To Paris for Christmas...

Well did you guess? 
I am fortunate enough to have a brother in Paris who also has a lovely house in Provence, where this year he decided to have his family Christmas gathering. He was not alone as it appears the great majority of Parisians head out of the city at this time of year. This of course meant his Paris apartment was empty and he was more than happy to let Pauline and I use it for Christmas.

Rooms with a view - an expensive one!

We travelled up on the 23rd taking the N10 road via Vendôme, where we had lunch, Châteaudun and Chartres before heading up to Saint-Rémy-lès-Chevreuse from where we took the RER into the city (4.90 euros). We parked the car (9 euros/week) near the station where it will be (we hope) until we return. We were lucky enough to find a train at the station on our arrival.

Entrance to Vendome.

The very festive bridge over the Loir (without the 'e') in Vendome.
The imposing chateau at Chateaudun.
