Timber Walls

The Sologne is an interesting part of France. It's not well know outside of France; I wonder how well known it is inside of France. It's on the edge of the Touraine, the edge of the Berry, and is a place forested (thanks to planted forests of pine and birch) and filled with ponds (thanks to drainage projects dating from the mid 19th century).

Many towns in this region contain houses and buildings made with red brick, often with timber framing. Here are some examples:

These are just a few examples of the timber and brick/stone construction typical of this very beautiful region of central France.
