Week 15 2016


After the excitement of the fun fair last weekend in Castillon, this week it was back to the traditional farmer’s market.   Where else would you go to get your livestock? Chickens or rabbits anyone?
From one kind of market, to another… this weekend brings the return of the big twice yearly Brocante in Rauzan.  Go along, have a rummage, find that hidden antique! One person’s trash is another person’s treasure.

Whatever you do this week, have a great week in the Gironde and Dordogne regions.

Best wishes,

And finally…

The parking police are out in force in Castillon.  Beware and have your parking disk prominently displayed in your windscreen if you park in a blue zone.  Disks are available from the shops or the Mairie and cost €1. Then you have free parking up to one and a half hours in the blue parking bays.  The disks work anywhere in France where they have the blue lines.
