A Bird's-Eye View Of Verteuil-Sur-Charente

Christophe GUAY // Sunday, 16 June 2019

As a gift of sympathy for now being half a century in age my family offered me a flight from Angoulême over the beautiful village of Verteuil-Sur-Charente where I happen to live.

Barry Watton Shares His Monthly Gardening Tips For November

Christophe GUAY // Thursday, 08 November 2018
