nearest sandy beaches of the Mediterranean the same.

  • The wonderful peace and tranquility. It’s perfect for retreats that need that sense of escape, but also offers the sense of seclusion and privacy ideal for group holidays or intimate events – Barbara is a registered celebrant by the way!
  • The perfect blend of traditional French design and character with modern expectations in terms of bathrooms and kitchen
  • Each of the bedrooms are completely different, but have beautiful furnishings and design
  • We rather like the grandness of The Library bedroom with its bookshelves and sofas
  • If you’re travelling from London there are train options to Montpelier from as quick as 7 hours, perfect for a spot of slow travel
  • The house sleeps 8 across individually styled bedrooms, all with their own bathrooms
  • Two of the bedrooms are on ground floor making them easier to access
  • You can choose to take a wing of the house for smaller groups of up to 4
  • Various seating and dining areas throughout the main house, all opening on to terraces designed to make the most of the wonderful climate
  • Well-designed kitchen with central island (ideal for cookery demonstrations)
  • Large courtyard and beautiful gardens, plus a salt water horizon pool
  • The house is the perfect venue for all sorts of retreats, including yoga with its designated yoga platform overlooking surrounding vineyards
  • Barbara has an extensive list of contacts across the area to help provide whatever you need for your stay at Le Manoir Retreat, including caterers and transfer providers

Barbara owns Le Grand Hermitage having given up her commercial career in the cosmetics industry in the UK to focus on this venture. She is also an independent celebrant www.theenglishcelebrantinfrance.com so if you want to get married here she can look after every detail for you and it’s the ideal spot for small intimate weddings.
