Yum yum!

Restaurants

As regards good restaurants you'll be spoilt with choice. Honestly, it is impossible to list them all. Brantôme and Périgueux being larger cities, you'll find more restaurants and a better chance to find one that fits your tastes and budget. Nevertheless, here are a few adresses we particularly appreciate.

Le Temps des Mets

If you go to the splendid village of Saint-Jean de Côle, of al the good restaurants there, we do have a preference for Le temps des mets.
1 place du vieux pont, le bourg, 24800 Saint-Jean-de-Côle - 09 67 78 25 72. Low season: open friday and saturday evenings. High season: open every day for lunch and diner except sunday evening.

The markets

Follow the link to have the complete listing of all markets, but we strongly recommend:

  • Brantôme market on Fridays because a market in such a beautiful village can only be blissfull. When the sun is getting warmer as the year progresses the market gets bigger and happens twice a week: Tuesday becomes a market day for local producers from mid-june to mid-september.
  • Piégut-Pluviers: the region's biggest market that can even help people suffering from 'crowded places withdrawal'. Thus, loads of different stalls that give plenty of opportunities to find exactly what you are looking for... especially when you're not looking for anything.
  • In contrast there are hardly any tourists in Nontron on Saturday mornings. Only natives who are quite nice actually! If you go there, don't forget to pay a visit to the current art exhibition at the Château de Nontron. In July and August, there's also a festive market from 6pm on thursdays.
