We loved La Licorne. When we arrived for our 5 night stay we were offered a welcoming drink and had a nice talk with Isabelle, our hostess, in the lovely garden. She speaks very good English and was very patient with our miniscule amount of French. The accommodations were perfect; sparkling clean with comfortable beds and linens. We could not... More

If you want to spend a day or a week in this unspoilt part of the Dordoigne then there is only one place to stay and that is here at La Licorne. Even though we arrived rather late due to the delights of rush hour Bordeaux, we were welcomed by the ever smiling Isabelle and her charming husband Herve. Within... More

From the moment Herve welcomed us with refreshments in the garden, our stay at La Licorne was delightful. Our room in the 12th century building was elegant and comfortable, and the grounds with pool, romping dog, and flowing stream made us feel like manorial lords. Best of all was the magnificent dinner prepared by Isabelle: five aperitifs made from her... More

La Licorne is one of only a few buildings in the picturesque village of Valojoulx, around a 10-minute drive from Montignac. The accommodations, hospitality and overall experience were among the best we have had in France, and we highly recommend it.

We had a wonderful stay at La Licorne. We were on a self-guided bike trip through Dordogne, and this was a quiet, lovely reprieve after long days of biking. The rooms are simple but nicely-appointed, and the pool, ping pong, and soccer-playing dog made our kids (13 and 16) very happy. The food was excellent and very, very plentiful. The... More

Traveling through France with friends, we stopped at La Licorne for a one night stay and were absolutely enchanted! From the historic structures to the comfortable, cozy, clean accommodations to the beautiful, flower-laden, well-groomed grounds to excellent meals to the charming, surrounding village for exploring, all combined to exceed our expectations. Furthermore, our host and owner was delightful & engaging,... More

Stayed one night in this B§B with my daughters, perfect location to explore the Dordogne's pre-historic sights, especially Lascaux and le Thot. In a tiny picturesque village, this property has a great feel. Rooms are confortable, clean and quiet. Dinner was good but not excellent (expect the usual duck fare) but breakfast is particularly good (home-made cakes and jams, little... More
