Adorable French Cottage

I am a lover of blue and mostly what is known as a Provence blue. It's a color that I'm drawn to, soothes my inner woman. So, when I look for homes for sale in France - it's the ones with blue touches that I enjoy most. Now, this is kind of funny, because many many homes in France - especially the country side - which is my preference most always have those touches of blue.

While in Basque Country last summer I would frequently drive from Donostia (San Sebastian, Spain) to St. Jean de Luz and to Biarritz, France. I never found it dull with the continuity of white walled homes and either cobalt blue and or red shutters.

French homes for sale touts this cottage as being "set in a beautiful and very peaceful countryside location." It's only a two minute drive from Mael Carhaix. It's got a spacious open plant combining lounge, diner and kitchen. Don't you wish you could see inside because it says it has a "stunning stone turned staircase to the first floor where there are three good sized bedrooms landing with space to create a second...whatever. I'm getting all kinds of ideas...space to create sanctuary to quiet the rush of winds of life.

This home has outside gardens. I'm liking that one. It has matured trees, shrubs and flowers. Can you picture this with me?

Oh, the opening to this charming cottage? It touts a double opening with solid wood and part glazed windows on the doors that lead into the lounge. Wouldn't you LOVE to see this one? Me too. Oh well, and I apologize, I didn't save the link to the "for sale page."
