Overlooking the wooded meanders of the Dordogne, this solid Perigordian stone house mimics the surrounding land: proud and generous, beautiful and mysterious. No trace remains of the neglect and abandonment this property endured, they are but a distant memory that have made it all the more strong. In total serenity beneath the limpid blue sky, it now opens its doors and invites guests to take some time for themselves, live in harmony with nature, discover local cuisine and bathe in crystal clear waters between visits to chateaus, gardens and other wonders of Périgord Noir. Those yearning for calm and beauty will not be disappointed.
After thirty years of hectic Parisian life, we wanted to devote ourselves to a new project, to return to our roots and welcome family, friends and guests in a beautiful, traditional house steeped in history. We have family ties in Périgord and love this region very much, the choice to move here was natural and easy. Besotted with Beynac nearby, we immediately fell for the charming location of this house - it has an exceptional view of the Dordogne and the castle of Milandes where Josephine Baker lived.
The property consists of a large 18th century mansion with a partly slate roof, typical of the region of Sarlat, a beautiful dovecote, a stunning stone barn, and a small house with a bread oven which has been transformed into a cottage. The walls are exposed stone or lime plaster and the large fireplace in the dining room has been preserved.
We know that this noble farm had a few acres of vineyards and that, in the 19th century, its occupants also worked for the neighbouring vineyard. The last occupant had no one to pass the property down to. It was subsequently bequeathed to her immediate family and remained unoccupied for more than twenty years until we bought it and completely restored it.
We welcome guests into our house as we would welcome our friends, we offer many moments of exchange and sharing to help them make their stay unforgettable: friendly aperitifs on summer evenings, a communal table d'hôtes with all our guests three nights a week, cooking workshops on request to discover local recipes. Our hosting ensures that our guests feel at home.
We highly recommend the Bistrot d'Epicure, located just ten minutes from us, where the chef serves dishes of excellent quality from a small menu with local products. Maison Lembert, in Beynac, offers the best foie gras in the region (it has won awards every year for more than ten years) and excellent sweets. We also have some very good local organic wine producers, including the Domaine de Chanteloiseau, which offers an excellent Viognier.
