About the property

4 Bedrooms, 5 Bathrooms and exquisite views of the Dordogne River Valley.

La Grande Vue is a magnificent 4-storey villa situated in the village of Saint Cyprien, on the sloping hillside above the Dordogne River in the Aquitaine region of France. With rustic stone walls and breathtaking views, La Grande Vue ideal for a holiday at anytime of the year.

The house boasts exquisite views, modern finishes and plenty of space for groups of six to ten people. In winter the double-glazed windows, central heating and two fireplaces keep it cosy and warm; and in summer the thick stone walls keep it remarkably cool, with help from the air conditioning on sweltering hot days.

This 245m2 four-storey house has been recently refurnished to ensure all four bedrooms and the living areas are comfortable and modern. Working from the ground up, the first floor consists of a fully equipped kitchen, with a round table that seats eight; a separate scullery; a guest loo; and a grand dining room. The dining room table also seats eight people and there are sofas around the fireplace, giving it a relaxed, homely feel. A wrought-iron table and chairs are available if you want to sit outside at street level to watch the world go by as you enjoy your morning coffee.

The next level has an open plan sitting room with two separate seating areas, a fireplace and wide balcony. A study/ TV room leads off this living area, fully equipped with a flat screen TV, cable services and free Wi-Fi, which is available throughout the house. There is also a guest bathroom on this level.

The two main en-suite bedrooms are on the third level. One has a semi-enclosed terrace with tables, chairs and a bar fridge. The other two bedrooms are on the fourth level and share a bathroom; one has a three-quarter bed and two single beds, and the other has a double bed and a three-quarter bed.

The house is walking distance from the shops, restaurants and medieval church in Saint Cyprien.

Many Thanks to Anthony for a wonderful week at his beautiful house, a true Dordogne Gem. Dordogne's Perigord Noir numerous attractions tops the chart and the house is located perfectly for these excursions.

After shopping at the Farmer's Market (Sunday in St Cyprien, Wednesday & Saturday in Sarlat), we thoroughly enjoyed cooking French Cuisine in the well equipped Kitchen.

We found a local Restaurant/ Bar called Le Chai and became regulars. The house had more rooms than we needed for 2 couples but we loved that there were 2 Master Bedrooms with ensuite Bathrooms (where else can you find that in France). We really enjoyed Laurence's warm welcome. She was very responsive and a super house manager.

Breath taking valleys, charming historical towns, fresh fine food and friendly locals - what more can we ask. We highly recommend this house and hope to visit again.

Merci Beaucoup pour une experience merveilleuse!

Wonderful home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

As a group of three couples, La Grande Vue provided us with a wonderful home base, to explore not only the lovely village of St Cyprien but also the beautiful Dordogne region.

The house was immaculately presented, generously proportioned, and offered every home comfort and more. We had a truely memorable week!

We also really enjoyed the very warm welcome extended by the villagers in St Cyprien!

Thank you Laurence for your help and support during our stay.

We would love to return

Fabulous home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week in the house with another couple. It was a fabulous experience. The house was more like a home than a rental. The quality of the furnishings, appliances, linens, decorating were all a "10". Everything worked without a hitch.

We were all impressed with the quality of the house, by far, the nicest we have stayed in on our numerous rentals.

The outside terrace was a real treat, with a lovely view of the valley. Perfect for a morning cup of coffee or afternoon glass of wine with friends. Saint-Cyprien is a quiet village, but we found it a welcome respite from the more touristy towns.

Many thanks to Anthony for a truly memorable experience. We couldn't have asked for a nicer place to stay. All the personal touches, fabulous library collection, beautiful chandeliers everywhere all contributed to a wonderful experience.

This is a superb home in the perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in Saint-Cyprien, a location that is not congested with tourists. The home is in a beautiful, charming neighborhood. Each day it was a complete pleasure to wake up in the morning, walk to the bakery and then enjoy our breakfast on the patio. The home is even more stunning than in the photos and incredibly large. Each day we looked forward to returning home after a day of touring. My son and I took advantage of the wonderful kitchen and made our first cheese souffle together!

Two things to keep in mind is that there are three primary floors and the church bells sound throughout the night, so if you have trouble with steps or are a light sleeper this may not be for you. Otherwise, the home and location are perfection, and this is coming from an incredibly picky traveler. Also, Anthony is a responsive and thoughtful host. While you will not have the pleasure of meeting him, somehow he conveys through his webpage and emails how important it is to him that you enjoy your stay in his home.

Extraordinary home - perfect for American travelers!

  • 5 of 5

As an American family of 5 who often travels to France it was an absolute please staying in this beautiful home. Often in france we feel nickle and dimed for every little thing - sheets, towels, and so on and so forth. In this extraordinary home you will find gorgeous rooms with beautifully made beds, top of the line amenities, English speaking owner and housekeeper to welcome you to the area. It's a dream location in a fully updated and modern historical home and village.

We are particularly fond of St Cyprien because it has all the charms and things you may be looking for without the traffic and congestion of local Sarlat and Beynac. You can walk to the Boulangerie each morning, stroll down to the stores and pick up anything you need at the pharmacy. In the summer you'll find daily events like the marchée gourmand and the big Sunday market.

If you're looking for a river beach for younger kids we started taking our kids at age 2 and 3 to the 'plage du coux' where you'll also find a life guard.

And don't miss the local traveling small circuses for families with young children.

Finally you'll feel like you're on the set of 'Beauty and the Beast' while almost never seeing another American. It's one of the most well kept secret areas of France from American tourists.

Enjoy! This property is worth every penny!
