20th Festival of Chestnuts and of Cèpe Mushrooms

Big weekend in Villefranche this weekend as it hosts the Autumn festival of mushrooms and chestnuts. Villefranche is not as lively as its cousin Monpaizer just down the road, but this weekend it has its moment in the sun.

There was no parking anywhere in town today, we had to park down by the lake. There was even a truck towing cars which had parked alongside the main road.. what is rural life coming too!!
