Winter greets you with crisp clear days and snowy nights...a perfect excuse for snuggling in front of a blazing fire and roasting chestnuts. Christmas in the Dordogne is a magical sight. Monpazier is beautifully decorated with traditional ornaments and fairylights, and every week in December there's a special Christmas market to explore somewhere nearby. All the theatre of the special truffle market "Truffes en Bastide" comes to Monpazier at Christmas, with a prize for the largest truffle, followed by a tasting session.  And Monpazier is the perfect setting for a romantic Valentine's Day escape. Winter showcases the classic icons of Dordogne cuisine: fresh foie gras, black truffles, chestnuts, hearty cassoulets & soupes.
