The Castles of FRANCE

September 26, 2012

It amazes me that all of these historic castles still exist today. Castles brings you back to the medieval times. Fighting dragons and Shrek! It is quite  popular now-a days to incorporate the castle look into people homes. Who doesn't want to live in a Castle?

Chateau de Carcassone
Date of construction: Medieval and 11th century

Chateau de Malbrouck, Manderen
The Château de Menthon is a medieval castle located in the commune of Menthon-Saint-Bernard, 12 kilometres (7.5 mi) south of Annecy in the Haute-Savoie department of France. Standing on a 200 metres (660 ft) tall rock, its stone towers loom over Lake Annecy, the Roc de Chère National Nature Reserve, and Menthon-Saint-Bernard. Since 1989, it is listed as a monument historique by the French Ministry of Culture. (Brought to you by Wikepedia)
The Château d'If is a fortress (eventually a prison) situated on the island of If, the littlest island in the Frioul Archipelago located in the Mediterranean Sea about a mile offshore in the Bay of Marseille in south eastern France. It is well-known for being one of the settings of Alexandre Dumas' adventure novel The Count of Monte Cristo.
The Château de Chantilly is situated in Chantilly (Oise), France , in a remarkable site in the valley of the Nonet , a tributary of the Oise. This is the best castle, hands down.
