A few weeks ago I posted about a wine tasting trip we took with some friends to the
area. You can read about it here. Quincy
On our way home we drove via the very pretty
, and stopped to have a wander. village of Bouges-le-Château, in the Indre department
The village is dominated by the château which was built in 1759, and remained a private residence until it was donated to the state in 1968.
On this occasion we didn't have time to visit, but will return - we need more of the delicious Quincy wine we bought, and loved. Now when I say 'we', I actually mean 'I', as Tim doesn't enjoy wine! I don't argue much, as it seems a shame to waste good wine!!
It was a warm, late April afternoon and the little restaurant had just stopped serving ....
A couple sheltering from the heat of the day.
The church was a very simple one. I liked the effect of the sun shining through the window on to the floor. We didn't manage to capture the colours as well as I was hoping to.
There are some beautiful villages to visit in the Berry, and our friends John and Maureen are excellent guides. The gite is in a great location, and they are happy to share their knowledge with their guests. You can find more information about their gite here.
