When you fly into Bergerac, it takes only 20 minutes to drive from there to this very beautiful and secure house, yet a stone's throw away from the centre of the pretty little village of Beaumont du Perigord. The village is close enough to be really convenient but just the right distance away to not feel like you're right in the middle of it. The handful of little patisseries, butchers, restaurants and cafe/bars situated around the village square are perfect to pick up groceries from or to relax outside of. A slightly larger supermarket is just a five minute drive up the road. The house itself offered plenty of space, so you never feel like you are under one another's feet. The interior decor is clean and modern, ideal if you were staying out of season or had a rainy day inside. The pool area is gorgeous, peaceful and a great sun trap. The surrounding countryside is beautiful and perfect for long walks or runs.

The Dordogne region

Climate : The summers are quite hot with an average of 30-35°degres and even hotter sometimes so don't forget your sunscreen lotion. The best months to come over and visit the area are may and June because the days could be delightfully warm.September and October are also excellent : after some morning fog, the sun comes through and the afternoons are warm and pleasant. Average temperatures for september & may : 24°c (75°F), for october : 18°c (64°F).

History : If you're mad into history... this is the perfect area. The Dordogne is packed with pre historic places (Les Eysies for example), castles, and bastides, medieval towns...

Places of interest : vineyards with wine tasting, local cheese (Trappe d'Echourgnac for example), Bergerac (Cyrano).

For kiddies, you can experience some fun canoeing on the Dordogne or Vezere, visit pre historic caves (Gouffre de Proumeyssac) or the biggest aquarium in soft water (Aquarium du Périgord Noir), go-karting, and the list goes on. ....If you feel brave enough you can even go on life time experience : a trip on a hot air ballon to admire the Dordogne valley and its beautiful sites.


Beaumont area presents a thousand good reasons to explore it, with its attractive bastides (Beaumont, Molières), its picturesque villages (Monsac, Montferrand) and its well-preserved historical buildings, both small (dovecotes, wash-places), and large (castle, churches). Some sites are not to be missed : the abbey of St Avit Senieur, classified as a UNESCO world heritage site, the fortified church of Beaumont, Bannes and Montferrand castles... where echoes remain of the sound of battle.

The bastide of Beaumont du Perigord was built by the English in the 12th c during the 100 years war between France and England, thus the area is steeped in history. Beaumont is situated in the middle of the bastides (fortified towns), each one being placed about 16 kms from the other which equated to about a day's march for the defending armies. The bastides of Montpazier, Villereal, Cadouin, Issigeac and Molieres are all within such a circle. Further afield there is Sarlet (50kms) and Bergerac (25kms). Bergerac International Airport is 20 mins away.

Most of the local towns and villages host a weekly market where fresh local produce and local wines are sold. Beaumont host a market on Tuesdays and Saturdays, Lalinde on Thursdays, Issigeac on Sundays, Le Bugue on Tuesdays and an excellent night market at Beaumont on Monday evening.
