Tuesday for towns in the Loire Valley - Azay-le-Rideau


As part of Patrimone weekend we chose to revisit the delightful Azay-le-Rideau and we were not disappointed. It was looking good under a beautiful blue September sky. 





We couldn't resist also taking in the town's beautiful chateau.

We took our own advice...

"It's Sunday it's Patrimoine Weekend...why not visit a church" Well actually we visited quite a few, even one with a tree growing out of its wall! Over the next few weekend we will use them in our 'Church on Sunday' feature.We had a busy day but it wasn't all churches...

Monday's Loire Valley chateau - Laverdin

Looking towards the ruins of Chateau de Laverdin

Well, more accurately 'Loir Valley chateau' (without the e) The Chateau de Lavardin was built on a rocky headland 45 m above the River Loir in the village of Lavardin in Loir-et-Cher. Today the ruins of the  fortress dominate the valley and the village, which is listed as one of 'Les Plus Beaux Villages de France'
