Wooden beamed ceilings at La Colombe d'Or
One of the many amazing things about La Colombe d'Or is the multiple extraordinary beamed ceilings that lend the homespun peasant chateau atmosphere to room after room, including here above, the ceiling in the open sitting room on the third floor solarium with the wall of windows making this a perfect sun room. Then below is the arched wooden beams of the breakfast nook off the firepit area of the main dining room on the ground floor. This patio area overlooks the swimming pool, and is a frequent gathering point in the late morning over coffee, eggs and newspapers.
