Our area :
The department of Dordogne is a part of the Nouvelle Aquitaine region.
It is the 1st producer of strawberry and walnuts in France.
The Perigord Noir as part of Dordogne area gets its name from the abundant oak forests. It is well known for its gastronomy and more particularly for its product related to duck (magret, confit…) or goose such as “foie gras”. It is also one of the most famous mushrooms area in France with truffles which grows underground at the base of the oaktree and are called Black Diamonds) and cepes which are just wonderful sliced in omelettes.
The region is offering a large variety of prehistoric sites with troglodytic housing in the cliffs like Les Eyzies (30 mn from Beynac) in the Vezere Valley but also the worldwide famous paeolithic cave paintings of Lascaux (40 mn from Beynac) dating back to more than 17.000 years. Some other jewels like Padirac cave complex and less famous like Maxange caves with eccentric concretions in Le Buisson (30 mn from Beynac) are just fantastic.
But the Perigord accounts for lots of medieval castles and bastides as fortified medieval towns like Domme, Belves, Montpazier (from 10 to 35 mn from Beynac).
Perigord is a paradise for the walkers : it offers a beautiful environment in which to walk surrounded by walnut orchard, dramatic cliffs, discovering chateaux , prehistoric sites…
Beynac has a long history : it has been inhabited in the Bronze age 2000 years bc… but the castle has been built in the 9th century in order to control this stretch of the Dordogne from Vikings. The chateau has remained in the hands of the Beynac family during more than 500 years from 13th till 18th century and during the 100 years war, Beynac was one of the French strongholds whereas on the other side of the river Castelnaud was in english hands
Beynac lies in the heart of the Perigord Noir valley of the 5 chateaux (Castelnaud, Marquessac, Fayrac, Beynac and les Milandes) and is in the middle of the golden triangle : Sarlat (10 km), Domme (10 km), Les Eyzies (30 km).
Beynac is a perfect starting point to visit all cultural sites of the Dordogne.
