The perfect weekend getaway [La Libertie France]

A while ago friends told me about this little pittoresque gem they knew about in France. They had actually just come back from a weekend there, praising the place. I knew I had to look into it...Turns out that this little bed & breakfast is not your ordinary b&b. More like a small luxury hotel with character. Although situated in France this hotel is run by a swedish couple with many years of experience from top hotels and restaurants. Sometimes all the pieces fall into place. On a vacation, we found this wonderful house in southwestern France. It was the perfect match! It was time to make the leap and finally run our own business and work for ourselves, says the owners. I just love it when people follow through with dreams like this and make something beautiful out of it. Let´s have a closer look!

La Libertie is located in Campsegret, a small hamlet between Périgueux and Bergerac in the Dordogne area. This is what the owners describe as "a really, really good bed & breakfast." However, since it is a b&b it has just a few rooms making it a personal hotel. With the owner's backgrounds in top restaurants the food is said to be fantastic. During October - March La Libertie organises cooking classes. If you don´t want to do that there are many activities in the area to choose from, or maybe just enjoy the silence in the lush garden or, when the weather is good enough, just hang by the pool...The prices for staying here are also really, really good I must say, between 85-95 Euro per room/night for two persons with breakfast included. A bed and breakfast de qualité supérieure!
