Pictographic – Masevaux

From Paris we journeyed aboard a train to Mulhouse, and from there hired a car and traveled to our home for 10 days, Bourbach-le-Haut

One of the nearby towns, the perfectly picturesque Masevaux

The entire town is like a movie set, small quaint houses, shops and cobbled streets

In the town centre, is the Hostellerie Alsacienne.

Everything about the place is fabulous; from the Star of David chairs, to silver cutlery, and mouth-watering meals; fantastic enough to warrant a second visit before leaving the region

The above is the Trout Amande

And the Duo de Poisson

The whole town is like a movie set

The silence of the midday break shattered by our touristic presence

The town hosts a variety of  activities, from flower contests and organ festivals,  to The Passion Play

The flowers are not yet in full bloom, but still breathtaking.

The midday day break is from 12:00 – 14:00 daily.

You will find all shops closed, with only restaurants welcoming customers.

We found this affected particularly the smaller towns.

The spring flowers creep from behind the wood pile

Almost everything one sees it photo-worthy

Citizens are rewarded for beautiful gardens – Concours maisons fleuries

A couple of weeks later and we would have seen even more glorious colours

But all in all, Masevaux is easily one of the prettiest towns

Adding to its appeal, is the surprising small number of tourists about town
