Sitting on the terrace was a delight. We had a stunning view of the Dordogne River and could see 3 castles on surrounding hills. The house has mostly stone walls and beamed ceilings. It was clean and stocked with the necessities; and we were quite comfortable. In particular, the bed was comfortable. Beynac is small and charming beyond words, with rather steep cobblestone roads. It is only a short distance from surrounding sights. Having a garage (as this house does) is pretty essential. If you have walking difficulties, Beynac is probably not the place for you.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this property. The outdoor space made our visit extra special. We spent a lot of time by the pool and enjoying meals on the terrace, looking at the beautiful river and hills. The view is serene, although down below is a busy little village with a lot of traffic noise, a small disadvantage, but easily overlooked. The home was quiet for sleeping and it was nice to have the nearby cafes and restaurants to visit.
The bedrooms were spacious, but the ones on the top floor were a little warm at night. The lower bedroom was a bit musty since it has a couple of walls made of earth. The kitchen was good and there was plenty of comfortable seating in the living room.
We enjoyed the pool and the small garden. The location is wonderful for all the local attractions and there is a parking space down the street. The owner, Catherine, was very nice to work with. Beynac's local farmer's market had the best bread, while the giant supermarket in Sarlat didn't have very good bread or produce. Visit the weekly farmer's market in Sarlat!

This is a beautiful property perfectly located in Beynac. We spent a very enjoyable week there - many hours just sat on the terrace watching the river.
The situation of the property exceeded any expectations we had - absolutely stunning and very convenient for the village and visiting nearby attractions. the house is very well equipped and comfortable. What better way to end the day than a dip in the pool followed by dinner on the terrace! this was a family holiday which consisted,of 5 adults and there was plenty of room for us all. Catherine and Jean were very helpful and friendly and we would not hesitate in recommending this property.. We hope to make a return visit!
The view from the terrace cannot be beat, and it has a good aspect for catching the afternoon sun, watching hot air balloons, and enjoying sunsets. Despite it being early April, the weather was great, and our children loved sitting by the pool - even taking the occasional plunge. The apartment is attractive and well appointed, and the owners are very friendly and helpful. It's very well located for many of the attractions of the Dordogne area, and Beynac itself is a beautiful village well worth exploring.
