"Les petits plaisirs" in the Valley of Loire...


Next to the huge amount of castles and wineries inviting for a stop and nice time there are also other little pleasures ("les petits plaisirs") for the stomach as well as for the eyes, waiting to be discovered and enjoyed in the Loire Valley...This is definitely the area for goat cheese lovers. Crottin de Chavignol, Vallencay, Selles sur Sere....just name it! Plenty of different names and shapes for fresh and less young goat cheese sorts.

The cozy feeling that little villages manage to create with lovely flower decoration and colorful pots on the walls is really amazing! In the village Ferte Saint Aubin some metal flowers decorates the city showing a good recycling example:)












Another beauty are the signs ("enseignes") on a building, indicating what the owner is doing...In the case below the answer is food...
