Windows and doors, part one

Montrésor is designated as un des plus beaux villages de France (one of the most beautiful villages of France) and, as such, has many picturesque buildings and views. Among them are many small houses on little streets. They're not all maintained to the highest level, but they have a certain quality that makes them pretty.

A boarded up door and a shuttered window with some overgrown plants. Nice!

This one is along the street that rises up from the river valley toward the castle and the church.

  1. Charming, indeed :) I also enjoy a photo with a window with closed shutters, for some reason.

  2. Classic. Would make a beautiful wall hanging.

  3. Oooh, I could look at this photo for a long time if it were hanging on one of my walls. The soft blue with the contrasting grey stone with the pops of color from the reds and greens are so relaxing for me. Even that address plate with the No. 1 as if it were being ranked!!!

  4. You should send Ken down there with his brushes and paint. You two have already created "un des plus beaux hameaux de France"; now let's get to work on this "burg"!

  5. Même le coffret électrique parait être d'époque :-).

  6. So different from anyplace I've lived. It doesn't need to be spiffed up for me (just a repaired door).

Pour your heart out! I'm listening.
