Last year Sandra and I visited the local and extremely pretty South Touraine village of Le Petit Pressigny during its popular annual autumn open doors arts fete.
Rather like the village of Ferrière Larçon, Le Petit Pressigny has managed to attract a community of artists and artisans while still retaining the earthiness and character of a working, rural village. Should you be in the area do take the time to visit; walk along the banks of the river Aigronne, chat with local people, take one of the circular Pre-History Trails or visit the new community, literary café which should now be open.
Here are some of the photographs I took in last year’s crisp autumn sunlight.
