Rising from a limestone bluff above the Dordogne River, this romantic 17th-century castle hotel is surrounded by almost 300 acres of formal gardens and forests. Regal public spaces include a candlelit one-star restaurant in the Louis XIII salon, featuring a soaring ceiling of deep octagonal coffers, walls paneled in silk damask and a wide Aubusson tapestry; the elegant wood-beamed Fragonard salon; and a wood-paneled library. There is also a broad river-view terrace ideal for alfresco dining and drinks. Few of the 17 guest lodgings have unappealing views, but vistas of the river valley are the most memorable. All rooms present a lavish period décor as well as modern conveniences, such as master light switches and air-conditioning. Opt for a palatial Junior or Master suite. Amenities include a tennis court, an outdoor infinity pool and a large network of hiking trails. The well-trained staff is formal but very friendly.
