“A very enjoyable stay with a pleasant welcoming couple”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

We have just spent two enjoyable days residing at this B+B in the Dordogne.
Our room was very clean, well decorated and breakfast was excellent. We were served with fresh strawberries each morning followed by a selection of tasty breakfast products in an attractive country-style decor.
Our hosts were very informative regarding local activties and attractions.
We would recommend this B+B to our friends.

We were so excited about going to the Dordogne. We were so excited about staying at this Chambre d'Hote. We were so excited to drink the wine and taste the fois gras and cheese of the region.

Well...the excitement was swiftly abated within 30 seconds of arrival.

We were not greeted with a welcome or a hello, but with a "if you don't want to stay here, you can leave." What was she talking about?

Sure it was tough to find the place and to make the very difficult turn onto their driveway, but we never expressed any frustration or negativity. What was she - a mind reader?

She repeated at least three times that line that if we wanted to leave it was fine. This was the most bizarre owner of a B&B we had ever met.

There was none of the typical welcome tea, coffee or drink. The room was cozy but extremely small.

We asked if there was a place to eat in town. She said no, everything was booked and recommended a place 20 minutes away. Since we had driven all day, we looked in town and found a wonderful restaurant.

When we returned to the house, she asked how our meal was and we said we did find a restaurant in town the Ancre D'or and had a very nice meal. Well... not the right answer... she was not happy we did not go to the restaurant she recommended.

Next morning at breakfast...no greeting, just the cold shoulder.

After the day's outings, we returned with some wine and cheese and because it was raining, we asked where we could eat inside. She said that no food or drink is allowed anywhere inside the house - stating "there are no public areas, this is our house."

For a Chambre d'Hote to not have any public areas in the house is the most unusual situation we have ever encountered in 35 years of travelling.

This woman is not suited to running a Chambre d'Hote. She does not have the graciousness it takes to be in that business.

Too bad .. it is a pretty property.
