One of the highlight of Beaumont du Périgord, our village (Dordogne, SW of France) during the summer, is its night market.
Every monday at 6.30pm, simply walk up the street from our manor house to the market square to mingle with the locals and share an fantastic evening. Grab one of the tables which are set up and walk around the market stalls to buy directly from the local producers whatever you fancy for supper. Market traders provide everything from wine, starters, cooked meals (Lamb kebabs, duck sausages, mussels, black pudding, lamb chops.simple sausages or steaks, with chips naturally..). and deserts (yummy freshly picked strawberries….)and each supply the appropriate plastic cups or cutlery. There is something for all tastes. So you can choose your meal and take it back to the table and enjoy dining under the stars, al frescoe with music by a local band or DJ. It's a fun and amazing experience for all ages so don't be shy, come along and dance all night long with us!

Yes, no doubt, despite mild temperatures a couple of days ago and confused daffodil shoots popping out from the ground… this morning, we're experiencing some true wintery weather with temperatures between -3°c et -7°c! And guess what… we might get some snow, too!!! … but I doubt very much, it is going to be as bad as in feb 1956 when Bergerac was under 60cm of snow!!!
