La quiétude de la ferme

Marie-Antoinette's farm hamlet Versailles
We're back at the farm. Marie-Antoinette's farm at the queen's hamlet that is.

Nous sommes de retour à la ferme. Celle de Marie-Antoinette au hameau de la reine, s'entend.

Lovely pictures, what fabulous buildings. Is this actually located within the palace grounds?

Lois said...

So pretty! I love that roof and the chimneys.

William Kendall said...

Quite a contrast to the palace- and a lot of character, too. Beautiful shots!

Michelle said...

This is my kind of scene.

Carolyn was out at her family farm this weekend. No queens. Real cattle.

I like especially the first photo with what looks like an espaliered shrub or tree outside the windows.

Schöne Fotos von diesem alten Bauernhof, Ciel, besonders das erste gefällt mir gut.
P.S. Ein schwarzes Schaf ist doch überall...

@ Geoff: yes it is! In what we now call 'Marie-Antoinette's estate' at Petit Trianon castle which itself is in the palace grounds!

Je me demande le nombre de visiteurs qui ont la pensee secrete de vouloir venir y passer un week-end...

Sharon Anck said...

These are all great shots! Such a beautiful place right in your back yard.

Looks like a charming place!

The climbing vines must look really neat when they are leaf-covered. Cool farm.

The old buildings are wonderful and I like even more the atmosphere!

Any camera would have field day at this place.

Driving by house late at night
Looking at illuminated windows
What's going on in there?
Do I really want to know?
OMG!
