Day 3: Usse Château


The last and final Château that we visited was the Château d'Usse. As amazing as the gardens at Villandry were, the Château d'Usse was definetly my favourite out of all the Châteaux that I visited. I'm not sure why, but it had this tranquility to it. The other castles just seemed too perfect. Usse was located in the middle of the French countryside surrounded by untamed trees and bush. It was also the castles that inspired many of the Walt Disney fairytales, in particuler Sleeping Beauty, which was renacted by the mannequins in these pictures.
