Week 21 2017


There's another jour ferie coming up... this one is L'ascension and it always falls on a Thursday because it's 10 days before Pentecost Sunday.  It marks the day that Jesus ascended to heaven following his crucifixion and resurrection, according to Christian belief. Please be aware that public services and many shops will be closed and as it's followed by a Friday, many businesses take the opportunity to 'faire le pont' so watch out for Friday too!

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

Best wishes,
