Additional Location Information

Resting atop an enchanting Medieval village, right next to a pristine castle, lies La Maisonnette du Coteau. Recently renovated, this exquisite cottage offers numerous luxuries, while maintaining a deep respect for it's Medieval roots. The cottage resides within the old city walls, in the historical portion of the village, under the shadow of the Chateau de Beynac. It boasts amazing views of the valley and offers privacy and tranquility.

When you stay at La Maisonnette, you'll understand why it's one of the most photographed homes in the village, and on several of the printed postcards you'll find around town (be sure to pick up a few as souvenirs!). Its prominent place atop the cliffside village of Beynac-et-Cazenac affords its guests breathtaking views of the Dordogne River, the entire valley, and of the village. Enjoy a dinner or lunch outside on the terrace overlooking the canoes dotting the river, or take a bath in a claw foot tub while you gaze out across the Valley of the Five Chateau. Now that's what we call relaxing!

Whether you arrive from the East or from the West, stunning views of the town invite you as you approach this Medieval cliffside town. You will find your breath taken away as you observe the little golden buildings with their antique tile roofs nestled amongst each other as they overlook the lovely Dordogne River. Like us, you'll be shocked that such a lovely place even exists! It will feel surreal as you spend your days enjoying all that the area has to offer. There will be no question in your mind as to why Beynac is listed as one of the Most Beautiful Villages in France (Les Plus Beaux Villages de France), and why it is our favorite location in France.

La Maisonnette is the ideal landing pad for visiting the other small, picturesque villages in the area, and for enjoying other sights as well. Make sure you visit the Marqueyssac Gardens, the Font de Gaumme prehistoric caves, the famed outdoor market in nearby Sarlat and the 5 chateau within 5 minutes of Beynac. Take a canoe or boat ride down the river for unexpected and amazing views. And don't forget to take a tour of the castle you'll be staying right next to (the windows of La Maisonnette look out upon the old castle walls and the old city walls as well); the Chateau of Beynac is one of the best preserved in France. You'll feel as if you stepped back to the 12th century!

Parking is available in a lot next to the Chateau de Beynac. A pass is available, if you wish, from the Mairie (town hall) down at the bottom of the village. If you'd like, our manager, Elly, would be happy to assist you in obtaining one for your stay. It is a short walk down the cobblestone path to La Maisonnette.
