Best kid-friendly place to watch the 14th of july fireworks: Monbazillac castle

Today is Bastille Day!!!
Rather than heading down to Bergerac harbour to join the crowds waiting for the fireworks display to commence on an Island opposite, at 10.30 pm, let me share with you our favorite spot!
... the Castle of Monbazillac...
High up on the hills, we found that Monbazillac was the best place to celebrate this national day!
Not crowded, safe for kids (they can run free and they are not frighted by the sound of the fireworks), brillant view of the Bergerac vineyards at your feet, you won't find a better place!...Sitting on the grass, you can enjoy a light snack, a glass of Bergerac wine while embrassing the view ... and wait for 10.30 pm, the kickstart of the most spectacular and colourful display filled the sky and lasting for over an hour!

We'll be there tonight! What about you?

Happy Bastille Day everyone!!
