Top 6 Things To Buy In The Dordogne

Top 6 Things To Buy In The Dordogne

#BookDirectDordogne#

Here's our Top 6 things to buy in the Dordogne (list non exhaustive)

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 wine grower, Christian Roche), 15 mins drive from our rental and on the way to Bergerac airport. More details: https://goo.gl/1exxJF

2- Cheese: Trappe d'Echourgnac is our favorite (more details: https://goo.gl/RWs2Wb)

3- Cepes, Truffles, Foie Gras..: our one stop shop in Bergerac: La Truffe Perigourdine Address, opening hours…: https://goo.gl/Jh92Ah)

4- Honey (directly from the beekeeper): More details: https://goo.gl/Ep65xW

5- Crafts from talented local artists: If I had to pick only 2, it would be Eric Simonin, Glass blower in Brantome (more infos https://goo.gl/A1xQ1F ) and Alexandra and Jean-François Cesar from the pottery La Salamandre in Monpazier (more infos: https://goo.gl/QBzKep)

6-Brocante (flea market): Our vacation rental, L'Ancienne Ecole, is located in the heart of the historic village of Beaumont du Périgord, only 2 mins walk from the main square where flea markets and antique fairs will take place especially during the summer months. The brocante is THE place where you can pick up a unique souvenir, some fantastic bargains and some real treasures to take home!(more details: https://goo.gl/NLpKZo)

La Gloire de Mon Père

Do you have a sweet tooth like me?
Well, if it is the case, you'll be thrilled to hear that there is a place near Bergerac where you can get your fix!

From my own experience it's quite impossible to find a Patisserie/Boulangerie (Pastry Shop/Bakery) good at both. Usually they can be brillant only at one of the 2 of them (pastries or bakery)… Well, I was proved wrong last week when we went for a walk from Creysse to Mouleydier (more infos: https://goo.gl/mKzYBm )!!!

La Gloire de Mon Père is THE place where you can get the best baguettes AND the best cakes for a special celebration or just a little treat for yourself!!!!
Bonus: you can grab a table and treat yourself to a cup of coffee with one their oh so yummy pastries before going for a walk along the river Dordogne!

Location: (on the main street) Le Bourg, Creysse
