The family room turned out to be the most comfortable accommodation we experienced on our 10 day trip to Dordogne. We only needed a 1 night stay for our family of 5 (2 adults, 3 kids) en route to another destination from Bergerac airport and this room was perfect - spacious, nicely renovated, modern bathroom in a countryside setting minutes from the village. Upon arrival and much to our delight, that Friday the village had an outdoor dinner, a concert, and an incredible light show projected onto the centuries old church, the show call "Murmures de Saint Avit Senieur", see http://dordogne-perigord-tourisme.fr/fr/les-murmures-de-saint-avit-senieur-1090.htm . Brigitte and Guy were very friendly and accommodating and did not hesitate to recommend various activities during our stay. Their truffle dog Dino even found a summer truffle in the woods during our stay, and Guy explained a bit about truffles to us. I highly recommend this B&B for any family exploring the beautiful Dordogne region.

- Britavit's B+B rooms are situated in the Dordogne in South-West France, a magnificent region of fortified villages which boasts a heritage unparalleled elsewhere in France, other than Paris, and it is difficult not to be instantly beguiled by its calm and restful ambience. The 'table d'hotes' meals are light and enchanting. Above all our aim is to offer guests a house in which they feel at home; a house which feels lived in and loved. Britavit and the village of Saint Avit Senieur are situated in the heart of the "Perigord Noir", equidistant from Sarlat and Bergerac. Having been renovated by local artisans as well as the owners, the house is magnificent and the garden constantly growing and evolving Britavit makes the ideal base from which to spend a holiday whether your choice of activities is cultural, sporty, foody or you simply intend to relax. ... more less
