Last week (Tues 9th of april 2019), we decided to check on the Green Lane progress between Prigonrieux and Bergerac ie Le Chemin de la Batellerie (walk connected to the Pierre Loti footpath from the Bergerac port: my article here).
Work is still in progress with some parts already done (tarmac) and some not.
Are you a sports enthusiast looking for an active holiday?
Our village, Beaumont du Périgord, has everything for the whole family.
Here’s four family friendly sport activities you can do while enjoying your stay here!
1- Horse riding (Centre Equestre du Pays Beaumontois)
If you are a horse/poney lover, there is no reason why you should not be able to practise your favorite sport even during your holiday.
Right outside our village, 5 mins drive from our rental, you’ll find the “Centre Equestre du Pays Beaumontois”, a Horse and Pony Riding School run by Isabelle and Luc. With their 13 horses and 21 ponies, they offer different activities from 1 hour ride for beginners to day ride or even longer rides out in Pays Beaumontois for more experienced riders.
And on markets days (night market on monday from 6.30pm, tuesday and saturday morning), children will enjoy getting on the back of one of these gracious creatures to go around the village, up the secrets passages and even around to their secret snack spot for some grass.
Lalinde Canal, built between 1838 and 1843, was designed to improve navigation from the village of Mauzac to Tuilières. The arrival of railway saw the decline of river transport and the canal become obsolete but it is gradually regaining importance and is now especially prized as beautiful place for walking and fishing.
So come along and enjoy watching pike, trout, perch swimming or indeed sunbathing… and discover the beauty of this peaceful place away from the traffic, hustle and bustle free of charge.
