Family friendly hidden gem: Lalinde Canal

This is it! We decided to start exploring a bit more around our village (Beaumont du Périgord, Dordogne, FRANCE). And what better way than cycling, the whole family can enjoy it!

Lalinde Canal, built between 1838 and 1843, was designed to improve navigation from the village of Mauzac to Tuilières. The arrival of railway saw the decline of river transport and the canal become obsolete but it is gradually regaining importance and is now especially prized as beautiful place for walking and fishing.

So come along and enjoy watching pike, trout, perch swimming or indeed sunbathing... and discover the beauty of this peaceful place away from the traffic, hustle and bustle free of charge.

Practical info:
Lalinde Canal, 15mins drive from L'Ancienne Ecole, our self catering holiday accomodation in the fortified village of Beaumont du Périgord.
Distance between Tuilières and Lalinde: 9kms.

You can rent a bike from our reliable partner Bike Direct and they 'll be happy to drop it off at our rental hassle free.
