6 Things Your Boss Expects You To Bring Back From Your Holiday In The Dordogne Valley

6 Things Your Boss Expects You To Bring Back From Your Holiday In The Dordogne Valley

Here’s our Top 6 things to buy in the Dordogne!

1- WINE:

We work in partnership with local vineyards for wine tasting tours by taxi.
But if you don’t wish to spend a couple of hours in a vineyard, you can buy directly from a shop/vineyard.
Our favorite one is : The Domaine de L’Ancienne Cure (shop & vineyard run by organic winegrower, Christian Roche), 15 mins drive from our rental and on the way to Bergerac airport. More details: https://goo.gl/dXtPdU

2- CHEESE: Trappe d’Echourgnac

This is one of my all time favorite cheese and we call it here, in our house, “Nuns Cheese”…. why???? Simply because it’s been produced by nuns since 1868  at the Abbaye Notre-Dame de Bonne Espérance (our Lady of Good Hope), near Double in Dordogne.
La Trappe d’Echourgnac is made from pasteurized cow’s milk. The Abbey produces two versions of the cheese; a traditional recipe based on Port Salut and a newer version of the same cheese but washed with walnut liqueur (the exterior rind is a dark, rich brown).
It’s a mild cheese with a nutty flavour so it will appeals to a lot of people.

You can purchase them from the Abbey shop or in any good local supermarkets.

5- CRAFTS FROM TALENTED LOCAL ARTISTS:

If I had to pick only 2, it would be:

Eric Simonin, Glass blower in Brantome

Eric Simonin chose Brantome, the “Venise du Perigord”, to set up his workshop. A true artist, he creates amazing and unique glass art sculptures inspired from Mother Nature: jellyfish, anemone, mushrooms, stones… and turns them into lamps, plates, jewellery and even chrismas balls. They are all breathtaking and no wonder they were in the nationalTV a few times.

Alexandra and Jean-François Cesar from the pottery shop “La Salamandre” in Monpazier.

They make the most exquisite ceramic, stoneware and porcelain ware you’ve ever seen and at a reasanable price!
