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)

What's Your Best Day of the Week to Go Grocery Shopping?

What's Your Best Day of the Week to Go Grocery Shopping?

My favorite one has to be on Thursday, right after an early lunch. Shopping list on one hand and trolley on the other, I find the stores very quiet, meaning no queues at the till!

What's yours? Please do share.

In Beaumont, there is a supermarket, right outside our village, 5 mins drive from our rental, where you can do your weekly shopping. More details: https://goo.gl/FRRrpo
