"Saint-Ferme, definitely off the beaten path..." Saint-Ferme by Mique

Saint-Ferme Travel Guide: 13 reviews and 89 photos

My parents have taken the step of moving to France.. And this is where they've ended up... Saint Ferme. I had never heard of it before but it is a really charming little place (350 hundred inhabitants). It is situated in an area that is called les-deux-mers (the 2 seas) which refers to the 2 rivers, the Dordogne and the Garonne

The whole area is still very much a wine-area but is luckily not as touristy as is less known.

Although in earlier times this place was defintely ON the beate path. Pelgrims to Santiago de Compostella could stay a night over at the abbey. Where there was a special room reserved for them and where their feet would be taken care of. A very tiny part of that old path runs right behind my parent´s property..

It really is an area where you can have the good life. There is much history, many villages organise all kinds of cultural events.. and then there is the wine...

Pros and Cons

    We are so lucky..we will get to see this charming town before all the hoards of tourist discover it. I will bring the "Bacardi" for just in case the "1" pub is not open....
