French Countryside

One of the first stops of my trip was in the small French town of Saint Felix Lauragais. Saint Felix is situated on the hill top of the Haute Garrone of the Midi-Pyrenees. It has amazing views of the French countryside as well as the 13th century built Chateau de Saint Felix Lauragais. We went to go see La Vieille Poste Bed and Breakfast on the town square, owned by a friend of the woman who was showing us around. Unfortunately my pictures were erased (still can't talk about it) but here are some of my dear friend Ryan and the website.

The owner outside surrounded by her many potted plants and beautiful rose bushes.


All over the country side, shutters and interior walls are painted this pastel blue/lavandar that comes from a plant in the region.


the entrance to the bed and breakfast was filled with all blue pitchers and containers
