And if you wonder, where to buy your croissant, baguette and pastry near Bergerac, here’s our 2 favorite places :

1- Boulangerie L’Epi beaumontois (Beaumont du Perigord)

Our village has a few bakeries but our favorite has to be L’Epis beaumontois.

5 mins walk from our rental, drop in, for fresh , out of the oven croissants and some delicious “sarmentine” bread for your breakfast. The “sarmentine” is a typical local bread with sesame, easily recognisable by its shape (split ends to illustrate the vine shoots from the vineyard ).

If you get a chance, try the walnut pie, it’s the house specialty!
