On Sunday we are meeting up with a few friends at our nearest town, locally it is known as Granit town. We will be treated to a special Christmas Sunday market (30 stalls) that's big for Louvigne du Desert, and the entertainment will be some Breton dancers.
On the subject of Granite and stone, Brittany is well known for its old houses built of stone, with dark slate roofs. I am a bit of an anorak when it comes to looking at buildings, so I am glad that there is plenty to admire on my doorstep so to speak.
I love the details above the windows here, in Fougeres.
PS. I do like modern too.
PPS. What is your favorite building?
The French word for slate is ardoise.
The French word for window or door frame is embrasure
