THIS REALLY IS YOUR PERFECT DORDOGNE HOLIDAY HOME AS THERE IS SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE RIGHT HERE ON YOUR DOORSTEP WHATEVER THEIR AGE.
LUXURY VILLA DESCRIPTION: L'ancienne Poste is a very light, airy & spacious honey coloured stone house with 2 Master ensuite bedrooms & a Twin ensuite bedroom with a 13th Century stone arch. The living, dining & kitchen area & all the bedrooms have panoramic views over this historical part of the Dordogne river to the 4 Chateaux of Castlenaud, Fayrac, Marqueyssac & Lacoste.
The main entrance to the house uses the original Post Office shop doorway and leads directly into the kitchen. There is a lovely sunny south facing terrace next to the kitchen with magnificent Dordogne river & Chateaux views. There is a table & chairs for sunny al fresco breakfasts & shaded evening meals with a glass of wine, the whole while enjoying the stunning views complete with beautiful sunsets.
The Garden Bedroom, has an ensuite bathroom, two single beds & medieval stone archway with French Doors opening onto the south facing garden. The Balcony Bedroom has a kingsize bed & double French doors giving panoramic views of the valley below; it has an ensuite shower room & ceiling fan. The Vaulted bedroom has a king & a single bed, with a beautiful vaulted beamed ceiling & ceiling fans, an ensuite shower room & panoramic views. There is a private pool with sun decking & a shaded flower covered seating area. There are ample sun loungers & chairs. There is parking next to the house.
The whole house is over 4 levels, on the lowest level you will find the garden bedroom which has twin beds & French doors opening to the garden & pool area, this room also has an ensuite bathroom with a shower over the bath. Also on the garden level, although accessed from outside only, is a store room housing the freezer & washing machine, this is accessed from the garden. One level up from the garden is the kitchen, dining & living room with the main entrance door & outside sunny dining terrace with stunning river & chateaux views. The floor above the living area is the 1st Master King bedroom which has a full width south facing balcony which also overlooks the river & chateaux. The hallway on this level also has access to another balcony which faces west & overlooks the river & pool, there is also access out onto the Rue de l'Ancienne Poste & our double width garage. The floor above has the large vaulted 2nd Master bedroom with a lovely comfortable King bed & also an antique French 4ft width sleigh bed, both Master bedrooms have ensuite shower rooms with glass shower doors, sinks & toilets. All the bedrooms have river & chateaux views & ensuites.
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.
Bedrooms 1 & 2 are both very large with high ceilings and cooling ceiling fans. Bedroom 3, the twin bedroom, has 3ft thick stone walls & maintains an ambiant temperature whatever the weather....moreless
Large double garage next to the house accessible by vehicles of 2 metre or less width only. Free village car parking permit available for larger vehicles, nearest car park 2 minutes walk from house....moreless
The middle bedroom has a new wooden balcony with spectacular views of the river and Chateaux. A second west facing stone balcony accessed from the hallway overlooks the pool & the Dordogne river....moreless

About the owner: We moved to France with our children 15 years ago and have lived & worked in the hospitality industry in the Sarlat area since then. We ran our own small hotel & restaurant in Beynac for 6 years and are proud to tell you that we were listed in many International guide books, including Rick Steves, Alistair Sawdays and the Guide du Routard. We sold this business in the summer of 2006, and after listening to the needs of our restaurant and hotel guests we started our holiday rental home business. We now have 3 wonderful vacation rental houses in prime locations in central Sarlat & Beynac which are available to rent all year round. As we live locally, we are your first point of contact if you need help with anything, you will be able to draw on our vast local knowledge, which has been acquired over many years, to make the most of your stay in this wonderful area. You will find that each of our houses can offer you the very best in location, amenities & comfort, whether you are over looking the Dordogne river & 4 Chateaux or strolling through the Medieval streets of Sarlat. Be assured that we are responsive to our guests needs; many of whom come back year after year & have become firm friends, they are more than happy to recommend us to their family & friends. We will offer you the best service that we possibly can to ensure that your holiday is a memorable one for all the right reasons!!
Why the Owner Chose Sarlat-la-Caneda:
Because it is magnificent ! Location, Location, Location. Need I say more...............why rent somewhere & have to drive everywhere when you can walk!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We have three beautiful holiday homes, one in central Sarlat, one in central Beynac (wonderful house which over looks 4 Chateaux and the Dordogne river!) and a brand new to the holiday rental market after a 150,000 Euros refurb is our 16th century Maison Bourgeois with heated salt water pool, which is located just 2 miles from the centre of Sarlat in a tranquil bucolic setting. Both our Sarlat and Beynac homes have been our own family home since we moved to France 14 years ago and we now offer them for others to enjoy. All three houses are private and you will have sole use of the house, garden and pool, they all have their own off road private parking and ensuite bedrooms. As we now live only 5 minutes drive from both Sarlat and Beynac we are on hand for any queries that you may have during your stay so you can be assured of the best of care & assistance if needed. The Sarlat & Beynac houses are within a 2-5 minute easy level stroll of restaurants, cafes and wonderful boulangeries selling the best croissants and baguettes. There are Farmers Food Markets each day of the week in the surrounding towns and villages and a twice weekly street market in Sarlat which also has a daily covered market by the main Square. Here you will find the local farmers selling their freshly harvested produce, including organic bread, fruits, vegetables, cheeses and creams. During the summer months there is a daily variety of street entertainment in Sarlat which is free to watch and sometimes participate in ! Our new holiday home is within walking distance of a bar & restaurant with twice weekly live music during July and August and is only a 2 minute car journey into bustling Sarlat.
