Florence and Robert Manderscheid were the most amazing hosts. Welcoming us for the first leg of our cycle tour of the Perigord region. We stayed 2 nights initially and returned for our final night, before heading back to London. On the grounds of the Chateau de Lavaud there is an orchard and a vegetable patch. Some the the produce for... More

1oh if only they had some signs. But when we eventally found it we were met by Florence who showed us to our room in an outbuilding of the actual chateau. What a room, it was long, with very old beamed ceiling and a huge canopied bed. The only thing wrong was that the bathroom was in the room. It... More

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
