There were three Gardens, maze, carriage gallery, 16th century farm, vegetable and flower garden, and tea room. We certainly took time to walk around and try to see everything. It was really an fairy tale experience.
So much walking and claiming stairs, my legs have been sore for like a week. I guessed that's how people back then to stay fit... no gym was needed.
The path led us back into the village and up to the Chateau. At the gate, the guard said we had to pay to see inside. I was like... I just saw the most photographed castle in the world... do I really need to see another Chateau on the same day??? Feeling kind of chateau out at the moment! The guard then went on telling us how beautiful this private chateau is, the current owner still lives there, and how it is one of the most decorated and furnished chateaus. Ok ok... you twisted my arm... we'll pay and go inside.
Well, the guard was right and we were glad we went in.
It's so hard for Sophie not to touch anything or sit on the beautiful furnitures specially after a long walk up and down the hilly village and claiming up the spiral staircase in the castle. I told her if she had to sit, she can sit on the floor... so here she was on the floor fixing her new shoes.
