A huge part of any holiday here in sunny SW France is savouring the wonderful food and wines of the area.
You don’t have to go far from Bordeneuve to see free-range farms filled with animals wandering about the way that nature intended and it seems that there is a different cheese for every day of the year!
There is a huge variety of fruits and vegetables grown here, all delicious and full of flavour, St Aubin is just bursting with fields of sweetcorn, sunflowers, vines and lots and lots of fruit and nut orchards.
In fact, hazelnut and plum orchards are right next door to us!
The main specialities here are duck, chicken, foie gras, prunes, oysters, mushrooms and a nice rich red to go with it,
Just about anything that is grown, made or raised here is a taste sensation.
Try some goats cheese with honey from the organic farm in our tiny village St Aubin, gorgeous!
There are vineyards everywhere, each better than the last.
Take a winetasting day out and sample the local wines, there is a list of our favourites in both L'hirondelle and Le Papillon.
Take a look at www.winefolly.com/review/wines-of-southwest-france/ , not that you need any inspiration I'm sure!
There is an array of great restaurants in and around Bordeneuve, most with set menus which range from €35-€50 per person.
However, with kids around and at least 1 person in charge of transport, it is sometimes much nicer to stay at home and have the restaurant come to you!
