During my weekend in the Loire Valley, the feeling of “pinch me” never wore off. This could be attributed to the dewey mornings in the country side, where weeping willow trees draped over the road or it could simply be attributed to the stunning chateaux. Rather than explain with details, I will let the pictures do the talking. It is clear that there was a plan behind everything architecturally and that these beautiful structures have stood the test of war, invasions, extreme weather and most importantly time, not only historically, but also in terms of design, allure, and lavishness.
