Words to Describe our Front Drive

Posted by Rosie

Friends who visited us in July took this photo of our front drive.  It's the view you get as you leave Eco-Gites of Lenault and I do think it sums up well what a visit here is all about.


Normandy is such a beautiful part of France with many rural areas so unspoilt. Lenault is just one such area.  


With grassy fields and wooded valleys we certainly live in a very green location.


You can't see it in this picture but I am sure you can appreciate with so many trees, hedgerows and fields that the countryside is alive with wildlife.  We see buzzards daily and any number of small birds.  Hares are a common occurrence and we have deer in the local woods.  I wrote a blog post here about 4 rare birds I have seen from our front drive.


We found the old hay turner to the right of the picture when we started to clear the overgrown area that was to become the play area.  I wonder how many miles the horses walked who pulled this lovely machine and what stories they could tell of Normandy gone-by?


Road?  What road?  The nearest road is 300m away so you shouldn't be worried by traffic noise when staying here!  

How many more words could you use to describe our front drive?

I am joining in with MumturnedMom's weekly Prompt linky where this week the prompt was view.


  1. That really is a beautiful view. And, if that's the view you get as you leave, I'm not sure I'd want to go! Thank you so much for sharing with #ThePrompt x

  2. This is such an evocative scene and description. Very beautiful and definitely stirs the imagination and curiosity.


I love receiving comments and I do read every one but if you are simply here to spam me with a link, guess what ... I won't publish it.
