The wise man built his house upon the...er...


We were rather taken by this unorthodox use of space in the French town of Vernon, near Giverny, whilst on our 'olidays.

I can only imagine the application for planning permission.

Looking rather like it has blown in from Kansas, it balances precariously across two of the remaining piers of a bridge that has long since ceased to function as such. Proof that nature abhors a vaccuum? Or that building regs in France have always loosened up considerably after the second bottle of wine has been opened?

Either way, if you're a pigeon, this is THE place to be in Vernon.
