Yesterday we headed out to Paris. Only a two hour trip for us, this time to put our passports up to date with the new biometric standards. Two embassies later on the way home we "dropped" into Chantilly.
A lovely domaine which once housed the kings horses. The girls who are absolute horse lovers were wrapped. Only thing to visit the stables one has to fork out 13 euros; just to see some horses.
We told the girls this was definately not worth the money to which they responded " But they are Royal horses!"
On another note, when I first came to France I discovered that whipped cream was called Chantilly and so I assumed that it was first discovered in Chantilly and possibly dans le château!! I wouldn't mind some with my stawberries!
And finally a royal courtsey from principessa Eve Edelweiss herself :)
