Chateau at Azay le Rideau. We just watched around the grounds on our first day here, waiting for our VRBO host.
A shot from the back of Chateau Langeais, which was built in 1465 by King Louis XI. It was being renovated, but it had a working drawbridge and we could still explore inside and walk all along the top.
Noble knights or goof balls?
Chillin’ at Chateau Langeais
Along the parapet of Chateau Langeais, there were tools and a sign encouraging us to scratch our mark into a new wall of the soft tufa stone. Kinda neat!
Just waiting for Mom and Dad. We are still loving our new Tintin books!
Near the entrance to the Troglodyte Valley of Goupillieres. Quaint, isn’t it?
A little chilly, Ethan?
Raise the roof! Our VRBO is awesome!
James dropped his snorkel mask into the pool and this was his attempt to get it out without actually jumping into the water.
Go, Mattie, go!
A vineyard, Chateau de L’Aulée, that we visited near our VRBO. Can you imagine getting to live on this property?
Down inside the tufa caves at the vineyard, where historically they stored wine as it was the perfect temperature and humidity.
The vines. We had a little audio guide as we went on a self guided walking tour of the property.
Picnic near the river before heading up to the Site Troglodyte.
Can you guess what the large golf tee is used for?
Don’t even ask!
