A fairytale castle in France

Today we headed for a chateau, which made a change from a cathedral!  Or else there would have been a risk that this blog and our holiday would need to be remamed “a Tour or French Cathedrals while House Swapping”!

It was in the beautiful village of Pierrefonds, and not surprisingly has been used as a film set for a number of films and most recently the BBC series Merlin. 

It was nestled among trees, at the edge of a lake.

The village was very picturesque, but they will have to wait for another post.

Where is your favourite castle?
