Group Trip
Chateau Chanze
Living like a King

Chateau Chanze, home for a week

The hall

The chateau was built in the 1400s

Bacchus rules in wine country

Rock solid stone steps up the tower

King Henry IV stayed here

He stayed in this room

But now Harvey Bruce does

Grapes in the fields around Chanze

Overlooking the chateau


Sparkling wine of Saumur

Bruce tends to the fire

Relaxing in the hall

The pool and old stables

Bruce and Jenn brave the chill for a swim in the heated pool

Chanze claims right to the largest fireplace in the region

What the fireplace is good for

Creating the ambiance

The fire master

Fish fry

The cook at work

The kitchen table


The brothers, Joe & Paul

A great day for a pool party

A bite to eat

Soaking up the sun! :-)

Fruit does not fall far from the tree- Floatie Boy and Floatie Mom

Preparing for our BBQ dinner

The sun sets on another great day


The Group

The Magnum ice cream girl

Be-bopping to Elvis

Tom, Paul & Joe

Le Chateau Chanze under an (almost) full moon

Ann & Joe

Paul & Claire

Gen & Pete

Jennifer & Bruce

Tom & Lori

Good bye Chateau Chanze

The way out :-(
