Travels in France - Loire valley


Travelling again, but at quite a leisurely pace. We called into Saumur and had a look around, including the old town. The Eglise St Pierre was closed for major works, and as we had seen 2 Chateaux yesterday, we decided that a beer was better. So we pootled off to Chinon for a beer, and a light lunch (assiette de charcuterie for me)and a trip to the Hypermarche for some wine. Then we had a short stop in Loudun, prior to arriving late afternoon at the Chateau du Boise Doucette. It is lovely and relaxing and very quiet. It is around 7 miles from Poitiers.
Sunflowers galore!



Madame is very talkative, but speaks French in a Poitevin accent, that makes Biere sound like Pierre. Talking only french is hard enough without this - I suppose it is like understanding a geordie accent in England. 

The sunflowers are amazing outside. Indeed there seem to be only two regular crops in the Poitou - sunflowers and Maize.
