Bed & Breakfast
Hello and welcome, we are Jac and Nikki, and this is our little story of the
Chambres d’ hôtes. In the summer of 2016, we decided that we were ready
to swap the south of England for the south of France, starting a new life in
the enchanting medieval village of Issigeac in the southern Dordogne.
We are family of four, with two precious children, a seven year-old son called Louis
and our one year-old beautiful boxer called Gigi.
For us it was important that our next step in both our personal and
professional lives allowed us to infuse our passions and our experience we
have accumulated throughout our careers.
Jac’s prestigious background in hospitality, working in restaurants in the
Effiel tower, as well as in the Moulin Rouge in Paris, meant that we wanted
to start a business which specifically catered for top class comfort and
hospitality to our customers. In addition to this, my background in managing
a travel agency, meant that we also wanted to provide an enriching cultural
experience to our customers. Lastly, both of us have backgrounds in interiors so we wanted to create a space which provides a charming and
vintage aesthetic and experience.
Our goal at Le Doyenne is to treat you with the kind of attention reserved for family, and to provide you with a warm, welcoming and memorable experience.
Breakfast is served each morning and included in our room rate.
.We have a delightful small garden with decked area for you to enjoy.
A 3 course evening meal can be provided subject to availability.
Free wifi is available
