They get many walkers and cyclists through here, so breakfast is a nice mix of pastries, yoghurts, breads, cereals and cakes. Secure bike store. Free wifi. Bar/lounge area for relaxing, or take a stroll out through the picturesque village or by the river. This is a good value-for-money option.

A touch of luxury hidden away in the Dordogne countryside, around 24km from Bergerac. A golf country club with an onsite restaurant, it aso has bike hire for guests. Accommodation is in the main chateau or there's (more affordable) space in the adjoining 'relais' section, including family rooms.
