Château Gaillard 2015

Today I'm starting a series of shots taken at Château Gaillard in August.  It was open this summer to the public to see all of the progress that has been made on the multi-year restoration project.
Here's how it looked at this time last year.  In this shot you can see the addition of an orangerie (like a greenhouse) underneath the terrace.  The renovation of the retaining wall is magnificent.  The brilliant white stone was almost too much for my camera.


  1. An orangerie?! Now there's an idea!

  2. Stuart--Is this in Amboise??? Mark and I thought we saw almost everything during our stay.

    1. This is in fact in Amboise but it was open only until the end of August. So I guess you'll just have to come back next summer.
