Week 37 2016

The sunny days stay with us.  This is how I remember the summers!

The beautiful Chateau Pitray hosted a lovely Portes Ouvertes this weekend.  A very elegant chateau perched on the side of the Cotes de Castillon.  Shady trees, roast pork and local wines welcomed the ramblers, the bikers and wine enthusiasts alike.
If you missed it this year, put it in the diary for next year!

Thank you to all the people who have supported this newletter over the years, there have been almost 300,000 visitors! Please continue sending your contributions and thank you for your ongoing support.

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

Best wishes,
