1868_anglesWe drove through the delightful little village of Angles-sur-l’Anglin which is about two hours south of Blois by car when we went to Angoulême in the winter and promised ourselves we would come back again. Most of the constructions are mediaeval and date back to the Hundred Years’ War. It’s name comes from a tribe of Angles, the Germanic people after whom England is named.
Nous sommes passés en voiture dans ce beau petit village d’Angles-sur-l’Anglin qui se trouve à deux heures en voiture au sud de Blois lors d’un séjour à Angoulême en hiver. On s’est promis de revenir aux beaux jours. La plupart des constructions sont médiévales et datent de la guerre de Cent ans. Elle tire son nom d’une tribu d’Angles, le peuple germanique qui a donné le mot Angleterre.

Well worth a visit.
I still like the supposed Roman way of words about captured , therefore slaves, from England who were said to be ‘ Angels not Angles’.
