We have a great friend who had the vision and wisdom to purchase a 300 year old farmhouse in in the French countryside. To me this place is a palace. Cream colored stone walls, multiple solid out buildings, acres of land with multiple fruit trees and rooms so large you can park a truck in them.
The area is totally flat with limited car traffic, within easy reach of a cute town that fosters a friendly community. Has a wonderful Bread bakery and patisserie that produces warm crusty bread in the morning as well as the most delicious pastry. The sort of stuff that one only dreams about.
It looks like their version of a black and white cookie oddly enough is called a divorce. Struck me as funny.
Sunflower and wheat fields dominate the horizon as far as the eye can see making for a truly majestic scene. Sunsets are golden painting this place as a paradise on earth.
