Ménerbes from the eastern side.

Our home village, Ménerbes is now aiming for another classification – we’re already One of the Most Beautiful Villages, and a Village Fleuri (Flower Village), now it seems the objective is to become ‘A Remarkable Village’. The French love classification!

Clinging to the hill side.

What does this mean – a remarkable? According to the specifications, all buildings have ot adhere to strict guidelines in finish, materials and look. For example, heaven forbid you use a new  wall coating, it must be ‘lime wash’ in the correct colour. Many battles between Heritage architects, builders and clients lie around the corner! The purists against the practical and cost conscious. Ouch!
