    The Chateau de Losse is an absolute delight and should not be missed. It is not a huge, imposing chateau, it does not overwhelm with its size or grandeur, but it is a real treasure. It sits beautifully among trees, overlooking a valley above the river. It is elegant and beautifully maintained. The house and gardens have much to discover and the woodland walk is shady and cool on a hot day. The chateau contents are tastefully presented and include some real gems of furniture, paintings, tapestry and other items. It presents as a rich family's home, not purely as a museum. The gardens are a lovely mix of formal and informal and an excellent explanation of the chateau and gardens is provided through an audio guide. The restaurant is worth a visit, we had gorgeous glace artisanale, specially made ice cream. Meals, drinks, deserts and other food is also available. The staff were excellent and very friendly, this stood out. We absolutely loved the Chateau de Losse.

    Stumbled across this chateau in the Dordogne. It cost 10 euro each for entry which includes both gardens & chateau. Had a fantastic good few hours here. The gardens are superb & very well kept, the chateau very interesting. We made a quick dash to the coffee shop on site as the heavens opened, & were made to feel very welcome in spite of having soaking wet clothes. We were only planning on having a coffee, but we were sold a piece of gluten free cake which was delicious. Would definitely recommend.
