... the view from Chateâu de Sassy.
The house and grounds are privately owned, and I believe, still inhabited. Tours of the interior are available.
But we just love the exterior. The utterly breathtaking gardens are free to enjoy (as far as I know!!) and whenever we have come ... we have been the only visitors, leaving us to feel like Lords and Ladies of the manor.
I think we've been four times and I'd like to come back a couple more times before our move. Maybe even bring a board game and a picnic lunch? Everything here is all that you could possible dream French countryside to be.
Do you prefer countryside or city views? Does this country estate surprise you at all?
