Chateau de Villandry

 We hadn’t planned on visiting Chateau de Villandry.  We finished our morning at Chinon and we wanted to visit another place.  We pulled out the map and found Villandry and started heading that way.

The kitchen had a great collection of wooden furniture and copper pots, 2 of my favorite things.

This rack was really interesting, the crates are like ones that I have seen at many markets.  I love how they lift off the rack and they each hold a different kind of produce.

For all of the beautiful art in the house, this little corner of creepy art was more disturbing.

A tree line boulevard is one of my favorite landscaping views.  I love how my daughter is in an all out run.
