L'AUBERGE: Quaint; slightly run-down, but...
"It was in November of this year that some of the villagers of Fources became members of the “Active Resistance”, their headquarters being the café and forge belonging to Alice and Joseph Darroux.
Among those meeting at the café with Joseph and Alice were Eloi Castay, Danton Filhol, Sainte Fauste and Bacquire, the village primary school teacher. They were later joined by two more Fourcès inhabitants, Yvan Dupeyron, and Paul Pailhes."
(Alice Darroux died in Fourcès in 1997 aged 92. This small extract was taken from her "Memories of the Resistance in Fourcès" during the Second World War)
Favorite Dish: We just partook of an ice cream and coffee here so I can't comment on the quality of the other meals or offerings.
There was also a lot of beer and other varieties of liquor available.
I am sure it is THE spot to go for a drink and visit with your buddies.Related to:

Favorite thing: The best way to "get aROUND" Fourcès is to, literally, walk a ROUND!!
It is a small village and formed in a most convenient circle.
You can walk around within the centre of the village (around the village "square") to browse through the shops, or you can walk a larger circle route around the outside of the village and enjoy the beautiful back gardens and terraces of the villagers' homes.
It was such a charming and beautifully laid out village that I could easily imagine having a little place to live here quite contentedly.Related to:
