I lived in France for a bit and with every day my love continues to grow beyond any words could ever describe. One of my favorite parts was visiting the centuries old architecture still standing representing the rich pride the French have for history. Their history to be specific.
Sitting on an island in the middle of the Indre river, Château d'Azay-le-Rideau is believed to be on of the first examples of early French Renaissance architecture.
As you enter every room your greeted with furnishing in such pristine condition, it seems time never elapsed. At times such interior architecture can easily come across as gaudy and overwhelming, but it was complementary to the time period.
