This post is part of the series which describes our adventures during our tour of France some years ago. We had left the lakes in the Rosnay district and were heading south when we came across a very pretty river.
It was “La Creuse” and it was relatively small by French standards but had an amazing setting. I was so caught up with looking at the clear water and the rippling water weeds (did I mention I have a thing about water? – anything wet instantly gets my undivided attention!) that I did not see what was behind me!
Strategically placed on the river bank was a lovely set of buildings – the Château de Romefort. We did not have the time to do much more than admire and take plenty of photos, but here are the best of them for your enjoyment.
Coming unexpectedly on things like this château was what made our trip to France so great. We did not have internet access or much time to spend in tourist offices, so had little idea of what each day would present to us. The down side of this was that we sometimes did not see something we would have liked to (by going a slightly different route), but the flipside was that we saw some amazing sights, simply because we had chosen a different way to travel. The Château de Romefort was one of these nice surprises.
