Les Cabanes du Breuil

A world of dry stone

Welcome to Les Cabanes du Breuil

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

Cabanes, sometimes known as bories, can be found here and there in the Sarlat region, but what makes the cabanes du Breuil so special is the sheer number of them in this area, and the fact that they have been so magnificently restored and enhanced that they have been classified as a historic monument.

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

Dating from the 19th or early 20th century, these buildings are distinguished by their corbelled dry-stone vaults covered with flat limestone stones known as lauzes.
Three of them are glued together, forming a single building.

This timeless postcard landscape has been used as a backdrop for films such as Jacquou le croquant, D'Artagnan and Les Miserables.

In addition to the buildings, which are well worth a visit in themselves, you'll be able to discover old-fashioned farming equipment and be greeted by the geese, peacocks, sheep and chickens that live there.

And if you're lucky (once a month), you can come along on the day when the stone bread oven is lit and bread is baked using traditional methods.

This timeless place is waiting for you, and you can bring your own picnic lunch.
