Saumur Warnings and Dangers: 2 reviews and 6 photos


We came across this funny sign in German. It reads:
Vorsicht, freilaufende Hunde ausser Besichtingungsperiode.
Wann Hunde kommen, flach auf den Boden legen und auf Hilfe warten. Viel Gluck

That means: outside opening hours there are dogs on the loose. When dogs come, lie flat on the ground and wait for help. Good luck!

That must be a joke. And if not, you know what to do!

Which reminds me... this wasn't in Saumur. It was just outside Saumur on the north river bank of the Loire at Chateau de Boumois which belongs to nearby village Saint Martin-de-la-Place.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
