france part 2: brittany and the loire valley

We spent the next couple of nights in St. Malo, Brittany - a beautiful, walled medieval town on the water, and then one night in a chateau in the Loire valley.

A stop on the way to St. Malo.




We walked around most of the St. Malo city wall at night. I loved the old town feel.




View from the our window in the chateau.

Lovely photos. St Malo is a favorite of ours, too. Most of what you see was rebuild after WWII when the town was virtually leveled by bombings. The city still has a great feel to it though.
