We stayed at Chapeau Melon for about 5 days and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Brian and Sandra are really friendly hosts and are happy to help whenever. We stayed in a studio, however there is also a larger apartment which you can rent. The studios are really charming with comfortable modern furniture but still have original features like old wooden beams, which give a really French countryside feeling. The enclosed balcony/ french doors have a beautiful view of the river Dordogne and the ancient bridge which crosses it. This bridge is lit up at night in the arches and reflects off the water which looks fantastic. The on site restaurant had a great choice of food, ranging from traditional French cuisine as well as typical English dishes, and were all delicious. The reasonable prices and excellent quality of the food made dining in an easy choice! The ‘jolie’ town of Souillic has a brilliant location for exploring the many attractions such as the underground river and the enormous caves of Padirac, which were both breathtaking. We would definitely stay here again and would recommend it for a relaxed and enjoyable trip to the Dordogne.
