IMG_2263We packed up from Four au Pain with considerable regret, it is a great spot and our hosts very welcoming. We'll plan to return.

The drive through the deserted (it's sunday) country roads through Castlemoron, Bergerac, Riberac and Nontron to St Junien is just superb. The road is variable with a great surface in part and just horrible in others but overall it's a great run.

There was an absolutely huge lunch at Au Bon Accueil a road side cafe at St Vincent between Bergerac and Riberac, luckily we had only opted for one course. Amazing value.

We get an adequate room at the Boeuf Rouge in St Junien but they do have some very small ones so be cautious. You'll probably want the Comfort + rooms

There's a pool but it's covered and probably 2 million degrees inside!!!! We'll try anyway.IMG_2270


The pool was great and after a walk we concluded at the hotel resturant which was the only choice for a Sunday as everything else appeared to be closed. The rooms are nicer than the food which was not the worst of the trip but far from the best.
