Ideally situated in the tranquil hamlet of Le Cambord in the heart of the Dordogne, La Blanquette B&B is nestled on top of a hill with views over the stunning Dordogne valley and surrounding countryside. As well as lovely lawned areas dotted with pretty flowers and fruit trees there is a sparkling pool and several acres of woodland criss-crossed with walking trails and with the remains of ancient stone buildings.
At La Blanquette we don't allow children under 12 meaning that the vibe and atmosphere is one of peace and relaxation.
Each of the guests' beautiful bedrooms has a private shower room or bathroom, lounge seating for two, a 32" flat screen television with a choice of either UK channels or French channels, and tea and coffee making facilities.
Breakfast is served in our pretty breakfast room between 8am and 9am except on Sundays when it is half an hour later. Breakfast consists of freshly baked bread and pastries, a selection of cold meats, cheeses and fresh fruit, cereals, muesli and home-made jams and chutneys. We also offer a daily hot special, examples include: sliced brioche cooked French style and served with a cherry and vanilla compote; American pancakes with bacon and maple syrup, crepes, omelette with Sarladaise potatoes and cheese. Mmmmmm delicious!
There is an honesty bar stocked with wine, beers, soft drinks and snacks. Perfect when you fancy a bottle of chilled rosé next to the pool!
If guests don't feel like venturing out to a restaurant, with notice we can prepare a Plat Paysan to be enjoy around the pool or in room. This is a traditional platter consisting of local produce including charcuterie and cheeses served with salad and breads.
