To celebrate let's go over to France to a beautiful early 18th century stone building called La Bastide that once produced wine and eau de vie for Napoleon’s troops. The house is on a hill at the edge of a village with lovely views from all the windows and doors. Situated in Gard, South West France, between Montpellieir and Nimes, it is only 30 minutes away from sandy beaches.
The huge beams have been left exposed in the main living area. In some rooms the 14 metre high ceilings give the impression of entering a cathedral. Floors are sand coloured polished cement interspersed with flag-stones.
I have linked this post over at Melissa's The Inspired Room at Jessica's A Few of my Favourite Things and at Miss Mustard Seed's blog too. Thanks for hosting girls!
