Chateau de Valencay

We visited Chateau de Valencay today with my parents for Sam's birthday, which is tomorrow. I chose this Chateau as it is especially centred around children with a small farm, fantastic playground and a maze. We did a small tour of inside the Chateau, where Sam giggled at the naked statues. It was well worth the drive :)

Peacocks everywhere and Bella had no fear.

Grandad the big kid.

  5. I love Valencay! I've visited a couple of times with my parents on our way to the south in summer.

    Lovely castle, famous ex-inhabitants. I can imagine you had a beautiful day there!
