Maison Rustique

Maison Rustique first caught my eye in 2007.


What a charming home set behind its grape stake fence and Carmel Stone arch. So, of course, I walked closer.

Yellow roses bloomed over the gate and I was smitten.

I loved the huge window and the front dutch door with its arched top.

Tres charming.

This trip, I revisit the cottage.


Still charming.

I peek over the side fence and see the path winding through a tiny garden.

I read at one time that this was being rented but could not find that again.

    So beautiful and beguiling, as always! Have any of these lucky Carmel Cottage residents ever seen you gazing wistfully over their garden gate and invited you in for a tour?
