About 12 months ago Susan and I travelled along the back road from Boussay to Chambon whilst exploring new and picturesque routes to the supermarché in la Roche Posay. At the time we were both taken by the view as you enter the valley of the Creuse river above Chambon, but couldn't find anywhere to stop and take a photo. (As usual, once we saw the view we were past it.) Last week, however, I found a little chalk quarry by the edge of the road which gave me enough room to park safely and take some photos. You can see it as a white blob in the middle of this map.
Chambon isn't the only settlement you can see though - there are hamlets and farms scattered all along the valley, as you can see from the Géoportail map. This is la Penneterie,
and this is la Poussardiére:
One of the more interesting buildings in this view is the farm on the edge of Chambon, called le Château, although if it is really a château we don't really know.
All these photos were taken from the one spot and turning the camera through an arc of about 45°, which really does give an idea of how full the landscape is.
