Week 38 2016


Castillon is still sporting the Battle colours and was full of life on Monday.  Produce in all shapes and sizes.  There's not many places you can buy rabbit as fresh as this!
As local Farmer's markets go, I think Castillon's carries the traditions well.

Talking of Traditions, this weekend is the Journees and Nuit du Patrimoine (Heritage days and nights) where monuments throughout France are open to the public for free, and there is always a magnificent music and firework show in St Emilion.  Make your way to the centre of the village and you will have a treat of a free display starting at around 22h.

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

Best wishes,

Week 38
