Topic: Beautiful castles

Always loved them and I lived in a part of France, Valley Of Loire which has some of the most amazing ones in Europe. Some are just amazing pieces of architectural art.

Like these:

Re: Beautiful castles

I had a castle once near the ocean. Oh the smell of the salty air. Though I loved it with all my heart and wished to stay there forever, it was destroyed by a tsunami...

Re: Beautiful castles

Some amazing castles in this Thread.  I don't think I've ever seen one up close n personal.  Anyone here ever actually stayed in one?

Re: Beautiful castles

Very nice one getken.

And Ghostseeker, yes, stayed 4 years in this Castle of Ruble near Toulouse, France. The pool that's on the left side brings me crazy memories, we shoveled the damn thing ourselves. Argh. lol

It was a beautiful place.

Re: Beautiful castles

You stayed there four years?  Like as your primary living quarters?  Why?  What were you doing there?  Were you renting a room or something?  Others there?

Re: Beautiful castles

That place was actually the work place. A printing house that was doing books, posters and that kinda stuff. Was also an Editing company.  Everybody lived on the spot in magnificient rooms. I was Art director for the whole thing. I miss these days, a lot of great fun, Europe is so different than America.

Got away 'cause the place closed down. So no more work so back to my side of the ocean. I will NEVER forget this place. Too much fun.

Re: Beautiful castles

Truly amazing. I've visited a few castles in my travels to Germany and the UK. Out of the ones here so far Melrose, Schwerin and Chenonceau are the most beautiful. Unfortunately nothing like these anywhere near me.

Re: Beautiful castles

Chenonceau is truely amazing.

Re: Beautiful castles

I've always wanted to see the castles in the UK.
Since I'll be marrying an Englishman, dream could come true.
His family is still there so we would have a place to stay for free.
Just need the money to get going.
He told me when he was a kid he used to visit the castles.
His nana has a pic of him laying on one of the stone beds big_smile
