2017 France #2

4"x 6"  Original Watercolor - A Painting A Day
France #2

Walking around in Chartres historical area I found lots of wonderful doors.  Loved the color against the old limestone walls.

Day 2
The French really do not do breakfast like we are used to however our B&B put together a wonderful spread for us.  Everything was fresh!  Homemade yogurt with homemade granola!  A smoothie, fresh OJ, bread and croissants baked that morning with homemade jellies all brought up to our room.  I highly recommend Maison Alleurs if you find yourself in Chartres.  Went to the Musee du Vitrail (glass museum) then back to the cathedral just to take it in one more time. Back on the road for a 2 hour drive with a stop for groceries.  You have not lived until you shop not being able to read what you are buying!  It may look somewhat like what you are used to seeing but who knows!  We are now checking into our VRBO home base for 5 nights.  Chateau De La Noue outside the village of Villedomer.  We are staying in a real Chateau!  

Linda just taking it all in at the Cathedral, the beautiful windows did not photo well but you get an idea of size.

Our home!  We rented the wing straight ahead and our host lives in the part on the right. Dating back to the 16th century and in our host, Christine's family for 200 years.
