Chateau du Ussé, France
ast week, I shared my week-long road trip through France
with my bestie and I mentioned that we stopped at Sleeping Beauty’s castle, Chateau du Ussé. It was too hard for me to only share one or two photos from our visit so I thought I’d devote a full post to the beautiful castle today. I think castle hopping in France would make for an amazing honeymoon and hopefully this post will convince you. A few years ago, I spent 11 days with my French friend, S, driving through the Loire Valley (which is packed with gorgeous castles) and it was seriously magical.

This one was so striking that B turned into the driveway to give us a closer look!
The twisty roads on the way to Ussé felt so dreamy and magical:
And before we knew it, this beauty was in front of us:
… And we entered fairytale land … except it was real which made it so much more incredible!
The town of Ussé was just as mesmerizing:
