This store is on the same street as Terres et Beauté. In it, they sell all kinds of local products: from oils, vinaigrettes to cakes and liqueurs, good souvenirs for those who love to cook -or eat! The store also has a display case with fresh cheeses. You'll also find dried sausages and various crispy snacks. Pair with a nice wine et voilà! You have a delicious cocktail plate for tonight at the tent.
This store can be found right next to Terres et Beauté. It is a coffee and tea specialty store. Emilie and I come here almost every week in winter to buy fresh coffee for home. When you enter, you are welcomed by delicious smells of freshly roasted coffee, spicy tea and chocolate. In this store they also sell beautiful tableware, coffee makers and other coffee and tea accessories. Are you or do you know a coffee and/or tea lover? Then you can find the address here .
Belle et Chic
Rosalie passed this store a hundred times before stepping inside once. And it was incredibly successful! From the outside, you don't expect to find such a beautiful collection of clothes and shoes. Clothing from major brands, such as Guess, for example, are on sale here. The store is not so active online, but can be found via google maps!
Quercy Saveurs Chai Clément
You pass this store on the way to the supermarkets in Montayral. This specialty store belongs to a young entrepreneur who is always very helpful. Looking for a locally produced gin? He has it and is happy to tell you about it! You can also find a large assortment of French-produced wines and whiskeys here. Make it complete with a pâté or terrines for on toast. A box of homemade Leonidas chocolates should of course not be missing from your visit... yummy! Want to know more? Check out the website!
Rond Point des Marques
This boutique is also within walking distance of the E' Leclerc. Would you like a clothing store for men and women with well-known brands? Like Only, Levi's, Vero Moda and Vila? Then you have come to the right place. This store has a large children's and baby department. So you can come here with the whole family!
L'Instant d'O is a concept store in Fumel. The owner, Olivia, makes a combination of jewelry, clothing and home decor. You can see from the decor that she sets up her store with care. The clothes on the racks are just that little bit different and really give the ‘haute couture’ feeling of the fashionistas in Paris. The collection of bags is magnifique! The scented candles, blankets, pillows, dinnerware and much more are also nice. This boutique does not have a website, but can be found on Instagram.
These are the 7 stores that we recommend in the area of Le Clos Bouyssac. They are handy when you have to do some shopping anyway or when you want to get out of the house, but don't want to drive far. Our tip is to check the opening hours on Google before you go! For example, there is the lunch break in France; from 12:00 to 14:00. Almost all stores are closed then during the lunch break and also on Sundays. So be sure to always check! That way you won't be standing in front of a closed door.
We hope this blog post makes you want to explore the neighborhood and be happily surprised by our selection of stores! Want to know more about shopping in the area?
