Manoir Laurette is located in the hamlet of Lorette in the Gironde region of France. There are slightly larger towns nearby (Monségur and Duras), both of which are steeped in history and offer good restaurants and bars.
This area is known as “the nation’s orchard” and is arguably one of France’s best wine regions. Ideally located for guests looking to soak up local culture and history, you’re a 45-minute drive from stunning and historic St. Emilion, while Bordeaux is an hour away, as is its airport.

We loved everything about Manoir Laurette. Our room The Icon had great attention to detail, full of stylish antiques and everywhere you look there is something of interest to discover. Lora and Rob have gone the extra mile to create a truly special and unique experience for their guests. A garden picnic by candlelight was a real highlight for us as well as a fantastic massage in the spa. We enjoyed exploring the excellent wine cave and chatting about Lora's previous career in cabaret! Manoir Laurette is a gem. We'll return.
