Best Authentic Homemade Ice Cream Tested In Brantome

Best Authentic Homemade Ice Cream Tested In Brantome

If you're in Brantome during a hot summer day, don't forget to pay a visit to the best homemade ice cream place to die for: "Le Glacier de Brantome" (on the main road a couple of doors before the talented glass blower: Eric Simonin).

The shop is a natural cave in a cliff wall.
A large range of colours, tastes and flavours, (more than 50 I believe) many unusual like violet and rose for example….But if ice cream is not your thing, you can also get other treats like crepes, waffles…

We found this place by accident one day and since then, this is our go to place when we get an ice cream craving!

Casual, very friendly, pop in, you won't regret it!

Amazing Glass Blower In Brantome: Eric SIMONIN

Amazing Glass Blower In Brantome: Eric SIMONIN

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.

If you want to gaze at its artistic gems, here's his website where you can also purchase his creations.
