Happy Thursday! This is such a beautiful and generous family home, with six bedrooms, three and a half baths, close to the beaches of Normandy, France. I love the proportions of the rooms, the huge windows, and the graceful staircase. There’s a beautiful garden with fruit trees, and an ancient boulangerie on a corner of the property that could be converted to guest house! This is very much a dream property for me.
