  • Superb house in a perfect location

    We stayed for 4 nights and would have stayed longer if there had been availability. It was a good choice. The house has been beautifully renovated to a high standard and our room was light and spacious with a lovely view. The dining room is spacious (with more splendid views) and tea and coffee are available throughout the day. The sitting room has lots of seating, books to browse and an honesty bar. It’s really nice to have somewhere to relax, especially if the weather isn’t great. We had as many dinners as we could book and wished we could have eaten in every evening. The food and wine were excellent. The location could not be better, with many places to visit nearby and the possibility of walks. Stephanie had many helpful suggestions of where to go and good local restaurants.
    We have stayed in many Maison d’Hotes and this is one of the very best. Highly recommended.

    • Thank you very much for your fantastic and detailed feedback on your stay ! We hope to see you back whenever you wish.

  • Great hospitality in a wonderful setting

    This is a wonderful old Périgord farmhouse with glorious views from its position above the Dordogne river valley. It has been sympathetically and lovingly restored by its enthusiastic owners and makes an excellent base for exploring this delightful part of France. Rooms are stylishly and inventively decorated with splashes of vibrant colour against the old stone walls. Stephanie is a lively and welcoming host, full of helpful suggestions for places to visit. Les Milandes, which we could see from our bedroom window, will tell you the fascinating story of American-born Josephine Baker and Commarque, in its remote and peaceful setting, conveys a marvellous sense of timelessness. She will guide you, too, to some of their favourite places to eat – we loved the simplicity of Les Courtines in Roque-Gageac where you can watch hot air balloons drift along the river. Breakfasts at Les Hauts are delicious with a range of home-made jams, fresh pastries, juices and refreshing fruit cups. Stephanie also prepares an excellent dinner on three evenings a week when she and Fabrice join their guests to enjoy the meal together.
    Thank you both for sharing your home with us and for making our stay so memorable

    • Thank you so much to you both for your very warm feedback on your stay at home. We loved welcoming you and hope to see you back whenever you wish !

  • Magical Perigord

    We have just returned home from our first magical visit to the Perigord where we stayed with Stephanie and Fabrice (and Cannelle!). It exceeded our expectations in every way–the location, food, camaraderie, and balloon ride were all a dream come true. The house is quiet and peaceful, yet within an easy drive of the caves and chateaus in the region. We look forward to returning in the coming years. Highly recommended.

    • Thanks a lot Arlan for your enthusiastic feedback about your stay at home. You are more than welcome whenever you come back in our region !

  • Mr

    Les Hauts is a wonderfully comfortable place to stay. Stephanie is a very welcoming host, who makes you feel at home immediately.. We had a delicious dinner. The house has been very elegantly restored.

  • Ms

    We had the most wonderful 6 days at Stephanie’s B & B. Not only is the area worth the time but staying with Stephanie is a delight. It is very evident that she loves what she has created & puts her heart & soul into this piece of paradise. The rooms are lovely the breakfast delicious & her home cooked dinners are a must. Until we return…..Merci Stephanie

  • A beautiful, tranquil place to stay!

    We had the most wonderful stay at Les Hauts de Saint Vincent. The house and it’s grounds are beautiful, and the views of the valley are sublime. Stephanie was wonderful, she made us feel right at home, we will 100% be visiting again.

    • Thank you very much Amber for your warm feedback !
      I was very pleased to welcome you as well and am glad you enjoyed your stay so much. I look forward to seing you back

  • Excellent cooking class

    My daughter and I had a cooking class with Stephanie and stayed to eat it with her and two other guests. She is a very good teacher, whether the task is basic or elaborate. The food and the company were great. This will be one of the highlights of our visit to the Périgord.

    • Thank you very much Debbie for your feedback, I enjoyed cooking with you both too !

  • Ms

    My husband and I stayed here for 10 days and were joined by our pregnant daughter and son in law for 7 days. The accommodation was stylish and comfortable and Stephanie could not have been more helpful. She genuinely seems to enjoy meeting her guests and enhancing their visit. Could not reccomend it enough. An all year round delight.

    • Dear Jacqueline,
      Thank you so much for your very warm feedback on your stay at home. It was such a pleasure receiving you with your family, we really enjoyed it !

  • My Daughter and I just returned from a fabulouse say in the Gite at Les Hauts De Saint Vincent it was perfect gave is space to chill but also the availability of advice and an amazing meal cooked for us by Stephanie. Eating together and finding out about the history of the lovely house was relaxing and enjoyable. An amazing area we hope to return soon.

    • Thank you Liz for your very nice feedback on your stay and your compliments on my cooking. I was also pleased to share some time with and your duaghter.

  • A Must Stay

    My family recently stayed four days at Les Hauts de St. Vincent and enjoyed every precious second of our visit. The hosts, Stephanie and Fabrice, were friendly, accommodating, and knowledgable of the sites of the Dordogne from the “sky” and from the land. Superb cuisine was a treat as well! Will we return to Les Hauts de St. Vincent? Very likely!

    • Thank you very much Cheryl for your lovely feedback on your stay at home. It was a real pleasure to welcome you 4 and we’ll be very happy to see you back !

  • Dr

    What a fantastic place! Stéphanie and Fabrice have created a superb guest house, full of character and comfort, with a wonderful warm welcome. The food is local- much homemade- and delicious, and the whole atmosphere is relaxed and inviting. The cooking lesson was great fun, relaxed and I learned a lot. Not to mention that the results were delicious!

    The views from the house and indeed the pool are spectacular. Being able to see Château des Milandes and the Dordogne river is very special, and you’ll see no shortage of birds of prey overhead too.

    It’s a fantastic place to base yourself for a Perigourdine adventure, being only a mile from Beynac and about 2 miles or so from La Roque Gageac, amongst other delights. This is the sort of place that you don’t just visit once. It’s that wonderful that you’ll be planning your next visit before you finish this one!

    • Thank you so much Kathrine for your fantastic and warm feedback ! We feel so happy when our guests enjoy so much their stay at our b&b.
      I know we’ll have another occasion to welcome you and I can’t wait.

  • I want to thank Stephanie and Fabrice for a wonderful time when we stayed at Les Hauts de Saint Vincent for 4 nights. First, the house is fabulous, they totally renovated an old farmhouse to modern standards, the rooms are spacious with great views, there is a large dining room for communal breakfasts and dinners and a huge kitchen in the basement where Stephanie does cooking classes. Second, Stephanie is the perfect host, her breakfasts, homemade cakes, breads, jams with fruit, varied from day to day. She also does dinner for her clients twice a week if they wish to stay in. The location itself is great, there are so many things to see and do in the area., don’t miss the the prehistoric cave drawings. There were many excellent restaurants in the area which Stephanie recommended and was kind enough to make reservations for us. The food everywhere was amazing. The highlight of the stay was certainly our ride with Fabrice in his 4 man hot air balloon. We took off from their back pasture and flew for over an hour. Following the Dordogne river and flying over chateaux and castles was a fabulous experience. Many, many thanks to both Stephanie, Fabrice and their son for a wonderful time in a beautiful and interesting section of France.
