LOCAL ACTIVITIES: Lazily drifting down the Dordogne river in your own canoe, passing Chateaux, Bastides & medieval villages as you go is not to be missed. Take your own picnic & stop off at one of the many beaches along the river, or pull in for a gourmet meal at a restaurant. For those of you feeling a bit more energetic, join a bike tour & see the leafy lanes & valleys. Hot air ballooning & micro-lighting flights can be organised locally for the more adventurous amongst you. There is a 'Tree Adventure Park' near by, which is a great place to go with a group of kids & adults alike. There are also the many local caves including Lascaux & Font de Gaume at les Eyzies with their Prehistoric paintings for you to visit. Sarlat itself offers many free attractions, especially during the summer, including fireework displays, street theatre, acrobats, musicians, art exhibitions & concerts. Not to be missed are the towns & villages of Domme, Rocamadour, Sarlat & Montignac with the famous Lascaux cave paintings.
BEYNAC HISTORY: L'ancienne Poste is set on the banks of the gently flowing Dordogne river overlooking 4 chateaux & one of the historic sites of the Hundred Years War (1337-1453) between England & France. The stunningly romantic village of Beynac, which rises dramatically from the valley floor & which was once the home of Richard the Lionheart, will enchant & captivate you at every turn, from its narrow medieval streets lined with soft honey coloured stone houses, shops, art galleries & restaurants to its magnificent Chateau, perched high on top the cliff, which has majestically watched over the Dordogne valley since 1150. You may already be familiar with Beynac and the surrounding area from watching such films as 'Chocolat', 'Joan of Arc', 'The Musketeer' and 'Timeline'.
I also have the details on a couple of other similar homes in the area, so if this does not suit I can forward on the details of the other houses, both have large 10x5m pools and can accommodate between 4-10 guests. Both are very reasonably priced for the facilities offered and within 5 minutes of Sarlat, Domme, Beynac, Roque Gageac and the Dordogne river.
Please note that as we have 3 houses with the same or similar facilities all within the same Sarlat and Beynac area, our availability calendar shows when all of our houses are reserved, so if a date is shown as available we do have 1, 2 or all 3 of our houses available for that date.
