Visits to Formigine and Saumur in 2017

Coldest night of the year forecast just the time to think about sunnier, warmer times to come next year.  How about a Spring weekend in Italy or Autumn weekend in France?
Think about, Formigine, May 7th, an annual festival of food, drink, music in a carnival atmosphere, ‘La Magnalonga’. Sample food and entertainment in the villages of the area that produced Ferrari and Pavarotti.
Or, how about Saumur? the final Sunday of September, another festival of food and drink with a medieval flavour, La fête des Vendanges. A celebration of the first grape pressings held in the grounds of the fairytale Chateau, overlooking this beautiful town that sits astride the mighty Loire river.
