On a very cold morning Paul and I decided to visit the Sarlat Village de Noël, well to be honest it was my idea, I just could not wait to see the forty chalets brimming with Christmas delights.
Arts and crafts from all over France descend on Sarlat this time of year selling everything that a person would need for the Christmas season. Lovers of gastronomy are not forgotten with gourmet products to eat on the spot or to take away.
If you would like something warming there are a few taverns selling hot mulled wine and chestnuts. Plus artisan beer, macaroons, and candies. There is also a large open air skating rink and numerous entertainments for the children.

A London black cab and on the right is Santa’s Grotto and elf workshop.
Union Flags are everywhere as you walk along the red carpet.
Pretzels or candy anyone?

One way to attract the attention of British visitors to their lovely honey chalet.
Getting ready for the ice skaters.
Sarlat Village de Noël is open until the end of December.
Part Two will be in a few days time which will focus onto the main street and the Medieval Quarter of Sarlat.
