French Cottage



I'm currently on holiday at a friends house in the French country side. Next door to their cottage is only one other, this is abandoned. Apparently its owned by an elderly French couple but one of them fell sick so they moved to Paris leaving the cottage empty. From what my friends know someone comes once a year to trim the garden. Luckily for me it was all overgrown when I went there to take pictures so I must have come at the right time of the year. (Big pictures follow)  

1.) The track that leads to the cottage. Everything is overgrown, you can't even see it from the main road.



2.) Front gate



3.) Mail box



4.) It has a huge garden shed



5.) Overgrown path



6.) Nature takes over when humans leave



7.)



8.) A look of the inside through a window



9.)



10.)



11.) Field next door



12.) Into the shed we go...



13.) It was quite dark in there, so my flash on my camera had to do all the work



14.)



15.)



16.) The roof on this part was just about collapsing



17.) Going around the back of the house...



18.) Another look through a window



19.)



20.) Going around this side of the house led to a little shed



21.) Might of been an outhouse at some stage



22.) Or just a tool shed



23.) Going back the other way through the shed



24.)



25.)



26.)



27.) Window shutters



28.) Another inside look.
