I don't have enough superlative words to describe how much we loved this place. It was everything we imagined and more. It is so much better than the photos. Do not hesitate - book it immediately!! We were staying in this lovely house in a week of 35-41 degrees Celsius so the pool was a godsend. We went out exploring each morning and returned for a late afternoon of swimming. Despite the heat, downstairs was cool and tranquil. Upstairs was warm but there were fans and we all slept incredibly well. The view from the bedroom is so amazing, we could not get enough of it.The village of Beynac is simply beautiful as is the region; and there is so much to do. Canoeing is a must do activity particularly with children. We also visited Gouffre de Padirac, underground caves where you glide along in a boat underground - amazing experience. We couldn't get over how wonderful the food was in this region either - La Petit Tonnelle (the veal special was excellent), La Belle Etoile in La Roque Gageac, O Plaisir de Sens ( just out of La Roque Gageac) were all excellent and reasonably priced. Not that we ate much at home but when we did the kitchen is very well stocked with crockery and also all the basics you might need. Catherine and Manuel were charming and helpful. We are already trying to work out how soon we can return to this beautiful place. We will remember our time there forever. I should note that the village is steep and lugging our suitcases from the car, down the uneven cobbled path and then up the outside and inside staircases was not for the fainthearted but it was so worth it!!!

Lovely house, nicely furnished, beautiful views.Towels were old & thin.Long uneven walk from garagee

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely week here with warm and mostly dry weather. Not hot enough for pool use unfortunately, but it was nice to sit by the pool and read in the afternoon in the sun. Every evening hot air balloons glide past along the river. We were able to sit out every morning for breakfast and also in the evening until late. We were never troubled by flies, mosquitos, or spiders! Beynac has several really nice restaurants which serve delicious food at very reasonable prices. The menus change on a regular basis. The boulangerie sells excellent croissant etc and the little supermarket has a good selection of provisions & plenty of fresh fruit. Visit the Gardens of Marqueyssac with the amazing topiary and much more, plus a very nice restaurant. You can actually see it as you sit out on the balcony. Sarlat is close by and worth a visit, and of course a climb to the top of the hill to visit the Castle.It may be an idea to take some walking shoes/ trainers to tackle the hills! You will be near places to hire a canoe, and can choose the amount of time you want to be out on the river! Or you can take a trip on the boat from just up the road. We did the canoeing for an hour. Going past Beynac on the river gives a perfect view of the whole town from the castle down. We visited Roc Gageac just down the road, but it is not as nice as Beynac and the restaurants are not so good either.

You can spend a week in Beynac and have plenty to occupy you without venturing very far afield. It is a lovely area.

Amazing location for river views.

  • 5 of 5

This place was in a great location for visiting lots of interesting sites. Lots of chateaux medieval towns, the stunning gardens of Marquesac and canoe/boat trips on the Dordogne. Beynac castle was fabulous.

Genuine point if you are thinking of staying in this house- it is blessed with a parking spot which is fairly close but there are old steps to get to the house. This is a wonderful place. However it would not be suitable for someone with difficulties walking.

Owner's Response: We bought a garage where you can park two vehicles, which is rare in a medieval village like Beynac. We have made this effort so that our tenants can always park and that this is not a problem for them.

Position, Pool, Patio

  • 5 of 5

This property is ideally situated in Beynac with fabulous views from the patio over the Dordogne river, the picture doesn't lie, in fact the pictures don't really do justice to it. The pool is very good and again you can swim with views over the river. The area next to the pool is sheltered and a sun trap even when a little breezy on the patio/balcony. The pool is spotlessly clean but not heated though in late June we found the temperature fine and spent quite a lot of time in it. The house itself has a large lounge/dining/kitchen area with plenty of room. Kitchen has all you need. The bathroom is roomy but the shower is weak though plenty of hot water. Although downstairs the house remains pleasantly cool in hot weather the two bedrooms upstairs, especially the front double, can get hot and we needed the fan. There is a lower floor double with a four poster bed that can only be accessed from outside. Sleep with the windows open and the mosquitoes get you. We sprayed the room an hour before we went to bed and were fine. Judging by the fly sprays previous occupants had left we were not the only ones with the problem. The quality of finishes in the house are adequate not luxury. The house is a short walk to the main village with a number of restaurants though all paths are steep and cobbled. The walk from the garage where you park to the house is rough and steep and not really for those with walking difficulties, you will need to carry your cases. The drive up the hill and into the garage is also quite exciting. We found the beds quite hard and towels a bit basic but overall a great stay. As with all places there are compromises but the pluses definitely outweigh the negatives and would we stay again, you betya

A beautiful and convenient postion in Beynac

  • 4 of 5

We had a very good week as the weather was beautiful most of the time and the position is amazing. If it was raining the house would perhaps not be so perfect. Beynac is a good position to see all the other local castles and most nights we had 5 or 6 colourful hot air balloons flying over. The wildlife on the river is also a bonus.

Perfect Dordogne location

  • 5 of 5

Charming property in a great location overlooking the Dordogne river. We could see 3 chateaus from our deck, and Beynac castle was a short walk up the steep cobblestone streets behind our villa. The house was very comfortable, clean, and well-equipped.....nice decor and good kitchen.....all as advertised. Loved Beynac and the surrounding much to do and see and beautiful countryside all around. Many of the most interesting villages and sites are a short drive away.....Domme, LaRoque Gageac, Chateau des Milandes, Les Jardins du Marqueyssac, Lascaux II, lots of bastide towns and street markets, etc. We had a wonderful stay and highly recommend this property.
