When in France, we spent our last day hanging out with Gabrielle's family at a place called Le Bournat (take note: the site has music), which, is best described as part vintage amusement park and part historic village--kind of a French version of Sturbridge Village, but with rides. If you ever visit the Dordogne with your family, it's a great place to spend an afternoon with children. During the touristy months of July and August, they even offer live music, which was excellent on a prior visit. Also, you can watch fresh walnut oil being made and organic flour being ground at any time of year.
A couple of years ago we visited Le Bournat on our first visit to this part of France--it was a rainy day and we ended up having the place to ourselves (see images here). It was during this trip that we put in an offer on La Maisonnette. Who knew what would all turn into? Point proven: life is totally and completely unpredictable!
p.s. I apologize for including so many photos--I couldn't stop at just a few--it's such a cool place!
