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!

Fancy going on holiday but don’t know where to go? Here’s why you should consider the Dordogne Valley as your next destination!
1- Food Lovers Paradise:
Food is everywhere in The Dordogne: from foie gras, magret (duck), black truffle, cèpes (mushrooms), sermentine (bread), walnuts, trappe d’échourgnac (cheese), strawberries… The list goes on and on… So be sure to put in your suitcase some elastic waist pants !
Visit any french market and experience the variety and wealth of products … or better visit a night market to sample local food freshly cooked in front you and dance all night long!
And if you’re looking for a good restaurant, we recomment “La Table de Leo” in St Avit Senieur!
2- Quality and Cost Effective Wines
And how can we talk about food without mentioning wine?
Lonely Planet’s says, “Since [it’s] not as famous as Bordeaux and St-Émilion, the area around Bergerac is an essential, and affordable, stop for wine buffs.”
Need some help to learn about local wines and sample them? No problem! We can organise wine tours by taxi with local vineyards.
3- Plenty To Do and See
The Dordogne also called the Land of the 1000 Castles has plenty to do and see. Here’s our Top 10 things To Do in the area:https://goo.gl/kA4QxN
4- Location, location, location
Easily accessible by plane, train or by car, the Dordogne is a great destination. British Airways and low cost airlines like Ryanair, Jet2, Flybe… land everyday into Bergerac airport. More details about Bergerac airport: https://goo.gl/NqK9Cs
And if you’re looking to stay in a village and discover the area, we recommend Beaumont du Périgord, 20mins drive from Bergerac. Here’s why: https://goo.gl/ZT5Lfp
