The Loire Valley is very special. Each small town is different and we found Blois to be absolutely lovely. From the intown Chateau to the church to the fabulous, cool, hipster barbershop where Adam got his hair cut, we were so surprised at this little town every time we turned a corner. We used it as home base when we visited Chambord and Cheverny.
A pack of some seventy dogs are kept on the grounds and are taken out for hunts twice weekly. We watched them being fed and it was absolutely incredible! They all line up, with the food right in front of them and only when the trainer tells them they can eat do they dive into the food of raw chickens (with heads) and dog food. Yum!
Here are a few photos….

I love the Gargoyles!!
