Food glorious food in South-West France

Rich confit de canard, the famous paté de foie gras, a hearty cassoulet, tangy Roquefort cheese, Arcachon oysters and sweet plums in Armagnac are just a few of the reasons why the South West is a foodies’ paradise.

Markets are piled high with a mouth-watering array of local delicacies and one of the best, takes place in the film-set like medieval town of Sarlat, which is just 3 miles from our fine 18th century farmhouse, Le Bournaguet.

The town of Sarlat has remained very much untouched and as such is considered one of the best representations of 14th century France. The towns market is held every Wednesday and Saturday (at time of article) and has apparently been famous since the middle ages, tantilising the taste buds and charming lovers of gastronomy.
