Friday Fun: Coucou from France!

I have scheduled this post to be published while I am away in France , hopefully not suffering too much travel disruption with the ongoing strikes and demonstrations. I am sure that there would be a public storming of the chateaux below if they were still owned by the aristocracy or the government! But Friday Fun bears little resemblance to reality, so let’s have some fun with chateaux again.

Now this is what I think of when I hear the word ‘chateau’ – for sale from the Patrice Bresse Agency.
A far more modest affair in Bourg-en-Bresse, the administrative seat of my ‘departement’. From Sotheby’s International.
Another charming (and abandoned) symmetrical chateau, courtesy of EMC2 Property.
This chateau is available for rental and it’s set in the Dordogne, a favourite region with Anglos. From Luxury Rentals Dordogne.
I never can resist a turret or two though, even though this chateau looks slightly out of place in the south of France, from Forbes.
You know what? This one looks almost manageable – only slightly bigger than a detached house in the UK (and probably a good deal cheaper), plus the indispensable turrets! Chateau du Pin.

  1. I hope you’re having a fabulous time, Marina Sofia! How lovely that you’re having the chance to get away for a bit. In the meantime, these chateaux are beautiful. The second one’s my choice, but they’re all lovely.
