We had 'visited' the village of Chambon (just off the D750 outside Barrou ) before to have lunch at the 'Le Vieux Fournil; (must do that post) but on the face of it there was not a great deal more to see. We did however decide to do one of the planned walks around the village and are glad we did.
The busy main street of the village - over 300 people actually live here!
The local pottery which displays the work of Jacqeline and Bernard Courcoul to excellent effect. They had just drawn up outside as we were passing and invited us in (more later) - even though they were officially 'closed'- very kind. As it turns out Bernard is actually the Mayor of the village and gave us a little, much appreciated,'local knowledge' for our route.
Looking back down the hill to the village
This way for all!
|At one of the 'viewpoints' Chateau Rouvray can be seen in the distance - though not too well with my zoom|
The L'etang de la Forge was looking resplendent on this beautiful day.and just as we were counting our blessings...
We noticed some movement on the opposite bank - how lucky are we!
|Took a breather before heading back down to the village.|
|Enjoyed this walk - and what a great day!|
