About once a year, people of this small town have what Americans would call a "garage sale" except that it's not in front of your garage. The streets are blocked and each family books a certain amount of space on the sidewalk to sell their old stuff.
It's called La Brocante.
It is amazing what you can pick up for very little money. Old things that Americans would call "antiques" are sold for very little money.
Even if you don't buy anything, it's fun to socialize and watch the crowd.
There is a beautiful Santa's workshop display at Christmas time right in the main square in front of the Church. All the children come and see how Santa and his helpers make toys.
You don't have to go in, just admire it. Around the back is a lovely parking lot and off the parking lot in the Maire are the cleanest public restrooms we've found in France. That is saying quite a bit since we usually find public restrooms to be well taken care of throughout France (with a few notable exceptions including Vezelay).
This is by the church and the fete was taking place right there that very evening. I suspect it's where you go for nightlife in town. Certainly was the day we were there!
Yes, even in this small town, the local grocery store has a special parking space for pregnant women. I think it's a great idea!
The picture was taken at the new "Shoppi" grocery store.
dangerous animals :-)
Unique Suggestions: Everyday, we would walk to the boulangerie to get our bread (notice the French baguette in my husband's bag) and my husband would pet this seemingly friendly horse.
About 2 weeks later, we noticed a sign by the field that said " Ne pas me caresser. Je mords"
"Don't caress me. I bite "
