It is so ideally located in the gorgeous Gourdon and just what we needed. Within walking distance to a lovely selection of restaurants or BBQ's in the garden, what ever we wanted. We also took advantage of the train station, which was only a ten minute walk from the cottage and travelled to Cahors. A must see on market day. We enjoyed a stunning breakfast in the square, pastries from the boulangerie whilst enjoying our coffee's and watching the market come to life. The market itself is full of everything you could ever need and so exciting for us to experience.

The pictures actually don't do the apartment justice, it's beautifully decorated and has everything you need for your stay. The views are incredible, you won't get bored of them, even when it's raining. Beynac itself is a stunning chocolate box village with little shops and restaurants, it's simple but has everything you need. We're already planning to return! Thank you again, Francine and Michel.
