I’ve just noticed it’s Frizztext’s A to Z challenge again, and I’ve just squeezed in in time for A….
I have decided my response to the A to Z challenge will be a ‘postcard’ (or two) from a place I have visited at some stage, so it will be a nice little wander through travel memories… And perhaps some of my readers will be inspired to add places to their ‘must visit’ list!
A is for Angles sur l’Anglin, a village north east of Poitiers in the Vienne region of France. It is designated as one of France’s Plus Beaux Villages, and it certainly lives up to it’s name. The village sits beneath a striking ruined castle which towers above the Anglin valley. The castle was an important stronghold in medieval times.
The village itself consists of upper and lower sections. It has a bridge decked with flowers, from which the wheel of a water I’ll is visible, streets lined with medieval houses, a church with a Romanesque tower – in all, very photogenic. The village and surrounding area attracts many artists, unsurprisingly!
