Dining outdoors surrounded by the beauty of nature is something the French love. Special attention is given to having a beautifully elegant, no matter how quaint spot in which to enjoy breakfast, a glass of wine or an evening meal with friends and loved ones.

The below pics are swimming pools or "piscinas" located at French Country farmhouses and chateaus. I love how this manmade luxury often blends beautifully into the luxurious French landscapes.
