This hypnotic country hotel is a potent visual reminder of what makes la belle France so unforgettably belle: a four-star French heaven in the most handsome mill you could imagine, set on the banks of a delightful trout-serenaded brook. The 15 rooms slumber peacefully beneath beams and exposed stone in three buildings. Rambling passageways and staircases link the trio. Some rooms have private terrace overlooking the river, pristine green lawns and pool beyond. Read expert review

Manoir d'Hautegente

Coly, Dordogne, France

It offers a swimming pool with swoonsome views, river fishing on tap, and a boutique selling homemade jams, chutneys, foie gras and cassoulet de confit de canard. The hotel's well-thumbed guestbook is riddled with celebrity signatures. Read expert review

Château des Vigiers

Dordogne, France

8 Telegraph expert rating

This 17th-century château cocoons guests in a magical haven of peace, serenity and old-fashioned romance. A snooker room and three exquisitely furnished salons – one with library and wood-burning stove – provide indoor distraction, while an outdoor pool is open May to September. The estate spa has a sauna, steam room and treatment cabins. Undoubtedly the big highlight, though, is the 27-hole golf course wrapped around two lakes, plum orchard and 17th-century dovecote.

Château de la Treyne, Dordogne

Château de la Treyne

Dordogne, France

9 Telegraph expert rating

From its dramatic cliff setting to its fairytale towers, refined period interior and formal French gardens, this 14th-century castle is a brazen heart-stealer. The hotel has a heated infinity pool, tennis court, Romanesque chapel and beautiful garden with century-old cedar trees. But what really stands out is the overwhelming graciousness, passion and enthusiasm of charismatic owner Stéphanie and her team. Read expert review

La Chartreuse du Bignac, Dordogne

La Chartreuse du Bignac

Saint-Nexans, Dordogne, France

9 Telegraph expert rating

This 17th-century manor, squirreled away in splendid isolation in the southern Dordogne, ticks all the boxes for a perfect weekend away. Plunge into the pool amid a 360-degree panorama of rolling hills, potter on the lake in a rowing boat, sip cocktails by the fire and revel in the natural 'art de vivre'. A clever use of original features – mini cinema in the vaulted cellar or manorial dovecote that stands like sculpted art in front of the house – ensures you never forget its history.
