The French Farmhouse

(1994)
Its History, Construction, And Regional Styles
A non fiction book by

 
French farmhouses are among the finest examples of vernacular architecture in the world. Springing from relatively narrow sources their popularity has escalated and the farmhouse now rivals cathedrals and chateaux as a major tourist attraction. Inspired by her own experience of restoring a farmhouse in south west France, Elsie Burch Donald aims to give the reader an understanding of France's many regional styles, each with its own distinctive character and charm. She describes how French farmhouses were built and furnished, the life that was lived in them and their very intimate connection with agriculture and the land. Colour photographs and illustrations are featured in this book for everyone with a vested interest - or hope of one - in France.
