Our stay at Château de Villiers..
Time to head back to Rural France after spending some time with the family in the UK.
We decided to have an overnight stop on the way back and stayed at a beautiful 15th Century Château. Château de Villiers is steeped with character and history, and the owners have tried to keep as much of it as original as possible. We stayed in Chambre de Lys, a beautiful big blue room, you could certainly feel the history in the room, and could imaging what it would have been like in it's day. The Château has a Moat all the way round, quite pleasing to see as I haven't seen on before. Our dinner in the evening was cooked by Fabienne the owner, and she dished up quite a delicious Medieval meal, recipes from the era. We dined in the Dining room that had a beautiful large stone fireplace, which was lit with logs burning away and having that woody smokey smell, with classical music playing in the background, as we were the only guest, we felt quite privileged to be eating and being waited on in such a manner.....quite and experience.....at a cost...
