LA GRANDE VUE - LUXURY 4 STOREY HOME, NEAR SARLAT

St Cyprien House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 5 Bathrooms and exquisite views of the Dordogne River Valley.

La Grande Vue is a magnificent 4-storey villa situated in the village of Saint Cyprien, on the sloping hillside above the Dordogne River in the Aquitaine region of France. With rustic stone walls and breathtaking views, La Grande Vue ideal for a holiday at anytime of the year.

The house boasts exquisite views, modern finishes and plenty of space for groups of six to ten people. In winter the double-glazed windows, central heating and two fireplaces keep it cosy and warm; and in summer the thick stone walls keep it remarkably cool, with help from the air conditioning on sweltering hot days.

This 245m2 four-storey house has been recently refurnished to ensure all four bedrooms and the living areas are comfortable and modern. Working from the ground up, the first floor consists of a fully equipped kitchen, with a round table that seats eight; a separate scullery; a guest loo; and a grand dining room. The dining room table also seats eight people and there are sofas around the fireplace, giving it a relaxed, homely feel. A wrought-iron table and chairs are available if you want to sit outside at street level to watch the world go by as you enjoy your morning coffee.

The next level has an open plan sitting room with two separate seating areas, a fireplace and wide balcony. A study/ TV room leads off this living area, fully equipped with a flat screen TV, cable services and free Wi-Fi, which is available throughout the house. There is also a guest bathroom on this level.

The two main en-suite bedrooms are on the third level. One has a semi-enclosed terrace with tables, chairs and a bar fridge. The other two bedrooms are on the fourth level and share a bathroom; one has a three-quarter bed and two single beds, and the other has a double bed and a three-quarter bed.

The house is walking distance from the shops, restaurants and medieval church in Saint Cyprien.

Guestbook comments from the manager
It was an unseasonably wet and cold Saturday afternoon that we arrived in St. Cyprien. Unlocking the door of La Grande Vue we walked into an exquisite space, with its crystal chandeliers, ancient stone walls and its warmth and spaciousness that embraced us all. A remarkable place and beyond our expectations—the website had played-down its magic.



This home became our grand but easy living base for an unforgettable holiday. The house is perfectly situated, overlooking the town and its enchanting alleyways that lure one to explore. The majestic Abbey is opposite the house and every window and glass door affords one a spectacular view of St. Cyprien.



Our first evening we dined at a cozy pizzeria run by a young local couple and were served delicious pizzas with unusual toppings all sourced locally—a place we went back to on our last night. Then early the next morning we woke to the sound of the Abbey’s bells and wandered down to the Sunday morning market in the village.



What a joy to experience an abundance of local food and wines on our doorstep! Piles of Confit de Canard, Foie Gras, Saucisson, olives prepared in different ways and walnuts and local nougat…. We wandered home, to the most beautiful house in St. Cyprien (as we believe it to be), armed with freshly roasted free-range chicken, cherries, artisan breads, cheeses and wines from Bergerac – what a feast.



St. Cyprien itself has many local restaurants, coffee shops, patisseries and a pleasant pub we visited where a local patron sat down at the piano and entertained us all.



The other days were filled with exploring surrounding villages and the exquisite countryside. Each village was a picture of beauty filled with historic churches, buildings, quaint squares, gardens and many had artists whom one could visit in their studios. The Dordogne River weaving its way along offers so much-- but sadly for us, the weather didn’t permit much use of it. It flows past villages, with a backdrop of Walnut trees, caves and homes carved into the rock. Exquisite.



We left with so many things undone—the hikes, the picnics, the trails but weather wasn’t permitting. So we will be back for the same again— and yet there’s winter—with snow and skiing so close by-- what a wonderful base La Grande Vue would be!
