La Motte-Tilly

Hey! My images are back! See?

Yesterday, Steph, my mother-in-law and I visited the chateau at La Motte Tilly. We arrived just in time for a guided tour of the chateau, which is in remarkable condition and houses many antiques from the eras of Louis XIV, Louis XV, well most of the Louises after the Sun King, up to the Empire Period. The rooms have been left much like the last Marquise left them some thirty years ago. The tour was in French, and I understood a great deal, and Steph filled in the gaps.

After the tour, we took a turn out in the gardens before coming home. I took some pictures, and they can be found at the photoblog. All in all, it was a lovely way to spend an afternoon.
