Le Moulin du Roc
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 29 July 2007

We spent two nights at the Moulin Du Roc in July 2007 and found the hotel surpassed our high expectations from viewing the hotel's own website.
The hotel is situated in Champagnac de Belair, a village 10 minutes drive from Brantome. It is well signposted as you enter the village on the road from Brantome.
When booking, we selected from the website the "Ble" Room for its price, view and style and were not disappointed, though I wouldn't recommend it for anyone over 6ft tall due to the sloping ceilings and beams! We had a lovely old 4 poster bed (see photo) with the mill's water wheel virtually under our window.
The hotel sits alongside the river with beautiful and extensive gardens, some of which are accessed via the hotel's own bridge. There is an outdoor pool with changing facilities across the lawn, along with tennis court.
Breakfast and dinner were both served on the terrace beside the river. We ate at the hotel on our first night and it was a set 6 course meal consisting of fois gras 'mis en bouche', a chilled tomato soup, a chicken and vegetable terrine, then a choice of main course (one of us had lobster at a supplement, the other had lamb), followed by a dessert selection (a whole chocolate tart for the two of us and a bowl of fruit and panacotta each, then a selection of homemade style chocolates and coffee. The quality was excellent and we amazed ourselves by scoffing the lot!
Breakfast was a basket of pastries and bread, a glass of orange juice, hot drink, yoghurt and a pot of creme brulee, of all things! We noticed that some other guests were having boiled eggs one morning and asked if we could have scrambled egg, but when we checked out we found we had been charged 5 euros each for a small bowl of scrambled egg.
We didn't have too much time to explore Champagnac but from what we saw it was a traditional french village with an old centre, just had a couple of shops and another small hotel but no obvious dining possibilities. Brantome was therefore where we headed for our other evening meal. It is a really beautiful town, known as the Venice of Perigord for its position on an island surrounded by the river Dronne. (NB: its also a good place if you enjoy canoeing, as you can hire a canoe for an afternoon and canoe to Bourdeilles, tranversing 7 weirs on route!). It also has an impressive Abbey. There are numerous eating options in the town - we tried Le Fil d'Eau on the water's edge which specialises in fish and had a good meal, though were unable to sit on the attractive terrace beside the river due to rain.
We highly recommend this hotel for its idyllic and relaxing setting and excellent dining. Its also an ideal base for visiting Brantome and the region.

That was our third time to this enchanting gem. We are almost reluctant to share the knowledge of its existence with the rest of the world… The rooms are all amazing. Bathrooms implacable (with Hermes Toiletries), the food divine and the service and atmosphere – magical… If you are lucky to stay and eat there you are about to experience one of the most delightful times one can hope for.
I you stayed here before – please note that the owners invested in upgrading the common areas lately, which is reflected in the prices – but still a good value for money.

very freindly staff. Recommend dinner on the terrase...
Breakfast is wonderful with suprises...

My wife and I stayed at the hotel for only two days and one evening however it was the best hotel setting we visiting during our honeymoon in France, September 2004. I should describe it as an "inn" as opposed to a hotel with beautiful grounds, idyllic rooms and a wonderful restaurant setting. Arriving by car, it may be difficult to find for the uninitiated but this can be expected when travelling in rural areas however the difficulty in finding the Moulin adds to its mystic as a hidden gem. I would recommend this to anyone travelling in this area. We used it as a mid point for travel between lower Loire and Dordogne areas of France. We are Canadian but still cannot speak French that well however the staff were ever attentive and always were accommodating. I’ve stayed at Relais Chateaux accommodations and this inn was on par or exceeds this level of destinations.
