Ma Super Petite Boutique, is our new village shop in Beaumont du Perigord (only 5 mins walk from our rental, l’Ancienne Ecole).
Behind this small retail business “Ma Super Petite Boutique”, meet two women with a will power: Ariane Goumand and Sandrine Hutin !
After the closure of the convenience shop, Casino, and the move of the pharmacy outside the village, Ma Super Petite Boutique was born to bring essentials, local products and crafts to the village 7 days of the week.
In partnership with local producers (50kms around Beaumont), the shop is a local business with a twist. It stocks and sells fresh, local, seasonal products in bulk or not, organic or not, well known or not (fruit, veggies, cheese, beers, .. kombucha, shiitakee mushrooms, macaron stuffed with foie gras, ….) but also local crafts (soaps, jewelry, pottery, home decor & accessories .. ).
And for those who are stuck for basics on a sunday morning, trust Ma Super Petite Boutique to save the day !
More than a corner shop, Ma Super Petite Boutique, wants to grow up and become a buzzing hub where people can meet up and talk around a hot drink.
Last december, the shop celebrated its first anniversary and we, at l’Ancienne Ecole, wish its two owners successful and properous year ahead!
My favorite corner in the shop has to be the one dedicated to local talented artists! I keep drooling on Graines D’Art: delicate colourful jewelry creations made by Claire from Costa Rica seeds!

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.

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.
