Once upon a time there was a region that took you into the past. Into the time of glorious heroes and princesses and fabulous castles. Into the time when monks planted their veggie patches in geometric shapes paying attention to the matching colors so that even cabbages and broccolis would reflect the perfection of this world God created.
Well, this valley of about 50 castles is certainly a tiny perfect corner of our world. The Loire Valley of France. The land of the most romantic châteaux.
