Loches...a hidden gem













Our stay in the Loire Valley was about 3 miles from Loches, France.  A small town in the heart of Chateaux country...sometimes called the valley of kings.  We stayed here not because of Loches but because of our gite.  I was not familiar with Loches and thee is not a whole lot about this village available when researching areas of France.  However, we found the countryside, the village residents and the old architecture some of the best we experienced.

We would often take walks or short drives at sunset....often the best time with the long shadows to bring out the character in a landscape or a building.  One of my favorite buildings was the "Horlogerie" on a street corner headed out of town (pictured directly above).  If you are wondering what a Horlogerie is ...the signs on each side of the door are a clue.
