Strawberry Festival at Beaulieu-sur-Dordogne

FraisesBeaulieu-sur-Dordogne (19 Correze, Nouvelle Aquitaine) claims to be at the heart of “Strawberry Country” and hence celebrates its Fete de la Fraise every Spring – this year it takes place on Sunday 12 May 2019 (Fête de la Fraise). As usual there will be a competition for the best fruit, a massive strawberry tarte, producer’s stalls, music and a parade – and now in its 20th year the pattern is well-established.

Beaulieu Strawberry Festival

Beaulieu Strawberry Festival

There is a website for the festival at www.tourismecorreze.comwhich tells you more about strawberries than you may feel you need to know )e.g. the prime variety of Strawberry here is the “garriguette”), but the festival itself looks most enticing, bringing a real taste of Spring.
Beaulieu (literally “beautiful place”) is a pretty village high up the Dordogne valley – above Sarlat and the classical heart of the Dordogne.The departement of the Corrèze is less-crowded than the rest of the Dordogne, and more unspoilt deepest France which is worth exploring..
