House, 100 sqm with 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom (without wc), 1 separate wc, large living room, panoramic garden of 300 sqm. Sleeps : 5 + 1 (child under 12)
The “Stoneroofed House” is located in the heart of the medieval village of Beynac, officially listed as one of the “Most Beautiful Villages of France”. The chateau is perched on the top of an imposing 150 m limestone cliff dominating the river Dordogne and appears to come straight out of the 12th century as it was built by the barons of Beynac…
The house has direct access from the garden gate into the cobblestone path leading to the castle.It has been recently renovated and is resulting of a subtile combination of tradition and modernity.
Tradition with 500 years of history for the house built in 16th century and still topped with original steeply pitched roof of stacked stone called 'lauzes.' The lauzes are of local schist, a type of stone that breaks naturally into large, irregularly shaped plates, giving its name to the house.
Tradition inside the house as you will find limestone walls in each rooms, ancient wooden beams, two large original stone fireplaces but also ancient furniture like an outstanding 18th century renovated “baldaquin” kingsize four poster bed in the master bedroom, the 2nd bedroom upstairs with 3 single beds has 2 unique triangle wooden windows (called “Outeaux”) preserving the original openings in the stoneroof.
Modernity with an open plan fully equipped kitchen, brand new bathroom with spa shower cabin, flat screen TV with DVD equipment, Ipod dock station, leather dining chairs, comfortable living room seatings…


The living room opens directly to a terrace of 30 sqm followed by a garden of 300 sqm with scenic views over the Dordogne and valley of the 5 chateaux & the village down the hill and the church of the castle up the hill. Outdoor dining table with comfortable chairs & relaxing sun loungers shadowed by a massive platane tree.


The house is ideal for couples or for a family up to 5 people (+ eventually one additional babyguest in the master room with 1 cot available). You will find at walking distance (2-5 mn) from the house down the hill restaurants, grocery shop, bakery, butcher, post office, pharmacy, newspaper & magazine...

Region :
The department of Dordogne (many French prefers to refer to its old name : Périgord) is a part of the Aquitaine region. It is the 1st producer of strawberry & walnuts in France.
The Perigord Noir as part of the Perigord gets its name from the abundant oak forests. It is well known for its gastronomy and more particularly for its product related to duck (magret, confit…) or goose such as “foie gras”. It is also one of the most famous mushrooms area in France with truffles which grows underground at the base of the oaktree and are called Black Diamonds) and cepes which are just wonderful sliced in omelettes.
The region is offering a large variety of prehistoric sites with troglodytic housing in the cliffs like Les Eyzies (30 mn from Beynac) in the Vezere Valley but also the worldwide famous paeolithic cave paintings of Lascaux (40 mn from Beynac) dating back to more than 17.000 years. Some other jewels like Padirac cave complex and less famous like Maxange caves with eccentric concretions in Le Buisson (30 mn from Beynac) are just fantastic.
But the Perigord accounts for lots of medieval castles and bastides as fortified medieval towns like Domme, Belves, Montpazier (from 10 to 35 mn from Beynac).
Perigord is a paradise for the walkers : it offers a beautiful environment in which to walk surrounded by walnut orchard, dramatic cliffs, discovering chateaux , prehistoric sites…

Beynac
Beynac has a long history : it has been inhabited in the Bronze age 2000 years bc… but the 1st castle has been built in the 9th century in order to control this stretch of the Dordogne from Vikings. The chateau has remained in the hands of the Beynac family during more than 500 years from 13th till 18th century and during the 100 years war, Beynac was one of the French strongholds whereas on the other side of the river Castelnaud was in english hands
Beynac lies in the heart of the Perigord Noir valley of the 5 chateaux (Castelnaud, Marquessac, Fayrac, Beynac and les Milandes) and is in the middle of the golden triangle : Sarlat (10 km), Domme (10 km), Les Eyzies (30 km).
Beynac is a perfect starting point to pay visit to all cultural sites of the Dordogne.
Sports activity like swimming, fishing, canoeing, biking, hiking are easy to organise from Beynac.
