If you are visiting St Emilion or the area, this chateau is the perfect base. Isabelle, my hostess, and her husband thought of every detail when they renovated this lovely little chateau on the banks of the Dordogne. Every room feels luxurious and comfortable. From the bathroom fixtures to the bed linens to the soaps and shampoo, everything was carefully chosen and is wonderful. In addition to the individually decorated rooms (no two are alike but all that I've seen are lovely), there are common rooms on the ground floor - a beautiful, huge salon, a TV room (although there are TVs in each room), the dining room and a billiard room. The lovely welcome coffee was just the first bit of excellent service I experienced at the Chateau. Isabelle recommended that I have dinner my first night at the Auberge Saint-Jean, a restaurant a 5 minute walk from the hotel in the little town of Saint-Jean-de-Blaignac, and she made a reservation for me. It was superb. My only regret during my stay at the Chateau de Courtebotte was to have missed the dinner Isabelle and Pascal served at the Chateau one evening. I chose not to attend because I wasn't sure of my schedule that day - but I really regret missing it! Everyone else staying at the Chateau (whom I met at the breakfast table) had attended and said the food was magnificent and it was an experience not to be missed. The breakfast that Isabelle served was delicious - homemade muffins and crepes, and baguette and croissants from the local bakery with a delightful selection of jams and perfect lattes - so I was not surprised that the dinner was excellent. Well, I will have to return and I will be sure to join the dinner next time! I had booked a room in the pavilion but Isabelle upgraded me as she had the space available (a rainy May mid-week). She showed me a couple of rooms and I chose the Concerto - a huge room with a huge bathroom, decorated with oversized lush velvet pink armchairs. I loved sitting at the window and looking out at the river. I highly recommend this lovely hotel with the proprietors who could not be more helpful with any and every request.
