St Ju – The traditional Dordogne

A very popular destination with the French holidaymakers, due to its geographical location and range of historical attractions together with the river Dordogne, it remains an unspoilt French village that has escaped the fate of dusty dry empty streets of many other rural villages.

Known to the locals as St Ju, which is also the name of the Tabac/bar/pizza house, St Julien de Lampon is a typical French village with a difference; it has facilities! And life! It has two small general stores, one selling car fuel even on Sunday morning, a bank with a cash point, a pharmacy, butcher and of course the mandatory boulangerie (baker) who provides good quality bread which does not have to be soaked in soup before being ingested, and delicious patisseries. Old world and quaint St Ju has, to date, managed to survive the ravages of time and the exorable march of the modern superstore, the nearest large one with fuel being approx 12kilometres. Even at this distance it tempts some locals to buy just enough fuel at the local store to drive there.

There is no doubt that St Ju is centre of attraction for quite a large geographical area but Thursday morning is market day when the village really comes to life. The car park fills up with stalls offering local produce and regional specialities. In summer visitors staying at the two campsites either side of the river bridge a mere 750meters from the village, mingle with the locals buying provisions from the market stalls and the shops. The market closes at noon when a large percentage of people congregate at the St Ju Tabac to participate in the wonderful French custom of a leisurely lunch. There can be quite large numbers of people and the entrepreneurial owner of the tabac who also brings in weekend musical entertainment during the peak weeks, has struck a deal with the church opposite to use some of their hard paved area for tables and chairs. The number of languages being spoken is quite fascinating and many Brits not fluent in French can frequently be heard being helped by friendly Dutch and French customers.

However cosmopolitan the collection of people maybe, the village is truly French and could never be described as a tourist trap, with very few concessions to foreign demands of fast service and impatience, it is not unusual for a local farmer to park his tractor and trailer in front of the boulangerie while getting bread, and possibly having a chat with a friend.

Friendly family fun in France

Lovely accommodation. Clean and very well equipped. Beautiful views. Great walks from the front door throughout the local area. Excellent location for getting about. Chris was a font of information regarding things to do. One recommendation to definitely do is to go to Belves night market (Take plates, cutlery and glasses). We were a group booking and took 3 accommodations. The pool was clean and didn’t seem overcrowded when the other guests joined us. I would definitely recommend.

We spent two weeks at Le Presbytere in May 2017 and it couldn't have been better. The house is beautiful inside and out and the grounds very well kept. Although we were there in early summer, the weather was hot and so we made the most of the pool (very clean with cover) and the many outdoor seating areas and barbecue in the evenings. The rooms inside are well furnished (although maybe the living area needs one or two more chairs if there are four or more people staying?) and the kitchen well equipped. We took advantage of the chef that Philippe recommends in the house details on this page and we had a fantastic meal cooked for us one evening, which was a real treat. The bedrooms are beautiful and the air conditioning a real bonus when the weather is hot if you are staying upstairs. There is a washing machine and tumble drier in an outhouse which is always useful if you are there for some time. The garden is secluded withe ample parking and Philippe, whilst he came to mow the lawn and treat the pool when we were there, was charming and helpful at all times. The surrounding area is fantastic to explore with amazing scenery, castles, walks by the river, beautiful villages and a multitude of fabulous brasseries and restaurants in nearby towns and villages. Nadaillac itself has a wonderful village restaurant which you can walk to for dinner and when the weather is good, eat outside. We travelled with our dog and he was made to feel welcome everywhere we ate, which made our stay even more pleasurable. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Le Presbytere. It really is as good as the pictures make out.
