fabulous french chateau





Welcome to the stunning Chateau de la Verrerie~ If you are anything like me, you immediately see fairy tales when you see it. They refer to it as a "bed and breakfast". Really? Because I have been to bed and breakfasts and they certainly didn't look like this...

{just to be clear, I could *so* live here...}




The grounds are beautifully manicured but just wild enough to be romantic and comfortable.






I absolutely adore the vegetable gardens and can imagine spending my days with a basket and trowel, (and of course my big sunhat) tending to these gardens~






The interior is just as beautiful and comfortable as the exterior. It is warm, welcoming, and well-decorated.











The rooms are simply luxurious! The blue room is my favorite - could you just melt away in that bathtub?!?










The beauty of Chateau de la Verrerie is that it is only a few hours outside of Paris - I think the next time handsome husband and I are in France, we need to take the train out and stay for a few nights... Granted, I would never want to leave. Maybe I need to have a bed and breakfast in the French countryside...





Have a lovely weekend mes amies!

That "chateau" looks like a straight up CASTLE!!! Straight out of a Disney movie. Love everything about it. I love that although it is huge, it's well decorated... not too gawdy or over done. Thanks for sharing!!! Gorgeous pics.

You can find these French Chateaus up in the Highlands of Scotland too - especially at Campbell seats. There's even one or two in Orlando, complete with fake snow...
