Ma maison préférée, rue de la Paroisse


Yesterday I promised I would show you the building that was reflected. I think it's absolutely gorgeous.

Hier je vous ai promis de vous montrer l'immeuble qui était reflété. Je le trouve sublime, rien que ça.

Such beautiful detail is hardly seen anymore. Il a l'air très charmant.

Yes, it is gorgeous.

Yes, I agree that is a very attractive building.

effectivement une belle demeure en pierre de Versailles.

Jacob said...

It is very nice. Maybe we should buy an apartment there? We could spend several months every year enjoying its beauty.

Oh, yeah, it would take a lot more euros than I could put together!

I've always wondered about the dormers on the top of so many French buildings...are there rooms up there used as living space or storage?

Madame Cieldequimper, you take gorgeous pictures yourself.

Les barreaux aux fenêtres ne doivent pas être d'époque....Je comprends l'utilité mais bon .....

Le premier que j'vois sortir sa parabole, je m'en sers comme cible.

Si tout était encore construit dans ce style, c'est vrai que ça nous éviterait de passer à côté de bien des horreurs en dalles de béton !

Paulie said...

And I so agree! So many lovely details.

VP said...

I agree, this is a gem of a house!

Louis la Vache said...

«Louis» understands why you like it so much!

Certes, elle est jolie , sobre et elegante,très classique, mais pourquoi celle-là plutôt qu'une autre?..Qu'est-ce qui fait que TOI, tu aimes CELLE-Là?..(question purement theorique, je te rassure..:)

Gefällt mir gut !
Pourrais vivre là dedans !

Serline said...

Indeed, it's a gorgeous building. But i still prefer the reflection version of it more... Have a blessed weekend!

EG Wow said...

I agree that it's a beautiful building with all that lovely ironwork!

Jacob said...

Another sleepless night? What? You don't believe in Advil PM? Or Motrin PM? Or Tylenol PM?

Anyway, the top windows: Thanks for the info. But are those areas in use today in most buildings? Like for bedrooms or office space or quilting rooms, etc.?
