Une cour privée



2012 Oct 7 Sun am_49DSC_8887


a private courtyard


I hesitate to call this a courtyard as it should qualify as a full park.  
The beautiful wrought iron gates were open 
and I only stayed a few minutes.  


There are small private courtyards all over Paris 
but this one could not be seen from the street 
and was revealed to be larger than I could imagine.






Avenue du Général Leclerc
74014, Paris

A very impressive "courtyard" Genie. I could sit down under one of those trees anytime.

What a gem. I'd love to be a 'passe muraille' and check out he inside of the house :)

I would have called it a park, too. Nice place!

It doesn't look like a "private" place.

You never know what is behind doors or gates.

Les jardins de l'hopital La Rochefoucauld ?

Alain, this is almost next door - Villa Adrienne

Corine, qu'est-ce que c'est

We met Rosemary, Aussie in France, today at Palais Royal for a visit. She also has a daily city blog, Blois Daily Photo.

We walked through e Delherin and shot many photos on our way to lunch with Paris friends. The rain started late in the afternoon but only slowed us down a bit.

More tomorrow....

Wonderful capture of a beautiful, peaceful looking place!! Hope your week is going well, Genie!!

my first comment ever : a passe muraille is basically somebody who can go through walls (coming from a short story from Marcel Aymé, and thereby anyone who sneaks in a private place to take a peek... what you did, didn't you ?

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

Marylène, thank you kindly for your reply. You have solved the mystery for me and now I will have to read the short story. You may email me directly if you prefer not to comment. I hope that you will drop by again often.

Bises,
Genie
