  1. Just gorgeous! I love the colors. The bedroom is showing mainly pink to me. I think that is right? Not red on the coronet and bed coverings?

  2. such beautiful pictures - thank you so much. Another chateau I have fond memories of.

  3. Wow!!! That looks amazing. You've seen some beautiful places this trip.

  4. Chenonceau doit être le plus beau des châteaux au long de la Loire. Au moins pour moi ...
