My fiance and I recently spent two nights in Lavaud to attend a friend's wedding nearby. What a beautiful place, especially the pool area (which was very welcome given the 30 degree heat at the time!) Robert and Florence are such a friendly couple and they really looked after us in our hour of need (!) We really appreciate it... More

This was our first visit to Chateau de Lavaud, but we will certainly be returning. The Chateau is absolutely fabulous, with beautiful bedrooms and modern well equipped ensuites. Robert and Florence are perfect hosts, and nothing was too much trouble. There is a very good restaurant within walking distance, but we recommend that you take dinner at the Chateau at... More

We stayed for the second time at Chateau de Lavaud and it was even better then the first time. Robert and Florence are very welcoming and Florence's cooking is fabulous. Florence had made a recommendation (and kindly booked) for us a dinner at the local mill restaurant which was lovely. But the second night Florence cooked our meal (confit de... More

We stayed here unexpectedly, originally for one night but decided immediately upon arrival to extend for two! Robert and Florence are kind, welcoming and so helpful - arranging tables at local restaurants and making superb recommendations. Our first trip away with our 9 week old son who was made as welcome as we were, we were shown to a beautifully... More

What a lovely place to stay. Sadly we were only able to stay one night on our way to Limoges airport nearby. The chateau itself is lovely, imposing from the outside but very homely and welcoming inside. The room was great, ours was in the annexe at the back overlooking the pool. Florence and Robert are very friendly and fantastic... More

This has been our fourth time in the Chateau and every time it is a delight. We found this little secret in 2009 when Florence and Robert just opened for guests. By now they have opened their 5th room and each room has its own special atmosphere. The reasons why we keep coming back are rather simple: 1. The kind... More

I had the great pleasure of returning recently to Chateau de Lavaud for a spring break from the hustle & bustle of city life. I have previously visited in autumn & summer seasons, and always been delighted by the warm welcome and enthusiasm of owners Robert & Florence Manderscheid. The chateau is wonderfully positioned with sweeping views down to the... More

Spent a long, weary day viewing houses in the Montbron area and arrived at the Chateau de Lavaud later than expected. Opened the front door to be greeted by a bemused hostess....the bemusement was totally justified as apparently Booking.com had managed not to inform her of our booking, yet had confirmed it with us. So, to cut a long story... More

We stayed here for 2 nights on our mini-moon. We had a choice of rooms. You could hire bikes for free. It was quiet, beautiful and restful. I even had to go to the doctors while there and they offered to translate for me if I couldn't make myself understood. Tasty home made jams, cakes and croissants for breakfast. Good... More

We stayed at the Chateau de Lavaud with friends recently. The hosts, Florence and Robert Manderscheid, were very welcoming and prepared to go (well) out of their way to accommodate the needs of two boisterous families with small children. They seemed to know exactly when they were needed but were at the same time very discrete - pitch perfect. The... More
