During the months of July and August the villages in the area host their “Marches Nocturnes”, which are a brilliant way of experiencing the local produce and culture of the region. What could be better on hot Summer nights than food, wine, music, dance and most of all excellent company.
During the evening markets tables are set up around a central square or along the main road of the villages and vendors sell everything you need for a good meal, including the excellent wine of the region. There is usually live music or a DJ and dancing well into the evening. Which is what we did in St Cyprien and St Pompon.
Not even a rain shower stopped the revelry in St Cyprien.
Sherry and Angus ready for their dinner
Brilliant musicians topped the evening.
Such a delicious choice of food.
Wow, we had to try a selection of the scrumptious desserts above.
This gentleman danced around the bottles, sang, played an instrument of four harmonica’s, plus castanets.
You meet such a lot of interesting people. The couple at the end of our table were on holiday from the North of France. We were telling them about the places of interest in the area, including Daglan of course.
Angus and I had to get up and dance YMCA, great fun.
Boogie Night for Sherry and I. We had such a good time that we are all going to St Pompon again this Saturday… see you there.
You need to arrive early for a good seat and remember to take your own cutlery.
It is that time of year again, four nights of no sleep but boy do we have fun.
