France #3 $250.
This is from my walk in Montresor.
You just want to follow the steps up...
Our first castle... Chateau de Chenonceau, the one build over the water. It looks small behind our heads but we are very far away!
According to Linda and Kathy the most memorable thing was the flower arrangements in each room, which i did not take many photos of but the girls were ooh and ahhing! They were unique and we heard the arranger was from the US but I cannot confirm that! Also memorable was the copper cookware collection in the kitchen.
We left the castle and went to a Saint Aignon. Our guide Cecile (who we are using on another
day) was born here and she wanted to show us real life in a French town. We started with lunch in a local place and she chatted about her life in St. Aignon. She was a great guide, in her 30's and a music major with a beautiful voice.
Here we are in Saint Aignon. Roses were in full bloom everywhere we went. I was looking forward to the hollyhocks but we were a little too early. The roses made up for it!
Our next stop is Montresor, listed as one of the most beautiful villages. We were all pretty tired so this was a quick stop then back to our little castle and off to bed.
