Par La Rivière

Cenac et St Julien, Dordogne
Bed & Breakfast

Unwind on your terrace to birdsong, the creak of canoes and, occasionally, jazz music drifting across the cliffs from Château de Marquayssac


3 rooms


Rooms sleep 2


Sophisticated simplicity in deep countryside, down by the river Dordogne. Light rooms and lovely breakfasts in the beautifully converted barn extension of Canadian Allison and Reg’s farmhouse are just great. The first floor’s a huge, beamed, open-plan space, with the ultra-modern bathroom up on a platform and the calm, comfortable sleeping and sitting area – with slipper bath – below. The similarly stylish ground floor has a separate sitting room and terrace overlooking the big garden and its lawns, mature trees and a central swimming pool. And, coming soon, the two-storey Bakehouse. Relax, join the canoeists, walk Murphy the wolfhound.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Reginald & Allison Ashby

  • The Dordogne is said to have 1001 castles and chateaux throughout the region; Château de Castelnaud, Château de Montfort, Château des Milandes, Château de Baynac...
  • There are many picturesque villages to visit in the region; Rocamador, Sarlat de Canade, Domme, Belves, Monpazier, La Roque Gageac..

  • The Dordogne offers some of the most important prehistoric sites in the world - Les Eyzies, Lascaux, Font de Gaume and La Ferrassie are just a few.
  • The Dordogne is in the heart of some of the finest vineyards in the world. There are many local vineyards worth visiting here a few; Jauertie, Montbazillac, Clos des Verdots...
