Reasons for trip

If you are considering moving to France or buying your very own gite or cottage then this is the place to visit. There is more Information on buying a French property than you can swallow in one bite, so my advice would be to chew slowly! I visited with a friend, neither of us were in the market for a Chateaux, so we stuck firmly to the food and drink stalls. My favourite show at the Flavour of France theatre was “Delicious cakes and Glamorous bakes” which was hosted by famous chef Eric Lanlard. There was plenty of other, non food related entertainment too, with shows such as “To B&B or not to B&B? How to start a chambres d’hotes in France and keep your sanity. There are wonderful, authentic food stalls to buy from and you can sit and your picnic, all purchased from the vendors at the show. Bread, cheese, pate and wine were all on offer, you can graze whilst being serenaded by Edith Piaf (well, a close imitation). There are holiday reps promoting the different regions of France, handy if you are thinking of planning a trip. The day opens and closes with The France Show can can dancers which was a very lively end to the day. We enjoyed a free wine tasting and the tickets for paid ones were only £6 which seemed good value. You can generally find free or discounted tickets on the internet. I would recommend this day out for foodies and Francophiles of any age!
