We had lunch in the village of Genillé last week, and I posted pictures of some of the food yesterday. Here are some scenes I saw around the village church and from the restaurant window. We were treated to the best seat in the house.
I enjoyed the view of the village church from the front window of the restaurant. And I thought it was fun taking a picture of it through a glass of the wine that we were drinking, which was a very pale, 100% Cabernet Franc rosé from the wine village of Bourgueil, on the Loire just downstream from the city of Tours.
Here's the church again. Before going into the restaurant, I went inside and took some photos of the stained glass windows. They are not particularly old, but the colors are nice. Maybe I'll post some of the photos this coming week.
Looking back from a point near the church, here's a view of the front windows of the restaurant. As I said yesterday, the service was excellent, the food was delicious, and the prices were affordable. Two thumbs up.
If you need to visit the toilettes, you have to climb this old spiral staircase in the restaurants back room. I used to live in an apartment building in Paris that had a staircase like this one. I lived on the 5th floor (U.S.) or the 6ème étage (French). I was so much younger then...
I liked the posters on display in the Agnès Sorel's front window. The woman who runs the restaurant explained to us that the big plate glass windows had to be replaced after World War II, the older ones having been shattered by the force of explosions and bombardments in the area around Tours.
