No Wonder There Was a Revolution

We all know the great chateaux of France:  Versailles, Fontainebleau, Chambord, Vaux le Vicomte, Chantilly, etcetera.   But it's truly astonishing how many grand houses dot the countryside within an hour's drive from central Paris alone.









Just another big "country house" behind a big gate

Personally, I'm thinking I'm pretty lucky not to be saddled with all that yard work.

At least they waited until these places were built, so the tourists would have something to ooh and ahh over.
