Door Furniture in the Loire Valley

Many people collect door fittings, either physically or more commonly, by photographing them. These people love the Loire Valley because the range of splendid and unusual door knobs, hinges and knockers is just about endless. One of the most popular is the so-called 'Hand of Fatima' style, featuring a woman's hand. We will be sure to tell you the somewhat unsatisfactory history of this distinctive door knocker if we pass a suitable door while you are with us.
