    THIS IS MY IDEA OF A HOME, OLD WORLD CHARM AND SELF CLEANING OVENS, ALONG WITH AN OVEN THAT YOU CAN SEE UNDER TO CLEAN THE FLOORS. I CAN NOT STAND THESE MODERN HOMES, THEY ARE BLAND AND MOST OF THEM ABSOLUTELY UGLY, THE COLORS ARE THE LEAST TO BE DESIRED. AS FAR AS THESE SMART HOMES, THEY ARE IN REALITY EXTREMELY STUPID. THESE MODERN HOMES LOOK ALL THE SAME AND DO NOT HAVE AN HISTORY OR CULTURE WHATSOEVER. MY DEAR KEEP ON BLOGGING, THIS WORLD NEEDS AN IMMENSE AMOUNT OF SANITY, AS PEOPLES BRAINS ARE IN THE INTENSIVE CARE UNIT.

      Michele, I come to your posts for that feeling of peace, quietness and serenity. I feel this one has been disrupted.

    Looks like a house that jumped from some fairytale! 🙂 Love the earthy tones and vintage furniture pieces that make the scenery look so bright and inviting. The greenery all around is lovely and creates the soothing and relaxing feeling. Clash of modern day furniture and antique flair are perfectly blended together and make this home feel like heaven on earth.

    I have been to this area of France several times and nothing in the article is not as awesome as described. Just reading this was a 10-minute “vacation”!
