Train to The Chateaux...

1st Class train good call Rob :) Chateau amazing!!

sunny 28 °C

We board our first train...high Speed...we reserved first class throughout our trip and I am so glad I let Rob talk me into 1st class train travel, it is sooo worth it. Lots of leg room for Rob, privacy, air conditioning, more refined travelers, and... you gotta love the free wine... :)

Our first stop Clesse France. We arrive in Macon train station and are greeted by a taxi driver holding our names on a sign and he whisks us off to the Chateau... We pass fields of sunflowers and tiny french villages made of stone. They gotta be hundreds of years old but all so beautifully maintained, with flowers and flower boxes everywhere...so beautiful...

Catherine a girl I have been corresponding with for our booking is there to welcome us, she is as lovely... She shows us to our room, she has upgraded us, as I had requested a big bed for my 6'2 inch hubby she thought we would be more comfortable in a suite... sweet :) !!

It is late and we are tiered and hungry she sends us a cheese and charcuterie plate and some wine from the vineyard to our room...yummy... We eat it out on our balcony what a perfect end to a long day of travel...
