I would like to know the type of mortar mix used to point the stone in this photo. And how well does it stay up to the elements in the tropics?

The exterior of my house in SW France (Aveyron) has just been pointed in this way. The render was applied onto existing original stone after the old grouting was picked out and the maçon used a lime mortar mix which is synonymous with that region. We haven't got around to getting shutters yet but generally, they are always painted dark brown, though I'm going with a more contemporary look using F&B French Gray.

The gravel patio with a pergola covered in vines for al fresco dining is a must for every home.
Marianne Lipanovich added this to Lay of the Landscape: French Garden Style
A little more casual is this vine covering a patio space. Look for a plant that will provide shade through most of the outdoor season. Your personal style will dictate if you want greenery only or some color provided by flowers. If you choose the latter, be sure the blooms are more subdued than exuberant for a classic French feel.Another good choice is an espaliered fruit tree. Edibles were always part of a French garden, and a well-trained espaliered tree will fit right in.
