Architectural Detail in the Loire Valley

 We love the detail you can see if you look at even quite humble buildings in the Loire Valley. Take this hinge -- on a barn door in a village, undoubtedly hand made by the local blacksmith and at least a hundred years old. Simple but functional, and with charming decorative touches that please the eye and the soul. When you come on a tour with us we make sure to point out these lovely rustic details wherever we go.
