On the edge of an attractive Bastide (a medieval fortified town) in the heart of the Dordogne, the Domaine de la Colombière is a holiday park offering bungalows and mobile homes in a shady setting, and consists of beautifully wooded terraces overlooking a small valley. There are no touring pitches. Access to accommodation is along steep footpaths, as all vehicles are left at the entrance to the site. A small heated swimming pool with a sun terrace is open from mid May. The village is just a short walk from the site and along its quaint streets are a variety of shops, bars and restaurants.
As well as traditional markets, Beaumont-du-Périgord is famous for its Truffle Market and in the summer there are atmospheric night-time markets. For a wider choice of shops and restaurants, Bergerac is an easy drive away and the historic town of Sarlat-le-Canéda is well worth a visit. Walkers and cyclists – and indeed horse riders – have a wide choice of way-marked routes, and the varied landscapes of Périgord Noir and Périgord Pourpre await motorists. This is a quiet site and a good base for exploring the area.
