Last Friday I arrived at Les Petites Cigognes, or “The Little Storks”, in the French Loire region for a weekend with friends, both old and new. Les Petites Cigognes are gites run by the very friendly Ian and Sandra and understandably book up very quickly in the season. Converted from old farm buildings, the gites retain the Touraine style and must be quite beautiful in spring and the height of summer.
Here are a couple of photos:
That stack of wood was part of the extensive stocks for the woodburners in each gite.
