The Beaupouyet forest (35mins from Bergerac) is a great place where you can bring your children, have a picnic and spend an afternoon of fun with lots of outdoor activities to do!
You can choose to go for an 1 hour walk with the whole family.
It’s a very easy walk of 4,4 km with a starting point from the carpark. We use, once again, the very reliable and free app randogps (https://goo.gl/JjoKgr)
You can have a go at the numerous educational forest games: maze where you need to find 8 terrifying monsters from the greek mythology, arboretum , hides to spy on the wildlife … This is fun and holds an excellent learning experience without boring children!
Today, I d like to share with you another secret picnic location near Bergerac. It's in the village of Tuilières, in a quiet location away from the traffic… so secret that there is no signpost! It's a wonderfully relaxing place with the Dordogne at your feet!!
Bonus, you get a unique view of the Dam of Tuilières, one of the oldest hydroelectric sites in the Dordogne Valley!
Location: park your car right outside the Tuilières Power Station, follow the footpath on your left towards Creysse.
Yesterday afternoon, we discovered our new favorite picnic spot near Bergerac. It's in the village of Mouleydier, in a quiet location away from the traffic… so secret that there is no signpost! It's a wonderfully relaxing place with the Dordogne at your feet!!
Location: after Avenue des Martyrs de la Resistance in Mouleydier and just before the bridge, take the small street between the Spar Shop and a pizza take away place.
Mouleydier is located 20km (25min drive) from our rental in Beaumont du Perigord and 10km from Bergerac (15min drive).
