“Fantastic holiday in the heart of a French village.”
Reviewed August 21, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

L'Ancienne Ecole is big, bright and beautifully furnished. There is plenty of room for everyone to have their own space even if the house is full to capacity. The owners, Isabelle and Paul, are friendly and welcoming and go the extra mile to make sure their guests have everything they need for the perfect holiday. Outside there are many different places to sit and enjoy the sunshine, with a lovely pool and shady outside dining area.
The house is no more than a two minute walk from the village square with a variety of shops, two bars and an excellent pizzeria. Just up one of the little lanes leading from the square is lovely restaurant, Chez Claudette, and the second restaurant is literally a few steps away from the house.
For such a small village there was a lot to do, from the marked walking trails and little shops and galleries to the entertainment on the square which ranged from morning markets and craft fairs to a range of evening entertainment including a performance of Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet" (which we watched from the nearby bar.). The fabulous "Marche des Gourmands" on a Monday evening is well worth a visit with live entertainment and a wide variety of food and drink on offer, produce of the local farms. Excellent!
Beaumont du Perigord is also an excellent base for visiting the other bastide towns in the region including Montpazier and Issigeac. Nearby Bergerac is also well worth a visit. All in all a fantastic holiday which I would recommend to anyone.

Hi Janette,
Thank you so much for your review. We are delighted you had a fantastic holiday.
You make a very good point, Beaumont du Périgord has the best of the 2 worlds : it is a small village full of things to do, buzzing with activities and also it is an excellent base if you want to discover the Dordogne.
Have a great summer
Isabelle and Paul

“Wonderful holiday with family & friends”
Reviewed August 5, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

I have just returned from a wonderful week staying at L'Ancienne Ecole. The owners Isabelle & Paul were a pleasure to deal with, making the booking process very easy & informative. I travelled with a party of 9 (5 adults/4 children) and we found the size of this house perfect. The interior was beautifully furnished, very clean & had everything we needed (including toys for the children!). The property was larger than we had imagined which gave us all plenty of space. The garden is split into different areas with plenty of seating available all around the house. We really enjoyed the BBQ & terrrace where we had some lovely lunches & evenings. The pool area was fantastic, again much larger than we expected with the added bonus of table tennis & badminton to keep us all amused. The location of this property is perfect too. Beaumont is very lovely with all the amenities in walking distance. Other places eg. Salat, Baynac & Bergerac are within easy reach by car. We all had a great holiday & would recommend staying here to anyone.

Thank you Fiona for this wonderful feedback. We're thrilled you had a fantastic time with your familly & friends in L'Ancienne Ecole (Beaumont du Périgord). I agree with you the pictures don't do it justice, the place is much bigger. That's the reason at the end of september we're gonna add a virtual tour to our advertisement. That way customers will be able to walk in the property and have a look around from the confort of their homes to get a feel for the size of the property. Have a brillant summer ! Isabelle

“Beautiful house in a lovely location”

people found this review helpful

The house was beautiful and Isabelle had equipped it to meet all of our needs. She had provided both bath and pool towels. She was very welcoming and couldn't have been more helpful. It was very convenient for the local shops and restaurants, and the surrounding countryside was very picturesque. All age groups in our party were entertained:
- 14 year-old son with ping pong and pool
- 79 year-old mother strolling around the boulangerie and charcuterie
- 18 year-old daughter happy to wander around the art galleries and sit in the bars
- five year old entertained with pony rides in the village square, board games and swimming pool
All of us enjoyed the delicious local cuisine, oh, and Bergerac wine.
