Yes, I live in Mandres-les-Roses, such called since between WW I and II because there were a lot of flowers producers. It came to almost a full stop with the "oil shock" (1973), greenhouses becoming far too expensive to maintain. We're 23km SE of Paris. We've been here for over 30 years now, and the village has changed a lot, with lot of "housing development". Lot of car traffic too, noise; well I suppose it's the same everywhere.
The village appeared in the Middle-Age, before it was only a forest halt for shepperds, though there's traces of megaliths around.
Our house is in the oldest part of the village, it must have been built circa 1830, but it's far from being the older one.

That's very interesting! Thanks for the details. It's just a lovely spot.

So are all these roses in YOUR garden? =>}
