Lovers of antiquity will appreciate the relaxing atmosphere of the Côté Rivage. The seven extremely comfortable and tastefully decorated rooms offer for the most part, a magnificent view over the Dordogne… a spectacle of great beauty. Fully air-conditioned, they are equipped with flat screen television, wi-fi, hair dryers and direct access telephones.

While taking breakfast on the private terrace overlooking the river, you may catch a glimpse of majestic swans and wild ducks as they swim by. The view will tempt you to seek out the unique heritage of the region – one of the finest in France.
For a simple overnight stop or for a longer stay, you will come under the spell of this little picture postcard hotel nestled at the foot of the village of Badefols sur Dordogne, surrounded by historic houses, one of which was an ancient Presbytery. Sitting below the ruins of the ancient medieval castle, originally of the Gontaut-Biron family, the village has always occupied a strategic position on the river.

The charming hotel-restaurant Côté Rivage is classified 3 stars. The picture is set… you are well and truly in a place to dream, a discrete stopover for a refreshing rest.

Imagine the river of times past, magnificent, majestic and eternal – the “River of Hope” – the little towpath, below the hotel, where one can imagine the boats, their barrels and other merchandise on the carts, the cries from one side of the river to the other to hail the boatmen.
