Tiny House in a Landscape

This weeks Tiny House in a Landscape is a photograph by Trey Ratcliff and is titled “Tiny House in France.” Taken in Versailles, France Trey has this to say about where it was taken: So, Versailles is a monstrously huge place. I’m not sure how you could see everything in a day. I chose to concentrate this trip out in the royal gardens, and a confusing walk got me into this place. It’s not exactly secret, but I didn’t know about it until I walked up upon it!

It is called “The Hameau de la Reine”, and is generally known as the Queen’s Hamlet. It was built for Marie Antoinette between 1785 and 1792. It is lovely, and this is only one of the many little places I captured there…

    Hey, I think I had a photo almost like this as a puzzle when I was a kid. Sure would love to see something like this for real.

      From the website:
      “Designed to look “rustic” and secluded in the French countryside, it was in actuality lavishly constructed and located well within Versailles’ grounds.”

    Fantastic! Anyone notice there are 3 live people in the photo? Check the larger images on the website if you can’t find them.

    The first thing I honestly said when I saw this image was “WOW…” It was like seeing a set for a Johnny Depp movie. Either that or like the Weasleys’ home in the Harry Potter series. Really nice.

    This place for not really for the Queen herself, but it was meant to be a small countryside to show her how “real life” was like outside of Versailles.
    The little she knew about farming and peasants came from that place.
