Bed and breakfast accommodation is very popular in the south-west region of France, probably due to the rural nature of many of the towns and villages. You can find a good selection of B&B's within the towns and villages but for the real rural French feel then head to the countryside and enjoy a home away from home.
You are spoilt for choice when it comes to 4-star hotels in Dordogne. Whether you want a room with a view, or a place in the heart of Perigueux, there is a property to suit your needs. Some of the hotels are renowned for their gastronomy or their superb views of the countryside (and in some cases - both!). Others have been converted from historical manor houses and have fascinating histories. And all, of course, will provide great service and a comfortable base for your holiday in Dordogne.
Many of the 5-star hotels are grand properties that are attached to golf courses, leading spas or vineyards. However, there are also a number of smaller, more 5-star hotels that have been created from historic buildings that have been painstakingly restored and renovated. Whatever your preference, all offer luxurious bedrooms with all modern conveniences and superb service.
Boutique hotels and guest houses make up a smaller section of the market than you might anticipate, so try to book in advanced for these more unique options. You are more likely to find boutique hotels outside of the main tourist centres of Perigueux and Bergerac, look more to the smaller towns that line the river Dordogne.
With its wealth of chateaux it should come as no surprise that chateaux accommodation is readily available across the Dordogne region. Many located in vineyards and all with a luxurious setting you cannot fail to be disappointed by a chateaux retreat.
Being one of France's most popular tourist destinations you will find a good range of quality budget hotels in the region. Competition allows for some well-priced options in towns such as Sarlat-la-Caneda and Les-Eyzies-de-Tayac.
