Summer in the Dordogne is always busy and there are always plenty of things to see and do !

One of our favorite is the Summer Night Market or Foodie Market (“Marche Gourmand”). If you’re in the area, it’s the best way to spend a brillant evening feasting on local food, freshly cooked in front of you and dance to your heart’s content.

It’s a very popular event and it’s no wonder it’s one of the highlight of our village, Beaumont du Périgord (Dordogne, SW of France) !

Every monday at 6.30pm, simply walk up the street from our vacation rental home to the market square, the beating heart of our village, to mingle with the locals and share an fantastic evening. Grab one of the tables which are set up and walk around the market stalls to buy directly from the local producers whatever you fancy for supper. Market traders provide everything from wine, starters, cooked meals (Lamb kebabs, duck sausages, mussels, black pudding, lamb chops.simple sausages or steaks, with chips naturally..). and deserts (yummy freshly picked strawberries….)and each supply the appropriate plastic cups or cutlery. There is something for all tastes. So you can choose your meal and take it back to the table and enjoy dining under the stars, al frescoe with music by a local band.

The Riding School CEPB is also present at the square to delight little ones with its pony rides! It’s a fun way to discover the cobbled streets of our village!

You’ll find similar Night Markets all around The Dordogne.

Don’t Hold Back On Our #BookDirect Day Special Offer!!!

Today, it’s a BIG day, it’s #BookDirect Day!!!!

And, here, at l’Ancienne Ecole, we have a surprise to make this day even better! So, stay tuned for more information later…

Before, just in case you did not know about it, here’s 7 reasons why you should book directly with the owner your next vacation rental ( Source: VRM Intel and Amy Hinote).

1 AVOID THE FEES.
Did you know that Airbnb, VRBO, HomeAway and TripAdvisor add hundreds of dollars of fees to your booking total?

2 HELPS MAKE YOUR STAY BETTER.
When booking a vacation rental, peace of mind is important. Want to know if there is a grill, a kayak, 24/7 service, a grocery store close by? When you book direct, you can find out many of these important questions and more before you commit to booking.

3 THE BEST PRICE ISN’T ON OTAS OR LISTING SITES.
Unlike hotels, OTAs and aggregators (like Airbnb, Expedia,Booking.com, VRBO.comm, HomeAway,TripAdvisor, and FlipKey) don’t have the best price for travelers. In fact, you can save hundreds by booking direct and booking local.

4 MANY OF THE BEST VACATION RENTALS AREN’T LISTED ON THE MAJOR SITES.
Because of the cost of using the big sites, the best vacation homes with the highest demand cannot be found on the big websites. Along North Carolina’s beaches, alone, only 30 percent of the homes for rent can be found on the big websites. By limiting your search to the aggregating websites, you might be missing out on the best vacation home for your family or group.

5 OWNERS HAVE INTIMATE KNOWLEDGE ABOUT THE DESTINATION AND THE HOME.
They can direct you the best rental for your needs and send you to the best activities, restaurants,and area service providers.

6 IF YOU HAVE SPECIAL NEEDS, A HOMEOWNER CAN HELP.
Looking for help with your family’s special needs or help with pets? A manager or owner can work with you directly to help with any of your individual needs and give you these assurances before you commit to a booking.

7 GET SPECIAL OFFERS.
During non-peak travel times, managers and owners have special offers available: From events and activities to special rates to onsite services, with direct communication with managers and owners, you get insider knowledge and the best offers.
