St Etienne

The region around St Etienne and part of the Loire is a picturesque part of France my husband and I wouldn't have discovered or been able to visit without the kind help of my husband's Music Internet friend Fred, who invited us to stay with them for a couple of days in their town, Aurec Sur Loire. ....to be continued...

This street in St Etienne is supposed to be the longest straight shopping street in Europe, at 7 kms long (I don't know how they do the comparisons for it to get this title!)

This picturesque hillside is called Mont de La Madelaine, and is in the Loire area, in the region around St Etienne.

    I did not know there could be anything interesting in Saint-Etienne , usually, tourists avoid this place

    This is, indeed, a beautiful castle. Great to have friends to take you there.

    I have a friend (here in San Francisco) who's from Saint-Etienne. Now I can say I've seen his ville!

    Nice start. I almost got my first job in Saint-Etienne, a few years ago, but instead I foolishly took on something in Paris. Now i do regret it but it's too late.
