Thursday Doors: Chabanais

The town of Chabanais stands on the Vienne river in the neighbouring département of Charente.

It’s about a 45-minute drive from Tranquility Base and we used to go there quite regularly for pub quizzes – until the pub in question closed down abruptly and without explanation (the inevitable rumours suggested that this may have had something to do with tax payments, or absence thereof).

So I hadn’t really seen the town in the daytime until recently, when we visited on a Saturday morning. While Madame did her thing with the quilting group, I slouched off with my camera in search of more doors for your delectation.

Although there’s not much left of the old parts of the place, it can still boast a few interesting doors, so my quest wasn’t entirely fruitless.

As it turns out, most of these images form natural pairs, such as these green doors:

And then there were these:

Two adjacent doors:

And even this single door is a double door, if you see what I mean:

  1. Love all this stud work in your French doors….and the last one is very different, but rather lovely…

  2. Nice collection of doors. I always enjoy seeing old weathered buildings and doors! The aged green doors set against the stone buildings are my favorites.
