This morning we had a stroll round the lovely town of Chinon. It takes us about twenty minutes in the car travelling north from Braye sous Faye and it is a real gem.

We usually park up by the fortress and take the glass lift down into the town. The view en route is amazing.

Chinon was at its best in the sunshine today with its stalls selling fruit and vegetables.

I particularly liked the little arrangements of mugeut des bois this stall holder was selling.

We walked through the back streets admiring the quirky architecture of the town.

The narrow streets and the tree filled square provide welcome shade and the opportunity to sit with a coffee and watch the world go by.

Then it was back for  a spot of shopping and window gazing... 

Chinon has some lovely little shops, always with attractive window displays, even if it's only needles and thread they are selling!
