The Bouchet seems sleeping in middle of magical Brenne ponds, on one of those buttons.

A button? A kind of little hill, typical of Brenne landscape.

The legend says the famous giant Gargantua created them.

Writer Rabelais’ giant came here: when he walked, some earth stuck under his shoes. So soon, he couldn’t move.

He tried to shake his feet and huge block of earth fell on the soil, creating little hills.
