Property description

My Lady’s Manor is a romantic, hundred year old mansion surrounded by a spacious garden with exotic trees including a sequoia, a giant tuya and a Ginko Bilboa. Our graveled paths are bordered with pink hydrangeas which turn scarlet in the autumn.

Our house is an ideal rendez-vous for international family reunions. A friendly and relaxed atmosphere awaits you and your family. In these pleasant surroundings you will enjoy renewing old family ties getting to know new family members. Much better than a hotel, you will feel at home. See our website for more information.

My Lady’s Manor is located in Estavayer-le-Lac, a small charming walled city that has survived intact from the Middle Ages. You will be delighted with its narrow cobblestone streets, 15th century houses, lakeside cafés and terraces with excellent French cuisine. Elderly family members and children appreciate the Petit Train for getting about. Young people will love the sport facilities, and the only water ski tow in Switzerland.


Keywords: International family reunions, Stately House, near the railway station for day trips in Switzerland, 100 year old manorhouse, in a beautiful garden setting.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1982

About the owner: Owned by Phyllis Pritchett, author of Rendez-vous at My Lady's Manor. (Buy it on Amazon). Born in Wisconsin. Don't hesitate go ask me for advise while planning your reunion or vacation. I speak English, French and some German. I, or one of my colleagues, will be present to meet you when you arrive. I am looking forward to getting to know you and your family and friends.

Why the Owner Chose Estavayer-le-Lac, Switzerland:
I bought this lovely manor because it has a special charm from a bygone era. There is lots of space and I love gardening. The house is a cultural meeting place, where we hold classes in History and Archaeology for the University of Georgia, as well as other subjects. Familys love our house as it is easy to get supplies from the store across the street and is near the railway station. I am sure your family will love it too.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Our manor is located very near the railway station making train travel very easy. We are one kilometer from the Autoroute entry. You can also arrive by boat during the summer season. Our lake is connected to two other lakes with regular boat service. Bicycles are easily rented and there are hundres of kilometers of bike trail to follow. Our area has a rich historical past, which is why we house a Studies Abroad for the University of Georgia. You can follow 17000 years of history starting with the Latenium museum in Neuchatel, Neolithic village in Gletterons, Roman town of Avenches. In July there is an opera festival in the Roman arena of Avenches.
