ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ON THE VILLAGE & AREA
Le Poujol is set in the wonderful Dordogne area with beautiful chateaux & historic sites of the Hundred Years War (1337-1453) between England & France. The stunningly romantic village of Beynac, which rises dramatically from the valley floor & which was once the home of Richard the Lionheart, will enchant & captivate you at every turn, from its narrow medieval streets lined with soft honey coloured stone houses, shops, art galleries & restaurants to its magnificent Chateau, perched high on top the cliff, which has majestically watched over the Dordogne valley since 1150. You may already be familiar with Beynac & the surrounding Dordogne Valley area from watching such films as 'Chocolat', 'Joan of Arc', 'The Musketeer' and 'Timeline'.
This is one of the loveliest areas of the Dordogne, a 'not to be missed' stop for any traveller. The central Perigord Noir location allows you to visit the nearby attractions very easily, whether it be the world famous prehistoric cave paintings at Lascaux, or the World Heritage Classified Vezere Valley with its many Stone Age relics and cave paintings dating from 20,000 years ago. Maybe, you might like to visit the vineyards of Bergerac & St.Emilion, or the perfectly preserved medieval town of Sarlat & some of the many fortified castles & Bastide towns which are all within a short drive from Beynac. If you wish to go Hot Air Ballooning as the sun rises over the surrounding castles that can be arranged too.
It is all here for you to do whether its drifting down the river in a canoe or eating in a Michelin starred restaurant, we will try our best to arrange it for you - even the sunshine.
