Well we are back in England again after a wonderful ‘working’ holiday. This time there were no leaks from the radiators and no freezing cold weather. It was sunshine every day, about 36C until the very last day when it dropped to about 28C. To be able to sit outside on the balcony in the late evening sun with a glass of wine, you cannot beat it.
We did work on various DIY tasks and we did visit a lot of markets, tourist sites etc but I shall write about them in future blogs. However, first and foremost we need to take a look at our favourite place, Daglan…
Here are a few of the places of interest which I hope you will like.
The fourteenth century Church of St. Martin just off the village square.
This was the village boulangerie which has been renovated into a home.
One of the many cauldrons which hang from the houses in Daglan
A very interesting curiosity is to be found high in the wall opposite the church doors. On the plaque is written ‘Tour de France’ but we need to find out more information why it is there, and who does it represent?
This is just one of the privately owned Chateaus in Daglan, I love it.
This is the back of the gorgeous Chateau, it has gardens which seem to go on forever and run alongside the river bank. See below for a view of the river with the gardens alongside.
Behind the Chateau is the Céou River that gives its name to the Céou Valley in which Daglan is situated.
There are various artists in Daglan this wire sculpture is at the entrance of the latest exposition.
La Petite Minoche, hats for every occasion and price. Well worth a visit.
