Christmas in Sarlat (Window Shopping)


Winter festivals are always quiet affairs in Medieval towns - apparently.  Though it's definitely Christmas.


Window shopping is always a treat. As with every year, the Chocolatiers take first prize.


Chocolate, Orange and Cinnamom make their way into everything. Perfect.


Warm flavours as the dusk falls. Another frost tonight.











Each year the Ville adopts a theme. This Christmas has a Chinese flavour with Dragons and lanterns.




Merry Christmas!

    1. Hi Sweetbay. The chocolate shops always make exceptional windows with exceptional chocolate creations (priced, ahem, accordingly)

  4. My goodness your shops are so much classier and more tempting than ours. Fortunately I'm not a chocoholic, but I can imagine the effect. Thanks for the tour!

    1. Thanks Ailsa. That's a lot of eating. Aside from chocolate, this is duck confit and potatoes in goose fat territory. All good rib sticking stuff.

    1. Thanks, though in all honesty I could handle some Aussie Summer weather now. Winter Solstice for us today.

  8. Chocolate, orange and cinnamon - mmmmmmm :) Oh what style and elegance Rob - never mind shopping - I would just be happy to look! For some reason since the sad demise of Google Reader I'm trying out bloglovin' which for some reason does not alert me to your new posts :(

    1. I could easily blow a small fortune on the chocolate - I have to say it's priced accordingly!
