Surprise!!!

What started as a weekend camping, relaxing and watching hanggliding,



ended in a big surprise: sleeping in a real castle!


Everything was so beautiful and luxurious, I was totally overwhelmed, unprepared and definitely underdressed in my old jeans and army boots (with the clay still on them;))


This was our room...(wow!)


A little copy and paste from their website:

The history of the castle:
According to historical records the Castle and its initial 1 606 acres were established as hunting grounds and layed out along the likings of Louis XIV, the Roi Soleil, who was attracted to the exquisite scenery and lush landscapes.

The park:
These delightfull lush green 136 acres were designed by an apprentice of le Nôtre.
Le Nôtre was the landscaping architect of Louis XIV, designer of -amongst others- the Versailles gardens and other historical landscapes.


The windows had big windowsills; we could easily sit in there together.


one of the many salons


definitely the best surprise ever;)
