“High point of our trip”
Stayed at the chateau for 5 nights while on a family trip in the Dordogne area. Everything about the chateau was perfect.
“First time visit to Dordogne ”
On arriving at Chateau de Villars we were greeted with the warmest of welcome from the owners. The accommodation was delightful, clean and comfortable and the food exceptional. Would highly recommend anyone looking for a quiet retreat away from their bustling everyday work load.
Perfect stay in a beautiful little chateau in lovely surroundings. Great hosts, ambience and excellent food. We wished we had booked for a week rather than three days.
