Claret, bell tower

Claret is a large village nestling up high around its church.

It has several brand new spotlessly clean car parks shaded by plane trees, a little square with green and lavender blue benches which look just right, a covered wash-house and picturesque sloping streets, gardens perfumed with lavender, a fine perched church,unpretentious houses brightened up with brown, green and blue shutters...

and of course a few old barns just waiting to be restored!

Claret, the village

Horses in a field, an old lady enjoying the cool evening air in her doorway, and doing the crossword puzzle at the same time, a sleeping dog...

At Claret, life carries on its peaceful course!
