“Idyllic chateau experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2013

This place ticks all the boxes for what you would expect from a chateau stay in the Dordogne. The place is beautifully appointed and we had a gorgeous four poster room with large dressing area and great bathroom. I have even taken pictures of the bathroom to copy if we ever get round to refurbishing ours! The dining and breakfast food was faultless and their breakfast pain au chocolate the best of the holiday with it practically melting in your mouth. I am not a sun worshipper but there is a good sized swimming pool and plenty of loungers if that is what you like. We really enjoyed our three nights and would definitely stay there again.

On our way to southern France i stopped over for the night and was more than impressed with the location, the building, the beautifully clean and well appointed room and the evening meal. Everything was excellent and the staff were all very friendly. A great place and I definitely stay again!!

Room Tip: I stayed in room 106 which was great for a couple with lovely large seperate bath and shower room

My wife and I stayed for four days at Mas de Montet at the beginning of May, and were extremely impressed. The château is a very fine building, set in large grounds, and Beautifully converted and updated. We were lucky enough to stay in the "Mitterand Suite", since we understood that the previous French president used to stay at the château quite often.

The rooms are particularly well furnished (I was able to see two others, and they were of the same standard as our suite, although a little smaller), and very comfortable.

The staff are professional and attentive, without being obtrusive.

We stayed on a half – board basis, so dinner was included, and the food was both varied and excellent.

An advantage is that the château is in particularly pretty countryside, and bicycles are provided for guests to use which we very much appreciated.

Although seemingly in the middle of nowhere, access to the château is not at all bad, since one can fly to Bordeaux or Bergerac, or take the TGV to Angouleme, all of which are well within two hours.

My only criticism is that the wine list, while extensive and containing some excellent wines was rather expensive, to the extent of inhibiting the amount of wine we ordered! apart from that, we recommend it unreservedly.

My wife and I booked 3 days in Montet as a part of our Honeymoon and ended up staying for 5 as we couldn't not bring ourselves to leave. Having spent nearly 3 weeks travelling around the region and staying in 6 different 4 star (and better) hotels, Montet was the unquestionable highlight. The staff could not have been more helpful, the Chateaux and gardens are simply stunning and the food is Michelin star quality - particularly the desserts. There is plenty to do in the area but we saw out many an afternoon drinking from their extensive wine menu relaxing by the pool which is set so elegantly next to the facade of the main house. If you do choose to visit, take a cooking lesson from Marie, where first you will head into the grounds to pick mushrooms, wild garlic and herbs, before being taught classic french cooking in the easiest of ways. You will not regret a visit here, of this I can promise.

What a wonderful place to go. Great food and individual attention. I stayed here with a friend for a couple of nights in June and was absolutely delighted with the treat that we felt Chateau Le Mas de Montet proved to be. The food was superb and included fresh fruit and veg from their own beautiful kitchen garden, a good selection of wine, and attentive waiting staff.The suite we stayed in was fabulous and huge, however having looked in other rooms I would be equally happy. Despite the inclement weather, the pool was opened for us and lots of warm towels supplied as we got out in the rain! I am really looking forward to going back. I think this would be a perfect place for family celebrations and couples.

I have visited several times to dine, and it has always been excellent. Now had the opportunity to stay as well, and it was wonderful. the staff attentive without being intrusive, food great, and lovely room (suite). Food was up to standard, wine list comprehensive and well priced.

Room Tip: suites are in the main house.
