Beautiful Chateau

May 2013

As part of our road trip around Luxembourg, France and Belgium, we arrived to sleep overnight at this well-known and many times photographed château in France.

We arrived on a late and rainy night and negotiated our way in through the very steep back garden with many a faceful of wet leaves and trees for what seemed like forever. We were uncertain for a minute that we were in the right place until we got closer.

After finding the back door, we arrived and set up for a nights sleep. It was quite a restful night but managed some sleep before we were up at sunrise waiting for enough light to take photos.

Judging by some friends recent trip here, we were expecting a lot of other people to turn up this morning but luck was on our side and we spent the next few hours on our own photographing this place, room by room.

Many of the photos from this place show the stairs and the (in)famous red carpet but being inquisitive sort of guys, we made our way around the whole place and captured what we liked. Usually a château full of empty rooms is not enough to keep us interested for long but this place is something else.

I’ll let you decide whether the photos or the place was worth the late entry, early morning and the facefulls of water.
