Excellent, Ciel - This looks like it would be nice bridge to cross carrying a basket with a baguette, some good brie or camembert, some salami and a blanket to sit on and have a nice summer picnic just on the other side of the bridge...

Jacob said...

One of our sad memories...we just didn't have time to visit the Petit Trianon...

So, we appreciate your photos of this place very much!

J'adore le charme de ces petits ponts de pierre qui enjambent des petits cours d'eau à la campagne;o)

Merci pour le partage et beau dimanche*******

The estate is so large, one day does not do this wonderful area justice. So much history here to see, I enjoy your bridges!

I wonder how many parks you have there. I love these small stone bridges.

Amazing bridge, I can't believe it in a park! I would imagine horse-drawn wagons passing over this on their way to a picnic.

Randy said...

I would love to see this in person. Lovely photos.

Beautiful as always. Looks to be the ideal spot for a stroll with friends and food.

How exciting, where are you going on your trip? (If you don't mind me asking)

Kaori said...

Gorgeous spot! I think I fell off a bridge like this once ;-)

Ann said...

Louis has a good idea. What about you and us have a picnic and ride on a bicycle. The bridge looks big enough for a bicycle.

Don't watch many French movie, but Chocolat is a good one.

Francisca said...

M la Vache is spot on! Charming bridge...

As you take some great photographs, you might be interested in a photo challenge each month on my blog.

It's called "5 on the fifth" - you either take 5 random pictures of something that happens to you on the 5th of September (or the days leading up to it) or perhaps go for my suggested theme. This month, the theme is The Blues.

A link to past months can be found here:

You add a comment on my blog on the 5th with your name, location and link where the pictures can be found.

You can join the 5 on the fifth Facebook page too:

Cou cou,
C´est un joli petit pont, et en plus il est placé au Trianon!
Je ne connais pas encore Versailles. Je le fais de ta main. Ma dernière fois à Paris, le jour où l´on avait décidé visiter Versailles il s´est mis à pleuvoir, donc, on a décidé de faire une autre chose. C´était bien dommage
Bisous

Such a cute little bridge. It must be neat to walk where kings and queens once trod.

Particularly love that second image.

La première photo aurait pu servir aux reflets du vendredi.. Petit pont plein de charme, comme égaré à la mauvaise époque..

akarui said...

Une preference pour la photo du bas avec ses textures. Une invitation a traverser le pont...

Dave said...

what a great find, your place is a photographer's paradise.

Paulie said...

It looks like it is a footbridge -- not wide enough for carriages or even cars today! Is there water under it or is that a thing of the past? The gardner needs to do some work! Ü

LD said...

Tres tres jolie and so ancient..interesting to imagine how much time and history has passed over this bridge

Tracy said...

I think this looks like the perfect place for a Sunday morning walk. Perfect for the Bridges meme!

EG Wow said...

Sweet and practical. :)

Le pont s'il pouvais parler; il à vue des calèches avec du beaux mondes; pierre tu vois tout et tu reste de marbre.

Looks like a really nice old bridge.
