Would highly recommend this place. We used it as a stopover from north to south France. The property is just 10 minutes from the motorway (A10). Staff and owners are all very friendly, attentive and professional. Accommodation is in a converted chapel and is on the banks of the Dordogne River. We had a wine tasting session which involved seeing how the wine was made and then trying the various wines available - all great. There are only 3 rooms at this small family run hotel and we stayed in a family room which was spacious and very pleasant for the 4 of us. We had dinner in the evening. There was no choice but the food was amazing and suited the children as well - all local produce. The desserts were brilliant and all hand made. The only down side was the mosquitoes from the slow flowing Dordogne which came out and attached at night so make sure you bring repellent. Overall, this was a fantastic find and I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a relaxing hotel, good value for money and friendly owners/staff.
