When we go to France I think that we hit the tarmac at a running speed and stay at that speed throughout our stay. The reason for this is that we have so much to do in so little a time:- the house renovation, visiting friends, browsing markets, a visit to a cave, festivals etc, and this time The Tour de France too… it is nice to just relax and take time out to look at our very picturesque village, so that is what we did on a very hot day, 36C on our recent visit.

All of the hats in this shop are hand made, Paul purchased a panama hat.

Hats off

Hats off to the fabricant de chapeau

This picture was taken from the fountain looking towards the new artist studio (the house on the left of the picture). I particularly love the artists landscape paintings of the area.

Gorgeous smells greet us most mornings from the Boulangerie/Patisserie next door. Too tempting to resist but resist we must, we are all on a diet.



Just a few minute walk from our home is this truly interesting jewellery shop. All hand made with different stones to a very high standard, it also sells bags, clothes and dolls.

If you fancy something original why not try backpacking with a couple of donkeys to carry your packs!

  1. Despite living in the Dordogne for a year, I never made it to Daglan – what a cute village! Lovely photos! I wonder if the donkeys are on a pilgrimage…

  2. Love your blog. I was wondering if I could impose on you to ask a few questions. I left a comment on a previous blog. Not sure if you get comments in your email on previous posts. Anyway, to reply to me you can find my email address on my blog. I couldn’t find an email address for you.

    I have enjoyed reading all your back posts and will be visiting the Dordogne in early September. We will be staying in Montpazier for three days. Have you read the book, Time Line by Michael Crichton? It is why we became interested in the Dordogne area. The book is about traveling back in time to 14th century France.
