Along the river :
Originally, Beaulieu-sur-Dordogne was a small fishing village nestling in a meander of the Dordogne. Today, it's a dynamic village full of charm.
In the heart of the Dordogne Valley, Beaulieu lives to the rhythm of its river. With its picturesque architectural heritage, water sports and gastronomy, there's something for everyone. Beaulieu is waiting for you!
A medieval town built on the right bank of the Dordogne, Beaulieu has been nicknamed the "Limousin Riviera" thanks to its mild climate, perfect for growing strawberries. Beaulieu's main attraction is its remarkable abbey church of Saint-Pierre, whose portal is a masterpiece of Romanesque art.
Beaulieu is also home to the River Dordogne and its gabares, which used to set the pace of life in the valley. Gabares are large flat-bottomed boats that were used to transport goods to Bordeaux before the arrival of the railway. You can take one for a spin and learn more about their history.
Don't miss: the 2nd Sunday in May is the Gariguette Festival, a local speciality. On the programme: farmers' market, writers' fair, gabare rides and giant strawberry tart.
