Sophie and her team are charming hosts at L'Esplanade, and the food is excellent. If weather permits eating out on the terrace as the sun sets is unforgettable.

we stayed in the hotel so enjoyed breakfast in the morning before departing. Breakfast was very good but a bit confusing about what could be eaten without exceeding the selected meal plan. Food was fresh and delicious.

Situated at the summit of the medieval town of Domme, on the Esplanade, which dominates the Dordogne valley. From the restaurant, which is shaded in harmonious yellow and blue to the rooms with antique furniture, you can experience and enjoy the Dordogne thanks to cuisine based on the flavours of the south-west intensified by inventive notes.
