  • Beau Champs is a modern house in quiet wooded countryside just outside the beautiful village of Marminiac, in the north Lot and on the edge of the Dordogne/Périgord region

    it is a very convenient base for visiting Dordogne and Lot highlights including Domme, Sarlat, Rocamadour, Gouffre de Padirac and St Cirq la Popie and hundreds of historic and character villages throughout the region. 

    The nearest larger towns are: Gourdon 20km,  Monpazier 25km, Cahors 35km, Sarlat 35km,  

    The north Lot and Dordogne areas offer a wealth of attractions to all types of visitor: The rural location makes just the escape worthwhile, whilst miles of quiet country roads around make exploring by bicycle a natural attraction.

    The spectacular scenery of the Dordogne river is only a short distance away with plenty of opportunity for fishing, canoeing/kayaking, leisure cruises and other water-based activities.

    The historic towns of Sarlat, Domme, Gourdon and Souillac each have their own charm and appeal - the spectacular views over the river and Dordogne valley from Domme and the tiny historic streets of the old parts of Sarlat stand out as 'must do' places to visit. Each village has its own charm, and guests will always have their own favourites.


    Besides the local towns, also within easy reach are Rocamadour and the Causse de Quercy, several cave systems including the world-famous Lascaux caves: Information on these and other attractions can be found in the Area information above, and there will be information for guests at the gite to help you plan your stay.

    There are castles aplenty to visit - several on the Dordogne river, including the very visible Montfort, or venture into the scenic hills of the south Périgord to find the complete castles of Biron and Bonaguil as the architecture and scenery begins to change from Périgourdine to Quercy


    Markets are always popular, with market days well publicised: For food lovers especially the journey south to Prayssac market on Friday will be rewarded with delicious foods from the town market and several other artisan producers in the town as well.
