The Owner Recommends

Day Markets

Watch sleepy villages spring to life one day a week as local farmers crowd into town, bringing the bounty of the season-sweet fraise du bois (wild strawberries) one week, juicy just-picked peaches another. Sample tangy fresh brebis (goat cheese), tiny Nicoise olive, plump chewy prunes...
Great towns close by for day markets.
Eymet in particular is beautiful town to visit for a walk around and offers fabulous restaurants.

Night Markets or 'Marché Gourmands'

Enjoy an evening (or two or three!) al fresco with local producers providing cooked meals, market style.
