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

This was our second year staying at the Chateau de Lavaud and we adored it as much this time as last year. We have family nearby and it is the perfect getaway. Florence and Robert and the most amiable couple. They are charming and warm and generous with their time and anything on the property that can enhance the stay,... More

We just spent two days at the Chateau de Lavaud and enjoyed it a lot. Florence is very welcoming, the chateau has a lovely situation (a bit tricky to find) and our room was spacious and very clean. The first night Florence made reservations for us at a lovely restaurant, walkable, that was the highlight of the trip. It was... More

I arrived being ill and hoped to stay 5 nights, however left after 4 whereby I had to pay for the full 5 night stay. Beds could have been better, especially the added camp bed was suitable for a small child, not a near-adult of 12. Luckily we had our mosquito protection as this allowed us to sleep with open...

We recently spent a night at Chateau de Lavaud travelling between Angoulême and Limoges. We chose based on the Trip Adviser reviews and, as other guests have said, the Chateau is a wonderful bed and breakfast which blends old and new. The Chateau, which has been wonderfully restored by owners Robert and Florence, is a beautiful house in large grounds... More

We recently spent two nights at the Chateaux with Florence and Robert who were perfect hosts. Florence had prepared a fantastic dinner sourcing local products, wines and their home grown strawberries served in their magnificent dining room. The accommodation throughout the chateaux was excellent. I would recommend anyone travelling through the area to take a break at this wonderful peaceful... More
