Beynac-et-Cazenac lies 10 kilometres southwest of Sarlat, on the banks of the Dordogne, and boasts an imposing castle (which was once besieged by Richard the Lion Heart) around which the typically Périgordine “lauze” stone slab-roofed houses with their creamy façades are built.

Walking up the hill from the riverbank you will reach the castle, perched on a cliff, which can be seen for miles around. The castle is in excellent condition, with a great restaurant serving traditional dishes. The views of the Dordogne valley are breathtaking from the ramparts of the castle.

Back down in the village here are some small boutique shop, hotels, restaurants and cafes, as well as the famous ‘Gabarre’ boat tours which can be taken from the quayside near to the public car park.

More information can be found on the Beynac website.

As one of the main routes in and out of the Périgord Noir between Sarlat and Bergerac you are bound to pass through the village so take some time to visit it!
