I love a French chateau and I'd been dreaming of seeing Versailles for years. It was jaw-droppingly beautiful, I must have looked like a startled bunny walking through the rooms, but was it my fav Chateau experience? Sadly not, putting all the gorgeousness aside it was CRAZY!!! This was on a quiet day because there was no queue for tickets, or to get through security but still it was mayhem :D In particular the Hall of Mirrors and Marie Antoinette's room .... I couldn't even get a look at her bed ...just the canopy. Still maybe next time!
Anyway here are some photos I took
checking out the cracks in the ceiling
I was surprised at the really bold colours - beautiful looking through one room to the next.
I want that!!!
I call this the Mr Kipling French Fancy Room .... part of a side exhibition of how the palace might have looked today ...
Tried to take a photo of me and hubby in the mirrors ... didn't really work :)
Will go back in a year or so and see the Trianon and the gardens and maybe take a breath to enjoy it :) But Langeais is still my favourite chateau visit ever
