charming and oh so sleepy...


Yesterday we spent most of the day in the charming village of Saint Alvere, a charming and sleepy village, around 40 minutes drive from where we live.

This cafe proved to be a lovely spot for a cup of coffee....


 In the centre of the village were these lovely plants, complete with fabulous name tags....


I am not a huge fan of the circus as they come complete with animals in cages but I love the advertising....


Saint Alvere has an air of prosperity and this maybe due to the fact that the village is famous for it's truffle market, truffles are like gold and fetch amazing prices as they are sort after around the world.


It had a fabulous sleepy air and there was not a lot of tourists or foreigners, quite a contrast to where we live.


I could not resist taking a photo of this fabulous and very clean 2CV.

très bonne semaine à tous, Leeann x

  2. The last time we were in Saint Alvere was for the truffle market. It was dead of winter and the roads were icy and we were grateful there was a stall outside selling hot coffee for the crowd waiting for the doors to open. Then the aroma of truffles.....
