summer trip 2017 // 5

Today I'm going to show you some photos from Figeac, and from the house we rented.

Figeac is a town in south-western France, with beautiful old buildings, and a museum (the Champollion Museum) that we visited, dedicated to Jean-François Champollion, known primarily as the decipherer of Egyptian hieroglyphs. We could walk (literally) on a large reproduction of the Rosetta Stone !

As for the house we rented, it was a beautiful old barn that had been renovated with lots of taste & love. The barn was built in 1872, so the renting place was called "le 18_72" ! This is a drawing of the place, seen from one side. The photo coming after was taken from the other side.

It was slightly isolated, which was what we were looking for (for the peacefulness), and surrounded with fields or woods. Just perfect.

You can visit their website here if you want to see more photos !

We saw lots & lots of birds, but my best photo captures are from this guy (that I haven't identified). I slightly cropped the photos in order to have a little close-up on it.

I hope you've enjoyed these photos.

If you don't have the time to comment, please would you like to hit the ♥ button, so that I know someone still reads my ol' little journal. (besides me, that is). Thank you from the bottom of my heart !
