It’s like walking into a large book fairytale book !! As you open the cover of the book, an avenue of plane trees lies before you …
.. a river flows under the bridge ..
… children feed ducks on the river bank ..
.. and the story unfolds ..
Once upon a time, in a land far, far away, there was a ‘romantic pleasure palace, created from the Renaissance onwards by a series of aristocratic women.’
Our story begins in the Château’s 16th century farm and vegetable and flower garden, covering more than a hectare and tended by 10 gardeners and 2 florists providing all the flowers for the flower arrangements in each room of the Château
A low knee-high row of what looked like apples ..
Gorgeous kiddies playhouse attached to one of the houses ..
.. where one of our fellow travellers sat and had a delicious light meal served with a chilled glass of champagne ..
There is also a wax works museum, which we didn’t enter
Our story continues .. next post 🙂
