All of the Scary Hospital Stuff will be Behind Us.
Of this I Pray.
And We Will have France in June. 🙂
A Family of 4 in France.
VRBO makes it Easy to Find a Place to Stay.
This will be our First Trip to France.
Looking for Adventure in the Cities and French Countryside.
I Loved Scrolling through the Endless Possibilities on VRBO.
And then This Popped Up. How About a Walled City?
150 Miles from Paris in North West France.
Sainte-Suzanne. Medieval City with a Castle.
We’re Talking Old. Like 10th Century Old.
Here is a little of what I’ve learned…
Sainte-Suzanne is a perfect natural defensive spot. Even William the Conqueror in the 11th Century couldn’t capture the city.
During the Hundred Years War (15th Century) the city fell and was occupied by the English for 14 years. The French came back strong and regained control.
I probably should have paid better attention in Western Civilization. I did way too much sleeping on that Massive Tome hoping it would magically sink in. It Didn’t. Hmm…
Sainte-Suzanne is called a City of Character. The Castle, Ramparts and Buildings all Remain.
And We have an Opportunity to stay within her Walls.
Sounds like a Glorious Plan, Right?!
Looking forward to a Morning Walk to the Patisserie. For Croissants!
Travel within the Country by Car or Train or Both has to be Decided.
There is Time for That.
Come Take a Peek through the Blue Door.
Ancient Carved Stone with Modern Touches.
A Full Kitchen and a Washing Machine (!)
Travel Secret…Washing Machines and Carry-Ons are Perfect Together.
Will it be Chilly Enough for a Fire in June?
Upstairs 2 Bedrooms. The Princess Room.
The Soothing Master.
Outdoor Walled Balcony off the Kitchen. Sweet in Yellow and Green.
We are all Looking Ahead to June.
Healthy and Happy and Filled with Magic.
Castles and Magic. Oh My.
