Our stay at Le Lys de Castlenaud was wonderful! Nathalie did a superb job of making us feel welcome at her Medievil B & B. Her kind, personable nature ensured we had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. She even helped us converse with the French speaking guests. Her advice with the local sightseeing, excursions and markets greatly enhanced... More

We (older married couple) stayed in the "Artist Guesthouse". It is very roomy and a great value. Nathalie is a wonderful, conscientious, easy to talk to, very organized and friendly host. Her English is very good. The breakfast is very good. We ate outside in June. Great view. The location is good as a home base for Dordogne highlights. Nathalie... More

We were here for the third time for an extended (5 days) stay in the gite, this time with our daughter who stayed upstairs in the "view" room chambre d'hote, and she was thoroughly delighted with her stay as well. Lys de Castelnaud is especially suited to Americans who sometimes get intimidated by the more formal, even frosty, impression that... More

We stayed here for 4 nights. It is an amazing location in Southern France. We had the first floor apartment (which included a kitchen) and it worked out perfectly. Nathalie Charbonnier is a wonderful and charming hostess/owner at this B&B. There are so many things to do in the Dordogne Valley, including gardens, chateaus, prehistoric paintings in caves, and kayaking... More

This was our favorite stop on our travels through France by far! From the immaculate and home-like setting to the personal and gracious accommodations, Natalys made sure our stay in Dordogne was beyond memorable. She was continuously in touch from the moment I contacted her to reserve our stay to make sure our arrival was stress-free and everything was taken... More

Our travel plans changed at the last minute and we were lucky enough to find ourselves at Le Lys de Castelnaud. The host Nathalys was great at helping us plan our time in the Dordogne region. Nathalys made all the difference in making our last minute visit to the Dordogne fantastic. Le Lys de Castelnaud is a charming, welcoming guest... More

My husband and I just got home from our trip in France. We were blessed enough to travel through much of the country, but our favorite part by far was our time in Dordogne at Le Lys de Castelnaud. I can't say enough about this bed and breakfast and the host. Nathalys has been mentioned in almost every review here,... More

This is a charming B&B with a superb host. The place is very welcoming and the whole family immediately felt at home. Nathalie was a great source of information, she helped us plan our visit to see the cave paintings, visit the castles, tour the street markets in the surrounding villages, and make dinner reservations. The house is nicely decorated... More

A wonderful balance of amenities and charm. A great location to visit castles, villages, and cave paintings. And Nathalie is a terrific source of information on visiting the sites as well as local restaurants. The rooms were comfortable, with fun middle-age charm and great views. The breakfasts were outstanding.

We were fortunate enough to come across this excellent B&B and stated two nights. Would have loved to stay longer but it was booked out, to our disappointment. It is the perfect place to stay to visit the castle and the villages in the area. Natalie is "awesome" and makes you feel at home as soon as you arrive. If... More
