About Le Chevrefeuille

When we arrived at our new home, we had a dream to create a place in which we would wish to stay; a warm and personal environment but with a professional approach. We fell in love with the Dordogne Valley from the minute we arrived here and as a couple we are passionate about the area and the amazing array of fresh ingredients. With these passions in mind we built our business. We love to pass on both our knowledge of the area, both the touristic and the "off the beaten track" . We are immensely proud of our accommodation, cookery courses and tours and giving our guests the best memories are our priority.

“Book it….A real gem!”

My three children and I stayed at Le Chevrefeuille for 3 nights in July 2014. It was towards the end of a three week trip. We weren't sure that we we were at the right place when we pulled up. After staying in London and Paris, the location felt pretty remote. We were warmly [...]
