In France, beautiful châteaux dot the countryside and it is not uncommon to find that many French families own their very own charming château.
Such is the case with the Mr., whose family has a lovely château near Le Mans, le Château de Chardonneux. I’ve been a few times now and am mesmerized every time by the French country charm of this beautiful home. Sadly they’ll be leaving it soon so I just had to snap some photos on my latest visit. This place truly feels like something out of a fairytale, with a tree-lined, gated entrance, surrounded by a little canal and leading to a large pond at the back of the property, it’s absolutely perfect.
Everything feels so relaxed, surrounded by nature, it’s such a refreshing change from the busy city streets of Paris to spend a nice weekend away here. Plus, the company is so lovely, I don’t think I could ask for better hosts!
