Yesterday was what I would call a fun day. My hubby had a day off, and we had the time to take an inexpensive yet very fulfilling journey back in time through a French château!
Our destination: The Renaissance museum in Ecouen, in the Northern Paris subburbs( in the département 95). This is 20 minutes away from Paris’ gare du Nord, via the suburban train line called le Transilien.
A few pics below of the exterior:
After a relaxing 20-30 minute walk through a forest, you arrive at the side of the château.
To give you an idea of how a classic French garden is like. Taken from a window inside the castle. symmetry and clean lines…
Finally, the front view.
It was a delightful experience. We strolled through Renaissance apartments, admired precious tapestries,numerous objects that were both mundane and precious( including a treasure room with a secured door!), a beautiful chapel and much more.
Stick around and I hope that you will enjoy our trip through the Renaissance in France. You will keep in mind as you go through the pics that we are in 14th-17th centuries.
See you soon!
