Photography | Loire Valley
In 2012 we stayed for three weeks near a little village called Orbigny, a commune in the Indre-et-Loire department of France. In 2014 the population of Orbigny was 756, which gives you a feel for how quiet it is.

Montrésor is quite close at 7km, and we actually walked there early in our holiday. Voted one of the most beautiful villages in France, with its Chateau it has a bit more to offer than Orbigny, including the River Indrois that I fished.

The choice of location was to place us near the Loire chateaux. We visited many, as well as exploring this lovely area of France. As usual, my photographs are a mixture of tourist shots and some that I hope are a bit more unusual.

There are many more photographs in my collection and here I've tried to present a small selection that gives a flavour of the area and the experiences we enjoyed.
