The Owner Recommends

Out and About

On the subject of food and wine, almost every night of the week throughout July and August you'll find the locals partying at one of the Marches Nocturnes (food markets) that are unique to this area. These are a truly amazing experience. Take your own plates, mugs and cutlery, find yourself seats at one of the many tables, then wander round the dozens of stalls selling local produce, and be prepared to be amazed. Then join in with the music and dancing or simply sit-back and strike up a comic "Franglais" conversation with your neighbours - they'll welcome it and love you for it! Now your experiencing real French country hospitality!
