Re: Auberge du Moulin de Freteix (near Betete)

by Suzanne • Wed 08 Aug 2018 10:54

I did ask the owner/manageress about booking for evening meals, and she was reluctant to book us in just for two people ( I guess it's not worth her while). She talked me in to the lunchtime booking instead. As it's now the busy season perhaps you'd have more luck, but I'd certainly recommend phonin...

Seafood/fish restaurants

by Suzanne • Sun 22 Jul 2018 21:11

Can anyone please recommend a restaurant in our beautiful Creuse that does good seafood/fish dishes ? It will be my birthday during our next visit, on a Friday, and I've given up eating red meat on Fridays - it's been a long-standing thing for many years now. So I need to find a restaurant to book f...

Auberge du Moulin de Freteix (near Betete)

by Suzanne • Tue 17 Jul 2018 09:44

Just wanted to recommend a restaurant we tried on our last visit to the Creuse. The Auberge du Moulin de Freteix (near Betete) is well off the beaten path, down its own track in fact en route to the village of Freteix. It is a lovely little auberge, set in a secluded wooded valley, with a building w...

VO Films - Le Senechal or elsewhere 'en Creuse'

by Suzanne • Tue 17 Jul 2018 09:27

Can anyone recommend the easiest way to find English VO films in the Creuse ? Every visit to France I look up the schedule published for Le Senechal in Gueret and so far we have never managed to visit when there is an English VO film being shown. I love films and enjoy the challenge of watching film...

Re: Tutoring (English)

We would be based just North of Gueret. I was planning to contact language schools for direct employment as a tutor and/or offer home tutoring. I looked into going through the 'Concours' to work in mainstream schools but when I discovered it won't guarantee I would be located in the Creuse there did...

Good points ! I've got 9 years experience teaching French at Secondary schools, but I want to start tutoring English when we move to the Creuse (both to support children with school lessons and adults with their 'Business English'). I've signed up with a couple of tutoring agencies here in England t...

No, I missed the Rodin relief. We will just have to go back to have a look, and what a fantastic excuse (as if I really need one!) to have another meal there.

The evening meal was excellent value for money. We tried one of the set menus which was 20 euros pp for 4 courses and I was very impressed at the standard of cooking and presentation.

Restaurant and walk at Fresselines (23450)

by Suzanne • Fri 21 Apr 2017 10:11

This Easter we've been 'profiting' from the sunshine and exploring an area of the Creuse that is new to us at Fresselines and we were so impressed by the pretty river walk and good food and warm welcome at the Bar-Restaurant Les Artistes du confluent that we went back yesterday for a second walk and...

Tarte au citron

by Suzanne • Sun 10 Apr 2016 17:49

I love tarte au citron, but it seems to have disappeared from all the supermarkets. Has anyone else noticed this strange phenomenon, or am I simply arriving at the shops too late in the day to buy it ? Most importantly can anyone recommend a good reliable source (supermarket or boulangerie) ? Or, as...

Horse riding

For anyone interested in horse riding I have recently tried out a place called La Chevauchée and would highly recommend it. They do the usual lessons, but also carriage driving, and absolutely fantastic hacking. Last week I booked for a hack, which the ride leader called 'une bonne balade'. What an ...

Re: How good is your English grammar?

by Suzanne • Tue 30 Apr 2013 20:51

Caught out by the two possible uses of 'pride' (I won;t look at a pride of lions in the same way again).
I confess I had to look up what a 'gerund' was, and I still don't understand it, but have learnt it always ends in 'ing'. Voila !
