Very stunning photograph Sharon.
I can imagine all of the past history in this wonderful and still beautiful old building. I just think of all the comings and going's of so many people within the 17th-18th Century or even further back in time.
What I like the most is the roof. It appears that it must have had many more rooms within that part of the house.
I also believe that this is generally the atmospheric conditions of France.
Thank you so very much Sharon for allowing me to view this wonderful photo.
