Can I tempt you with a end of Winter/beginning of Spring getaway?! We decided to reduce the rental rates at La Maisonnette for just two months (from now until the end of March). We are booked through the Summer, but have some availability during the next couple of months, and thought it would be nice to make enjoying Beynac and the rest of the French countryside more affordable. In February you will catch the tail end of truffle season (our most recent guests had a lovely time picking up truffles at the local market and then coming home and cooking them on this pretty stove) and in March you'll catch spring in the Dordogne (all of these images were taken by Scott in 03/09). Either way it's a beautiful place to spend a cozy vacation sans tourists and crowds. Plus, fares are cheaper now than they'll be for 8-9 months! You can view the calendar here for availability. Added bonus: readers will receive an extra 50€ off if you mention you came from my blog.
Also, it turns out that our favorite tour guide, Rick Steves, loves Beynac too. If you watch this video, you'll catch a glimpse of La Maisonnette about 3:54 into the clip. You'll see the castle right next door to the cottage and some seriously amazing views of the village and surrounding valley.
For those of you just tuning in, you can view all the posts about the French renovation right here.
