Progress has been slow at 'the project' due to us having (fortunately) a busy rental season with the houses plus life (?) getting in the way but I managed a little bit this week. I have cast the steps necessary to link the landing to the new entrance to what will be a bedroom in the old 'grenier'.

We welcomed new guests from Toronto to 'Le Bourg' on Sunday on a day that had the weather playing some odd tricks...rain then sunshine then torrential rain then sunshine again! At one stage it was so gloomy that we decided to light the wood burner to bring a feeling of warmth into the house.
However as we awaited their arrival it picked up again with the light changing things for the better!

We greeted more keen cyclists at 'Les Balcons' on Saturday looking forward to taking in the beautiful local countryside of Southern Touraine. The Loire Valley here in France offers such a diverse landscape that cycling is one of the most popular activities. From river valleys to undulating countryside with pleasant surprises around almost ever corner.

This Sunday as part of the 'Journees du Patrimoine' weekend is a good time to visit any church you may pass en-route to some other visit as many that would normally be locked are likely to be open today and some will have parts of the church open that would not be accessible to you.
