Chateau De Lalande
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 28 August 2011

We stayed at Lalande for a weekend as part of our holiday drive through France. The chateau has been completely renovated and redecorated by the current charming owners. This family run hotel looks brilliant both inside & out. Every single detail from furniture to smallest piece of (silver) cutlery at Lalande's restaurant has been chosen with perfect sense of style and aestethics. As a result it is a truly relaxing place to be.

The owners could not have been friendlier, more helpful or patient with our sometimes perplexing questions (eg where can we buy fresh black truffles - in August?:)
Thank you everybody at Chateau de Lalande for making part of our holiday so very nice!

We stayed for only 2 nights, the food is amazing, local dishes are prepared with care and attention. Even a supposedly mundane strawberries and cream were presented in such an unusual and original way. The atmosphere is lovely, you feel as if you are staying in someone's cherished home and made very welcome. Be prepared to enjoy the food at a leisurely pace, this is a hotel that makes sure that each course is savoured. The pool area is lovely, beautiful sunbeds and drinks available. The rooms and decor are very tasteful and there is air conditioning if you need it, we found that by leaving the windows open that was sufficient. It you want true tranquility, I would avoid the school holidays.

A lovely French castle hidden away in the Dordogne region of France, hidden up some winding roads and surrounded by lush greenery, this is the place you go to escape. The grounds of this "chateau" are immaculately maintained, as are the insides, and the room we used were spotless and clean. The TV in the room was tiny but understandably, you probably aren't here to watch TV. Buffet breakfast was delicious if a bit on the pricey side, and the rooms are also slightly pricey but again, it's all in the location. You'll definitely need a car to get here, and it helps to have a GPS, as the hotel is sign posted as "Hotel La Lande" and not "Chateau La Lande". If you wander around the grounds you will see that it has been perfectly preserved, there is even the old stables that aren't used any more but are still there, as is the tower of the keep! A great place to visit if you want to escape to the countryside, have a quiet wedding (this is what we were here for), get away as a couple or just go on holiday.

absolutely beautiful hotel, stayed in chambre 11 which was decorated beautifully - lovely purples etc. bed was extremely comfortable.
we arrived late after chef had left but Yves put together some food for us which we were thankful for however as we were paying a la carte the food ended up being more expensive than the food! There is however a fixed price menu which looked extremely reasonable so be sure to arrive while the chef is still on duty!
shower was also cold.
the positives still outweight the negatives and would love to go back again!

I'm always conflicted whether or not to write a review on a place that we like so well...do we keep it 'for ourselves', or try and help out a sweet couple running a great property? Karma wins again!

This a beautiful petit chateaux about 15 kilometers west of Perigeux, center of the Perigord. St Astier is the closest village, 5 km away. The location is just far enough away (NW) from Sarlat to be very relaxed and not flooded with fellow tourists, even during the 1st week of August.

The photos on the website certainly tell the tale well: the chateaux has been lovingly restored with new fixtures and fabrics, and tasteful period furnishings. We took a junior suite which was wonderful; huge tub and great multi-headed shower, sitting room with a TV, and fantastic bed and linens. There's even A/C, although we didn't use it - as the thick walls keep the place pretty cool, even during 32C afternoons. The grounds are neatly maintained.

Our owner-hostess, Catherine, took wonderful care of us - even personally coming out to the sunny pool asking if anyone needed anything to drink or eat. She is incredibly helpful, guiding us to a fantastic lunch spot - before we had checked-in.

Dinner is served on a nice terrace. The menu blends local standards with more eclectic dishes. All are beautifully prepared and delicious. The compact wine list focuses on near-by Bergerac and Bordeaux wines. We ended up dining there all three of the nights of our stay - highly unusual for us as we like to venture out and check out the dining scene. Her young service staff is learning quickly. As in any restaurant that is catering to the near-perfect realization of the chef's vision, the service can be on the slower side - so be prepared for a relaxing meal.

We skipped breakfast after the first morning; it's served in the ornate formal dining room and we opted for heading to the various farmer's markets for fresh fruit and baguette and cafe au lait - served in the sun. I bet that in winter, with fire a-roaring, that dining room is the place to be.

We named the housekeeping team 'The Tornadoes'. Our first morning we got to the car and I realized I had forgotten the camera. By the time I got back up to the room (3 minutes, maybe?) I opened the door to find four women ripping the bed apart like piranhas on an unfortunate water buffalo. I said 'pardon' and they turned and went back to their cleaning fury. I'm fortunate I made it out without a change of clothes being forced on me. Needless to say, the entire place is spotless.

We spent four fantastic days lazing by the pool, soaking up the sun and the peaceful environment, and exploring when we felt like it. It's a great place and highly recommended - just don't tell anyone.
