My wife and I stayed here two nights in October so we could take a class at the cooking school. Our large room overlooked the beautiful grounds and was very clean and comfortable. The hosts were very gracious and made us feel right at home. The breakfast was superb with many choices. We would definitely stay here again.

A delightful garden for a large party of friends. Our hosts were so gracious and a good time was had by all. The rooms are comfortable and the château is oh so charming, located in the center of all that makes the Dordogne a favorite travel destination

This place is so charming. Sarah, Ian and their two children are terrific. Ian cooks dinner 4 nights a week and we stayed for each one. It was the best food we had while in southern France (which is really saying something!). The breakfasts were terrific. There was so much to choose from; cheeses, meats, different breads, hard boiled eggs, cereals and coffee, tea and hot chocolate. You eat outside in the courtyard under an awning.
We look forward to returning to Le Chevrefeuille with our grown children. It is a VERY special place run by very special people.

Our family of two adults and three children (ages 10-16) stayed at Le Chevrefeuille for three nights in June, 2011. It was one of the highlights of our trip to France! We had two rooms, and both were very comfortable and beautifully furnished. We enjoyed the delicious dinners prepared by the owner on two of our nights there, and those meals were among our best in France. They even catered to the kids' tastes. Breakfasts were also outstanding. Our kids also loved playing soccer in the big yard, and took a swim in the new pool. There is a family-friendly environment at Le Chevrefeuille, and the hospitality was very warm. The surrounding area is beautiful--and we enjoyed activities including canoeing and touring caves. We would love to come back some time!

We (my boyfriend, my mother, my aunt and my 12 year old cousin) spent October visiting various B&Bs in France and this was by far the best! It is a lovely area, not as heavily populated with tourists as many others, and Le Chevrefeuille is a great place to stay to see it all. Rooms are spacy and comfortable, showers are good and it is the little extras, like the garden setting to let you sit and read a book and watch the sunset, which really help make it great. The price is more than reasonable. Sara and Ian really go out of their way to make sure you have everything you need and to give you any information or details or opening times, etc., but they also recognise the joy of just finding things out for yourself and are not pushing itineries on you, which is a real relief. If you are there for the evening meal, we highly recommend that you try it!

We arrived at Le Chevrefeuille for a two night stay with the express purpose of attending their cooking school and visiting Font du Gaume which is located just 5 minutes away. We arrived at their rural property with multiple buildings and we were oriented by owner Sarah who with her husband Ian moved to the area from England about 16 years ago. They have called this home and raised their children in this beautiful setting and developed the property to include a wonderful cooking school as well as apartments to accommodate larger group and family stays. We were shown to our room which was just charming with beautiful quilts, a lovely bathroom and a wonderfully comfortable bed. It was spotlessly clean. There was space in another area to keep refrigerated items and an honor bar in the breakfast room. The property also has a swimming pool. The cooking school is conducted outdoors in a covered area with multiple workstations and a long dining table. We loved the school which included a trip to the St. Cyprien market with expert guidance from Ian. We spent the entire day preparing courses with dining interspersed. It covered both lunch and dinner for us. The next morning we arose early for breakfast and headed directly to Font du Gaume to tour the cave. We so enjoyed our stay and I would recommend it for families traveling with children as well as couples.

I just spent a week at Le Chevrefeuille exploring the region, eating fantastic food prepared by chef Ian; relaxing in a beautiful home created by his wife, Sara; and enjoying the company of the other guests. A couple of years ago, my wife and I took a full day cooking class taught by chief Ian and we had a fabulous time learning how to prepare duck confit and other local specialties. So when presented with an opportunity to return to Le Chevrefeuille, I grabbed it. The recipes of the region relies on a wonderful an array fresh ingredients and the cooking class taught me how to use them to prepare outstanding meals. With an eye to every detail, Ian and Sara have transformed the farm house into a welcoming home away from home. Between the swimming pool, bicycles and chickens, there are plenty of things to keep a family busy.

Arriving at Le Chevrefeuille is like coming home. Our hosts Sara and Ian provide everything you could need to be comfortable and relax in their complex with B&B and apartments. We were so impressed with our welcome and recommend a visit to their beautiful part of the world! We also enjoyed a cooking class with Ian today - so much fun! You can book directly with them for classes and accommodation.

Our family booked a private cooking class with the owner and made delicious goat cheese salad and Chocolate Lava Cake. YUM! We had the quintessial French location in a beautiful courtyard surrounded by aromatic herbs and flowers. Lovely!! Local Fresh Walnuts were on the table for us whenever we wanted. Breakfast was fabulous with fresh local ingredients. Location was easy for the area to visit castles, and cave drawings.

My family and I had a wonderful day cooking with Ian and Sarah. The course kicked off at 9am with a trip to the markets at Le Bogue. Ian's knowledge of local produce and traditions of the area was excellent and we learnt a lot there.
Once we returned to the cooking school, we started preparing our meal. I loved that we cooked each course and then sat down to eat it before moving on to the next course. Ian is an outstanding teacher and the day was full of fun and laughter.
My parents didn't want to cook so we able to join us for the meal and watch us preparing the food which made it very inclusive.
It was a brilliant day spent at Le Chevrefeuille and I highly recommend a cooking class here with the fabulous Ian.
Thank you Ian and Sarah, we loved every minute.

Come back anytime, it would be a pleasure to do it all again. 😗😗Ian & Sara.

Hi, Le Chevrefeuille is in a rural location with restaurants, post office, shop at 1.5 kms(20 mins walk). Even if you stay in a village or town in the Dordogne Valley, having a car is recommended to reach all the wonderful and diverse tourist sites on offer in the area. From Paris the best option is to TGV train to Bordeaux, connect at Libourne for Perigueux and hire a car from there to drive the remaining 50 mins. There is no quick way into the Valley. No public transport apart from train once you are here and taxi guides which while are efficient can be inflexible. I hope this helps.

Hi Peter, Thank you for your question. I am sorry for the delay in response as we were unaware this section exists in tripadvisor and we were not notified that a question had been raised. We are centrally located for all the tourist attractions however the we are in a rural location and a car is necessary as public transport is limited. We see that you have booked with us via booking so I will contact you through this agent.
