This was the most superb B&B my family has ever had the great fortune of visiting. First the accommodations: quiet, clean, very well-appointed rooms (one for us parents and a connecting one for our two daughters who thought they were royalty staying in this palatial manor) made for excellent sleeping conditions. Not that we wanted to stay inside for too long because the grounds are magnificent: views of the nearby town and River Dordogne were breathtaking. Flora-paved paths through the stoney estate made for peaceful nature hikes that allowed my family to enjoy the labors of the owners who are true garden masters. The pool wasn't bad either! We adults enjoyed a picnic dinner amongst the variety of table/seating configurations while the children frolicked in the pool. Then there are the owners: lovely, warm individuals who were a delight to engage with. Despite our language differences, we were able to communicate in our best attempts with enjoyable results and lots of laughter. The breakfast was a Moroccan-French fusion that blended the lady of the house's heritage into a meal that had us all saying over and over: "Wow, this is amazing!" Not only would we stay here again (and for much longer next time than our original two days), we would recommend this place to our friends who enjoy sophisticated beauty that is comfortable to all the senses...and all the family members.
