    ... so wife and mistress never met!) Built in 1515; 440 rooms, 365 fireplaces and 84 staircases, Hundreds of towers, lanterns and turrets( almost reminiscent of Gaudi in Spain) and so drafty, King Francis I only lived there 42 odd days in 37 years. Saw a lovely owl at the top of the helical staircase. Huge trophy gallery with hunting spoils and weapons from the 1900s. Back to camp, feeling we had spent our money well to see so much of the.

    ... it open. He also showed me the trick to it, so now I think I'll be able to manage it!

    We went to the chateau at Villandry this morning. The point of visiting Villandry is not the chateau but the gardens. In fact, most of us didn't really look at the interior of the castle at all.
