Our stay at Le Cariol was divine. Having had a rather busy business trip with numerous locations around Europe we were really looking to relax and unwind. We caught the TGV from Paris and then drove from Angouleme which was fun. Upon arriving at Le Cariol relaxation and bliss seeped into our bodies!
Having stayed at many luxury resorts and hotels around the world I feel confident in saying this place is special. The owners have managed to create a space that provides exceptional traditional beauty while maintaining modern elegance.
When not sleeping/eating/drinking we had fun exploring the area (mostly to do more eating). A great experience was a nearby market in Issigeac picking up some oysters and champagne and having a picnic in a cave!
Next year we look forward to bringing our children who I know will LOVE it all...
Thanks so much to Irene and Martijn, see you soon!
