The village of Herbes



L'Herbe is one of the eleven villages that make up the municipality of Lège-Cap-Ferret, located on the east side of the peninsula of Cap-Ferret. The nearest parking is on the Boulevard de la Plage, and access to the village only on foot, the passage of vehicles being restricted to residents only.
What strikes when we approach the village, these are these colors. Each house has different shades, there is no rule in the matter, and for good reason: it is said that for a long time, we use the funds of paint pots that serve to paint the boats on the shutters .
