Villeloin-Coulangé

Looking for stuff on the internet over the years I had seen the 19th century photos showing a magnificent gatehouse for the Abby of Villeloin-Coulangé, but although we have driven through the village a number of times I had never actually seen the gatehouse. I just assumed it had fallen down in the meantime. Which was a pity.


But no - it still exists, and on Saturday we took clients to see it. We have decided that it's a perfect photo opportunity, because even if you park in the middle of the road for 15 minutes no-one much will be inconvenienced.


So now when we travel from Loches to Montresor we have another little surprise. Or maybe not so little!

Have you been to the Prieuré de Grandmont Villiers? There's an NR article about it here.
