Saumur and the Loire

We’re just back from a few days in France. The first few days were at Saumur in the Loire valley. We’re always drawn to the magic of the Loire - the river glides through the countryside and seems to be unchanged for centuries. The Chateaux are equally magical - can you believe this really exists?

The crafts which constructed these buildings are still being taught today - the building school in Saumur was doing a masonry lesson...
