One of the questions we are asked time & time again is  ...where is the nearest bakery?

This is of course the epitomy of all things French and you can almost smell the freshly baked croissants wafting through the images of the early morning rays... we are lucky to have nearly everything close at hand...

... but you will need a car - the small price to pay for living in this wonderful area is that apart from strolling through the countryside, there isn't much within walking distance.
