In April of 2008 a division of Newsweek called Budget Travel released a list of Secret Hotels in the Dordogne, not a bad place to start when planning a trip to the Dordogne. We offer a hotel search on our partner site France Hotel Booking just for the Dordogne. Trip Advisor also has an extensive Dordogne, France hotel section. An interesting hotel is the Hotel Montaigne. It is a small hotel, but is very charming.
Fodor’s Dordogne Choice – Château de la Treyne
Fodor’s choice of hotel in the Dordogne region of France is Château de la Treyne. Fodor’s says “Certainly the most spectacular château-hotel in the Dordogne, this Relais & Châteaux outpost sits in splendor in enchantingly Baroque gardens that are perched over the Dordogne River.” The only “Con” listed on Fodor’s for Château de la Treyne is the price. A Fodor’s user takes a different view of the hotel: “Who are they trying to kid. They’re charging top whack Ritz, Four Seasons prices for a Best Western service. At 800 euros a night for a room you expect so so much more. The front of staff appears to be wholly operated by a bunch of feckless surly sullen sour faced trouts.” The best bet, as with all hotels, is to do some research and make your own determination about a hotel. Fodor’s on one hand, an independent traveler on the other. Address: La Treyne, 21 km (13 mi) northwest of Rocamadour, Lacave, 46200 Phone: 05-65-27-60-60 Fax: 05-65-27-60-70 www.chateaudelatreyne.com
