    What a delightful place Moulins seems to be. The Chateau and its surroundings are lovely, indeed. Your attention to detail is grand.

    the chateau pictures are just beautiful! In Napa they had Chateaus as well although not as stately as those in France, but very beautiful as well

    I have often driven across Moulins, on the way to somewhere else and had never taken the time to visit the city and had never heard about this castle. Thank you for sharing. Next time, I will pay a visit, thanks to you!
