This was actually the doorbell of Manoir Francis, our last stopover in france before we hit the eurotunnel. Found through a website with an amazing selection of quirky and beautiful looking hotels and guest houses (don’t click the link if you want to keep your brain from drifting off into a french vacance daydream), for €70 a night b&b i really didn’t think it would be as nice as it looked in the pictures. Oh my, was i wrong.
You won’t find an equivalent set of pictures on ryan’s blog this time, because he decided to have a snooze while I took a wander around the gardens.
I’ll say it again: oh my. There were buildings on all four sides of a grassy area, built with chalky stone and red tiled roofs, with rickety wooden doors, old tractors, fading hydrangeas, various rusty ironwork, rambling rose bushes and to top it off, a few ducks and other billed (and non-billed) creatures wandering about.
It wasn’t that big, but there were so many nooks and crannies.
Would you like to come inside? Hmmm, maybe I’ll stretch it out into a separate post…
Whenever I stray from photography for too long, I come by your site for inspiration as you really remind me what is special about it :)
I’m the SEO of http://www.guidesdecharme.com website (wich includes http://www.maisondhotesdecharme.com).
Since last year, our site has changed its domain name, which is now http://www.iguide-hotels.com.
Your site makes a link to the mine, on the page http://shootsknitsandleaves.com/1919 (“Found through a website …”).
Can you change it to points to http://www.iguide-hotels.com, or to the specific URL : http://www.iguide-hotels.com/manoir-francis/marles-sur-canche/tabid/10950/offreid/3b67f790-a493-4b47-9510-8426f4ec90a3/maison-d-hote-de-charme.aspx
Thank you in advance,
Have a nice day.
Thanks for letting me know about the change – I’ve updated the link in the post.
I hope to use the site again in the future!
