Close by Tours
is Château Chenonceaux,
which we visited together with Elsa and her lovely daughter.
France is in Germany known for its wonderful castles
(and its delicious wine and good food and much more … ;)).
In the Loire region and its tributaries there are many castles,
the Château Chenonceaux was one of the most beautiful that I saw so far.
A moated castle built over the River Cher.
The castle appears playful with its turrets and balconies and spoil.
Inside the rooms thrilled me well-preserved,
the colorful beds and wallpapers
(wallpapers are indeed an art in itself),
the kitchen and the many staircases and stairs.
The castle belonged to a beautiful garden
with rose bushes and fountains,
benches for resting and elegant cut trees.
