A personal beautifully decorated B&B. We enjoyed two nights in the magnificiant Magnolia room. Fantastic organic breakfast, complete with home cooked jam. Eric and his wife were very helpful and service minded.

So we stayed here for the first two nights after our wedding. It was next door to our venue and perfectly located to walk into Ste-Foy-la-Grande. The owners were warm and welcoming and we loved hearing about their transfer from NYC to rural France.

Our rooms was superb - we stayed in the red room - and we had a breathtaking view of the stunning garden and Dordogne river. Breakfast was a delight - we're both still dreaming about the croissants as we ate in the dining room overlooking the garden.

Thank you for kicking our marriage off in such style. We will definitely be back!

Eric and Thida were very warm, welcoming and most hospitable. Beyond the chateau wall you will find a dream world. There is definitely magic in the air here and a place to see. Perfect terrasse to enjoy a glass of wine while overlooking swans on the river.

Behind a plain wall lies a dream setting.
The open plan layout of the cottage compliments the grand aspects to the location.
The swimming pool setting and style is amazing.
Both Eric and Thida were very attentive owners who allowed us full use of facilities.
Their friendly dog "Fiji" added to the enjoyment of our stay.
Port Saint-Foy offered the perfect backdrop to the location.
It was pure bliss - eating breakfast and evening meals outside.
Fantastic as a central base to tour the Dordogne region.
We can't recommend this highly enough. A perfect cottage for a dream holiday.

La Batellerie is a real "find". We loved the beautifully restored building with its sweeping staircase and elegant drawing rooms, carefully chosen antique furniture, beautifully laid out formal terrace and its stunning setting right on the river. The small pool in its stylish Moroccan-style setting is an added bonus. The suite we stayed in was spacious, beautifully designed and really comfortable. Eric and Thida are great hosts, and gave us some excellent recommendations for restaurants and places to visit. Sainte Foy is a good base for exploring the area. Breakfast was generous and delicious. We thought this was excellent value - highly recommended!

Room Tip: The suite is lovely and spacious - 1 X kingsize in the main room, a double in the second bedroom. S...

Wow! What a place! Wished so much that we had found it earlier and made it our base for our tour of the Dordogne area. A fabulous 18th century building lovingly restored by the present owners and great hosts.
How to be transported back in the times of plenty and beauty. Our hosts delighted us with their passion for their home and their collected knowledge of it's varied and interesting history. Recommendations for places to see and where to eat were gratefully accepted and spot on! Thank you both so much for making our last few days so memorable.

Room Tip: They are all wonderful and you will not be disappointed!

A beautiful place to stay; we spent 3 nights in the terrace room, overlooking the garden & river. We enjoyed warm evenings on the terrace with a bottle of wine chilled in our fridge. Breakfasts in the elegant dining room were memorable and our hosts a delight. A great place for touring the surrounding area. We hope to return.
