Why Laura or Tom Garbett chose Beaulieu-sur-Dordogne

The renovation of the house has been a rewarding experience. It had been left to ruin and many villagers thought it would have to be torn down. We have kept as many of the original interior features as possible. It was a 5 year project and a rewarding one to bring this building back to life.

In this apartment the massive cantou fireplace with its stone sides and huge wooden mantle now houses the kitchen units. The original stone sink now features below a new cabinet with original stonework on one side. The high ceilings of the kitchen and living room have the original exposed ceiling beams which are quite large in diameter. The lobby and stairwell back wall is of pointed stones. The colombage facade is original except where the bedroom is as this part of the house had fallen away.

We hope you enjoy the experience of living in a medieval village in a 15th century house with all the modern comforts and conveniences.

What makes this apartment unique

The colombage facade stands out boldy above the cobblestone lane. The wood carved window surrounds on the first floor date to the 15th century and are a rare example as most preserved ones are of stone. Each level of the house was built in a different era as we saw in the construction methods during the renovation. It is a little piece of history in a picturesque village. Being located in the old centre it is off the main road and an easy walk to everything you need especially the boulangerie just meters away! Our neighbours are all local residents, friendly and what makes a village come to life.

The house is home to 3 one bedroom holiday apartments, La Dordogne, La Correze and La Charente. Located in the old medieval church square of the village off the main road. A boulangerie is only steps away, just follow your nose! Pretty location facing the 12th century church and the other houses in the square. In walking distance to cafes, shops, the local market and to the Dordogne River. The apartments have been renovated to new in 2014 so they are clean, bright and each has their own charm.

Apartment in Beaulieu

  • 4 of 5

A lovely apartment in a spectacular part of Beaulieu. Very well renovated.

We visited many of " les beaux villages" so the hire car was useful.

Perfect place

  • 5 of 5

La Dordogne is one of three apartments in Laura and Tom's renovated house. Each reflects excellent taste and concern for comfort. There is nothing lacking in the ground floor apartment that we occupied for a week. Everything was functional and clean. The bed was excellent as were the fixtures in the bathroom and kitchen appliances. The living room had places to sit in comfort and Laura even though to include a throw for a cool evening, although the heaters were adequate to keep us warm. The village has everything that one might need including a supermarket close by and an excellent Tourist Bureau. Laura was helpful, accommodating and well organized with a book of instructions as well as maps and other tourist material. One of the best places we've ever stayed, and we have been renting in France for over a decade.

L'appartement tout rénové dans un immeuble ancien était impeccable. Spacieux, joliment décoré, très bien situé, très tranquille, bien équipé (cuisine, TV, wi-fi, produit de base...) un endroit de rêve pour visiter toute la région. La proprio très sympathique et avenante. Un séjour parfait en tout point.

Merci à Laura pour son accueil chaleureux et toutes ses attentions.

Appartement top classe, cosy, très bien agencé. On s'y sent bien. Nous n'hésiterons pas à revenir.

Beaulieu est un superbe village avec un programme d'animation très varié. Région très belle avec une multitude de villages qui valent le détour, sans oublier les restaurants.
