Providing intimate insight into life in a French ch&acirc;teau,
this volume takes readers on an insider&rsquo;s tour of the
Ch&acirc;teau du Lude, a private residence that features its
original decorative interiors.
Nestled in the idyllic Loire
Valley, the Ch&acirc;teau du Lude is one of the most historic
ch&acirc;teaus in France; Bluebeard besieged the castle on his way
to join Joan of Arc&rsquo;s crusade, and it earned the rare
distinction of having survived the French Revolution intact. Today,
the Lude is inhabited and impeccably maintained by the Count and
Countess Louis-Jean de Nicolay, whose family has owned the property
for over 250 years. They invite readers to discover the
ch&acirc;teau&rsquo;s well-preserved interiors and gardens,
which feature a medieval kitchen, an Italian Renaissance studiolo,
and exceptional horse stables, offering a glimpse into the lifestyle
of the ch&acirc;teau&rsquo;s inhabitants, past and present.
Newly commissioned photographs offer unprecedented access into the
hidden corners of the estate otherwise closed to the general public.
