Chateau de Vendeuvre..love at first sight!
Bonjour mes belles,
Whilst in Normandy we got to visit a chateau that I have been wanting to visit for a very long time. Chateau de Vendeuvre is has been on my "wish list" ever since I stumbled across their fabulous website.
Fortunately for us it was the school holidays, which meant that the chateau was open daily as opposed to just on Sundays afternoons in October.
You are not allowed to take photos of the interior but you will find a lot of photos of the interior on their website.
The attention to detail is amazing in each room and the collection of minatures is one of the biggest in Europe. We also loved the display of pet beds, which were amazing and very luxurious.

Here are some photos that I took out of the exterior and the fabulous gardens....
I particularly loved the unfusiness of the gardens and how they draw your eye to the chateau.
The chateau has a lake complete with swans,the gardens have a special tranquility about them and there is even a magical grotto.
A magical and special place and if you visit Normandy, this is a must do. Note the chateau is closed to visitors for the winter months.
très bon week-end à tous, Leeann x
