Belcastel is a tiny village in Aveyron, which takes its name from the hill top chateau it surrounds. It was in the chateau itself that our friends decided to get married.
The cobbled path leads up to the chateau and those are the keys to the castle. Hollyhocks and lavender everywhere.
So many nooks and crannies to explore. So much wine to drink.
But you know, even a fairytale ruined castle has to service day to day needs. A long drop toilet and a post box.
|A typical roof of the area, with these beautiful scalloped stone roof tiles. It has the effect of making every rooftop look like a mermaid's tail. Did you notice that even the chateau's post box has them? A nice touch. Made me smile.|
|Stone troughs filled with flowers. I want Q to make me some out of concrete. Can you see a pirate lurking in the undergrowth?|
