Thursday Doors: Montpellier, France

The following photos are my contribution to Thursday Doors, a door-lovers group hosted by Norm Frampton.


Last Saturday, my husband, son, and I took a trip to Montpellier (France).   The city is located 12 km from the Mediterranean Sea.  Though I didn’t visit the sea this time, I certainly enjoyed the tourist sights, the botanical gardens, and strolling down intriguing narrow alleyways amidst the city.  And, most importantly, I discovered a plethora of amazing doors.  I found so many that it will take a few weeks to share them all. I was disappointed when the day was over.  I know I’ll need to return.

IMG_0791As October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, I thought I’d share photos of doors that include the pink umbrellas Montpellier proudly places around the city to raise awareness.

If you would like to see more doors from all around the globe, visit Norm’s.  Have a wonderful week ahead.

Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful week ahead.


“During October, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) will mark Breast Cancer Awareness Month with a series of videos, tweets, and infographics focusing on the global burden of breast cancer.”

    I LOVE the pink umbrellas …. especially the one over the street lamp.

    Funny … I’ve been to France several times but have yet to visit the south. If I ever convince my husband to make yet another trip to France, this time I’ll have to suggest the Mediterranean area.

    1. A trip to the Mediterranean area would be well worth the trip! I’m enjoying it so much. Thank you for stopping by, Joanne, and I hope you have a wonderful week ahead! =)

  6. Beautiful images, particularly the one of the umbrellas. There’s a street in Dublin that is similar.

    1. I looked up the umbrellas in Dublin on Anne’s Lane. They are stunning! I’d love to see them someday. Thank you, Jean, for stopping by. =)

    1. Thank you so much! I’ve moved from Asia to France recently and am having a field day (driving my family a little crazy too) finding and taking photos of so many doors!! =)

    Happy to hear from you! So, my guess is you live in Montpellier? Lovely pink umbrellas! But am very curious how you are doing with cultural adjustment? And how expensive is life and how is your housing situation? I know I’m asking a lot, but I expect to move in a couple of years, so we’ll keep our ears open to see what our possibilties are! Hope things are not dreadful for you. Wishing you a lovely eek!

    1. Hi! Actually, I’m living in Perpignan and visited Montpellier last weekend. Adjustments are going well. I’m learning french at the moment so that helps to get to know the culture in a deeper way and get around easier. We rented a flat and I can give you those cost details in a separate note. I hope you have a wonderful week as well! =)

        That must be a smaller town – never heard of it.Maybe write about the cost of living in an email, then you don’t have to watch your words as much. My email is junie15blooms at, and my screen name is Saskia van Buren:) French must be easier after Chinese!

      2. French certainly is easier than Chinese, but not easy. =) I’ll send you a note in the next week or so. Have a lovely weekend!


  9. Handsome door on a lovely building. The pink umbrellas are great. We have a town north of us that has a short street with a rainbow of colored umbrellas hanging above. It always makes me smile. Your pink ones are special because they also result in a wonderful donation to Breast Cancer Awareness.
