2 Best Hotels in Lascaux, The Dordogne

Hotel Restaurant de Bouilhac

$$ | 6 av. Professeur Faurel, Lascaux, 24290, France

Antiques mingle with vintage touches and modern amenities at this lovely 18th-century chateau hotel, a historic property a stone's throw from the Lascaux cave and museum. Each of the 17 rooms are unique, but the first-floor deluxe suites, offering giant balconies and river views, are the most popular. Along with a small indoor pool, the spa offers several advanced technologies to melt away body fat and cellulite, if that's your thing. The acclaimed gastronomic restaurant (where you can dine by the fireplace in cooler weather) is closed on Tuesday and Wednesday, so if you want to dine in the hotel be sure to book accordingly.

Pros

  • Good spa
  • Great on-site restaurant
  • Lovely decor throughout

Cons

  • No dinner on Monday or Tuesday
  • Near a busy road
  • Breakfast not included in price

Manoir d'Hautegente

$ | Coly, 24120, France

Originally a forge, this old, ivy-covered edifice occupies a pastoral nook by the Coly River—a lovely vista to enjoy from your guest room or the impressive restaurant and less expensive bistro. The modernized lodgings have fabric wall coverings and colorful curtains that match the bedspreads; four duplexes can be found in the old miller's home nearby. The restaurant (closed Wednesday and Thursday; no lunch weekdays) specializes in foie gras; if you're not convinced, check out the array of it at the hotel shop.

Pros

  • Cozy family feel
  • Close to Sarlat
  • Gorgeous setting and gardens

Cons

  • Bathrooms need updating
  • Rooms suffer somewhat from an attack of French Moderne style
  • Some rooms could do with an update
