Vieux Logis was a discomforting experience. The location is delightful in a classic Perigord village. The grounds are magnificent -- complex array of sites and trees and plantings that are a delight. The staff was uniformly friendly, helpful and gracious. And though we didn't eat there, the dining room was elegant.
This places needs a good multimillion dollar renovation. The rooms are a sad collection of what the French call bricabrac, and what we call yard sale furniture. We were lucky to have a choice of rooms because the first three we saw were gloomy, cheaply furnished and the bathrooms were tiny with Home Depot-style stall showers.
We were there on bright, sunny spring days and yet we did whatever we could to avoid our suite, even with its many windows. And even the swimming pool was scaly and desperately needed a repainting and refinishing apart from, apparently, being unheated.
The lounge areas are beautiful and personal and what one hopes for in a quaint village. And the outside sitting areas are beautiful, as is the splendid village. But this place needs a serious renovation of its rooms.
Note -- the village has only two restaurants. Thee so-called pizza place had some of the best fois gras we've ever had. The Bistrot, run by the hotel, was hit-and-miss but where they hit, was very good.
IF and when they update from the 70s yard sale furniture and redo the bathrooms, this will be a delight. But for now, its a great location and if the weather is good and you aren't stuck in your rooms, you can have a pleasant stay., But in bad weather, ouch!
