Nestled in the tiny hillside village of Beynac-et-Cazenac, La Petite Maison invokes a timeless sense of charm and beauty. Catch a glimpse of medieval life in this 500 year-old home and explore the most scenic and breathtaking villages of Southwest France. The village of Beynac consists of a cluster of golden-stone houses beneath a dramatic 500 foot cliff. Perched at the top stands the 12th century Chateau Beynac, rising from the sheer cliff face along the most historic and scenic section of the Dordogne River. La Petite Maison makes for an ideal home base for visiting all the picturesque villages in the Dordgone region, including Les Eyzies, Domme, La Roque-Gageac, Castelnaud, Monpazier, and Sarlat, the most historically preserved medieval city in all of France.
La Petite Maison vacation rental is one of the most picturesque homes in Beynac. Situated on a footpath leading to the Chateau, your medieval adventure awaits. Step inside into a quiet retreat and enjoy the charm of its thick stone walls and heavy chestnut timbers. Many of its furnishings date back to the 1700’s including the dining table and buffet, both made of walnut in the local Perigordian style.
We are Vincent and Michelle Shrader, avid Francophiles and travelers in Europe. We’ve been coming to Beynac for more than 20 years and from the first visit felt a sense of connection to this charming little French village. Some years we visited several times. Eventually, we found a place of our own. This is more than a vacation rental to us, it’s a second home
