A Short Walk From Chambon

 Chambon is a small charming village full of pretty stone cottages and little alleyways. The village is set just as the land starts to rise above the Creuse Valley, and is surrounded by arable land. The forest is nearby on the plateau.

Interesting structures in that small village. The figurines on the chimney look like meerkats!

Definately stylised, anyway.
