Old traditional house carefully restored and very functional. Built on two levels with superb garden in terraces and panoramic view on old town of Belvès and the valley.

Two terraces in the garden; one is under a shaded pergola. Each terrace is furnished with table and chairs..

The garden is a traditional kitchen garden and you can collect and eat your own tomatoes or aromatics plants.

Due to central situation of Belvès it is easy to radiate towards the great tourist and archaeological sites of Black Périgord: Museum of Eysies, Lascaux, the bastide of Monpazier, the valleys of the Dordogne and Vézère, and more...

The house has four rooms on first floor: kitchen, dining room, living room and one bedroom with simple bed and bathroom.

The Aquitaine/Dordogne region

The Dordogne region is divided into 4 parts:

The Périgord Vert (green) is named for the verdant hills around Nontron in the North. Many rivers criss-cross this section.

The Périgord Blanc (white) is so named because of the landscape's exposed limestone, which has been used for building materials in the cities.

The Périgord Pourpre (purple) is, as you might expect, a wine region. Wines take the names of the towns on the map, Bergerac and Monbazillac.

The Périgord Noir (black) is probably of the most interest to the traveller. It is here that the underground is laced with prehistoric painted and engraved caves -- Over 150 sites line the Vézère river alone. The region is dark with trees, especially walnuts, for which it is famous, as well as being known for its black truffles. The centre of the study of the region's prehistory is here as well, in the new National Museum of Prehistory perched on a cliff in the village of Les-Eyzies-de-Tayac.


How much time need to visit the Perigord Noir? If you like history, ancient castles and fortifications, prehistoric painted caves, natural beauty, and great cuisine you would not completely cover the area in a week. You'll save money by renting a vacation house for that length of time, either in a restored medieval city or in the countryside.

You'll need a car, despite the fact that there are train stations or coaches. Most of the allure of the Dordogne is found in the countryside.

The relationships between Sarlat, Les Eyzies, and Montignac shows a golden triangle of history and prehistory. It doesn't take much driving to cover this area, the distance between Belvès and Sarlat is only 35 km and between Belvès and Les Eyzies is only 24 km.

Les Eyzies - The National Museum of Prehistory, lunch at the Cro-Magnon Hotel (built into the limestone cliff, highly recommended cuisine), then a visit to Font de Gaume cave, just outside the tiny village of Les Eyzies. Most of the paintings here date back to the Magdalenian (12,000 bc).

Beynac - Cap Blanc - Castelnaud - Visit the restored castle that crowns the picturesque town of Beynac, see the three dimensional carved horses of Cap Blanc, then go to the castle at Castelnaud and see how all that siege machinery worked.

Village Troglodytique de la Madeleine and Roque St-Christophe - where people have lived for 50,000 years or so.

Leave time for Lascaux in Montignac!

And do not forget the fabulous canoe ride down the Vézère river!
