More France pics at long last!

I have chosen some more pictures to show you all - they're mostly cute buildings and some interiors that I'd like to reproduce in miniature if I had the time, patience and space! It was pretty much the basis for taking all the pictures I took in France!

These first four pics show some houses in the seaside Brittany town of Vannes (think I showed some pics of the old walled part of town in an earlier post).

Next is a row of tudor houses with shops/cafes beneath. Also in Vannes I think. Most of the places we visited had these old districts full of narrow cobbled streets and tudor buildings all on top of each other.

Next is a pic taken inside Chenonceau I think. It is a chateau in the Loire valley - called the ladies' castle I think, as it has mostly had women own it over time. It was all decorated for easter and looked great. It was a little disappointing as there wasn't much furniture but that was probably typical of the era for many of the chateaus.

Next is the bridge where my fiance proposed to me (that's him leaning over the rail). It was taken the day before he proposed.

Lastly is a picture of Versailles, not long before my camera died (dammit!). Luckily we didn't go anywhere with only one camera - my other half took lots of pics for me. It was truly spectacular and I will have to visit it again one day.
