Our new homw will be half way between Monflaquin and Villereal which are both Bastide towns.
Its a bit ignorant on our part but we had not been into Villereal for many years si it was decided that we would go into town this morning and enjoy the morning market too.
The atmosphere was very convivial. I suspected that even if the locals were not there to buy anything they were there to talk, drink coffee or pastis (yes even at 10 am) or watch.
We bought a whole chicken (poulet) for 7 euros which was cooked slowly on the spit to devour for our lunch at Jean Blanc later. I think it could become a regular occassion as its only 10 minutes from the house.
