    After this nice trip in the lovely region we have to move somewhere else.
    Then, were can you see this house?

      Nobody even venture a guess in a week or more? OK I'll start the process.
      I guess this is what may be called Boutique Hotel and that we are somewhere in North West France?

        Hi Ombugge
        No it's not an hotel.
        France is not correct even though there is link.
        Anyway when you say "N-W France" you are not far the solution.

          OK, then my guess would be on one of the Channel Islands? (Close but not quite France)

            Absolutely Ombugge.Now, which one?

              Knowing your taste I guess one of the small and obscure ones. My guess is Jethou or Herm, although I haven't found this Villa.

                That time,"small and obscure" wasn't my choice.
                Not Jethou or Herm.
                About the villa, don't forget that I told you it is linked with France (or a French place).

                  Then it may be Sark?

                      Hauteville House, Guernsey:


                      Link to a website about the Hauteville House: http://www.visitguernsey.com/victor-hugo

                      Looks like Victor Hugo was heavily Chinese inspired: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qum1zs0dnPo

                      Could some of what is found in this house be from the sacking of the Imperial Place in Beijing in 1860??: http://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-30810596
                      (He was staying in Guernsey from 1855 to 1870)

                      Victor Hugo is regarded as a Saint by followers of Cao Dai, a religious sect in Vietnam, together with several other well known persons in history: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cao_%C4%90%C3%A0i

                        Spot on Ombugge.
                        As its house in Place des Vosges in Paris, Hugo's Hauteville is obviously a place to visit.A bit extravagant as Hugo was himself.

                          Well done, Ombugge. I hadn't a clue where to begin, but alone he did it! (Not bad for one of his age)

                            No I have NOT forgotten my duty, it only took a while to find a suitable puzzle.
                            Here it is. Where in the world is this narrow road??:

                                You are fast. Yes it has got something to do with Kwai River.

                              Is it the cutting at Hellfire Pass,a former section of the railway,now used as a walking trail?
