The good news about this hotel is the beauty of the buildings (conceived to imitate a Roman forum) and of the location, near to the Dordogne river.
There is also bad news. The rooms (or at least the room we had) are more spartan than the outside appearance of the hotel would suggest. Not the luxury one would expect from the prices. The wifi system is the worst we have encountered in any French hotel. Each and every time you want to use it you need to go to reception to get a new code. The system not only fails to recognise you if you have left the hotel, it fails to recognise you if it has arbitrarily thrown you off - which it frequently does!
It is interesting to see in the tripadvisor reviews (especially the ones in French) how many criticise the hostility and rudeness of the proprietor. He was stunningly rude to me when I raised the question of the wifi, telling me that that was the way it was, that I should accept it, and that this sort of thing is more relaxed in the Dordogne than in Paris or London.
We will not be going again.
