Photo of the Week – Château of Azay-le-Rideau, Loire Valley

A few years ago, right before spending two weeks in Tours, France for language immersion, I spent a few days exploring the wines and chateaux of the Loire ValleyChenonceau, Chambord, etc. are all phenomenal castles to explore with their idyllic settings, great architecture, and sense of history.  One of my favorite settings and chateaux was the château in Azay-le-Rideau.  It was built in the early 16th century on an island in the Indre River and it just seems to come straight out of the water!

  1. That is really cool. I think I’d like to call that home, even if just in my dreams while standing there with that view.
