An over night fire burns parts of my beloved Historic Dinan in France ... Shop Signs & Shop Fronts are a complete curiosity & work of art in France
I am not sure but I do believe that no one was hurt ...thank goodness.
I just love them each one a piece of beautiful art.
These are some of the signs in my favorite town to visit when I am in France, Dinan..a medieval town..
This isn't the greatest of photo's but it made me smile ...it's of a Hotel advertising bedrooms with the silhouette of a woman running up the stairs to bed ...so cute and sure to make you smile
The Dwelling of the Monks
Butter and Cheeses ..Yum !!
This house is one of my favorites in Dinan and it is at the top of the most incredible cobbled street that leads down to the River Rance ..
Le Mont Saint Michel
Bakery and Pastries
Hardware and Ironmongers
I have eaten many a good meals in this great restaurant in the incredible Le Mont Saint Michel , a very ancient monastery on a tiny island that has been there since the 8th century, AD ..it had red gingham tablecloths the last time I ate there
A gorgeous sign for the local French Pancake Shop
And one for the library book shop
Below is part of the main street of Dinan, France
As you can see it's very old and beautiful and looks like it's just out an old Three Muskateer's movie
The old town is most atmospheric, crammed full of half timbered buildings dating from the 13th and 14th centuries, with cobbled rambling streets all carefully restored and preserved. Interspersed throughout the old town are numerous individually owned cafes, bars, restaurants and the colourful shops of butchers, bakers and today scented candle-makers. The shops of florists, artisans, craftsmen and weavers mingle with the ubiquitous gift and post card shops that thrive in any town that is a magnet to tourists.
Monsieur Vannes and his Wife ..so cute
Of course being a cat lover I couldn't leave this one out
Hope you enjoyed my tour of French shop signs
I will take lots of photos of other ones when I am in France this Summer ...they are such works of art
Below is a sign for a sewing shop that does alterations for women only it seems
Merci d'être venus et en regardant mes signes
