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!

                                                                                                    We chose the Butterfly Cottage for a relaxing break after a busy year getting married and moving house. We couldn't have made a better choice. Linda and George's (and Roosevelt's!) hospitality was second to none - they were integral to ensuring our stay was as enjoyable as possible. As we're keen bikers, the weather during the week was perfect - sunny and around 24 degrees and we managed to clock up over 160km during the course of our holiday. The bike rides themselves were fantastic thanks to George who plotted the routes using his local knowledge of the area. We can particularly recommend the ride which took us past a number of beautiful chateaus. The pool and jacuzzi were perfect for unwinding after a long day on the bikes - and the heated pool is a real luxury in mid September! Another highlight of the week was Dmitri, the local chef who came to cook for us one evening. We both agree that it was the best meal we've ever had (and that's including Michelin starred restaurants!) - my soufflé and scallop starter was delicious, and the apple tart dessert simply divine! Dmitri is a must for anyone staying at the Butterfly Cottage - you won't regret it! We can't wait to return in the near future. Sophie & Doug

Great to be close to the village (small and sleepy but with good market, 2 bakeries, butcher/traiteur, restaurant, bars...) 3. House is very comfortable and just about the best equipped we have ever stayed in 4. Hosts are terrific and gave us some excellent recommendations, perfectly tailored to our interests 5. Close to so many stunning places to visit (Sarlat, Roque-Gageac, Domme) that as week just won't be long enough 6. Lots of good walks close by - also well signed cycle routes and quiet, safe roads 7. But also perfect for doing nothing, sitting by the pool in the sunshine with a pastis listening to birdsong or curling up in front of the woodburner with a book 8. For foodlovers, the place is paradise with inspiring markets to buy local, seasonal food; a well equipped kitchen to prepare it and a choice of indoor and outdoor dining space to enjoy leisurely meals 9. For a break from cooking there are lots of good restaurants - not least the Auberge in the village - four courses for under 13 euros (including soup which came in a tureen not just a bowl, similarly the cheese course was presented in whole pieces to cut off as much as liked and wine included) 10. At the end of the day, beds of deep comfort - we slept for hours in peace

Pool is spotlessly clean and a welcome addition with lots of seating around it. Lovely little private courtyard for alfresco dining. The farm is in beautiful surroundings and so many beautiful villages to discover but is quite remote so a car is absolutely essential. On the plus side it is very very peaceful and star gazing is amazing! Would definitely consider staying again 😀.
