1. A visitor to the site offers further information (added 20/6/16)...

I enjoyed your write up of Rochefort en Terre, it is indeed a beautiful town. It has just won the most beautiful village in France, so it is even more sought after now. One thing I didn't see above, is a mention of the amazing lights at Christmas. People come from everywhere just to see them, even causing considerably long traffic jams. It's a wonderful evening, with mulled wine available in many of the bars.
