Where is Beynac?

I've been searching my map of France and can't find it. Might it be too small to be shown? What is it near? Thanks.

It's in the Dordogne area, not far from Sarlat.

Full name is Beynac-et-Cazenac. Just a bit southeast of Sarlat.

Beynac or Beynac-Et-Cazenac?

According to the Michelin Road Atlas, it is Beynac-et-Cazenac.

Hi S,

If you want the one in the Perigord, enter Beynac-et-Cazenac at www.viamichelin.com

The town on the Dordogne river with the castle of the 100 years war fame is officially named "Beynac-et-Cazennac". However, Beynac is on the river under the castle, about 12 kms from Sarlat in the direction of Bergerac and Bordeaux. Cazennac does not seem to have any town centre as such and it is about 2-3 km up a narrow road past farm land that leads off the road along the river through Beynac. Having stayed in Beynac (aka "Beynac-et-Cazenac") and walked to Cazennac (also aka "Beynac-et-Cazenac") I can say that Beynac and Cazenac are officially part of one town with a combined name but physically distinct.

And there's the Beynac about a 15-20 minute drive southwest of Limoges. We drove through there several years ago. About 150 km north of Beynac-et-Cazenac.

Rufus, would you recommend going to see the Beynac near Limoges, as opposed to Beynac-et-Cazenac?

No, I would not recommend the Beynac near Limoges over Beynac-et-Cazenac as a tourist destination.
