The quiet of an abandoned farm, in Normandy

A midweek post so no match today, we just wanted to share some photos of an old abandoned farm we found, along an overgrown lane, in the Orne, Normandy.

The farm buildings form a square, now around a meadow. View back out towards the road.

  1. We are in an old longere near Orbec. The last in what was the hamlet of Lieu de la Vallee. Integrated into the metropolis that is known as Le Chatel (6 houses in total!!!). We recently made the permanent move to our house. I am now working as an Agent Commercial for an International immobilier. So I am sure I will unearth some very interesting properties and stories. Enjoy your site. Really interesting. Why do people drive through Normandy?
