What you need to know before your trail

It isn’t often you receive a letter from the dead.

When Vianne Rocher receives a letter from beyond the grave, she allows the wind to blow her back to the village in south-west France where, eight years ago, she opened up a chocolate shop. But Lansquenet is different now: women veiled in black, the scent of spices and peppermint tea, and, on the bank of the river Tannes, facing the church: a minaret.

Nor is it only the incomers from North Africa that have brought change. Father Reynaud, Vianne’s erstwhile adversary, is disgraced and under threat. Could it be that Vianne is the only one who can save him now?

Travel Guide

Travel BookTrail style to rural France with the aroma of Chocolat in the air!

Set in fictional Lansquenet-Sous-Tannes but inspired by Nerac in Aquitaine. The village is clearly situated in the south of France in the book, close to Toulouse and that quiet and rural region that only the south of France provides. (especially west to the city of Toulouse) The fun is to find the chocolate shops and do a trail through them all!

The name of the character Vianne in the Chocolat novels is said to have been inspired by a town within the Lavardac commune and the town of Lavardac where the fictional Lansquenet is probably inspired by. The village could also be inspired by Nérac, on the river Baïse, as a little French birdie tells us that Joanne Harris spent some of her childhood holidays here and it’s also very close to a tiny village called Vianne. Could these be clues?

There is a artisanale chocolate shop here called La Cigale! and photos on the site of Joanne Harris
