A fabulous market On Saturday mornings, the Audierne market is one of the great features of the area - not only a great way to stock up the larders at le Manoir, but also good fun for everyone.

I just wanted to say another thank you for the support you gave to help me to arrange my husband's 50th Birthday surprise at Manoir Audierne. Everything went to plan and my husband loved every minute, he just couldn't believe it as our friends started to arrive, and especially his children! Being able to get into the house earlier in the day really helped me, and M. Daniel was fantastic, he was so helpful and accommodating, it made all the difference.
The party night was magical, everyone had a fantastic time, M. Cariou prepared a superb meal and the waiter was very professional and did an excellent job. I also managed to get the fireworks, so everything worked out as we planned; it was a great interlude in the evening!
We were lucky enough to have friends who are also professional musicians staying with us, so we all enjoyed the impromptu after supper. It was a magical week for us all, and I feel sure there is a lot of interest in booking Le Manoir again. As a group, we have booked several big houses over the last 10 years, and this one was the best so far. Thank you!
