Chemin des Crèches - the Artist's Crib


Giovanna is an artist who lives at the top of Roquebrune village, opposite the entrance to the medieval Château.

The red sign invites visitors to look through the French windows to the crib she has created but on the day I was there it was impossible to see due to lack of light. Nevertheless, I thought you might like to see her charming house with the lady at the upper window...

Happy New Year everyone!

  1. Wow, what a pretty place!
    I have to admit that I did not see the woman in the window before I had read the text that followed.

    Anyway, HAPPY NEW YEAR, have fun and
    celebrate with style!:-)

  4. An absolutely charming and most welcoming entrance!

    Wishing you and your loved ones (including the dogs, of course) a peaceful and love-filled 2010.

  5. Charming house with lovely blue shutters.

    The fun thing with these extremely creative ideas is that I half expected the crib to be inside the fish this time! Too bad...

    I hope you have a great réveillon Jilly and I wish you all the best for 2010 !


    (I'm putting seeing you again on my own wish list for next year and I reckon I have a fair chance to make it :-)))

  6. Hi,
    I just wanted to tell you how much I have loved looking out for your daily pic over the last few weeks especially all the cribs they are so beautiful. I always love a nativity scene. I found your blog by accident as I am visiting Menton in April I thought I'd check out some pics.

    It looks very beautiful can't wait to see it for myself. Happy New Year.

  7. Nathalie, a crib within the fish would have been fun! And yes, the red carpet will be laid out for you, as per usual, when you come to stay. Can't wait!

    Sure you'll have a lovely time, Electricwitch, you have chosen a nice time of year to arrive. Thanks for kind words.

  10. A wish list instead of resolutions for 2010 sounds like a great deal of fun. May your New year be one of great happiness, filled with love and laughter.
