4 rooms


Rooms sleep 2


Charming and stylish – Franck and Pascale were born to run a B&B. On hand with creative apéritifs and inspired ideas for exploring the Dordogne, they make their home a pleasure to visit. Local artisans helped them transform the 18th-century house into a chic retreat, restoring ancient beams and flagstones. Outside, sage green shutters add a cheery flash of colour to the mellow stone façade and there’s a fruit tree filled garden with a pool. Inside, country décor reigns; four immaculate en suite rooms have pretty linen, oak floors and bucolic views. Locally sourced breakfasts of farm eggs, homemade cake and jams are superb.

My partner and I had a fantastic one night stay. We only wished we could have stayed longer. Pascale and Franck are an absolutely delightful couple and marvellous hosts. They have worked tirelessly making La Bruyle not only a beautiful home but a fantastic place for guests. We were blessed with fantastic weather which allowed us to use the very inviting pool and to enjoy the gardens and view. Our room was tastefully furnished and spotlessly clean. Breakfast and dinner outside a total delight, especially having dinner with Pascale and Franck, experiencing their wonderful cooking. Superb.

Beautiful , restored French farmhouse situated in idyllic surrounding countryside. Cultured hosts who make every effort to ensure your stay in their home is comfortable and memorable in every respect .


Lovely BnB. Rooms very spacious and beds big and comfortable. Great lounge-room to relax in and outdoors is very, very nice. Our two dinners with our hosts were delicious, and the conversations even better. Pascale & Frank are wonderful hosts, and their English is much, much better than our French!

La Bruyle has been beautifully converted by Pascale and Franck into an elegant, comfortable and tastefully luxurious b&b. With their warm welcome, and "open house" approach you really do feel relaxed and cared for. Many thanks.

Staying with Pascale & Franck was an absolute delight - they are the most wonderful hosts, relaxed and attentive in exactly the right measure. Their breakfasts and table d'hôtes were delicious and their local restaurant recommendations were the best we had in our time in France. The house has been beautifully restored and is an oasis of comfort and calm close to plenty of places of interest. Definitely one of the highlights of our trip.

Pascale and Franck were perfect hosts. We went to La Bruyle on our 25th wedding anniversary, hoping it would indeed be somewhere special. We could not have asked for more: Pascale and Franck researched the local restaurants to accommodate our not-very-French vegetarian tastes; they arranged a taxi to and from the restaurant; and they suggested a lovely picnic spot, and a great walk. Add to that the beauty of the building and the pool with a glorious view (plus superb weather), and we had an utterly magnificent stay. Many thanks!
