Trouville photo diary.

Tuesday, 29 January 2013


On reflecting my time in France last year over forgotten images, I chanced upon these snapshots that were taken in Trouville, an absolutely lovely sea shanty of a fishing village outside Paris. Neighbours with its slightly more pretentious sister town Deauville, one can completely lose the day to the authenticity of the simple village life where bright crimson roses spill over white picket fences and verdant hedges, and traipse along cobblestoned alleys where one Euro pastries and freshly trawled seafood await. 

The slow, languorous pace and the inherent beauty of a simpler life makes it a perfect escapade for the weary traveller ... and it's no wonder that even the canine residents bask indolently in the gentle afternoon sun ...

{P.S. You may have noticed the new blog layout thanks to the creative genius that is Leap Marketing and Design. Hope you love it as much as I do!}

Much love, Mandy. xx

  14. looks like such an adorable place indeed. it actually brought back some memories about the times when I have been to Crete island and all those tiny villages there. it was wonderful :) and I'm pretty sure you have the same feelings towards Trouville. anyway, I really hope I will be able to visit France one day.
