Pays de la Loire

A little trip for a day. From Paris, less than two hours by car and you arrive to GIEN.

GIEN : the bridge cross over the river Loire

GIEN is a very famous for its ceramic. In that little town there is a ceramics outlet.

On the road, between GIEN and Orléans, we saw a charming casttle in SULLY SUR LOIRE :

We did like a very old church in GERMIGNY DES PRES. A part of this church had been built in 806 for a CHARLEMAGNE’S minister.

All this area, PAYS DE LOIRE, is very sweet. Before to comme back to PARIS, we stop in ORLEANS :
