La Closerie means a little farm or enclosure and at our little farm in La Beyne you will find yourself enclosed in a corner of paradise. Set in tranquil surroundings there are 13 hectares (32 acres) of pasture, woodlands and walking trails for you to explore during your stay. If you wish to venture further afield we are in the heart of the Dordogne between Bergerac and Sarlat and many attractions are within easy reach.
Our family are transforming the potential of this property into a sustainable, Permaculture small holding and we invite our visitors to make the most of our home grown, organic produce in our restaurant. Our chef, Vincent Bonnin, is renowned for his Mediterranean style cooking, using only the best seasonal produce.
We cater for a wide variety of interests and look forward to meeting you and sharing the blessings of this land with others – please explore all we have to offer throughout our site.

Farm designed by
We have a variety of fruit and nut trees, including an abundance of figs and walnuts and we plan to extend the orchard into a Food Forest system.
In the vegetable garden we use the ‘No Dig’ system to preserve soil health and have a solar tunnel to extend our growing season.
We intend to surround ourselves with allies in the garden. Our hens for eggs, our horses for organic fertilizer, bees for pollination and honey ...
On our farm in Devon, England we had sheep, chickens and pigs and we plan to raise animals here too.
The orchard also has hidden treasure in the form of truffles!
There are also plenty of wild creatures who we share this land with - if you are quiet enough you may meet deer, foxes, badgers, owls, hoopoe’s, golden orioles, buzzards, fritillaries and more. And if you are observant you will encounter dozens of varieties of orchids plus other fascinating and beautiful wild plants.
