I’d linger to look at these windows any day. Not just the windows but the buildings nestled in the cliffs using the cliffs as the rear wall and part of the roof. I had written on the photos that this town located in France is a place called Baluzuk but I have discovered that there is no village with this name. The closest location I can give for it is around the Dordogne region in France reasonably close to  Perigeux. I have looked at the photos available on the internet and I can’t believe that someone hasn’t taken photos of the same scenes as myself. If you saw these windows, wouldn’t you be snapping away?




About Irene Waters 19 Writer Memoirist

I began my working career as a reluctant potato peeler whilst waiting to commence my training as a student nurse. On completion I worked mainly in intensive care/coronary care; finishing my hospital career as clinical nurse educator in intensive care. A life changing period as a resort owner/manager on the island of Tanna in Vanuatu was followed by recovery time as a farmer at Bucca Wauka. Having discovered I was no farmer and vowing never again to own an animal bigger than myself I took on the Barrington General Store. Here we also ran a five star restaurant. Working the shop of a day 7am - 6pm followed by the restaurant until late was surprisingly more stressful than Tanna. On the sale we decided to retire and renovate our house with the help of a builder friend. Now believing we knew everything about building we set to constructing our own house. Just finished a coal mine decided to set up in our backyard. Definitely time to retire we moved to Queensland. I had been writing a manuscript for some time. In the desire to complete this I enrolled in a post grad certificate in creative Industries which I completed 2013. I followed this by doing a Master of Arts by research graduating in 2017. Now I live to write and write to live.

  1. Very intriguing pictures! I was immediately thinking the Dordogne region when I saw them, because this is such an ancient area. But I’ve never heard the name Baluzuk. Perhaps the name has changed?

    I’ve been very near here Irene, I believe it is in or near Brantome (which is where we go with our friends in the Dordogne region and where my french windows in my posts came from, so how about that for a coincidence!). The day we went it was closed so we couldn’t get all the way in to these incredible caves but we did see some of them from above the closed gates. If we get to go there this summer I’ll be sure to get some pics and we can compare notes 🙂 Small world, eh?

    For me, anything of interest brings my camera out for shots. I love to photograph and write. I definitely would take photos of this part of France had I a chance. Awesome.
