Lovely hotel with comfortable rooms, great atmosphere and very friendly staff. We were in the building across from the mill house and the steps were steep and rather treacherous, which was the only downside. The hotel parking is in an adjoining cave and very convenient.
The restaurant had various fixed menus (a la degustation) and a la carte as well. The food was sublime and the service from the front of house was fantastic. The meals and wine were not cheap but were good value.

The town of Brantome sits on an island, encircled by the River Dronne - it is sometimes described as the Venice of France. I think someone got carried away with that description! A 9th century Benedictine abbey is one of the key attractions, but it is not your run of the mill abbey - it is a troglodyte site, that is part of the church is a cave with a 15th century carved relief. But we discovered that there were even more impressive sites ...
It's dry if a bit cool and the Raven flies along in decent order. The roads are quite empty to start with but then get a lot busier at the start of the afternoon. Guy decides to leave the peage and get to Riberac via the national roads. His memory is, of course, not at all accurate and he doesn't find anywhere that fits his rosy image of the place! So he heads out of Riberac on the Periguex road until he discovers a nice old chateau ...
