You’re going to have to get a crowbar to prise my fingers off the beautiful white stone of Chateau de Combecave. I’m not exactly looking forward to leaving. But alas, it must be so. If you’re lucky enough to be in the are around Touffailles, there are some things you must do:
This town is full of architecture that harks right back to the middle ages. Built on a cliff face, it is tier upon tier of gorgeousness. it also boasts the best boulangerie in the area, according to the manager of the chateau, Katherine. Pretty sure she’s right, as
I’ve been gorging myself stupid on all of their baked goods from the minute we set foot in Chateau de Combecave.
Katherine also alerted us to this one. In another gorgeous little town, this market is the best place for fresh abd abundant produce, apparently. Well, we weren’t disappointed – the squid and mussels from this market were super fresh and sweet, and I was practically assaulted with pieces of cheese by another vendor, from whom I bought one of the best reggianos I’ve ever tasted. Everything was cheap bar the meat and cheese. Sooooo goooooooooood.
MONTAGUE DE QUERCY MARKET
This wasn’t as picturesque as the Pressac market, but the meat was particularly good here. We got what felt like ten kilos of pork saucisson and It. Was. Incred. Everything else other than the meat was a bit lackluster, I thought, but it was well worth the trip.
Other than that, I’ve just been eating, drinking and swimming all the time. Please don’t make me leave. Seriously.
