My husband and I were excited to show our teenage children the sites of the Dordogne region of France at the beginning of June. Our delight at being back here was greatly enhanced as a result of our stay at the Manoir de La Malartrie. In every sense imaginable, this is a true chateau, build underneath the cliffs overlooking the Dordogne river and on its banks. Thischateau is absolutely enchanting with its myriad of sitting areas on multiple plateaus around the property, some carved into the rock cliffs and some overlooking the Dordogne river or adjacent to the large pool. We chose the Commarque suite which is comprised of two adjacent rooms, one for my husband and me with a queen size bed and the adjacent room with twin beds (equally spacious) for the kids. The bathroom consisted of a very large room (the size of most hotel rooms in Paris) with double sinks and a huge, glass framed shower and a sitting area. The rooms also had a seperate toilet facility. All rooms, including the bathrorom, had windows and views of the cliffs, garden, pool and river.
Our breakfasts were taken either in the banquet hall or in the chateau's charming garden. An equally lovelyl feature of this B&B is Ouafaa, the exceptionally gracious and helpful owner and manager of the B&B who served us breakfast every moning with a smile and provided impeccable advise on dinner options in Beynac and Vezac. Ouafaa and her husband's dedication to their lovely home is evident in its beautifully landscaped gardens as well as the stunning exterior of the Manor house and its rooms. This is a great location from which to enjoy the many attractions of the Dordogne - we absolutely loved our stay here. Thank you Ouafaa.
