Where I am living this month and next.
A centuries-old Swiss house named l'Amandier, the almond tree (there are some out back, in the garden).
It is one of four or five big buildings here at the Community of Grandchamp.
Down a bit is the cellar and the Salle d'Accueil (where Sr. S. is heading).
This Reception is for guests and has for sale books, cards, and nice things made by Grandchamp artisan-sisters.
Some elderly nuns live on the middle floor with an accompanying sister-nurse.
We volunteers, and sometimes a few guests, live on top.
Enlarge the photo to see the house's pretty details.
My room, called la Priere (prayer), on a rare sunny morning.
For a monastic cell, it is quite big.
It has all I need and more.
The bathrooms are down the hall.
