Ma cabane...




Log cabins? Yes but with columns if you please. In the palace grounds.

Des cabanes mais attention, avec des colonnes, dans le parc du château.

Great shot and very unique facilities.

Darryl and Ruth : )

Very interesting. I don't recall seeing these but we didn't get everywhere, either. Both are certainly necessary!

Re your comment on Ocala: I've been to that barbershop 2 X. I won't go back. They really aren't as good as they think they are!

I thought for a moment we were having a look inside the men's bathroom (which seemed astonishingly capacious). What an intriguing capture, Ciel.

Bizarre! A column made of a tree trunk with a scroll capital. I'm thinking some Greek architect is kinda freaking out? I like the contradiction.

akarui said...

Interessant cette architecture faite en rodins de bois.

Jack said...

This is pretty unexpected, Ciel. Most things are very elegant at Versailles. I wonder who got the idea to install rustic log cabins.

Regina K said...

I must say I never expected log cabins in Versailles. How fun to see them.

Kay L. Davies said...

Amazing! I love the Greek style columns made of unpeeled logs. The Mediterranean meets the wild wild west!

It looked like it had a thatched roof on the portal. Seems to have everything you need.

Stephanie said...

Rustic and elegant at the same time!

Definitely not what you'd find in cowboy country.

Randy said...

Now that's different.

I wouldn't expect anything less than a 'stylish' cabana in Versailles!!

Small City Scenes said...

very different. Not what one would expect. MB

Maybe I am on the wrong blog... No, this is really VDP!

JM said...

Royal log, bien sur! :-)

Kaori said...

This looks like part of the Indiana Jones ride at Disneyland. Very cool.

Birdman said...

That's a little surprise.

Thérèse said...

Cabines versaillaises et "royales" comme le dit Bergson! Le concept "toilettes" n'était malheureusement pas connu à l'époque...

Cezar and Léia said...

Loree said...

Oh wow. Who would have thought of having columns on a log house??

Diane AZ said...

Oh what fun, I love the columns!

Magpie said...

What a fun twist on log cabins! I especially appreciate the grandeur of the "toilettes".

Francisca said...

Is this Versailles? I don't have to like it, do I? Kay summed it up best: classical meets wild west. But it doesn't work for me. There's mix 'n match and there's mix 'n mismatch. :-D

Bekannte Architektur mit außergewöhnlichen Baumaterialien, warum nicht :)

Dina said...

Well I never! Never saw logs used in this type of construction.

Sharon Van Lieu said...

Wonderful and totally unexpected.
