We booked this place with a couple of friends and were absolutely delighted in every way. We are very experienced travels and unanimously proclaimed this a place to which we would love to return. La Petite Maison was beautifully put it out with everything we could've needed for our stay. We really enjoyed shopping the open air markets and bringing home fresh food to cook in the well-stocked kitchen, sometimes eating on the lovely stone terrace. We could not have felt more at home and would highly recommend this place, except for the fact that we want to come back without having to compete with other enthusiastic prospective guests!
The Dordogne is a beautiful area of France, dotted with some of the most beautiful of the Most Beautiful Villages of France, and Beynac ranks well among them. La Petite Maison is a walk from everything in the town, including the river, and importantly the castle (although one needs to be ready for a steep ascent - this castle was located here for defensive purposes and was built to keep people out! (Richard the Lion-Heart used to be the land-lord here - an instant winner for an old lover of Robin Hood!)
La Petite Maison was roomy, furnished with style and charm, and had all necessary amenities. It was lovely to come back to in the evening after seeing another half dozen of the spectacular neighbouring villages and chateaux. There is a very reasonable restaurant at the bottom of the path, but there are other places to go in the near vicinity (Sarlat being one of the more well known). For those not on backpacker budgets I would highly recommend a meal at Le Vieux Logis in Tremolat - a delightful restaurant (and lodgings) with a Michelin star and a simply gorgeous setting.
La Petite Maison would have been a lovely rental anywhere, but Beynac was such a charming village, this was certainly a highlight of our trip.
One caution: due to the steep hill, not necessarily perfect for someone with difficulties walking.

La Petite Maison oozes with charm. We stayed a week in January and cannot fault anything. We were well looked after by Sarissa & Martine and nothing was any trouble for them. The house is toasty warm and the fire effective and atmospheric. The kitchen is well equipped & the beds a dream.
The photos of La Petite Maison drew us in and we booked our week immediately. Having now stayed at La Petite Maison and lived in Beynac for a week our love has expanded! We could live in Beynac! It has such a cosy, homely feeling. And La Petite Maison was the icing on the cake! A home full of history and character plus all the comforts! It has been the highlight week of our 2.5mths in Europe. We feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity to stay in such a beautiful property in such a gorgeous village!
Beautiful village with a beautiful, comfortable house with all amenities needed and more. In mint condition, reasonably priced. Small but enough space for 4-5. It has everything is hard to find on this kind of rentals: good beds, linens and towels, great water pressure and always hot water! Kitchen utensils and knifes for the chef in you, even baking pads! Every single american amenities!
Owner and management are very kind and gave a lot of info of surrounding area.
Surrounding villages are beautiful as well, a lot to see and do in the area. Deeply recommend this rental, it is awesome! Hope to be back someday!
Don't think it over! Rent it, before someone gets your dates!!!You will have a memorable stay!
