In the small town of Cadalen, in Southwestern France, these owners kept the walls, after the roof caved in on the old house, and made it into an inner courtyard. The garden looks out on a twelth century portal in the back.
Gorgeous. It reminds me of Crete and Hania in particular where they’ve kept many old buildings that way. They use them as inner courtyards as well, but they also house restaurants, bars, clubs and theatres of course. Some of the walls there date back to the Ottoman occupation around the 1650’s and perhaps earlier… which I guess is young compared to the 12th century portal you’re showing us here!
I’ll send along another view of the portal itself, soon. xxx
As I saw this shot of the portal , I was wishing to go inside and take more there… and here I read you are planning to do just that ; Felicitaciones
Thanks, Zeev. I’ll post it soon.
