Myself, partner and two teenagers stayed here in June for a week and found the Fleurie a perfect base full of home comforts. It was well equipped, spacious and was in the most stunning of locations. We found it convenient for several great bars and restaurants ( one right next door) and as we were there during a heatwave walked daily to the open air swimming pool. We fished in the river (license is needed but we didn't get checked) and became regulars at The Voyageurs bar by the market square. Whilst it wasn't a problem for us at all, the quaintness of the building did mean the loo and shower room were quite small but we found it added to the character.
We were on the top floor and found the stairs a daily work out but still didn't find this a problem but those with mobility problems would need to consider this - the description does mention it.
We will definitely be returning and have discussed bringing friends with us as there are two separate apartments.

Beaulieu is a lovely place and the apartment is well placed to enjoy the town and the river. There is a a weir at Beaulieu which means the river is slow moving and very pretty. We have two kids aged 3 and 6 at the time who loved the place and the area. Great to swim in the river although a little cold. There is a shallow bathing area where you can easily walk into the river on the opposite side and an outside swimming pool. We did a few greta day trips to the local railway at Martel, canoeing in the Dordogne, choose a warm day ( can get cold otherwise with young kid) and Rocamadour, where the kids walked bottom to top and we had a picnic at the top. Beaulieu has nearby bakers and supermarket on edge of town about a mile away. Beautiful town and the accommodation does what it says on the tin. The photos sold us on the place and were accurate. In a perfect world you would have a balcony to sit out on - instead we settled on the river bank which was a lovely place to while away the odd hour. Highly recommended as long as you are OK with steep stairs. The flat is well located and has all the amenities required. the town in July/August had regular evening events on the river bank which added to the week we were there.
The flat is stunningly situated a few yards from the river in a handsome small town that is not completely overrun by tourists. We particularly liked the very bright kitchen and living area, which looks out over the river and a 12th century church. Bakery, butcher, etc. are all within easy walking distance and Beaulieu is the perfect base from which to explore the area.
