Overview

About the property

4 Bedrooms, 5 Bathrooms and exquisite views of the Dordogne River Valley.

La Grande Vue is a magnificent 4-storey villa situated in the village of Saint Cyprien, on the sloping hillside above the Dordogne River in the Aquitaine region of France. With rustic stone walls and breathtaking views, La Grande Vue ideal for a holiday at anytime of the year.

The house boasts exquisite views, modern finishes and plenty of space for groups of six to ten people. In winter the double-glazed windows, central heating and two fireplaces keep it cosy and warm; and in summer the thick stone walls keep it remarkably cool, with help from the air conditioning on sweltering hot days.

This 245m2 four-storey house has been recently refurnished to ensure all four bedrooms and the living areas are comfortable and modern. Working from the ground up, the first floor consists of a fully equipped kitchen, with a round table that seats eight; a separate scullery; a guest loo; and a grand dining room. The dining room table also seats eight people and there are sofas around the fireplace, giving it a relaxed, homely feel. A wrought-iron table and chairs are available if you want to sit outside at street level to watch the world go by as you enjoy your morning coffee.

The next level has an open plan sitting room with two separate seating areas, a fireplace and wide balcony. A study/ TV room leads off this living area, fully equipped with a flat screen TV, cable services and free Wi-Fi, which is available throughout the house. There is also a guest bathroom on this level.

The two main en-suite bedrooms are on the third level. One has a semi-enclosed terrace with tables, chairs and a bar fridge. The other two bedrooms are on the fourth level and share a bathroom; one has a three-quarter bed and two single beds, and the other has a double bed and a three-quarter bed.

The house is walking distance from the shops, restaurants and medieval church in Saint Cyprien.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We sincerely want to thank the owner for the amazing quickness of handling the dryer. It really has helped with our trip. He 's willingness to take care of

the situation immediately is something we have not experienced before. Many thanks.



We want to tell you we have been renting homes all over Europe and the States for the last five years and this home is the absolute best. This home is beautiful and spotlessly clean. Everything is so top notch! We are so happy here. Laurence is taking wonderful care of the home and she is a delight.



You have been there every time we have needed you. We are just so thrilled and we want you all to know how much your efforts have made our visit so wonderful.

Fabulous home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week in the house with another couple. It was a fabulous experience. The house was more like a home than a rental. The quality of the furnishings, appliances, linens, decorating were all a "10". Everything worked without a hitch.

We were all impressed with the quality of the house, by far, the nicest we have stayed in on our numerous rentals.

The outside terrace was a real treat, with a lovely view of the valley. Perfect for a morning cup of coffee or afternoon glass of wine with friends. Saint-Cyprien is a quiet village, but we found it a welcome respite from the more touristy towns.

Many thanks to Anthony for a truly memorable experience. We couldn't have asked for a nicer place to stay. All the personal touches, fabulous library collection, beautiful chandeliers everywhere all contributed to a wonderful experience.

This is a superb home in the perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in Saint-Cyprien, a location that is not congested with tourists. The home is in a beautiful, charming neighborhood. Each day it was a complete pleasure to wake up in the morning, walk to the bakery and then enjoy our breakfast on the patio. The home is even more stunning than in the photos and incredibly large. Each day we looked forward to returning home after a day of touring. My son and I took advantage of the wonderful kitchen and made our first cheese souffle together!

Two things to keep in mind is that there are three primary floors and the church bells sound throughout the night, so if you have trouble with steps or are a light sleeper this may not be for you. Otherwise, the home and location are perfection, and this is coming from an incredibly picky traveler. Also, Anthony is a responsive and thoughtful host. While you will not have the pleasure of meeting him, somehow he conveys through his webpage and emails how important it is to him that you enjoy your stay in his home.

Extraordinary home - perfect for American travelers!

  • 5 of 5

As an American family of 5 who often travels to France it was an absolute please staying in this beautiful home. Often in france we feel nickle and dimed for every little thing - sheets, towels, and so on and so forth. In this extraordinary home you will find gorgeous rooms with beautifully made beds, top of the line amenities, English speaking owner and housekeeper to welcome you to the area. It's a dream location in a fully updated and modern historical home and village.

We are particularly fond of St Cyprien because it has all the charms and things you may be looking for without the traffic and congestion of local Sarlat and Beynac. You can walk to the Boulangerie each morning, stroll down to the stores and pick up anything you need at the pharmacy. In the summer you'll find daily events like the marchée gourmand and the big Sunday market.

If you're looking for a river beach for younger kids we started taking our kids at age 2 and 3 to the 'plage du coux' where you'll also find a life guard.

And don't miss the local traveling small circuses for families with young children.

Finally you'll feel like you're on the set of 'Beauty and the Beast' while almost never seeing another American. It's one of the most well kept secret areas of France from American tourists.

Enjoy! This property is worth every penny!

Lovely house in Dordogne

  • 5 of 5

We was 6 adults staying in St Cyprien for a week and the house was absolutely perfect for that.

Plenty of space and nothing missing, more or less.

All in all a wonderful house in a charming surrondings.

If you are going to Dordogne this is the place to stay.

Thank you very much.

Lovely family home in excellent location

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful house in an idea location for exploring the Perigord, particulary Les Eyzies, Beynac, Sarlat, La Roque Gageac and many more.

I don't think we have ever stayed in a better equipped house and Lawrence the housekeeper made us very welcome. The house was immaculately restored and maintained and had the feeling of a family home rather than a holiday let. Although it is situated in the old part of the town, don't let the proximity of the church and the noise from the church bells put you off because the internal and external shutters as well as the glass in the windows kept out most of the noise. We welcomed the air conditioning as it was 35deg. when we arrived and stay at that temperature for several days. Ask Lawrence about places to eat before she leaves as those in St. Cyprienne are a bit basic. The second floor balcony is a superb place to enjoy the fine views over the valley.
