Best castles to see in France

In the same way that traveling to France should never be limited to visiting Paris, learning about its rich history and checking out some of its amazing architecture should never be constrained to a one-day visit to Versailles — there are countless castles in France that are mind-blowing, much cheaper, and less crowded. So, if you want to make your trip to France a little less predictable but still fill it with beautiful historical sights, leave the hordes of tourist sheep behind, hop on a t...

Chantilly’s Private Princely Apartments Reopening

There are many things that make the Domaine de Chantilly unique (and, in my opinion, much more interesting to visit than Versailles). Its last resident was Henri d’Orléans, Duke d'Aumale, and son of the last King of France, Louis-Philippe. His family’s princely apartments, the only remaining examples from the Monarchie de Juillet in France, will be reopened this month after several years of careful renovations. The Duke and Duchesse d’Aumale’s Private Apartments were created in 1845 within ...

Further On

More photos from the Camino.   The lovely village of Estaing, very ancient with an interesting church. The only problem was a very busy main street with cars and trucks roaring through. This statue was on an ancient bridge built in the 16th century and part of the Unesco World Heritage Sites. He was an Estaing, the family from which one of France’s presidents came. This is Saint Flueret. This sculpture contains relics from, I’m guessing, the saint. It’s carried around in a procession once a y...
