DOMAINE DE LA SALAMANDRE
Bed & Breakfast and lodges
in a peaceful and ecology-oriented place
The Domaine de la Salamandre is located 35 minutes away from Périgueux in Dordogne, in a charming village named Auriac-du-Périgord. Our ecology-oriented estate fully respects our nature, environment and people. We aim to reach a total independence towards water, energy and waste recycling.
We all share the idea that we need to pass on to the future generations values that are not carried by the consumer society and that benefits a natural living area.
We would be extremely pleased to welcome you here, share with you our work and ideas and hopefully help you to spend a relaxing and interesting stay. The Périgord is a region that deserves to be explored!
See you soon,
Véronique et Vincent

AN ECOVILLAGE IN THE MAKING
The Domaine of the Salamandre is in full expansion and we are currently developing an ecovillage.
Le Domaine de la Salamandre wishes to give a more suitable place to human in harmony with his environment. In this purpose, the ecovillage will welcome about 10 households close to nature, where the inhabitants will share the same values of respect and support.
This village will aim to be completely self-sufficient in energy, food, water and waste recycle. The ecovillage homes will be passive houses and environmental-friendly.
Used energies will be produced on site.
Rainwater will be collected, filtered and stored.
Wastes will be reduced at their minimum.
Households will be comfortable and welcome persons with reduced mobility.
If this ecovillage sounds interesting to you, if you share the same values or if you have any question, please reach out!
