Chambre d'hôtes - Bed and Breakfast

Welcome to Le Bourdil Blanc, your home for the duration of your holiday.

Bed and BreakfastYou can either bed and breakfast at the Bourdil and choose on some nights to stay in for dinner. ( Bernadette is an excellent French cook) , you can cater for yourself or you can go out for dinner. The owner has written a local guide book and her expert advice as to where to dine and what to do in the area can help make your holiday in the Dordogne something special.

From the moment you turn into the tree-lined drive that leads up to the house, you'll feel your body and mind relax as you realise your holiday has really started.

As you drive up to the house you will glimpse through the trees on the right the tennis court and swimming pool, and to the left you will probably see one or two of our horses looking out from their stables in the barn.

Le Bourdil Blanc is a beautiful 18th century manor house, recently restored to its former glory and now a warm, friendly and elegant home comfortably set in its own private grounds extending to over 7 acres.

Aside from the heated pool, tennis court and stable barn, the grounds also feature an ancient pigeonnier, and behind the house is a huge meadow garden, a small fishing/boating lake, a croquet lawn, some lovely mature trees, all bounded by a delightful trout stream. From the house one can enjoy beautiful views over woodlands and fields.

Although Le Bourdil Blanc is a private house we encourage all guests to treat it as his or her own. Guests quickly settle in to a 'house party' mode, relaxing around the log fire with a glass of wine and enjoying each other's conversation.
