  4. Gorgeous post! I stopped here once but happened to be a day they were closed. The gardens were open so we had a picnic on the lawn and kept driving. So thank you for letting me take a tour now!! Lovely photos.

  5. Exquisite!! Amy I want to be there!! Fantastic post...I just love these dreamy grandiose places:)

  6. How incredible! I really look forward to these posts Amy. My favorite is The Salon de Conde. I love the colors. You know I've noticed these castles or most had such a beautiful sense of color-most rooms, etc are so rich in color. Just beautiful.

  7. These castle photos never get old. If I wasn't paying attention you could put up the same photos week after week and I'd still love looking at them (of course I'm paying attention though). :)

    Love the book room - totally drooling over here.

  8. Lovely!! That book room is fantastic!

  9. Love love this post. I have to share it with my book club... can you imagine the utility bill? Awh...what a place..
