Had a great experience. The room was big and the bed was comfortable. The staff was extremely nice and friendly. Great choice for someone with a car in the region.

I felt quite privileged to stay in such an historic building. My room and facilities were excellent. It was great to have a car park. I would like to thank the staff for providing me with gluten free breakfast alternative as I am coeliac - that was very kind. Cadouin is a super place to stay and base for a few days.
