Huuuge royal bedchamber...
Fondest memory: but a rather small royal bed, don't you think? Again, I love the decor in this place, these patterns and hues and fabrics. If only you could read that little red sign at the foot of this bed, it tells about the Royal Assassination which occurred on THIS VERY SPOT a few centuries ago. I have no details for you other than that a knife was involved...yikes!!! So be warned and be careful when you go to sleep tonight, I guess, eh?
A glorious riot of pattern, texture and color!
Fondest memory: For lack of a better or official name for this place, I humbly call it a hallway in the Blois chateau. Some hallway, eh?! It's a feast for the eyes, all of these fabulous colors and designs. They work beautifully well together. Just don't try this yourself on such a grand scale at home, or you may end up with a living room which resembles the main casino at a Vegas resort!
..turn around for the opposite look!
Fondest memory: From the south bank of the Loire here in Blois, the Old Town is spread out before your eyes over on the northern side of town. Another fine example of the best of provincial FRANCE...
View from a Bridge
Fondest memory: Walking all around this town is a treat, and very easy since it's so compact. This is your view from the north side to the south, across the Loire River.
A Hilly Town
Favorite thing: The town of Blois slopes upward on the north bank of the Loire, and there are some fairly good sized-hills to climb. I like urban staircases such as this one not far from the chateau.
