Vezelay, Shutters, Windows and Doors




For my Five on Friday post this week
I'm going back to our 2013 France trip
when we visited the ancient hill town of
Vezelay.

1.  This is the main road up to the Abbey Church
I thought I would focus on the doors,
windows and shutters of these beautiful old stone buildings.



2.  A new front door for this house.
Adorned with Wistaria which must look
spectacular in Spring.




3.  A variety of shutter styles


4.  A chambre d'hôtes (guest house)
one of several I saw.
Would you like to stay here?
Vezelay has a population of 400+
depending on the season. 
It is situated on top of a hill with wonderful
vistas of countryside France.


5.  I love the architectural details of the windows.
This building has a beautiful patina typical of 
medieval Vezelay and other medieval towns in France.


I'm joining Amy for Five on Friday
Thank you for hosting Amy.

Take care and 
be kind to one another

à bientôt



Shane






Thank you for visiting!

A beautiful collection of photos from Vezelay, Shane. Yes, I would definitely like to spend a month or two living behind one of those doors and enjoying life in a French village. Happy weekend.

Shane, your photos are so lovely to admire. You make me want to pack up and go today! What a wonderful place to visit and can't even imagine how great it would be to live there. I love all the mis-matched features of the buildings. Can't wait to go to your older posts and see more of your trip there.

Hello dear lovely Shane. I love your photo memories! We have stayed in many countryside locations in France including Etratat, Les Eyzies, Chillac, and Honfleur. They all have their special charm and this one is no exception. Just beautiful. Love, Mimi xxx
