I didn't take as many photos of the inside of Jean and Adrienne's gîte rural as I thought I had. For example, I don't seem to have any photos of the bedrooms. I believe there were three of them, and two of them had exposed, rough-hewn-oak roof trusses. The living/dining room downstairs had exposed ceiling beams (poutres apparentes in French). I guess I didn't take many photos because we were busy while we were there, visiting houses that were for sale, and because we were only in the gîte for 5 or 6 nights before we drove back to Paris and flew back to San Francisco.
The owners, Jean and Adrienne, lived in the grander house on the left, and we were staying in the converted barn on the right. In the slide show, one picture shows Walt petting the local black cat, and there was also a little black dog living in with J and A. They were great, by the way. They were very interested to learn that we were looking for a house to buy. They invited us to dinner one night, and when we moved into our house in Saint-Aignan, we had them over for dinner too. I'm sorry we sort of lost touch with them over the years.
