Jacques is in a very pretty quiet setting, with an uninterrupted view
over wooded hills. It is a small village built up high, where agriculture
is still important, and old barns filled with hay rub shoulders with modern
houses and gardens where children play.
There is plenty of fallow land, old tractors rusting in the fields and barns with holes in their roofs, but there are also a few rather picturesque alleyways, a wash-house and fountain under the shade of chestnut trees, one or two fine stone houses and welcoming terraces inviting the visitor to have a drink in the cool shade, breathing in this pure air and admiring this superb panorama where nature is written with a capital ?!
