Le Chatenet is a splendid building with lovely grounds and facilities. The decor would not be to everyone's taste but we certainly had plenty of space and access to a terrace which would have been great in better weather. We had thought of staying a few nights but the weather drove us south. Though well-meaning, I felt the lady of the house should have allowed us to settle in rather than insisting on giving us a lecture on the history of the house and the surrounding area. Another couple were breakfast victims when the gentleman of the house provided a lecture on tea that must have caused their tea to go very cold! The path to Brantome was a little longer and steeper than we had expected and Brantome, itself, was one of these places that tourist buses visit for a couple of hours (in my opinion!). I can see why Le Chatenet receives many good reviews. It just wasn't right for us. Our next stop was Domain de Pine, south of the Dordogne - now that was our kind of place!
