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.
