Holiday at last


After leaving a very wet Holland, we arrived in Normandy for an overnight stay in this lovely chateau just outside Alencon. Wonderful experience!

About Malou
I'm a mom to a five-year old little girl with interest in cooking, baking, traveling and photography. Castles and palaces are special favorites so when weather permits for a good walk on weekends, me, hubby and little girl are always out for a bit of adventure.

  3. It looks beautiful. My daughter was visiting the seashore of the Netherlands with her host family from Germany. They stayed in a castle turned hostel. That looked beautiful, too.

    I was in Holland from June 18th until June 28th. We had wind and rain and it never got above 70. I had such a wonderful time visiting because it kept me out of the excruciating heat New England was having!

  22. Holland is my ancestral homeland would love to visit there one day. A friend of mine was just at the Bierkreek Rose Festival and also visited The Hauge rose trials.
