In a bucolic valley in the Périgord Vert, a stately B&B bordering village and fields. Built in the 18th-century, the beautiful house sits in immaculate lawns shaded by lime trees; the silence is blissful. Delightful Caroline and Dominique have expertly converted an annexe to create three elegant, spacious rooms. Finely-dressed beds, antiques and contemporary bathrooms add charm and comfort. Terracotta-floored Agapanthe opens onto the garden, while Escallonia has extra space for a child or two. Breakfast on brioche and home-made jam in the soothing dining room, take a dip in the pool, or hire kayaks to paddle down the Dronne.
