Friday Fun: It’s Those Chateaux Again!

Yes, I know I said there were some beautiful palaces all over Europe (and I haven’t even gone to other continents – that’s a thought for future posts!). But I still dream of that perfect little chateau somewhere in France… Perhaps because there are so many of them to choose from, something for every taste.

  1. I like the first one, but the thing is with these big houses, not just the upkeep, but I couldn’t stand having servants, even if I were loaded, so it’s back to a practical space.
