Welcome to Champ de Maradène, our website dedicated to sharing and hosting our photographs with our family and friends. But that’s not all—this site serves as an invaluable aide-mémoire for us as we navigate through life’s “senior moments.” You know those times when questions like “Do you remember when…,” “Where were we when…,” or “What year did…” pop up? We’ve got the answers.

Explore our site and discover a map of our local area, complete with a pinpoint of our house to ensure you never lose your way while driving here. We’ve also got a handy local weather report to keep you informed.

For all you outdoor enthusiasts, head over to the Walks page where you’ll find a link to Openrunner, our go-to platform for planning and sharing routes. Whether it’s walking or cycling, there’s something for you. You can even print routes or download GPX files for your handheld GPS or mobile phone app, allowing you to enjoy scenic walks or rides in our area or beyond.

On the right-hand column of this page, you’ll find links to simple websites I’ve created for friends. Are you searching for a cozy B&B or a charming gîte in the beautiful Dordogne? Look no further than Les Jonquilles—an attractive modern stone house nestled in a tranquil rural location, just a short15-minute walk on way-marked footpaths to the enchanting town of Domme, one of the Dordogne’s most breathtaking villages. Pam and Glyn, our friends, manage this lovely place.

Don’t miss out on CazalRando, our local walking club where I serve as the webmaster. Explore the site to learn about our past and future activities, check out the calendar of walks for the current period, access maps and downloadable GPS files of our routes, and immerse yourself in the captivating photos shared by our members. Another noteworthy mention is L’Ensemble Vocal Divona, a local choir that some of our friends are part of— a joy to experience.

Last but certainly not least, let me share a source of immense pride for me. Intellect is an independent academic publisher that I helped establish in the mid-1980s, and I currently serve as its managing director.

We value your feedback and suggestions, so please don’t hesitate to let us know if there’s anything else you’d like to see included on this site.
