First stop - the boulangerie.
I recommend the macaroons (quite different than macarons) - sensational just like my mum use to make in the 1970's hot out the oven, coconut, crisp and slightly brown on the outside but a soft flavoursome centre.
Go with the 6 for 2 euros.
There are several small supermarkets selling all sorts of produce from local cheese to good quality ski gloves. And just incase, there is even a heart defibrillator in the main street right next to the library!
Top 10 for Les Cabannes
- Le Boulangerie.......
- Dinner at A La Montanha ( recommend booking).
- Wander to the cemetery for a history lesson.
- Have a go at trout fishing at the organic trout farm or the Aston River.
- Buy a bottle of local wine and stock up on local cheese, ham and condiments from La Ferme Du Quie Les Cabannes.
- Try a beer in the local pub but avoid the taxidermied animals especially the wolf on the bar counter!
- Stroll through the Sunday Market.
- In summer its the place to kayak, hike, horse-ride.
- In winter hire some ski gear from either of the hire places in the village,
- And head up the top of Plateau de Beille - unbelievable snow, skiing, dog sleighing and igloo building........
