Saint Cyprien is situated on the hillside above the River Dordogne and makes a perfect base for visiting the fabulous caves, beautiful villages and lovely scenery that this section of the Dordogne is famous for.

Saint Cyprien has a beautiful old town which winds uphill towards the 12th century belltower and the abbey church which dominate the town.

Arriving at St Cyprien you are first greeted by the commercial area with supermarket. Head up to the town centre and you first get to the main street, the Rue Gambetta. Along here are loads of restaurants and bars and a number of boutiques - some are very nice, there is an excellent shop selling beautiful cabinets and sinks for the bathroom. If you are looking for a meal or a coffee this is the street to head for. The tourist information office is on this street and they can give you a very useful map for exploring the old town. Whilst on the Rue Gambetta look at the detail of the buildings, there are some lovely balconies and carved stone window surrounds.

*** The real treat of St Cyprien is behind the Rue Gambetta, it is here that the old town starts. Behind the Tourist Office is the Place de la Liberte. From here head up the Rue du Terme leading up towards the abbey.*** There is a stately 18th century Chartreuse (a Perigordian mansion house) here which was built for the chief officer of the French Royal Navy. There are some other wonderful buildings neighbouring the Chartreuse.

On the Rue de la Justice de Paix look out for a door with a heart carved above it. This belonged to a religious institution and parts date to the 12th century. It even has an underground passage.

Leading above the town are a number of steep narrow lanes. The houses here are squeezed together as everyone wanted to be inside the city wall. This area of town is called "Montmartre" and has excellent views of St Cyprien and the Dordogne valley below.

The abbey of Saint Cyprien has an interesting history. Back in 620AD a hermit called St Cyprien took up residence in a cave overlooking the Dordogne Valley. Gradually a religious community grew up around him. Barbarian invasions of the 9th century led monks to build defensive walls.

In 1568 during the Religious Wars the priory was destroyed. The monastery was rebuilt in 1685 though the bell-tower and keep remain from the 12th century.

The highlight for me in St Cyprien was just ambling round the medieval streets admiring the wonderful architecture scattered throughout.

Market day in St Cyprien is a Sunday morning. A good place to buy the culinary highlights of the region: Foie gras, walnut cake, wines of Monbazillac, Pecharmant and Bergerac as well as fresh fruit and vegetables.


Central heating and log fire means the house remains cosy all year round. Ideal for autumn and spring stays which are equally delightful times to visit or for longer lets for house-hunters during winter.

Bed linen, bath and hand towels, bath mats and tea towels are provided.
Welcome hamper on arrival

No smoking inside cottage please. No Pet.
Suitable for young children (cot and higchair available on simple request)

Changeover day is Saturday during the high season other days considered during mid and low seasons.
Last minute short lets may be possible.

Please ask if you have any special requirements and we will do our best to help. We are looking forward to meeting you and handing over the key to a very special holiday



Sabine was a lovely host, very responsive to our needs. The apartment is well-located and quiet. Kitchen was well-stocked and spacious. The rooms were of nice size too. Definitely recommend.
Une magnifique maison située idéalement dans le Périgord
Le logement, très idéalement situé, est meublé avec goût et soin. Nous avons pu profiter les soirs de la petite terrasse pour dîner tout au calme. Lorsque nous le souhaitions, nous étions également à moins d'une minute à pied des restaurants du village. Le logement est donc très pratique ! Merci beaucoup pour le logement qui était d'excellente qualité
Maison traditionnelle très bien située au cœur d'un petit village attachant du Périgord Noir. La réactivité et la qualité de l'accueil de Sabine ont permis de se sentir bien dès notre arrivée notamment par la petite attention d'un panier de produits locaux. Il est à remarquer que contrairement à certaines locations, la maison est très bien équipée que ce soit aussi bien en vaisselle qu'en produits du quotidien (cuisine et salle de bains). Cette première expérience donne envie d'y retourner à la belle saison !
This is the most beautiful home in one of the most charming little villages in the Périgord noir region of the Dordogne. Smack in the middle of town but a few streets from the main route through town, it is super quiet (except for the amazing light ringing of bells in the distance), but a few steps away from local restaurants and the wonderful Sunday market. Parking is a few steps away, there are beautiful views, a huge kitchen, two bathrooms, and nice touches when we arrived. We were left wanting for nothing.
We had a wonderful stay in St Cyprien. The house and the village were beautiful. The house was quiet, clean, comfortable and wonderfully French. Thanks Sabine
Maison avec beaucoup de charme et bien située.
La maison est très agréable, conforme a nos attentes et la région est très belle. Sabine a est attentionnée et fait en sorte que votre séjour se passe le mieux possible.
Our second stay in this superb home. We were once again visiting to check up on work on our own property nearby. The house didn't disappoint, and Sabine was a fantastic host. The property is perfectly situated for all of the amenities St Cyprien has to offer, and is an ideal jumping-off point for the many activities the region has to offer. The balcony is an added bonus.
Gelungener Urlaub
Sehr charmantes altes Haus mitten in Saint-Cyprien, dennoch ruhig gelegen. Ausgestattet mit allem, was man braucht. Netter Empfang (bei Ankunft fanden sich Wein, Wasser und Kekse auf dem Küchenblock). Sehr nette und hilfsbereite Ansprechpartner (Sabine und Christophe) vor Ort: die Agentur "En Toutes Saisons" befindet sich um die Ecke - zwei Minuten zu Fuß. Viele attraktive Ziele sind - mit dem Auto - schnell zu erreichen (Chateau de Beynac, Chateau des Milandes, Sarlat, schöne Badestellen an der Dordogne, etc.). Jederzeit wieder!
Our family of four enjoyed our stay in Saint-Cyprien so much! This is a sweet, characterful home just steps away from all the amenities of a lively town in the midst of the beautiful Périgord Noir. The kitchen is well-stocked for cooking, allowing you to enjoy the wonderful produce of the twice-weekly market in town from the comfort of the pretty terrace. A good boulangerie/patisserie is only a block away, making for very easy breakfasts! Sabine is a lovely host and has compiled a very helpful binder of information about the area, which has a veritable wealth of things to do within a 20-minute drive or less. The town is truly a living one, as opposed to a tourist one, and we enjoyed meeting the locals (and their cats!) during our evening walks, as well as participating in this year’s World Cup excitement! It’s true that guests are expected to clean the home before departure or pay an additional fee for cleaning; that said, all is provided to make cleaning an easy experience. We would definitely stay here again!
We really enjoyed our stay in St. Cyprien and the chance to live in such a characterful property with great views of the village.

Lovely village house in great area!
Great central location within walking distance of boulangeries, bars and restaurants. Easy access to many lovely tourist locations inc. various canoe/kayak rentals. Would be happy to recommend.
Excellent home in small medieval town
My wife and I spent three weeks in Le Terme during the late spring and summer. The house is centrally located in a small, historic and very scenic town that at the same time is a real working village, rather than simply a tourist destination. A few steps takes one to the main shopping street with bakeries and other stores, including a few small but good restaurants. There is a large supermarket not far away, for larger supply runs. The house itself is on two levels, with kitchen and dining/living area on the ground floor, and two large bedrooms upstairs. Everything necessary for a pleasant, convenient stay is available in the house. There is parking on the street a few steps from the door. St. Cyprien is centrally located for most of the main attractions of the Black Perigord, and lies next to the Dordogne River, so there is plenty to do just at one's doorstep. The town has a renowned market on Sundays that attracts people from all over the area. All in all, Le Terme is a very attractive rental for a couple or small family.
My husband and I have traveled to France many times and have stayed in some wonderful self-accomodating flats through VRBO and Home Away, so we had high hopes for our one month booking in St. Cyprien. Let's just say this charming flat exceeded our expectations! If location is important to you as a traveler as you explore the Perigord Noir region then this is a spot on destination! And if you insist on comfort, cleanliness, a well-organized kitchen and large, open interior spaces then look no further. This lovely property is well equipped, lovingly decorated, and well managed. Modern touches in a building full of character (oh we loved those terraces) are much appreciated! The city itself offers a fine variety of boulangerie/patisserie shops, boucheries, and a large grocery store just a few blocks away. And do not miss the Sunday Market held in the middle of St. Cyprien! We explored the many, many attractions found within easy driving distance: Dordogne River views, chateaux, medieval villages, churches and abbeys, vineyards, walnut orchards, duck and goose farms, canoe and kayak rentals, walking/hiking trails, and caves full of prehistoric paintings, sculptures, and engravings. The folks in the Tourist Information Center are very, very helpful! Thank you, Sabine, for your warm welcome (including the selection of local treats you left on the kitchen island) and for attending to our needs during our month-long stay. It was very difficult to close the door on our last day and walk away. We give your flat our highest recommendation!
"Sehr schön und geschmackvoll renoviertes Ferienhaus mit gut ausgestatteter Küche. Schöne Ausflugsmöglichkeiten in der näheren Umgebung. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und können das Haus sehr empfehlen."

Even with cool spring weather and some rain we enjoyed the castles, ancient caves, farm markets, quaint towns, spring flowers and beautiful scenery of the Dordogne. We enjoyed some meals out, but it was also fun to bring our food and wine purchases back to our well supplied kitchen to cook and enjoy. The house had all we could ask for and was clean and inviting. The owners were kind and helpful. I am hoping to return soon.

We would not have done better! When we sit out on the balcony and look out on this enchanting square, we ask ourselves if this can be real or are we dreaming?
Everything about Le Terme and St Cyprien is just perfect. Thank you both very much.

Thank you for sharing your wonderful home with us. We enjoyed many things about our stay. The house is very comfortable and the town is so peacful! We had fun on many day trips within the region. our favorites were a canoe trip down the river, visiting caves with pre-historic art, and exploring Chateau Castelnaud. Our children learned a great deal about your culture and your history. Our memories from our trip here will last a life time. richard, Karen, Jack & Ka. - Pittsburgh, USA
