La Forge Ste Croix de Beaumont

Ste Croix de Beaumont, Dordogne

Cottages with pretty courtyard for couples or friends. Canoeing on the Dordogne, cycling, truffle hunting and bastide towns to explore


2 places


Sleeping from 2 – 4


It’s a peaceful rural setting for these lovely old stone cottages, near the main house La Forge and with private woods pretty with wildflowers in the spring. Back in the 18th century, it would have been a whole lot noisier, when the foundry here was busy making cannonballs. Through an old gateway is a large courtyard, with chapel ruins as well as the beautifully restored outbuildings and spaces for guests to eat outside.  The ‘Maison du Curé’, the old chaplain’s residence with a little balcony terrace, is just right for a couple. Four friends will fit nicely into ‘Compostella’, sharing one bathroom but with an immense living and kitchen space. Big-hearted owners Rosie and John, and their friendly dog, live in the main house. Rosie is happy to take guests on a tour of local towns (attractive Beaumont en Périgord is closest, three miles away), organise trips to hunt truffles or mushrooms, or to canoe on the Dordogne beneath hilltop villages and châteaux. There’s a rich artistic community within reach too, with jewellery makers and painters’ studios to visit.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Rosie Gray

  • There are wonderful walks in the woods on our 30 acres which lead to an ancient medieval village. Why not continue on to the waterfall for some summer swimming too?
  • Our private fishing rights enable guests to fish and trap River lobsters along the banks of the Couze River.
  • Monpazier and Beaumont are Bastide towns within 7 minutes drive and offer great markets for produce, organic vegetables and fruits. Enjoy fabulous coffee and croissants and meet the locals in the square under shady umbrellas.
  • Visit the Abbaye in Cadouin and Beaumont; adjacent to two very fine restaurants.
  • Enjoy the wine trail to Château Monbazillac. Château Jaubertie is offered to guests in a private car with lunch at Château Les Merles.
  • Vegetables and herbs grow in the very large garden by the Canal which is laden with iris and lillies in Spring. From the entrance drive there are apple, walnut and plum trees which date back to the early days of life at La Forge.
