Beynac - listed in 'The most beautiful villages of the Dordogne'.
Just a 25 min. drive east from Domaine De Leygue.
The beautiful village of Beynac is spread along the northern bank of the Dordogne River, and then winds up the hill to the chateau perched above.
The highlight of Beynac is certainly the Chateau de Beynac, set on top of a cliff overlooking a bend in the Dordogne River and much of the little village of Beynac itself. The village as a whole is unmissable if you are in the Dordogne region. We believe it is one of the most impressive sights in France. Its current tranquillity standing in stark contrast to the turbulent battles it has known in the past. The restaurants in Beynac offer a high standard of food, and if you choose a table overlooking the river, the waiter crosses the road to serve you, taking waiter service to a whole new level !
Even if you have no interest in the magnificent views across miles of beautiful countryside you will surely want to stand in the same spot as Richard The Lionheart.
