We have just returned from an amazing trip to Ornans, France.
We visited friends who have a summer home there.
I don't know what I was expecting but this was a spectacular town built along the Loue River.
Some of the homes, including the one we visited, are 400-500 years old. They must maintain the original exteriors but the interiors are all updated beautifully.
Spectacular rocky cliffs and castles overlook the town.

The surrounding countryside is a painter's dream
Gorgeous woods nearby

|And of course, amazing food!|
We were also fortunate to visit the Gustave Courbet Art Museum. Not only was his collection amazing but the building housing the collection was as unique as any I have seen.
They built around his original home with a very contemporary style complimenting the old walls of his home. Portions of the building have a glass floor looking down on the Loue River.
This was an awesome trip for us. It will be hard to top.
