It’s not a daily event in my LIFE to plop my body down for DINNER in a 17 CENTURY CHATEAU……..do I PEEK your INTEREST?I assume I would………because it was LUSH, GORGEOUS,and WONDERFUL.I will let the photos speak for themselves.If you have QUESTIONS please ask me in the COMMENT SECTION and I will RESPOND!I took too many photos of the CHATEAU.I couldn’t HELP myself!Hope you enjoy the TOUR!
As you can see I had no problem enjoying my surroundings!We slept in the outdoor buildings which were stables at one time.Dinner was in the CHATEAU at 8:00 pm every night.It was a bit of a walk through the pleached lime trees alley to reach the chateau but I had no problem with that as the view was different each and every night!Those lions that flanked the front door………I so coveted them.I wonder if she will put green wreaths about them during the HOLIDAYS.The kitchen with its soaring ceiling and iron stove was a sight.The dining room had knife rests!The CHATEAU is cool in the evenings so my velvet/raincoat did the trick!
Let me introduce you to the OWNERS of this magnificent spot.The Chateau is called……. D’EMALLEVILLE.
And is own by FREDERIQUE and ARNAUD.She is an outdoorsy woman and does the horse circuit while he is the General Manager of the FRENCH RUGBY TEAM.Here they are…………A BEAUTIFUL COUPLE………..the children possess the genes too!
So,if you find yourself in NORMANDY(only an hour from PARIS)and need a place to sleep………..I would highly recommend this spot.Each room has a different name………..I slept in the SEVILLE ROOM.YOU could have my room………to have slept where LA CONTESSA counted her wares each night thinking each and every day “DON’T BUY ONE MORE THING!”as you already know she doesNOT listen to herself TOO OFTEN!!Which in REALITY is a VERY GOOD thing!
