Good Wednesday morning! This half-timbered 16th century cottage in the north of France is so lovely, cozy, and charming, and the views are wide-open, extraordinary. The home contains three bedrooms, a massive stone fireplace in the center of the house, and several ancient cave homes dug into the hillside in the back and linked to the house, one of which contains a bread oven! An amazing piece of history and a lovely place to live.
