Photographer's Note

Described as one of the prettiest villages in France and awarded the 2 flower label for its floral decoration, Angles-sur-l'Anglin is a small village that is officially in the Poitou province. The names of the village (Angles) and the river that runs through it (l'Anglin) derive from a group of Angles who supposedly settled the place between the years 500 and 1000 A.D., according to different sources. The Angles were a Germanic people who, along with the Saxons, also settled in what is now England. The narrow unspoiled streets of the village are lined with attractive medieval houses that lead to the castle, and also to a roman style church and bell tower. There are streets to wander leisurely and streets that require more effort where you can appreciate the views of the village. Here looking up one of the main streets in Angles from the bridge over the Anglin.
