... demolished a plain croissant AND a chocolate croissant before hand!). We then headed to Chateau du Biron and had great fun climbing the towers and the parapets, marvelling at the thickness of the walls, and the beautiful parquetry floors in the suites.

The images include horses, bison, auroches (bulls), lions, and reindeer. The animals are well represented and easy to identify.
