During 2 days (Friday 31 mai and saturday 1st of June 2019), The Bergerac & Duras Winemakers welcome you at the Bergerac Wine Fest VINETA, ready to share their passion and meet the wine lovers in the quest to find a really great wine!
Since the Bergerac Old Town part is getting a facelift (House of Wines, Harbour…) the Wine Fest will take place on the other side of the river, in the Madeleine area, Place Barbacane.
Summer in the Dordogne is always busy and there are always plenty of things to see and do !
One of our favorite is the Summer Night Market or Foodie Market (“Marche Gourmand”). If you’re in the area, it’s the best way to spend a brillant evening feasting on local food, freshly cooked in front of you and dance to your heart’s content.
It’s a very popular event and it’s no wonder it’s one of the highlight of our village, Beaumont du Périgord (Dordogne, SW of France) !
Every monday at 6.30pm, simply walk up the street from our vacation rental home to the market square, the beating heart of our village, 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.
The Riding School CEPB is also present at the square to delight little ones with its pony rides! It’s a fun way to discover the cobbled streets of our village!
