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.

We couldn't have made a better choice. Linda and George's (and Roosevelt's!) hospitality was second to none - they were integral to ensuring our stay was as enjoyable as possible. As we're keen bikers, the weather during the week was perfect - sunny and around 24 degrees and we managed to clock up over 160km during the course of our holiday. The bike rides themselves were fantastic thanks to George who plotted the routes using his local knowledge of the area. We can particularly recommend the ride which took us past a number of beautiful chateaus. The pool and jacuzzi were perfect for unwinding after a long day on the bikes - and the heated pool is a real luxury in mid September! Another highlight of the week was Dmitri, the local chef who came to cook for us one evening. We both agree that it was the best meal we've ever had (and that's including Michelin starred restaurants!) - my soufflé and scallop starter was delicious, and the apple tart dessert simply divine! Dmitri is a must for anyone staying at the Butterfly Cottage - you won't regret it! We can't wait to return in the near future. Sophie & Doug

A car is a necessity as there is no transit in the village, and you will want to tour the nearby villages of Carennac and Rocamadour. Madame Diane is a gracious host.

Comfortable beds and great showers. Great place for relaxing. Kitchen is small but has all you need. Friendly caretaker. Would benefit from a hairdryer and a fan for hot weather. Highly recommend.
