Autumn in the Dordogne

A French immersion course is a brilliant way to learn the language. My week at Le Bourdil Blanc in October combined French lessons in the morning and trips to wonderful sites in the Dordogne Valley in the afternoon. Vaut la visite!

French markets in the Dordogne

I’ve just come back from a week’s holiday in the Dordogne and as ever I was overwhelmed by the quality and variety of everyday foodstuffs, seasonal produce and of course some more luxury gourmet goodies, in the local markets there.
