La Roche Guyon Chateau

We visited the town of Roche Guyon yesterday and explored a huge chateau.  


We met this guy. He was just hanging around.


Across the road is the garden for the castle. I understand that sometimes at least 300 people stopped by for dinner so they had to have a large garden to feed everyone.

Ruth explained to me alot of interesting facts about estate gardens.  They are called parterre gardens and they contains walls of foliage for privacy so you could plot to overthrow the master or arrange a tryst.
