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.

I was just amazed that we were temporarily living in a building with such history. The building was built around 1525 and even with all the mod cons still retains it's original structure and character. It is also very comfortable, romantic and very centrally located. Emmanuel the owner met us on arrival in Sarlat and took us to the apartment. He was incredibly hospitable and talked us through how everything worked. He bought us a nice bottle of red and put it in the apartment for our arrival. I highly recommend this as a place to stay. Thanks Emmanuel for making us feel so welcome!

Its relatively remote location might not appeal to all, but we loved it. As advertised, the home adjoins the castle wall, in the very center of the hill-top village, next to the Mairie (townhall) and a short distance from the church. There is a bakery and a small grocery store a short walk down the hill. The home is very spacious, well maintained and comfortable. It is tastefully and very completely furnished, combining antique pieces with very comfortable chairs, sofas, and beds. There is a large kitchen with a beautiful fireplace, but also an American-sized refrigerator, dishwasher, and stove. The bathrooms are nice. The terrace allows for outside dining; there one can enjoy the jacuzzi while gazing upon the castle walls and the beautiful countryside. The owner and manager both provided exemplary customer service. Over the past several years, we have stayed at numerous VRBO/Homeaway properties in Europe and elsewhere. We agree that this is our favorite!
