Living and Building a home in the heart of France

A day in Limoges
Last Saturday we ventured out to visit Limoges, travelling by train - a pleasant, clean, punctual experience in this part of the world. Lunch, involving consumption of many more chips than we thought we'd asked for, was enjoyed under parasols in one of the
wide paved squares. We wandered around the more attractive parts of the city, in the old butchers' quarter, among half-timbered buildings.
The city's famous for porcelain and enamel, and there are many shops and workshops to see and buy from.
This 'trompe-l'oeil' fašade is painted on!

This lovely old building now houses a bead shop.
