I found this vintage cottage in the mountain town of Georgetown, Colorado.

Georgetown is a historic landmark district that has been kept largely in its Victorian state. The town definitely has that Hallmark Christmas card feel about it.

In fact, our favorite singer here at House Crazy – John Denver – was so taken with the village that he actually filmed a movie in Georgetown back in 1986 called The Christmas Gift.

The price of this 1880 two-bedroom bungalow is $335,000. That may seem high for a small older home, but keep in mind that Georgetown is just a short drive from world class skiing. And look how perfect it is inside…

The house has southern exposure – which is a big selling point in these high mountain towns surrounded by towering mountain ranges.

I have a pretty one for you today.

Le Moulin du Roc is a unique hotel located in the Périgord region of France. The quaint yet luxurious compound is actually made up of three separate former mill buildings set along the River Dronne.

The mill structures date back to the year 1670!

Now I love purple – lavender, mauve, grape, lilac – whatever. That’s my color.

But when EVERY room is draped and dripping and dragging with purple; well, it’s even a bit much for me.

It’s off the market now, but this little gem was on for sale as recently as this summer for $1,199,000.

Sure it has a stellar location in Montecito, California with over and acre of property. And it even has a historic pedigree – being hand-built and originally owned by members of the Bohemian Mountain Drive Artist Colony. But $1.2 million for a brick hut?

Heck ya, look at this sweet thing!
