French Chateau

It's August, so it must be time to depart Paris to spend a leisurely month in the South of France. Many Parisians travel to the countryside during August; many places shut down during this month. I just placed an order to have an exquisite settee custom made in France specifically for my decorating client. Because of the August shut down the piece will not be started until September, but it is certainly worth the wait....
So I figured why not rent a chateau in France for the month while I wait,
Or so I could dream....
Please enjoy Chateau Dumas with me..

What a luxury that would be to take a month off and travel. Sure wish someone could explain that concept of relaxation to the company my husband works for. We can barely get away for a long weekend.LOL
Love those pale blue shutters and doors.

What a picture, it's those pale blue windows I love so much. I'm thinking of putting a little gate in my garden, I think I'll paint it that colour.

French Chateau! Two words that I love together!! The small dormers at the top of these grand homes have always drawn me in. The Biltmore Estate in North Carolina is so fantastic and has beautiful windows from the main floor to the attic. Love your blog!! Kristine

The chateau is great...but I would settle for living somewhere that "shut down" for the month of August! That would be dreamy...big sigh:}
