Douce France.


Week before last we were going to France for a long weekend. But when we were there my husband got ill and we went home again. So no photographs of lovely little  villages I planned to make but just some of the beautiful Bed and Breakfast” Moulin de la Pommeraye” we stayed in and some I made from the car through Belgium and northern France. 
The B&B is an old watermill, situated in the village Pommeraye in the Haute Marne ,southern part of the Champagne region. Forests and green hills all around.The river the Marne runs through the garden and the grounds. It is so beautiful there.

Wat ontzettend jammer dat je man ziek werd toen jullie in Frankrijk waren. Jullie hadden daar een geweldig adresje zo te zien, echt Frans. Daar wil je toch wel elke morgen je ontbijtje nuttigen, in zo'n sfeervolle tuin.

Gelukkig dat je toch nog een paar mooie foto's hebt kunnen maken.

Bedankt voor je lieve reactie op mijn post!

Ik wens je een fijne week! Liefs, Ingrid

Hello dear Riet
I hope your husband is feeling better now. It's always good to be home when we're not feeling well.

Your photos are wonderful and have given me a taste of France which I love so much - merci!

Take care both of you
hugs

Hello Riet
I hope your husband has recovered and feels better. A small glimpse of France is enough for me to think this country should be on my bucket list.
Thank you for linking to Mosaic Monday.

Hello Riet, The bed and breakfast and river are so pretty. What a blessing to be able to just jump in the car and have a long wknd in France! For us in the U.S., it'd be a long flight and probably a good amount of cash to visit! Hope your husband is feeling better.

Ohhh lieve Rietje,

Wat een ellende zeg dat je man
ziek is geworden terwijl jullie
net in Frankrijk waren. Hoop dat
het inmiddels alweer een stuk beter gaat of liever nog dat het GOED
gaat nu.

Het was wel een PRACHTIGE lokatie
die jullie hadden uitgezocht.
Zo mooi die tuin en de ligging
daarvan. Uniek toch een rivier
dwars door de tuin heen.
Hoop dat jullie binnenkort deze
mini vakantie nog een keer kunnen
overdoen. Prachtige foto's van
mooi Frankrijk.

Geniet van een fijne nieuwe week,
en ik stuur je een mailtje......

Veel liefssssss,
Josephine

Beautiful trip while it lasted; I certainly hope your husband is better now.

Hello Riet. I've neglected visiting your blog lately so have just read your recent posts of your summer travels. I really enjoyed the photos of the beautiful countrysides you have toured. Today's post is so interesting and the B&B you stayed in is beautiful. I hope your dear husband is feeling better now. Have a lovely week and take care. Pamela

Lovely shots.
If I remember correctly, doesn't "douce" mean "gentle"? Many of the tones and colors you share here are just that.
