This chateau's beauty is amazing. I have seen a lot of images and videos before my visit but I was not prepared for so much elegance.

When we arrived the line snaked around three times, and we were in it for an hour--but this was to be expected. If you arrive expecting to see everything in the palace and gardens, you are going to exhaust yourself. You have to visit the...More
