Cow Street (our street!) in Reuilly
Cow painting by Bastien Millan

Why the cow's head? We live on Rue des Vaches (Cow Street). Yes, when we tell our French acquaintances they laugh. How many care to boast they live on Cow Street? Be careful however when trying to find us on your GPS. So many guests have entered "Rue des Vaches" then taken a two hour tour of the area, not realizing that most villages have a "Cow Street".  You will find us here: N49° 3'29", E3° 33'23"

 

See the white obelisk behind the sign. It is a memorial to the dead of WWI, then WW2. Every town in France has one. If you go into Google Maps and ask for the street view it will put you on the D1003 in front of the obelisk, with our house (top photo) up the hill a bit. Rotate the Googlemap and you can see 360°.
