Last weekend, I noticed this window and this door in an old wall up near the château and church in the village of Palluau-sur-Indre, about 25 miles south of Saint-Aignan.
Palluau is one of just a few "perched villages" in the area around Saint-Aignan-sur-Cher. It's also one of my favorite places. In summer it feels méridional ("southern") and in winter it feels abandoned.
The massive towers of the old château rise up over the village at the top of a steep hill above the Indre River.
