chantilly Chateau #3

Some more of the inside.  You know what I really liked about it all?  You were allowed to take pictures inside.  That is incredibly rare now.  No flash, but I can live with that.  So many stately homes don't allow photography.  Loved that about the French historical sites.

If you haven't worked it out yet I am seriously in to historic houses, castles and museums.  I was once known to spend 5 hours in Cirencester museum.  My friends poke fun that it is the size of a house and I had to read every caption and board.  history bore...

Enjoy the pics.

Very security concious do you think?

Nothing wrong with liking history, not at all!

Thanks for your tip re photos, I shall try it next time.
That took me back to a week we spent in the Loire, such a lovely region to explore. One of my favourite chateaux was Villandry.
