Toutvent Manoir

I am also delighted to be co-hosting with Toutvent Manoir. Re-opened in spring 2019, Toutvent is a beautifully restored 18th century French property situated in the Charente on the border of the Dordogne. Located 5-minutes drive from Aubeterre- sur-Dronne, listed in Les Plus Beaux Villages de France (The Most Beautiful Villages in France) the Manor house sits in an enviable hill-top position with stunning views over the Dordogne valley.
