    This weekend I rode to the Easter family meeting. It was really cold and the weather was grey, but I did stop to take a picture of 2 castels.

    Thanks guys for your photos. During the last year I find me often thinking "Hm, didn't we have a thread with this thema?!?"

    During the Easterdays we made a travel to Verdun. In one hand a very depressing area. . .

    But they have nice little roads there. And sometimes without pavement. . .

    Yes, That is Guédelon.

    I've visited it a few years ago and it is VERY interesting.
    It is built in the Morvan area which is also very nice to ride on a motorcycle.

    The same initiator Michel Guyot wants also to build a "new" castel in the USA : http://ozarkmedievalfortress.com/en-us/

    An equal plan they had in Messkirch, Bavaria. They want to build a Monastery with the old technics http://www.karolingischeklosterstadt.de// Sorry, no english version. . .

    I have to visit the site in France. For sure. . .

    I had a nice ride this afternoon on the small roads of the Vexin natural park 50 kms from Paris.
    By chance I found this nice classical style castle.

    It looks like the castle of Moulinsart owned by captain Haddock in the Tintin Comics....

    There seems to be a nice park with a tennis court and a big farm.
    It is privately owned so no way to visit.
