    It really isn't anything. It's an old house where Louis XIV stayed for 40 days back in 1660. It has a collection of bits and pieces that justify the fee for the tour. Most of the pieces on display are out of context for the time period and it does feel as though the owners are using it as a way to pay for the maintenance. Good luck to them but save yourself the money.

    Amazing to learn that “le roi soleil “ was a somehow low profile person.

    This place was very interesting to visit. The guide was excellent! I don't know if they guide in English as well though, I had the French version (but I'm French so all good)

    Had the weather been better, we'd planned on an excursion to the mountains; but since it was cloudy & drizzly, we opted instead to visit St. Jean de Luz. This was one of places we toured - a very...
