Colourful houses in Alsace...

Maisons Alsace
The region Alsace in North of France is very famous for its wine, hills and food! However I do love it for its colourful and happy-making houses!

One could see that most of the owners simply love to decorate and make their own house cute and beautiful...Not only tons of flower pots make the drive through the small villages pleasant for the eyes, its simply fantastic to enjoy the different colours of the facades of the beautiful timbered houses.

On our way we passed by this bus stop painted with pictures of badgers!

Jana,

These photos look like they could have come right out of a story book. It looks like such a welcoming and inviting place. It brings a smile to my face. :)

Thanks so much for sharing.

They're like doll houses! Love 'em! If only we can have houses like that in tropical countries like ours!

Alsace een mooi gebied,maar het is lang geleden dat ik daar was (meer dan 40 jaar) intussen is zeker veel veranderd maar de mooie, lieve huizen zijn gebleven, zoals ik aan je leuke foto's zie. Fijne zondag Jana, groetjes Dietmut

Om echt vrolijk van te worden.
Ben dol op dit soort huisjes en zo fotogeniek. Maar ook de spiegeling in de zonnebloem is heel erg fraai.
Groetjes Cristien.

The architecture in Alsace is lovely - homely and pretty. I love the way you have captured one of them in the sunglasses - a novel approach.

Hi, dear Jana! Sorry for my absence but I renovated my apartment and I had a lot of things to do. I went to Alsace during Christmas' markets 3 years ago and I liked very much its countries. Very nice shots. Ciao. Erika
