About the property

10 bedrooms, 8 bathrooms and grandiose reception rooms

A stroll through the steep winding streets of Beynac leads to the most stunning house in the village: la Maison des Sarrasins. Clinging to the cliff side, it overlooks the Dordogne valley and the meandering river below. Its 18th century terraced gardens overlooking the Dordogne castles are amongst the most beautiful sites in the Perigord. In recent years, the property has undergone a meticulous restoration led by the owner of the Castelnaud and Marqueyssac gardens nearby.

The main house comprises seven bedrooms, six bathrooms and exquisite reception rooms. The guest house provides an additional two bedrooms, a bathroom and a games room. Both houses are centred around a charming pisé stone terrace, offering an idyllic setting. Two additional beds are also available in the Dovecote, near the pool area, ideal for a nanny who might accompany you.

It is a unique opportunity to rent an exceptional mansion for a family or a friend get-together, or simply for a luxurious stay in one of France's most beautiful region.

The two adjoining gardens overlook the Dordogne river and offer a unique panoramic view of the valley of the five castles. Toward the far end, a 27 metre long heated swimming pool has been fitted into an 18th century basin.

We do accept animals for an extra of 100€/animal.

Guestbook comments from the manager

"Nous sommes venus à Beynac cet été pour une semaine aux "Sarrazins" du 2 au 9 août 2013.

Nous avions eu connaissance de votre maison par Internet.

Les photos mise sur le site, nous avaient déjà beaucoup séduits.

Mais dés notre arrivée, nous avons été émerveillés autant par la maison que par son parc.

Nous avons profité de votre maison à 10 adultes et 9 enfants et nous étions très au large!

La piscine est particulièrement magnifique et très protégée pour les enfants.

Les chambres avec leur salle de bain étaient de toute beauté, les pièces à vivre exceptionnelle.

Nous y reviendrons sûrement.

Si nous devions donner une note se serait 9.5 pour ne pas donner 10.

Un seul défaut, les photos du site ne représente pas assez la beauté de ce lieu.

Bravo"

Remarkable!!

  • 5 of 5

Unbelievable property! The pictures are not an exaggeration. This place is spacious, impeccably furnished and equipped, in an unbelievable location and more than you could ask for inside and outside. The owner and staff were also attentive to every detail.

Amazing house in an amazing location

  • 5 of 5

This house was beyond expectations! The photos do not do it justice. 13 friends stayed here for a week. Ample space for all of us in 7 lovely bedrooms. We had a chef come into cook for us on our last night. Wonderful experience in a lovely house and village. Would highly recommend it.

What an amazing experience!

  • 5 of 5

Words cannot describe the beauty of this place. A group of 20 friends spent a week at this fantastic recently renovated property during the winter holidays.

The views are astonishing, the beds comfortable, the kitchen very well equipped, the managers always keen to help, the pool incredible and the BBQ in the garden a delight!

Also so many things to do and visit in the area - we weren't bored for a minute.

This place is a true gem and a great value if one can get enough people on board.

I would definitely recommend.

Outstanding property, outstanding location

  • 5 of 5

Our group of friends has been meeting every year for New Year's week for a few years in a row, and this year's location in Beynac was truly one of our greatest experiences. The quality of the renovation of the house is truly outstanding, the gardens and views from almost every room in the house are exceptional. Our only reserve would be about communication for our arrival: after a whole day on the road, we had to wait for about 20 minutes in the cold with our 2 months-old baby although we were on time for the appointment we had made, and no one was answering their phone. Also, we were charged an unexpected supplement for a "re-arrangement of the beds" which we had not asked for. However these details were by far compensated for by a great stay in an extremely comfortable house. The caretakers were very friendly too. We would return without hesitation.

Incredible setting for an amazing week!

  • 5 of 5

We had a brilliant week at Sarassins with both our families and a few friends to celebrate our wedding. Married in the garden, and enjoyed a feast on the lawn while the sun set. The weather was a perfect 27degrees all week. So we lounged by the pool, or explored the areas castles and walks. The house was fantastic. Very spacious and easy to enjoy. The owners were very helpful and easy to deal with. We are already planning our return in a few years time! Just beautiful. Can't recommend this place enough. Loved it!

The Sarrasins House is centrally located in the famous town of Beynac-and-Cazenac. It's a great location to enjoy the many attractions of the 'Perigord Noir' region. Surrounded by middle-age castles, century gardens, traditional cities and villages, you will have plenty of sightseeing activities to discover what makes this French region so typical and attractive.

For sport lovers, or just family activities, you will enjoy paddling down the river Dordogne, climbing the cliffs or exploring caves, fighting emotions when tree-climbing, or simply hiking in the forests and villages... For a special treat, you can even embark in a hot-air-balloon trip above the castles and villages.

From Monday to Sunday in the high season, surrounding villages one after the other host traditional markets where you can find the best products. The Saint-Cyprien market takes place all year long on Sundays and will be a great way to start you week with us.
