I jus returned from Monpazier, and stayed again with Ray & Jacinta, as my last visit was so pleasant. Everything is still just as good, except it's now winter and the log fire was roaring. Incredibly gracious, thoughtful hosts create a lovely easy atmosphere in their home. Although most of rural France hibernates for the winter, I found the area to be really beautiful, the scenery is gorgeous at this time. Nearby Villereal market was still buzzing on Saturday morning (can't go past Monsieur Blanchard's famous patisserie - you feel like you've gone straight to gourmet heaven!) and we had a lovely meal at Les Remparts in Castillones.
