Rare photograph of Chateau de Chenonceau...no tourists


This is a photograph of possibly the most popular chateau in the Loire Valley, Chateau de Chenonceau but it is rare in that there is not a tourist to be seen! Normally this would be impossible for this view but if you choose your moment...this was taken in early April by American guests staying at 'Le Bourg' vacation rental ,who as it happens are returning for their 4th visit this year!

I have become quite adept at avoiding  people in my photographs of the Loire Valley, although Pauline doesn't like me ushering people out of my shots!

Visit a Loire Valley church for Sunday...

St.André-church-Villaines-les-Rochers wall coverings

As you drive around the Loire Valley you  should make a point of popping into the local churches as, even if you are not religious, you may just be surprised at the joys you will find inside. Like the interior of St. Andrew's church in the village of Villaines-les-Rochers...a delight.
