|Loved these charming statues of children and dogs either side of the entrance to the house.|
Inside the house was sublime. I've been lucky enough to visit some of the great house museums, chateaux, castles and stately homes in Europe, but this little Chateau was the most charming. The sense of style and taste of the interior design and furnishings is both fabulous and intimate. I only hope my photo's do it justice.

|Glorious silk draped beds in all the bedrooms which are hung with dazzling chandeliers.|
We finished our tour with a ramble through the park and gardens. I loved the rectangular clipped trees and roses in the English Potager garden.
|With Roberto in the gardens of Champs sur Marne. Behind us are rectangular clipped trees and parterre gardens. Beyond are the wild meadows, vivid orange poppies in the potager and classic urns and statues.|
