My everyday life in Brittany, France from the roadside: wee stop for you at the Château de La Chapelle-Chaussée, a wee village with the loveliest 16th century château and a charming church, located at a stone's drop from my home. Occupied by the Germans during World War II, the legendary tale says that a golden horse would be buried on the grounds of Château de La Chapelle-Chaussée... The gardens of the château are magnificent and display three Louis XIII pavilions with high roofs, two turrets covered with a dome and topped by campaniles and a huge chestnut tree. via my Facebook page www.facebook.com/oldstonesandgardensvieillespierresetjardins #instagram #picoftheday #photography #chateau #brittany #instapic #castle #roadtrip #road #instagardenlovers #gardens #home #travel #instaflower #homemade #french #frenchstyle #postcard #été #summer #blogger #influencer #instablogger #visiting #instatravel #trip #greenery #tourism #instatraveling

My "everyday life in Brittany, France" phone pix of the day: still in Bécherel, listed as one of France's "Petite Cité de Caractère", a distinction given to villages and small towns with an interesting architectural heritage. It was originally the location of a fort, built in the 12th century of which some vestiges still remain. The fort fell into disuse and disrepair together with the fortunes of the village. New prosperity arrived by the 16/18th centuries with the production of linen and hemp although this industry suffered with the arrival of cheap cotton. These days the village has reinvented itself as a book market and tourist village. As well as the book shops there is a good selection of art galleries, cafés and restaurants to add to the pleasure of your visit to Bécherel. ☺😘 via my Facebook page www.facebook.com/oldstonesandgardensvieillespierresetjardins #instagram #becherel #picoftheday #photography #village #brittany #bretagne #instapic #hill #roadtrip #instagardenlovers #gardens #homes #travel #instaflower #homemade #french #frenchstyle #postcard #été #summer #blogger #influencer #instablogger #visiting #instatravel #trip #greenery #tourism #instatraveling

My "everyday life in Brittany, France" phone pix of the day: still in Bécherel, in the countryside at 20 minutes drive from my home. Known as the "Village of Books", Bécherel is a picturesque small village, with 15 bookstores for around 660 inhabitants, perched on a headland overlooking the gorgeous and peaceful Breton countryside. On the first Sunday of each month, there is also a book market. Add to this event the European Festival of Ancient Greek and Latin in March, for the national "Spring of Poets" weekend, the "Fête du Livre" (book fair) every Easter weekend, the Night of Books in August, "Lire en Fête" (reading festival) in October and Treasures of Bécherel festival in December. You can see why Becherel has become the number one village of books in France. You can walk up by the side of the church to reach the panoramic viewpoint from where you get some lovely views over the surrounding countryside. ☺😘 via my Facebook page www.facebook.com/oldstonesandgardensvieillespierresetjardins #instagram #picoftheday #photography #church #brittany #instapic #homes #roadtrip #road #instagardenlovers #gardens #book #travel #instaflower #homemade #french #frenchstyle #postcard #été #summer #blogger #influencer #instablogger #visiting #instatravel #bretagne #tourism #instatraveling

My "everyday life in Brittany, France" phone pix of the day: still in Bécherel, in the countryside at 20 minutes drive from my home. These photos feature my favourite brocante in the area, La Souris des Champs (the field mouse) where I find many of my antiques. The 3rd photo shows you a view over the garden, from the brocante rear window overlooking the gorgeous Breton countryside. You will also note the 17th century church that sits at one end of a small square which also has some remaining ramparts and the ancient dungeon on one side of it. You can walk up here to get some views over the square.

My "everyday life in Brittany, France" phone pix of the day: still in Bécherel, in the countryside at 20 minutes drive from my home. These photos feature the Logis de la Flanderie, a particularly noteworthy building being the only half-timber building on the main square: it has an attractive mansard roof with 3 dormer windows and dates back to the 16th century. The main square at the centre of Bécherel is surrounded by a selection of stone buildings. Slate roofs and painted window frames add to the charm.

Busy, busy.... making the most or the sunny days to do works in my yard -yet doing so in the early morning, it's so hot in France. This week -and probably next week- I'm painting the two garden-gates we put up by the entrances of our yard past winter. Third coat tomorrow. Then to re-paint all the outside windows, the entry door and the garage door. Oh I forgot all the gutters downpipes too.... phewww 😀😘 via my Facebook page www.facebook.com/mamaisonalafrancaise #instagram #picoftheday #homesweethome #maison #brittany #instapic #gardengate #painting #instagardenlovers #gardens #home #instaflower #homemade #french #frenchstyle #été #summer #blogger #influencer #instablogger #greenery

Bon Dimanche les amis !!! ☺ Remember the hydrangeas I bought the other week? Well I planted them yesterday to complete this year's plan for the garden. I'll plant more of course next spring... 😀☺ Here is a wee tour on two sides of my garden yesterday late afternoon, East first, South then back to East. I also planted another star Jasmine at the angle of East/South. Hope you're having a lovely Sunday! 😘 Via www.facebook.com/mamaisonalafrancaise #instagram #picoftheday #photography #flowers #roses🌹 #instapic #rosebush #agapanthus #instagardenlovers #gardens #home #geranium #lavender #weekend #hydrangea #starjasmine #maison #homedecor #summer #entryway #trees #instaflower #designer #homedesign #homemade #french #frenchstyle

My "everyday life in Brittany, France" phone pix of the day with a lovely château at 10 minutes drive from my home: Château de La Chapelle-Chaussée, a 16th century château. .Listed Historical Monument, Château de La Chapelle-Chaussée was built by the 16th century and remodeled under Louis XIV before getting its south façade rebuilt in the first half of the nineteenth century by a famous architect from Rennes: Louis Richelot. Occupied by the Germans during World War II, the legendary tale says that a golden horse would be buried on the grounds of Château de La Chapelle-Chaussée... The gardens of the château are magnificent and display three Louis XIII pavilions with high roofs, two turrets covered with a dome and topped by campaniles and a huge chestnut tree. The last photo shows you the very road I drive on to reach any area around my home. I'm surrounded by lovely small roads... 😘 via my Facebook page www.facebook.com/oldstonesandgardensvieillespierresetjardins #instagram #picoftheday #photography #chateau #brittany #instapic #castle #roadtrip #road #instagardenlovers #gardens #home #travel #instaflower #homemade #french #frenchstyle #postcard #été #summer #blogger #influencer #instablogger #visiting #instatravel #trip #greenery #tourism #instatraveling

Phewww, I'm exhausted! Today I planted a lot right below the guest room window: 3 lavender plants in a row, one big lavender by the hawthorn tree, 3 agapanthus, 1 trachelospermum star Jasmine on its trellis and 2 hardy geranium. I added a lovely border, at the middle-ages fashion, made of sweet chestnut branches. Voilà ! Have you planted a lot this year les amis? 😊😘 Via www.facebook.com/mamaisonalafrancaise #instagram #picoftheday #photography #flowers #agapanthus #instapic #hawthorne #geranium #lavender #instagardenlovers #gardens #home #starjasmine #vintagehome #weekend #chestnut #maison #treillis #summer #antiques #shabbychic #instaflower #middleage #homedesign #homemade #french #frenchstyle
