Will it snow this Christmas – what a wonderful thought!! The fresh white crispness of snow changes our whole landscape.  Should you wish to enjoy a white Christmas in the Dordogne Valley – this year may be the year!

Beautiful garlands, Fir trees dressed in the brightest colours will be a contrast to the perfect scene outside – we can only wish…for a fresh clean look that snow brings to any area.

In the meantime – we are all preparing for those cold days that draw us all to a lovely fire, superb roasted chestnuts, gorgeous stews such as Boeuf a’ la Bourguignonne and Pot-au-Feu (A sumptuous family orientated type meal made with Pork, Chicken, Sausage and vegetables). It is so amazing how every thing changes after the first fall of snow.

Enjoy sitting by the fire with your loved one, on a chilly night
