All that red is just beautiful! and I love the wagon wheels and flowers on the side of the building! How wonderful that your ancestors ran this place!
Lisl: It probably looked less colourful then, Elizabeth
i hope the wheels above the bench are securely fastened! i like this place with the bright roof and the coat of arms, Lisl.
Lisl: It looks very inviting, but it is always too soon on my walk to stop for refreshments
Oh, how splendid, Lisl, especially with that red ivy (?). You can be proud of your heritage there!
Lisl: I love my Dorset ancestry, Ginnie
Rho...magnifique , j'aime beaucoup la vigne rouge !
Lisl: It looks particularly good at that time of year, Claudine
It's touching to know that your ancestors lived and worked there. This house is beautiful, it has many charms. I love old English houses.
Lisl: English houses and inns are so many and varied, Marie - I understand why you love them

Oh, Lisl. This is just a treasure found. What a wonderful scene this is and I think this place is captured many times. The red is just beautiful.
And to know that family lived and worked here, wow.
Lisl: Yes - it makes it special, Astrid, thank you
Quelle jolie maison ! La vigne vierge est magnifique.

I briefly had to think where this was but then I soon realised that I've past here dozens of times. I've even had a drink there on a couple of occasions. I love the colour of the creeper taking over the roof.
Lisl: I suspected you might know this one, Alan
What a wonderful pub it looks. do you take a discount?
Lisl: Always for friends, Bill

Do your ancestors come from France?
Lisl: One branch of my tree comes from Navarre, Philine
Superbe ce bel ensemble architectural, bien conservé, bien entretenue !
Mes félicitations à  la famille Collier !
Lisl: Many thanks, Jean. Most of the rest of the Collier Family were farmers

That is amazing Lisl. Did you always know that or did you find it out for yourself.
Lisl: I found it out when I researched that branch of the family, Chad

The centre of the village?
Lisl: I am sure it is in more ways than one, Richard
What a lovely old pub, filled with character, where abouts in Dorset is it Lisl?
Lisl: This is in Studland, Brian
If this isn't English charm, nothing is! How wonderful to have such a personal connection to such a delight.
Lisl: Yes, I was so surprised to find that out - in an area I had always loved and didn't know I had a connection

It is a lovely looking building. It is interesting to know your ancestors lived and worked there.
