Favorite Photo Friday- Brantomé France

by wired2theworld on June 4, 2010

Moulin de l'Abbaye Hotel

Today’s featured photo was taken during a trip to France in 2008.

This photo is from the picturesque town of Brantomé in the Dordogne region. For some reason I didn’t use it anywhere on the website, even though it’s one of my favorites. The building is a hotel and restaurant which sits in the middle of the river that runs through the town. I love the colors; the bright blue shutters, the red and yellow leaves, the dark green water. I would have enjoyed staying there, or even have lunch, but we were just passing through. A little research reveals this to be the Moulin de l’Abbaye Hotel. The hotel turns out to be a bit of a budget-buster, but the rooms and the food look pretty amazing. Maybe someday when I win the lottery we’ll return and stay there.

Beautiful photo. The colors are really amazing. Reminds me a bit of the Dutch countryside outside of Amsterdam. Lovely!

What a great idea! You have more than enough and more to come. Having the pictures as a wallpaper is a bonus.

I can tell why that photo is one of your favorites. Great photo. It looks like a very interesting place to check out. Too bad it turns out that places like that can often end up costing the most.
