The we left with the intention of checking out Chateau Chaumont. The French countryside is so lovely. Unfortunately we could not actually see Chaumont from the car so we headed back to Amboise and our new home at Chateau des Arpentis. On the way we did have a little problem of getting a bit stuck in the mud while making a u-turn. The French drivers were patient.
Chateau des Arpentis
We are in the Orangery, a beautiful cave built into the side of a cliff, separate from the Chateau itself.

|The girls slept in this room - it is ready for the 3 bears!|
|This is in the front of their room, looking toward the kitchen.|
|This was at the ends of the gates so no one could crawl around the gate. It is very pretty but could really do some damage!|
|There were ancient walls and buildings on our walk near the chateau.|
