Chateau Les Crayeres- 09.03.08

crayeres1.jpgUPDATE!: The bathroom was so gorgeous and huge as well i’ve added pictures of that as well….

Ok, we’re going to jump out of order a bit, but i am far too excited by the gorgeously inspiring chateau Veuve Clicquot moved us to today… imagine waking up from a jetlagged nap and feeling like you fell into a time warp? Welcome to Chateau Les Crayeres in the heart of the Champagne of France… the grounds, decor, rooms, lounge, restaurant…. it’s all breath takingly stunning. Don’t believe me? You have to take a look at the rest of the pictures on the next page… wow. I’m sitting on that bed in the pic right now, and i can’t help staring off every few minutes discovering new details, from the paintings, to the wallpaper patterns, to how ornate the extra high ceilings are!

Basically for the ultimate escape, i can’t imagine a more surreal and beautiful space to relax and catch my breath in… and the whole “room” is probably three time the size of tiny SF apts i’ve ended up in…

p.s.
The pics on the next page of the circular bar areas with the petticoat like curtains are so sweet!

Anybody know what kind of shaped trees / bushes those are in the outdoor picture that’s about halfway down the page?

We need more of that stuff in the U.S. don’t you think?

What a great Chateaux! My dream is to own one, and for a couple million euros (which is not that much considering your getting a 200+ year old historic mansion in the country) you can have one! This is one of my favorite websites for chateaux hunting, it even converts the euro to the dollar! My favorites are in Haute Saone and Autun. Enjoy!
