    Hello, can you help me? You say the flea market is the fourth Sunday of the month, the Montsoreau website says it’s the second Sunday. I’m about to book flights but now I’m not sure which Sunday?!?!
    Thank you 😊

    Hello Jo,

    My family and I are on a year long travel journey as I write. We are looking to spend at least a month in France and the cave house sounds so interesting. Could you email me contact details for the home? thanks so much!

    In Montsoreau I think the banner for the Marches Les Puces says it is on the 2nd Sunday of the month.
