Château de la Treyne
15 km (9 miles) northwest of Rocamadour, Lacave, Occitania, 46200, France
Certainly the most spectacular château-hotel in the Dordogne, this Relais & Châteaux outpost sits amid Baroque gardens perched over the Dordogne River. Located in Lacave, northwest of Rocamadour, La Treyne was nearly destroyed in the 16th-century Wars of Religion but reconstructed under Louis XIII. Today the Michelin-starred Great Lounge restaurant (no lunch Tuesday–Friday) is a feast of crystal, boiserie, and Louis XIII chairs. Stylish guest rooms range from the stunning Prison Doreé (or "Golden Prison," set atop the castle tower) and the hyper-charming Soleil Levant (the former chapel, now glowing in historic lime and yellow), to a deluxe suite with gorgeous antiques and views over the river.
