Earlier in the month, the sweet husband, puppy and I went to a Renaissance Faire.
It was small and the association that organised it were very dedicated. Living in the United States, everything is bigger, so even though I was excited to visit France's version of a Ren Faire, I didn't get my expectations up so high. By the way, yes I love Renaissance Faires, there I said it.
The event was located outside Bordeaux in the village of Louipac, located south of the city. We got lost, but eventually found our way.
When we arrived, we walked down a long path through a vineyard to reach the small festival. First, we are greeted by a lady in garb. All in all, the event was perhaps a total of 8 booths selling the usual, 2 food vendors, a weapons demonstration, an archery range and a tour of a small château that looked like it was burned from dragon fire. Truth is, someone lived in the small castle until 1939, and turns out, instead of dragonfire, it was the Germans.
My next post will be about some local restos to check out if you decide to come to Bordeaux! As you may not know, Cachou and I organize walking tours. For more information, click on the Contact page. Thank you so much for reading and bonne semaine!

Frenchified for Life
is a fabulous little lifestyle blog about truly embracing French life!
My intent is to simply inspire you to create something unique and beautiful in your everyday life. The French have this wonderful and annoying habit of seeing the world through rose colored glasses, might as well learn something from them!
That said, I lift my glass to you!
By the way, I mention the name Cachou (or The Cash) a lot, I'm referring to her...
