Secret cottage

While on holiday with my wife in Saint Germain de Montgommery near Vimoutiers in Normandy, France, I had seen this farm just down the road where we were staying and had not taken much more notice of the group of buildings.

A few days later walking past the farm with my dog, a cottage caught my eye in front of the farm. I’d not seen this building before now set back from the road and hidden by the trees. In the late morning sunlight there was a clear reflection in the pond of this beautiful old building, a perfect shot.
