Gites for sale in SW France



Dordogne Valley - Beynac


4 bedroomed gite/second home


5000m² land, views, wood


€312,000 * (ref: 136)



Surveying the Dordogne Valley from its forest perch on the hillside, with glimpses of the ancient chateau of Beynac from the upper windows, this stone-built property is a surprisingly roomy 4-bedroomed house.


Barely 10 years old it fools many a visitor who believe it to be a renovated barn. But no: this is the work of a local craftsman and builder who has sourced the ancient stone, the 'tuiles plates' for the roof and local wood for the beams. The result is a charming property set in grounds with lawns and woodland.


The layout is simple and spacious: downstairs there is a vast open-space living-dining area with a fully-equipped kitchen. There's also a downstairs double bedroom with ensuite shower room.


Upstairs, we find three more bedrooms and a bathroom.


Gas-fired heating (buried tank in garden).


There is no pool but plenty of space to put one. The owner being a builder can advise...


Our opinion:

As with most properties in the Dordogne, one could see this as a pure investment opportunity. There is no problem letting this sort of house for the period May - end September at around €700 a week. Adding a pool would double this figure. And as it is practically new, there is little or no maintenance required.

The charm of the region lies in the unspoilt nature of the countryside, the picture-perfect villages and a rich heritage of churches, abbeys and chateaux. Above all, Dordogne is home to two (at least) of the most remarkable prehistoric sites in Europe: Lascaux and Font de Gaume.


The region south of the Dordogne river is carpeted with vast forests of oak punctuated with fields and stone walls. Dwellings tend to be grouped in fortified villages and bastide towns with high walls and narrow mediaeval streets.


North of the Dordogne river the landscape becomes wilder with rivers cutting deep gorges through the honey-coloured liestone. In the region - the Golden triangles - between Dordogne and Vézère river valleys - one finds the principal pre-history sites of the Perigord


Sarlat is the uncrowned capital of the Dordogne: all roads lead to this uniformly lovely town with its honey-coloured stone houses and public buildings, its museums, galleries and biutiques, its cafés, restaurants and - especially - its weekly market.


Winters can be cold but summers are inevitably hot and rain-free.
