Chateau Cnenonceau - Part III

Adjacent to Chateau Chenonceau was the support village.
A mock-up hospital ward was set up in a building like it would have looked in WWI when the chateau served as a hospital. More gorgeous flowers.

It was towards the end of the day when we walked through this part of the chateau estate. No people around. Looks like a tower from a nursery rhyme.

There was a fabulous little duck pond. I had never seen this breed of duck...perfect colors for my Alaska house.

In keeping with the WWI hospital theme...vintage auto garages. 

And adorable little cottages...

so quiet and picturesque.

Behind the little village were large gardens.

This must be where they get some of those beautiful flowers for the chateau.

And some donkeys to cart all that "stuff."

I do wish the weather had been a bit sunny but at least we weren't having rain.
One more chateau in the tour.
