FABULOUS. We spent 6 glorious nights here and cannot wait to return. Book for dinner on your first night and enjoy discussing how terrific it was the following morning over the best breakfast served anywhere. William bakes top notch croissants every morning, makes his own (very special) jam, squeezes the orange juice, serves fresh milk from the farm across the road, and, (if you're there in May) decorates the bowl of fresh fruit with cherries he picked off the tree that morning. All our enchanting meals were served on the delightful terrace overlooking the courtyard and pool.
William is a talented chef. My husband and I have been traveling in France for a decade and go to great lengths to find superb cuisine. I cannot convey how delighted we were with all our meals here. If you appreciate carefully prepared food with fresh ingredients you will LOVE it--William obviously gives a great deal of thought and is very creative in making sure each course complements the others. We had only 3 dinners but next time will eat here every night.
The rooms are lovely and immaculate. Great attention to detail such as fresh flowers in the bedroom. We enjoyed the pool. Our dogs were most welcome had an excellent area for sprinting near the tennis court.
If you are at all mobile you will enjoy the short stroll into Brantôme.
I have never written a review before, but I have been home a week now and cannot stop thinking about our time spent at Le Chatenet. The flavours linger! Our last dessert, which was a poached William, was indescrible. 10/10
William is a marvelous host, warm and welcoming. His wife Jane was not there for our visit but I can't wait to meet her. À la prochaine.
