Fete de la Fraise-Beaulieu sur Dordogne

Yesterday was the annual strawberry fair in Beaulieu sur Dordogne, a beautiful town on a wide bend of the Dordogne just half an hour from us.

The whole town had been decorated with strawberry bunting and everywhere you looked there were strawberries, the scent of them as we walked down the main road was delicious.

As well as strawberry sellers there was a market showcasing regional producers and all the restaurants had taken up the strawberry theme with special menus.

There was also a very large strawberry tart under construction, to be cut and distributed later in the day. We couldn't wait that long and purchased from a bakery, it didn't last long enough to photograph!

  1. I love these local seasonal festivals. This is a new one on me.

  2. I’m really looking forward to the mushroom fete that we have in the village in October, but I suspect there will be a few more fruit and veg ones before that.
