Chateau d'Usse

What? There is a chateau that is really from a fairy tale? Well, le Pocket Pacy and I must see this place!

Yes, this castle was the inspiration for Charles Perrault's fairy tale of the Sleeping Beauty!
Sleeping Beauty statue

Which the owners have decided to capitalize on:

There is a Sleeping Beauty Tower you can go see!

at the top of the tower there is a glassed in tableau of...
La belle au bois dormant!
It is actually quite funny! Ah, the French! Their line between romance and cheese is different than Americans. Perhaps that is why the fromage is so good here, though...

I don't think Prince Charming and Le Belle would mind the company of  Pocket Pacy, do you?

this convenient place in the stone wall was too good to pass up!

Pocket Pacy, La Belle dans la Poche!
