Almost a year later, I still have fond and vivid memories of France. . .
~ ~ from the time we stepped off the plane in Paris . . .
~ ~ ~ ~ to the time we had to bid farewell to the breathtaking countryside of Normandie.
Today, I want to share with you our first experience in Normandy.
When we all arrived, I our eyes were opened wide and our jaws dropping to the floor.
We arrived at the Le Clos De Grace . . . located in Honfleur and it was exquisitely “graceful”
Now you can see just why our eyes flew wide open and our jaws dropped to the floor!
The gracious French Bed and Breakfast and Spa is located in this wonderful town of Honfleur.
This is the building in which we actually stayed . . .
~ ~ the main house is actually the residence of the owners . . a very nice family.
From the main entrance of the estate . . .
~ ~ you would enter through these gates to get to the buildings of the guest quarters.
Another guest quarter building and if my memory serves me right, it is also where the spa is.
Another view. . .now look at the window . . . doesn’t it look like there is a “person” there?
~ ~ or a “shadow” of one . . . Could this be a twilight zone moment?
What an amazing “awning” . . . and there were gorgeous hydrangeas throughout the property.
~ ~ Obviously, they do not have a deer problem!
This building was under a renovation process…I believe it is slotted for an “event center”
We were able to see this building from the windows of where we were staying.
And were able to get a close up view of the incredible thatched roof . . .
~ ~ with an amazing garden at the peak of the roof!!!
This is the rear view of the building . . as you can see the gorgeous landscaping everywhere!
While strolling though the grounds of this estate . . .
~ ~ I felt as if I were strolling through the most charming and quaint town.
Isn’t the side of this building so beautiful???
Another bucolic scene of this property . . .
~ ~ the softscapes and hardscapes were just magnificent.
There was so much renovation going on . . .
~ ~ I can’t imagine how things look now after a year.
Lots of firewood needed for their many fireplaces!
They were also working on a fabulous outdoor area for entertaining.
So you can see how hard it was to leave this place of incredible beauty!
I hope to return one day soon . . . with hubby in tow this time . . .
~ ~ so he can see how much I love this place, and the charming region of Normandie.
Hope you enjoyed this tour of the elegant estate.
I plan to present the amazing interiors soon.
I wish you all a wonderful day!!
