Jumilhac le Grand - overlooked by a magnificent chateau

Some rural French villages are quite unassuming, while others have outstanding historic features. Jumilhac le Grand is definitely one of the latter. Dominated by its superb chateau, known as "The Black Pearl of the Green Perigord", Jumilhac le Grand packs a lot of charm into a small space in the Perigord National Park. The village was once a notable centre for gold, and small scale panning can still be seen today along the river.

All the essentials of life are found in Jumilhac

With only around 1,400 residents, you might expect Jumilhac le Grand to have few amenities. But, you'd be wrong. Within the village you can find not only the beautiful chateau, but also a very handy clutch of small shops and local services. In fact, you can find pretty much anything you need for everyday life without having to take your car and travel to a larger town. Although you might want to pop along the road to nearby St Yrieix la Perche to find the big supermarkets. But, as Jumilhac offers a baker, a butcher, a mini supermarket, a hairdresser, a pharmacy, a bank, a café, bars and restaurants, you won't have to leave the village very often! It isn't only shops and services that can be accessible for villagers and holidaymakers either. Just a few miles up the road is a great outdoor swimming pool, while other activities include a gym that offers various classes and even paintball!
