The Cabanes du Breuil

A world of dry stones

Welcome to the cabins of Breuil

The "Cabanes du Breuil are former agricultural outbuildings of a farm located in Saint-André-d'Allas near Sarlat and the castle of Puymartin.

The huts sometimes called bories are found here and there in the Sarlat region, but what makes the huts of Le Breuil special is their number in this place and the fact that they have been magnificently restored and enhanced to such an extent that they have been classified as historical monuments.

They have been converted into a museum dedicated to their history, dry-stone construction techniques and a tribute to the owners who undertook their restoration.

Dating from the 19th or early 20th century, these buildings are distinguished by their corbelled vault in dry stone covered with flat limestone: the lauzes.
Three of them are glued to each other and seem to form a single building.

This timeless postcard landscape has been used as a setting for several films such as Jacquou le croquant, D'Artagnan or Les Misérables.

In addition to the buildings, which are worth the detour, you will be able to discover old farming equipment and be welcomed by the geese, peacocks, sheep and chickens that live there.

And if you are lucky (once a month), you will be able to come on the day when the stone bread oven is lit and bread is made according to the traditional gestures.

This timeless place is waiting for you, you can bring your picnic for lunch on the spot.
