From the moment we arrived and were greeted by David in front of their 12th century manor house everything about our visit was perfect. The property was lovely and sited in a beautiful rural landscape. Our hosts were friendly and helpful, giving advice about places to eat and visit. The region is gorgeous...this is coming from people who live in one of the most beautiful villages in Maine.It was so comfortable, like visiting family, only better. Our cottage was well equipped and comfortable. David and Katie shared some products of the region with us as well as items from their garden. The geese, chickens and duck are particularly entertaining, especially while being fed our food scraps. Their children were delightful and not intrusive. The proximity to the village of Villefranche was particularly advantageous for us to be able to walk to town any time we wanted. All of the local merchants were friendly and welcoming. All in all, perfection!
What a tranquil and beautiful spot - we were all delighted with this house. The view from the terrace was just stunning. Looking out of the upstairs bedroom in the morning, you can actually see fish jumping in the river below - we enjoyed dinner on the terrace several nights - the local restaurants just couldn't compare for atmosphere. Despite being tucked right in the village, the small garden feels very private.
I rented bikes for the week, but the roads in and out of Beynac are a little scary for biking. It might have been better to just arrange to pick up the bikes in next village when we wanted them. Great biking paths/small roads starting in Castlenaud...
The house and village are more than 400 years old, so not without quirks, the stairs are a little narrow, the downstairs bedroom is not connected to the rest of the house, so you have to walk outside for your morning coffee - the parking is up a cobbled lane... The charms of the house more than make up for any compromise - we would book here again if we returned to the area. I don't believe we could have chosen a better house.
Very clean, convenient, idyllic... Thank you, Catherine, for sharing this beautiful house!
