“Just perfect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 October 2013

My husband and I stayed at this chateau at the end of September for 2 days. I had high hopes for it because of all the great reviews and stunning pictures, and I wasn't disappointed. It couldn't have been more lovely. My husband and I both love all things historic, so we especially appreciated how well this chateau balanced having modern conveniences and comfort without sacrificing the historic feel of the chateau. It really felt a bit like stepping back in time. We had the most basic room, but we still thought it was lovely- not small at all and it still had a pretty view. There is no shower in these rooms, but it honestly didn't trouble me at all because the bathroom was large and well-appointed. Besides how absolutely beautiful the chateau is, we also appreciated how wonderful the service was. When we arrived there were little snacks waiting for us in the room and a handwritten note from the proprietor thanking us for our stay. All of the staff were so helpful and accommodating and went above and beyond anything we expected- from volunteering to make dinner reservations for us to walking us in with umbrellas during the rain. They also just seemed like very nice people and were always so polite and patient with our attempts at speaking French. We were very sorry to go, and even though we typically never visit the same place twice, I would love to stay there again. If we do, I hope it will be exactly the same.

This was the one property that we decided to splurge on during our two week trip through Southwestern France. And boy was it worth it!!!! It is not inexpensive, but to us was worth every dollar for the experience of staying at such an incredible place. The physical chateau is just magnificent, rising up from the Dordogne River and dominating the landscape. Approaching the chateau you are awed by its size and beauty, but once inside you are equally as awed by the facility and the rooms. We stayed in Fenelon, a room that contained a king bed, two windows that looked out over the front of the chateau and one window that looked out over the Dordogne River. The room itself was enormous with cabinets and closets as you walked in the hallway to the bedroom, the bed, a large desk and a sofa and easy chairs. The bathroom was also very large with a separate shower and tub and a window that also looked out over the front of the chateau. One of the afternoons we were there we walked the grounds around the chateau and found the natural beauty magnificent.

To say that eating at Chateau de la Treyne was an experience would be a terrible understatement. The dining room is gorgeous, just like the rest of the rooms. The food was beyond description. We ate there both nights. The first night we ordered the four-course, fixed-price menu and found everything superb. The second night we were still full from the first night’s dinner so we ordered from the a la carte menu. Either way, you cannot go wrong eating here.

On our way to the Chateau de la Treyne we got a flat tire in the pouring rain, and arrived looking like a couple of drowned rats. The staff immediately realized our discomfort and did everything to get us into our room immediately and then one staff member, Fabien, took it as his personal challenge to address our flat tire issue. Thanks to him, we were put in touch with a garage in a nearby village and the next day had a brand new tire. We are extremely grateful to Fabien for his personal service but in fact everyone at the Chateau was extremely attentive. This is one of the nicest Relais et Chateaux that we have stayed in and would highly recommend it. It is also located close to Rocamadour, Sarlat and Perigeux, which makes it perfect for touring the area.

We stayed here for three nights from August 31st. As we were going to be late arriving we asked if some food could be arranged in our room. We got a great selection of cheeses, ham and bread with wine of course. Enough to feed six let alone two, but very welcome and, like everything else here, beautifully served and lovely quality.
I can only agree with all the nice things that have been said about this hotel. A wonderful setting, lovely food and seamless service. Quite one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in. It all comes at a price of course, but worth it for a unique experience.

Room Tip: We stayed in "La Tour". Huge bathroom with whirlpool bath. Wonderful views.

This Chateau is out of a dream. After a grueling trip between air flights and train rides, we had the most beautiful welcoming and could not believe the incredible setting. The room was spacious and beautiful and the food was outstanding. The only complaint was that no one explained about breakfast, times, and price (expensive.) We will stay again if we are in the area.

Room Tip: They are all nice

What a pleasure to read that you were satisfied with your stay at Château de la Treyne and the services we propose. Thank you very much for sharing your comments with us on Tripadvisor! Sorry about the misunderstanding about breakfast. Breakfast is served the whole morning (8.00am-11.00am) and you can find all the information about breakfast in the small "Welcome Book" in your room. We are a small boutique hotel and you can take breakfast in your room, in one of our salon, or by good weather outside close to the formal garden. It is an individual breakfast and not a buffet. Hope ti see you again. Thank you again. Stéphanie Gombert.

I am lucky to say that I have been to some amazing places, and stayed in some very wonderful hotels, but everything about this property is just beautiful. The staff is so professional, yet very warm and friendly and the atmosphere is magic. It's so peaceful, I felt like I did a giant " exhale" the minute I got here. The food is just so first rate, I mean, really creative, and just divine. I can't say enough about our fabulous experience here!!

This is one of those "you have to visit this once in your life" places. The location is amazing, the staff is completely disarmingly friendly and the quality of service is of 5 star quality The food is just superb and the cheese tray is overwhelming - must have been at least 40 choices on the tray. Stephanie and the team were just excellent. We will be back.

This is one of the Relais and Chateaux - a chateau perched on the high ground overlooking the Dordogne river with a view for miles. The grounds are extensive with pool and beautiful gardens. The chateau is historic and has been decorated and kept up in style. We were on the 3rd floor in a large room overlooking the garden/entry side. It was comfortable. I slept very well in the quiet and dark. The bathroom is a nice size, modern with a large tub against a wall where an ancient exposed beam crosses to the ceiling. This is total ambience. The rooms of the chateau include a large formal dining room which we did not have the pleasure of dining in because they served on the ramparts overlooking the river with that fantastic view. The restaurant is noted for its excellent cuisine. Dining was an experience to delight in. Service was excellent. The staff were helpful, especially in recommending area visits. We followed their advice and went to Sarlat and Rocamadour, both pleasant short drives and worth the visit.

Breakfast was served on the front patio area by trees and a lovely gulch of green vegetation. It included breads, cheeses, some meats, a variety of juices, even chocolate milk. When we arrived we had not eaten and were hungry so they provided us with a snack. For our second night, they recommended a fabulous restaurant by the river below.

This is a top of the line hotel, expensive but worth it for the quality of the experience.

Room Tip: I think all rooms will be very good. Ours on the 2nd (3rd) floor was large. I think it was called En...
