Lots of Snowy Photos....Eymet


I thought that I would share some photos of a very snowy Eymet with you. The village looks so pretty covered in snow......



It is as if time has stood still, the village resembles the old post cards of over 100 years ago...



Love the light, everything seems almost pure, the colours pop out at you....


This is one of my favourite shots, it is the garden of a local chateau situated in the heart of the village...


It is for sale and I think that it would would make a fabulous hotel/spa.....


This is the bridge which leads from the Chateau (situated on the left of thisphoto) into the village....the river is currently frozen with most of the ducks and swans taking refuge under the bridge as this is the only part of the river that is not frozen solid!


Looking across the river to the backside of the church....


A very snowy and peaceful village square.....


Entrance to the old chateau where events take place in the summer.....

Exterior of the old chateau..........looking rather solid.

And last but by no means least, a photo of the exterior of Maison No. 20 with lots of lovely pure snow in front of the house....



Amicalement from a very cold and still snowy Eymet, Leeann x

  2. Bonjour Leeann. I suspect Eymet looks beautiful year round, but you are right, the village is just so peaceful- looking in the snow. It is just as if the internet, and automobiles, had never happened. Thank you for sharing with us. Watch where you step out there! Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

  3. I agree - it's like stepping back in time. I have only seen snow in France in the Pyrenees. When I lived in the south-west winter was fairly mild. I love the photo of the bridge with the pretty street lamps and Maison No 20 with the fresh snow.

  12. The snow makes everything so pretty, but I'm sure it's a beautiful place to live any time of year. I love that turquoise gate.

  14. Your pictures are beautiful. I live in sunny California--we get no snow where I live, by the sea. Enjoy your blog so much.
