“Perfect”
Reviewed June 1, 2014

This review is LONG overdue. Stayed here with our family (10 and 13 year old kids) in August 2013. We were on an extended trip to multiple countries. This was a HIGHLIGHT of our whole trip. Wonderful hosts, wonderful guests, wonderful place. Family room was comfortable and cute. Food was GREAT. So close to Sarlat, Beynac, the painted caves. It is magical here.

On our 4 week Spring trip through the southern half of France, Le Chevrefeuille B&B was our favorite accommodation. Sara was very welcoming and provided us with useful information about the sights and helpful loaner maps for the area. The included breakfast was the most extensive and delicious of our vacation. Our room was charming and quiet. This location is the perfect central home-base for exploring the beautiful villages and nearby Cro-Magnon caves and museums of the Dordogne region.

Sara and Ian have created a perfect oasis of tranquility in the heart of the Dordogne. The rooms are clean and comfortable with beautiful vistas looking out of the windows. The breakfasts were delightful and plentiful. The pool was a welcome refuge after a day exploring around the beautiful countryside. Ian is a masterchef and his mushroom and chestnut soup divine. Sara was always a mine of information and went out of her way to make us feel at home. No air-conditioning in the rooms but no need since the walls were about 3 feet thick!! Would definitely stay again if we were in the area.

Room Tip: The rooms upstairs in the tower were great.

The reviews say it well – this is a PERFECT stay for families with young children. A safe place for our 8 and 10 year old boys to run, play soccer, swim, and play games with Adam and Alice, even while mom and dad took in a delicious dinner prepared by Ian. There just aren't many destinations that offer this type of open, safe and easy recreation for kids in a country hamlet setting that allow parents to truly relax. Given the family-friendly guest attraction, your kids will never be short of other children to play with.

Sara and Ian are terrific hosts, who are resourceful, responsive and most pleasant. When we arrived after hours our first night, Sara kindly prepared us a snack plate along with a bottle of wine. Sara also helped us look into French camps for our boys who attend a French school in San Francisco.

We stayed in the Grapevine apartment with Breadroom annex, since the Passiflore was already booked for part of our stay, so we had more than enough space and privacy. The kitchens are well equipped making it easy for us to cook meals and even grill on the patio for several nights, enjoying our purchases from the St. Cyprien market on Sunday.

After a stay in London and Paris on the same trip, our family unanimously agreed that Le Chevrefeuille and the Dordogne experience was the gem of our vacation, although a lovely city/country balance overall. We could have easily extended our 1-week stay as we had had several other sites we would have liked to take in. Our highlights included: Font-de-Guame (a favorite), Beynac, Castlenaud, canoeing on Les Vezeres, biking through the rolling hills outside Le Chevrefeuille and exploring a truffle farm.

I hope we are fortunate enough to return to Le Chevrefeuille!

This summer we stayed at the Chevrefeuille for the third time. And it did not disappoint. We were there for a week. It is a wonderful place from which to explore the region. The rooms are clean and spacious and well-appointed. The grounds are lovely. the pool is a welcome addition. And the option of dining there on certain days is great. Ian is an excellent cook. Both he and Sara are superb hosts. The breakfast is among the best anywhere. We will be very happy to return.

We spent five nights here while we explored the Cro-Magnon caves and museums and visited Sarlat. It was perfect - great central location to see the sites, wonderful rooms, fabulous breakfast and really pretty grounds. We went swimming in the nice pool after a long day of tramping around caves. Sara and her family were wonderful hosts. She helped us plan our sightseeing and gave us great suggestions on places to visit and stop for lunch. We also had dinner one night prepared by Ian in their peaceful outdoor courtyard which was delicious. I chose this place partly on the Trip Advisor recommendations which were really on the mark with Le Chevrefeuille.

Used Le Chevrefeuille as a base for three days, as we toured the cave areas, Sarlat, and other sights on this side of Dordogne river. We loved everything- the room, fabulous breakfast, tiny hamlet to stroll. What a pleasure to relax at the end of the day in the gardens with a picnic supper. Sara made us feel at home, helping with sights, maps, and booking a lovely restaurant. Would love to return!!
