Fodor's Expert Review Le Vieux Logis

Trémolat, Nouvelle-Aquitaine, 24510, France Fodor's Choice

Built around the most gorgeous dining room in the Dordogne, this vine-clad manor house in Trémolat is one of the region's top hotels. The warm guest rooms vary in size, but most face the well-tended garden and a rushing brook; the best of the bunch have terra-cotta tile floors, stone walls, and suitelike bathrooms. The lounge is très chic, with exposed beams, Louis XIII–style furniture, and mounted faïence plates over the fireplace, while the one-Michelin-starred gourmet restaurant is a vision in half-timber and pink-and-red paisley fabrics. Its six-course dinner menu might include chef Vincent Arnould's forte—veal in a mustard sauce. Less expensive fare is available from a second restaurant, the wildly popular Bistrot de la Place, located in a house at the gates to the property.
