Centrally located in the medieval centre of Beaulieu. Light and airy 1 bedroom apt. on the 3rd floor of a 15th century home. Original exposed roof beams throughout the apt., views of the 12th century church, village rooftops and hillsides. Walking distance to cafes, shops, boulangeries + river.

The space

This medieval colombage home is now 3 one bedroom fully furnished and equipped apartments. Each one has its own unique charm, La Dordogne, La Correze and on the top floor is La Charente. The house was uninhabitable and in a perilous condition when we bought her. We spent 5 years rebuilding and renovating. She is a new house inside her medieval exterior. All apartments are 3 star meuble de tourisme rated.

We have kept as many of the original interior features as possible. This apartment being at the top of the building features exposed original roof beams throughout. Also during works we found medieval carved wall beams, now a feature in the bedroom wall. Large Velux windows make this apartment very light and airy with views of the village rooftops, the church and surrounding hillsides. The lobby and stairwell back wall is of pointed stones. We hope you enjoy the experience of living in a medieval village in a 15th century house with its insides offering you all the modern comforts and conveniences.

Guest access

Entry to the apartments is at the side of the property. Each apartment is fitted with an interphone but you must take your keys with you so you can re-enter if you all go out together. There is a communal stairwell to level one and two and Apartment 3 is entered on the 2nd floor as its staircase is inside the apartment.

Interaction with guests

I will meet you on your arrival to show you your apartment and get you settled in, give you the keys etc. Then I will return on your departure to collect the keys. You are welcome to contact me during your stay for any needs, questions or problems.

Other things to note

As this is a medieval home in a medieval village garages are a rarity! There is a parking area behind the church very close to the house and off the main road. All parking in Beaulieu is free and in ample supply either in lots or along the streets. During summer there are occasional night markets and vide graniers/brocantes held in the old centre and near the house.

During July and August on Monday evenings there is a Marché de Producteurs held by the river near the Chapel. You can purchase food and volunteers will BBQ it for you. Tables and benches are provided, a beverage tent and live music.

There is an ironing board and iron available.

Great stay at Laura's lovely apartments. Right in the middle of the village, newly renovated and immaculate! We took two apartments and everything in both was just great. Spacious, clean, and everything provided that you could possibly want, including little bottles of champagne on arrival :)) Highly recommend staying here!

Our stay in Laura and Tom's apartment was perfect. From the moment Laura met us to the moment we left, we honestly couldn't fault it. We enjoyed it that much we added on extra days to our stay. The apartment itself felt like a second home – comfortable, clean and welcoming. Being an historic building within the medieval town, Laura and Tom's recent refurbishment superbly mixes original architecture with a modern living space. Beaulieu-sur-Dordogne is a special place set within beautiful surroundings. The people are friendly and the town itself has everything you need. It's also the perfect base to explore further afield. We thoroughly recommend staying in Laura and Tom's apartment. We can't wait to go back.

Très bel appartement, situation très intéressante, beaucoup de charme, accueil de qualité mais l'isolation phonique avec l'extérieur et les voisins est parfois gênante.

Très disponible, L'aura à su s'adapter à nos contraintes horaires. Un accueil super chaleureux et plein de bonne attentions à notre arrivée. Le logement est fantastique, beau , très bien décoré, super bien équipé et idéalement situé. Le calme au coeur d'un village plein de charme. Pour nous motards qui arrivont avec le minimum de choses, ce fut un bonheur de trouver tout le confort et les fournitures diverses (linge de toilette, un peu d'épicerie, café. ... ). Tout est conforme à la description et même plus. Bravo à Laura et Tom pour cette magnifique rénovation. Nous recommandons et reviendrons sans doute.

We have traveled and worked in many countries and chose to live in France. We bought this 15th century house in a terrible condition and have rebuilt and converted it into 3 separate one bedroom apartments. It has been 5 years in the making and we look forward to sharing this part of France with our guests.
