St. Cyprien apartment description
Situated in the heart of the Perigord Noir, with easy access to all the major attractions of this delightful historic area, Le Rocher Rouge is a traditional Perigordine property set in about an acre of grounds, with woods behind and to the sides, and with a stream crossing the property. A 10m x 5m swimming pool with Roman stepped entry is provided for visitors use. Available separately or in combination, the Gites provide ideal holiday accommodation, from couples up to family groups.
Location: St Cyprien is an unassuming typically French market town, (i.e. slightly shabby!), which is little touched by tourism, and still serves as the main centre for quite a large area, retaining most essential services, is in South west France, in the valley of the River Dordogne just north of the river, and is roughly equidistant (i.e. about an hour or 30/40 miles) from Bergerac (to the west) Souillac (to the east on the auto route) Perigueux (to the North) and Cahors (to the South.) The property is two miles from St. Cyprien and one mile from Meyrals (the nearest boulangerie!), and about two and a half miles from the River Dordogne. The area around St. Cyprien is considered to be the heart of the Perigord Noir, so called because of the abundance of oak trees in the area which give the woods a dark appearance, especially in winter, and bounded by the medieval town of Sarlat la Caneda, the bastide village of Domme, and the Cro Magnon sites (prehistoric man) at Les Eyzies. (All 20 minutes).
Less than ten minutes away are the picturesque Chateaux of Beynac, Castelnaud and Millande (of Josephine Baker fame), and the spectacular village of Le Roque de Gageac, built into the cliffs alongside the Dordogne. The nearest large towns are Bergerac, Perigueux and Cahors at about an hour, with Bordeaux, Toulouse and Clermont-Ferand about two hours. (153-908).
Those of you who have read Michael Crichtons' book 'Timeline' will have realised that Le Rocher Rouge is located right in the area where the action of the book takes place, and Bezenac where the fictional 'Chateau de la Roque' is situated is only some three/four miles along the valley from us. (Michael Crichton is also the author of 'Jurassic Park'.) The area, centred on Les Eyzies, is the 'Ninth Cave of the Zelandoniis' featured in Jean Auels best selling series 'Earth's Children.
