A lovely hotel beneath a clifftop castle in the village of Lacave, with breakfast and a welcome drink
For gourmands and wine lovers craving a relaxing stay in southern France’s Midi-Pyrénées region, this charming farmhouse-turned-boutique hotel is ideal. Le Pont de l'Ouysse's location is simply stunning; you’ll be right by the beautiful river in the rural village of Lacave, beneath the clifftop Belcastel Castle, with the Ouysse and Dordogne valleys on your doorstep.
What started as a hotel-café in 1886, when a stone bridge was built over the River Ouysse, is now a sleek family operation run by chef Daniel Chambon and his son, Stéphane. There are gorgeous gardens, a lovely outdoor pool and hot tub, a sublime riverside terrace, and 14 unique guest rooms with traditional French décor, ultra-comfy beds and all the mod cons you’ll need.
Spend your days drinking in the spectacular countryside views, checking out the fascinating caves, and visiting the nearby villages of Rocamadour, Loubressac, and Carennac. Post-sightseeing, head to the property’s buzzed-about Michelin-starred restaurant to sample the owner-chef’s reliably satisfying gourmet cuisine, paired with remarkable French wines.
