The Pride of Daglan

Do not miss the event of the year
Fetes de la Saint Louis
from the 21rd to the 24th August.

For detail go the the Daglan Mairie website

One of the really nice aspects of our village is the pride that people take over their property and the area in which they live. It really has an excellent community spirit, where people integrate and help one another.

The supermarket next door to our home has recently been renovated. It is still the same size but the counter and shelves have been moved to accommodate more items. There are two very green signs outside which stand in front of the new plant pots. The supermarket is run by a very friendly husband and wife team, who always greet you with the welcoming “bonjour”, as you enter. This shop is the centre of the community where people come to shop and talk to the owners and other shoppers about anything that is happening in Daglan and the surrounding area.

There are one or two lovely properties in Daglan for sale, in and out of the village. So if you are looking for easy access to the countryside, sunshine, wine, good food and friendly polite people, look no further than Daglan.

  1. What a great ad for your village.
    What is the population? We just moved to Journiac, near Le Bugue and feel the same pride in our community. I recently heard there is a South African couple in Daglan. I am originally from Cape Town but recently spent 17 years in Los Angeles.

    • Great to hear from you. There are about 600 people in the village and its hamlets, a few people have told me that we have a couple who have moved from South Africa, we look forward to talking to them when we move there.
      How are you enjoying your new life in France?

      • We are loving it. Everyone is so friendly and moving at the beginning of the summer season was the best idea. There is so much to do, marché gourmands, village fêtes, something every day and night. When do you move?
