Chateau de Boissimon

Although I've never actually stayed in a French Chateau, I've always been partial to the idea of it! And being inspired by Villa Anna's blog entry on the book 'A French Table' (which is a staple beside my bed too), I thought that I would do a little chateau research of my own. And I found Chateau de Boissimon! Now, as much as like the idea of finding a run down old chateau to renovate to my hearts content - I also like the idea of just moving into one that comes ready made, just like this one! Oh, one can only dream..... And right now, I'm dreaming of sleeping in that four poster bed - isn't it just so grand... However, I think that it's the library room that really tickles my fancy. I could get lost in there for hours...

I love the library/reading room. I can be in there for hours!

Oh my this chateau is absolutely divine. This is certainly my idea of a French holiday. Rustic yet sophisticated = LOVE!

p.s Thank you so very much for the mention! I'm the first one to admit I'm not much of a cook but I have to say the simple mouth watering recipes from this book really entice me to have a go :)

I love the library room, too! It would be wonderful to spend a few hours escaping the world there! x
