After spending an evening at the Gerbe d'Or in Loches talking about the boulangerie (see yesterday's post) and deciding that the only option would be to demolish part of it to make a courtyard, we decided that we were being silly, and that there were sure to be other options.
We had decided we liked the feel of Preuilly, so the next day (a Sunday) we spent the morning in the Brenne, then drove to Preuilly to have lunch. We lunched at l'Image, the first of many pleasant meals we have had there over the years. It was Mother's Day, so we were lucky to get the last free table in the place.

Our second proper picture of Preuilly. 12h39, 28 May 2006. If we had known
we would still be here ten years later we would have taken more photos
The meal was enough to convince us we really did like Preuilly, and to return on Monday check out other houses on the market.
