Holidaymakers searching for holiday rentals in Bezenac also enquired about cottages in Sarlat, holiday homes in St Cyprien and villas in Tremolat

Bézenac: In the hearth of Périgord Noir, a tiny village widely scattered on the south side of a hill overlooking the most beautiful part of the Dordogne valley.

Though very close of the highlights of Périgord, the place is peaceful, Bezenac is one step apart from the summer rush.

Bezenac, and generally speaking all of the Perigord, has memories of the past centuries. Les Eyzies de Tayac (15 km) is known as the capital of prehistory. The shelters of Stone, last book of Jean M. Auel, is set around Les Eyzies. There are also several famous painted caves closeby, with many enchanting stone sheds lost in the surrounding woods.

From Bezenac, you can enjoy many walks, both in the wooded hills that form the background or in the valley alongside the river. Several routes are well marked with yellow posts and you can find the map of these trips in the Mairie or the tourist office. You can easily reach the castle of Panassou following a little road like a balcony on the valley, or if you are braver, you can reach the fairytale castle of Beynac by taking the route which passes by the little church of Cazenac.

The River Dordogne is wide and twisting at the bottom of the village and an island is growing in the middle of the meander. From a shady beach, you can swim to it or just enjoy a relaxing afternoon in the coolness of the river. This part of the river is exceptionally quiet, even during main season.

Canoeing is a must. The view you get from the river onto the castles of Castelnau, Beynac or the village of La Roque Gajac are simply stunning. Two canoes-renters are located on Envaux beach, one km from Bézenac.

Near that beach is a tree-climbing park with passages on top of the trees overhanging the Dordogne. Ladders, ropes, nets; kids and teenagers will love it!

For the golfers, the Le Domaine de Rochebois golf course offers 9 holes at Vitrac 15 km away, and the Le Golf de L’Olivarie offers a full 18 holes at Siorac, just 14 km away.

An extraordinary experience is to discover the Dordogne valley from a hot-air-balloon, either early in the morning or at the end of the afternoon, when all winds have calmed down. You can find your pilot, Patrick Bécheau, at the Camping du Garrit camp site in Saint-Cyprien.

Stalactites caves are also exciting to visit and highly appreciated by kids. (Proumeyssac chasm 17 km)

For those that love good food and wine, "this is paradise on earth" to quote France's much loved King Henry IV. In Périgord, eating well is a way of life, as well as a source of pleasure and friendship. The country market at the medieval village of Saint Cyprien (4km) on Sundays will provide all the quality products to realise the famous cuisine périgourdine.

You find also at Saint Cyprien a supermarket, several shops and all the services (doctor, chemist, banks and post office) you might need during your Bezenac holiday.

On the main road, at the bottom of Bézenac, is a very well known cake shop/bakery called Lucco. The walnuts cakes are excellent for breakfast and you can even bring them back home.

You will also find all around the different types of restaurants, from the cheap but excellent repas à la ferme to the three stars table. For example, underneath Beynac castle (4 km), enjoy a meal on the terrasse overhanging the river at Maleville restaurant.

A life long is not enough to explore all the pleasures you can find in a circle of 40 km around Bézenac, if you come only for one week the problem is to make a choice!

The Butterfly Cottage is simply magical and has everything you could possibly want or need. Before entering the cottage there is a beautiful stone courtyard and in its center a magnificent mulberry tree that welcomes butterflies, swallows and doves. It also welcomed us with comfortable lounges and chairs. Many an afternoon, after sightseeing, we spent a relaxing time with a glass of wine and a good book. The cottage itself is equally astounding. Entering the cottage there is a wonderful sunny kitchen equipped with anything you might possibly need for a two week stay. The table beside the window was our favourite place for breakfast and lunches. The living room and dining room had two sets of large French doors that opened onto the patio. Upstairs is a lovely bedroom with loads of storage space and a very comfortable king-size bed. The Butterfly Cottage was absolutely wonderful, but made even more so by Linda and George who were so helpful in providing anything we might need and advising on the best, and there are many, sights to see - villages, markets, gardens, castles and chateaux. They really made us feel at home. They also organized the fabulous Dimitri to cook for us at the cottage while we watched him prepare and then serve us another unforgettable meal. Everyone should treat themselves tp at least one of Dimitri's incomparable dinners. Thank you Linda and George for another amazing stay! You two are the best! Eric & Diane Victoria, Canada

A short walk down through the properties own 'walnut grove' and you're at the Dordogne river itself with immediate access to canoeing, fishing and more wonderful walks. The house is stylishly decorated and furnished and not too precious - a real home from home - Loved it and will definitely be returning. Great location when flying into Bergerac too, easy to find and a pleasant straight forward journey (under an hour) by car.
