amazing works of architecture...
I'm curious, who own these chateaus now and are they open to the public for viewing?

Some are properties deprived, others belong to the French state from now on, but a big part of them are public museums


anyway, this is another Castle :

Château de Vaux le Vicomte (1661) :

I've always loved Vaux-le-Vicomte...almost as good as Versailles and so much quieter to visit......
Well done Nicolas Fouquet!! You paid for it very expensive but it was worth it!
It's one of the rare châteaux in France that is entirely privately owned. They are always in need of money to keep restoring the place (you can see that the entrance side of it needs work), so if you want to help them go to their website (or even better visit the place, it's a bit far from Paris but definitely worth it).
