Heaven on earth - a soulful B&B for country lovers
I chose this B&B due to its Dordogne location, and the country life depicted by the photos. Our experience was even better than expected! The sheer size and rich history of >400 years of the farm, and liveliness coupled with tranquility are difficult to reflect in photos. Our most hospitable and thoughtful hosts, Vincent and Xavier, both are fluent in English and well traveled, made us feel like visiting friends rather than hotel guests. A few hours after we settled in at our room, which was spacious and well appointed with quality materials, and anything you might need on a trip, Vincent cooked us a country dinner: homemade apéritif to go with homemade pate foie gras, foie gras entree with freshly picked vegetables from their garden, local cheese and wine, followed by red berries from their strawberry farm. It's delicious! We talked hours over the meal. A few hours ago we didn't even know each other's existence! Vincent provided excellent local tour information and suggestions, which we took and had great time. Mingling with the hosts and their fellow villagers at a local bar watching World Cup soccer game between France and Belgium was a unforgettable event. Strolling with Xavier in the farm, relaxing in the gorgeous swimming pool, and talking with our hosts ended up taking away some touring time, but we wished to just spend more time in the farm! It's great place to enjoy nature, country life, relaxing and renew, be it by yourself, or with your spouse, or entire family!
