Paul and I travelled to Sarlat last Saturday for the Village de Noel. The weather was -2C with freezing fog but it was well worth the visit for the hot mulled wine alone!
Nearly fifty chalets set in the main car park of the medieval town; featuring the arts and crafts of the Perigord Noir. Everything from macaroons, gingerbread men, clothes, toys to Christmas decorations was on sale from the artisans that made them. Plus a large skating rink for the young and not so young to enjoy.
The Village De Noël opened on the 5th December to the 31st December.
The car park trees got the make over under the canopy of lights.
Macaroon stall, yum.
There are two taverns, one at the entrance to the village and one in the centre, selling the most delicious hot mulled wine, snacks or hot roast chestnuts.
It was interesting watching the various artisans at work.
This lady was crocheting a hat when we walked by.
Wooden puppets in a variety of sizes.
