Well, these statues did appear on the TV Book Club film, though you had to be eagle-eyed to spot them! But the village did feature quite prominently, and I'm wondering whether any of you who know Provence well recognised where we were...
No more teasing: it was in Saignon, the hill-top village above the town of Apt. It is a very pretty place, and Ceres and the Water Carrier perch atop the fountain in the square, just outside the Auberge du Presbytere.
My gaze rested on the fountain in the square where we sat: black-green with lichen and moss, the water spewing from the mouth of a gargoyle, water as cool and dark as the Styx.
