Hello friends and colleagues, today I offer you a scene of daily life in a beautiful street of the Alsasian village of Turckheim.
I hope you like it, then a few letters about the villa.

Turckheim (in German Türkheim) is a French town and commune, located in the department of Haut-Rhin, in the Alsace region.
City since 1312, it was one of the ten Alsatian imperial cities that allied in the Alsatian Decapolis.
In its vicinity Turenne obtained on January 5, 1675 a great victory over the forces of Leopold I of Habsburg, Frederick William I of Brandenburg and Charles IV of Lorraine.
