French Architecture - Traditional Houses in France
This page introduces the French architecture and traditional house types found in France. The country's residential architecture is very varied and traditional French houses are obviously not the same between Brittany, Franche-Comte and the Parisian quarters.
We will not be dealing with the provincial or Renaissance architecture here but with the particular house types found in France. These architectural styles actually complement the French architecture wealth in terms of public buildings and monuments. Click on the map to learn more about each French region's architecture.
