A Montreuil

Versailles' Montreuil neighbourhood is a calm, residential area with pretty houses... and flowering horse chestnuts!
----------------------------
Le quartier de Montreuil est résidentiel et calme, avec de jolies maisons... et des marronniers en fleurs !

The setting has a lot of charm. The pink flowers and blue tile on the house compliment each other.

I suppose I could force myself to live there if I had to...

What would it take? When could I move in? I want to live in France!

Looks very pretty, especially with all those flowering horse chestnuts.

I have never seen pink horse chestnuts. They are amazing. I would love to look out my window and see those flowers.

I love the detailing on French houses. The tiles are stunning!

An idyllic neighbourhood I think. The perfect place to live maybe?

The horse chestnut trees in our area are in bloom right now. I certainly haven't seen a single pink on here. That is beautiful.

Dream house in a quartier de rêve.

I think the red flowering ones are American horse chestnuts. They dont produce conkers though.

The tile work is very appealing, adds much to the home.

On en viendrait presque à aimer la région parisienne...;-)

Great angle! I like blooming chestnuts - Nowy Sacz is now full of them:)

Ah Montreuil ! Ma fille avait une chambre chez l'habitant dans ce type de petite maison jolie comme tout (il n'y avait plus d'internat à l'époque au Lycée La Bruyère et elle était interne externée, qu'en est-il de l'internat aujourd'hui ?)
C'est beau aussi les marroniers roses en fleur, quoique ce ne soit pas un arbre dont je raffole.
