Simply wonderful

Limoges is an easy 45 minute drive from our house in Argenton-sur-Creuse, France. (Unfortunately there is no direct train route, and would necessitate travelling in the opposite direction to Chateauroux to make the connection, making it impractical for a day trip.)

We will always remember Limoges for its beautiful town hall (Hôtel de Ville) and gorgeous fountain…

Strolling around the historic district and the Cathedral of Limoges (Cathédrale Saint-Étienne de Limoges)…

and the lovely bistro we stumbled upon (Bistrot du Boucher – one of a chain, we later discovered, scattered all over France) where I had arguably the best dessert ever, deceptive in its simplicity…

I chose the Trilogie

Simply wonderful dessert

My mouth waters with the memory – I wonder if they still have it on the menu?

      Thank you Denise. We have had a few glimpses of Italy (search Italy for relevant posts) and are heading back to Rome this May for a closer look! Enjoy your planning your trip and we look forward to crossing paths in 2014… or perhaps a houseswap would be in order??

        Nola, will look forward to hearing all about Rome from you. We are flying into Venice, wll be making our way to Verona, then Florence through The Tuscany regiom, ending up in Rome. Going in the fall celebrating our 40th. And house swapping sounds good also. Will have to talk more abut that.
