We spent just one night in Le Chatenet but we'd spent a month with no doubt.
I travelled two weeks with my mothe in a gastronomique/historic route around the Dordogne & the Lot region. Our goal was to enjoy ourselves with the magnificent lanscapes and also get a little taste of the great products of the of the south of France. We certainly did!
Our stay in Le Chatenet was our last night before we went back home to Barcelona and was a perfect way to finish this trip off.
Jane and William manage the 'Gentilhommière' in a way you feel at home. They are extremely interesting couple and take care of any little detail to make your stay unforgettable.
Because our trip was mostly about enjoying the food and discovering new flavours, I must point out that we had maybe the finest meal in all our trip (and I asure you we had many in very good places). William prepared a superb dinner with excelent local ingredients such as melon with cured ham (it's better the one from Spain known as 'Jabugo' or 'de bellota' but was good enough), magret du canard (duck breast), vegetables, foie gras, rilletes, cheese, and other local specialities. We had our meal on the terrace we shared with other customers (3 or 4 tables). Jane was a perfect host and William was going in & out from the kitchen. I had the impression they really do care about giving an excellent attention to customers and that they enjoy themselves on the route.
Next morning we had a wonderful breakfast before we take the car home.
I strongly recommend this place because it has all you could need: great state and fantastic gardens, amazing owners and excellent food. What else I would wish?
I'll be back for sure but not only one night. It's worth every penny it cost.
