St Cyprien House Rental Photos and Description
House, 2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths (Sleeps up to 4)
This is a historic townhouse in the center of Saint Cyprien, a picturesque hill town in the heart of Périgord Noir. The walls date to the 12th century, and the house is a regular stop on the town's historic walking tour. The top floor offers superb views over the town, and over the Dordogne Valley. PLEASE NOTE that this house is not well suited very young children, nor for those with mobility limitations.
Ideal base for exploring the Périgord Noir: close to Sarlat, Les Eyzies (with its famous prehistoric sites), the châteaux of Beynac and Castelnaud, the walled town of Domme, and many other enchanting places. And of course, all of Périgord is a mecca for foodies; local restaurants and farmers' markets have superb offerings.
When you're not out exploring the surrounding area, take advantage of St. Cyprien's scenery, its river beaches (just 1 1/2 kilometers from the house), its thriving farmers' market, nearby activities like canoeing and horseback riding.

About Brian White
I am a toy designer and computer games artist in the San Francisco bay area, but when I can break away from regular life here there's nothing I enjoy more than spending a few weeks in St Cyprien with my family.
Brian White purchased this house in 2005
Why Brian White chose St Cyprien
The house is very close to the Dordogne River, where we enjoy canoeing and swimming. There are literally one thousand castles in the region, with two of the most spectacular, Chateau de Beynac and Castelnaud, being minutes from St Cyprien. France's national prehistory museum is located in the next village, Les Eyzies, which is also home to several wonderful caves with prehistoric paintings, like Font de Gaume. Also, the climate is very agreeable!
What makes this house unique
St Cyprien is the ideal sized village, with several terrific restaurants, bakeries, cafes, banks, and a vibrant local life without being an especially touristic town.
