This part of France is still fairly authentic, in spite of many foreigners having converted old buildings like these - often to the better, sometimes to the worse. But one does still come across properties that don't seem to have changed for centuries. And just when you imagine the farmer coming round the corner on a horse carriage - voila! - there he comes on a huge modern tractor!
