(10-2018) Hi Lydia,
We are now safely back in Australia.
Pascale and Jean Bernard were wonderful- and we shall be eternally grateful for their help and kindness. They are great people.
Our friends from the UK joined us during the middle week and they had a wonderful time exploring the surrounding attractions, of which there are many. We know France reasonably well, having had several extended stays in the past. This region is right up there among the best we have experienced.
Regarding your own services- I am happy to have dealt with you and would do so again under appropriate circumstances. I remember you calling me up when I first made my enquiry. I take this as a real positive for both Tenant and Owner , and one differentiator of the service you offer. It is as important for tenants, as it is for Owners, to have assurance and personal service when the outlay, and risk, is significant.
It's too early for us to start contemplating future trips but in the event we do, we shall check with you again on the availability of properties.
We would consider returning to Beynac.
I haven't checked, but I assume our bond has been returned intact.
Please keep in touch with any offers or suggestions.
(09-2018) Hi Thijs,
sorry this is so late, we would like say a huge thank you for our delightful accommodation for our holiday. Everything seemed to be carefully thought out and left nothing wanting. We would have no hesitation in recommending your house to others and would certainly book again. Once again thank you so much for a superb holiday and also for our deposit return.
We had a great holiday in Villa Beynac. Unforgettable. Magnificent house, a fantastic location and a great garden for our dogs. A realy clean house, (you could eat from the floor). The garden was well fenced, except for a small piece at the front where our youngest dog soon had a hole in the hedge and made use of it gratefully. We held him the rest of the vacation behind the house, where he had more than enough space to lose all his energy.
Thank you again for the great guidance and service during the bookingprocess.
(08-2017) Dear Lydia,
Many thanks for everything, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Beynac last month.
I will make sure that I forward pictures and write up a review soon.
(06-2016) Hello Lydia,
As you know we had a couple of snags whilst we were at Beynac but they were addressed and resolved very well by Pascale and Jean-Bernard.
The house is lovely and we were very happy there – if a little sad to leave after a month!
An excellent holiday and I attach a couple of photos that I took which I hope you find useful.
John and sue
(07-2015) Hi Thijs,
Sorry this had taken so long...
Here is a short review for the Beynac house:
The Beynac house is delightful, set on a hill overlooking rolling countryside and the beautiful pool and barbecue areas. It is well equipped and maintained, with the friendly and helpful owners being close at hand by email or phone (polish up your French!). They own a restaurant in the nearby town of Belves - definitely worth a visit especially on market night when you can buy and eat food in the village square.
Beynac itself is self sufficient and has everything you could need, including a well stocked shop that is open on Sunday afternoons when the supermarkets are not.
It's very easy to get into Sarlat from here, where there is always something going on including numerous street acts and an outdoor theatre during the summer.
It is possible to walk from Beynac to the house or to cycle from the village but this is not for the faint hearted as it is mostly up hill - a car is a must. Bikes can be hired in the nearby village of Castlenaud from Bike Bus.
