Visiting an old French castle this summer, I noticed these doors. One older than the other, both giving entrance to another interesting room.

Any comments?

How about the castle itself?? I remember having spent more than a year of my early childhood in a rented room of a Chateau in Tolouse, with my family :)

Aha!!!! Toulouse, beautifull city. Well in fact this castle was not that far from Toulouse. About 100 km noth of it in the lovely village of Bruniquel. I don't have that many pictures of the castle as a whole as I was more focussed on the lovely details. But I found one.

At the time we were there they were rehearsing for an opera to be held that evening in the courtyard. The diva herself was filling the rooms -and beyond- with her voice. It gave the place something extra.

I'm not sure if I got all 7, but I do know that the castle you made is back to the middle ages without electricity and perhaps even without running water ....

I find electricity in a castle like television on honeymoon, which is extra :G

Maarten Sep 26, 2006 12:25 PM

In that case I bet you didn't have your honeymoon in chateau Olivie ! :-D:-D Perhaps no TV there at the time, but most certainly electricity. Nice place though.

About the rehearsel: it was mostlyl about loosening the voice, so many high pitched lalalalalalalaaaaaaa's. A messi n the dressing rooms and a stock of mineral water enough to drench a cavelry. Luckely I wasn't there that evening as thundering lightning and heavy rains tormented the region.
