Marchés de Noël - La Celle Guenand

At last, a nice day for it!

The Christmas market at the chateau  at La Celle Guenand on Saturday was the first of these occasions this festive season where we have not had to endure a rather dismal day weather wise. The château was resplendent in the winter sunshine  - what a change from the last couple of day

The English owners of the chateau do a great job of hosting events here, fully utilising all the resources at their disposal. We were here in September on Patrimoine day when we had lunch in the troglodyte caves behind the chateau, today they were used to host the local artisan's stalls in a unique setting. 
I was impressed by the wood-turner working away on his mobile wood lathe producing walnut cracking bowls.

  1. The bowls work superbly! We bought one at Huilerie Lepine's open day... it makes getting good walnut halves a doddle... Pauline now has to crack them apart further for banana date cake.
