Hotel La Vieille Maison
Reviewed 30 October 2011

We were looking for a restful short break in the Dordogne (whilst driving from UK to Portugal) and this little gem was everything we could have wished for. The rooms are very comfortable and clean. The whole property oozes character. Our hosts, Andy and Egija were very friendly and attentive and made us feel extremely welcome. The Hotel is in the heart of a pretty village that is very quiet but perfectly placed for exploring the beautiful Dordogne. There are so many gorgious towns and villages to explore within a short drive. We particularly liked Brantome (great Friday market) and Aubeterre - see pictures. If you want a day in, there is a lovely patio area for simply relaxing & enjoying a drink by the swimming pool - although when we were there in October, whilst sunny, it was too cold for swimming! Fantastic evening meals at a very reasonable price are available in the restaurant and the continental breakfast was one of the best we had on our whole 10 day excursion through France and Spain. Our only negative comment is that there is no TV lounge - however, this didn't worry us as we were pleased to just "get away from it all". We will definitely return to this Little Gem.

Room Tip: From what we saw all rooms are well furnished and all will be quiet as it is a really sleepy village...

Stayed for 3 nights recently and we really had a relaxing time. We stayed in room 3 which had a bath and a small balcony. The pool was great and we enjoyed 2 evening meals which were superb.
The hosts were very helpful and friendly and we would return to this lovely old hotel.

A lovely wee hotel in a beautiful part of France. A real family atmosphere, because it's run by a real family! The food is amazing, the service friendly and prompt, but the whole place feels very laid back and relaxed. I can't remember the last time I was as chilled-out as when I was lounging next to the pool listening to birds singing and crickets chirping. Bliss!

The guys running the hotel could not do enough for us. They gave us good advice about what to see & what to avoid - they even gave us a hand-drawn map to find a beautiful little town nearby. Wonderful! We'd love to go back, and hopefully we will!

I stayed with a friend as we were attending a wedding in a nearby venue. The accomodation is beautiful and very traditional. The setting is stunning and the grounds and pool are well maintained. The menu in the restaurant looked amazing but we didnt get chance to eat there.

Andy and his partner ( wife now congratulations and good luck for September) were great hosts and very friendly. We had a lovely welcome and nothing was too much trouble during our stay. We were made beautiful sandwiches for lunch at short notice and Andy even dropped us to our car that we had left at the wedding venue the night prior. Breakfast was lovely it was in the gardens overlooking the pool and the offering was delicious. The service is very personal and attentive... it was just what we needed away from the hustle and bustle of our lives in the UK.

You must stay here.

The stay started well, with lovely rooms, pool and situation. however, the music was loud and on a loop and the service needs to be addressed. We felt the owners were too busy to be bothered with service. This rudeness was disappointing. There were a lot of wasps in the eating area outside and once we were sitting watching about three floating in our morning orange juice. If the owners got some more help I am sure it would be a fab place to stay.

Fantastic setting with great pool and setting make this hotel a treasure. Lovely countryside to visit with pleasant meals to return to. A secret jewel in western Dordogne. Thanks

Can only echo what most people have said about La Vielle Maison. Location perfect, the staff could not do enough for you, and the food very good. Stayed for a week but could have stayed longer. Will definately return.
