ENG Hello my dear! Today finally I have found time to tell you small story about one of the most famous and beautiful swiss attractions which TripAdvisor included into Top 10 Must Visit Places in Switzerland — Chillon Castle, or Chàteau de Chillon in french.
This stunning romantic castle is situated in the french part of Switzerland, Montreux. Historical details you can get HERE, it is already well written before me =) And all important info and more beautiful pics is on the website of castle. I will tell just my impressions and some travel tips.
So, this trip was planned for my birthday by my dear husband, he knows that I adore everything about architecture, Middle ages and especially castles! It was short week-end escape with one night in the luxury hotel just to have over look at Montreux itself (about this lovely place i ll write another post) and as main attraction to visit a castle (with tons of amazing pics of course! I wanted so much to practice my new Canon babe).
We went from Zürich in the morning, it took about 4 hours to drive, checked in to the hotel in late afternoon and went to enjoy sunny +15 outside walking along Geneva Lake. I show you below couple of pics that you can imagine how lovely was the weather!…View from hotels balcony where I showing the castle — so clear to see it!…
But everything changed next morning.
We woke up in the dream like place — beautiful 5***** room, Geneva Lake and Swiss Alps outside , I pictured our empty champaign bottle for memories =) And then fairy tale was over — mountains simply dissapered in the FOG…It came from other side of the lake and swallowed our gorgeous view like an ash of Vesuvius Pompeu…Shock!
I had a last hope driving towards the castle, but with every meter was absolutely clear that tons of colorful pics will stay only in my dreams — castle was safety сovered by ominous fog.. Tja!
So, it was february and you are warned now how changeable weather can be over there! And of course fog came not alone, but with very unpleasant wet COLD. Ufff! It took about 2 hours to run very quickly across all 50(!) rooms of Castle with a break in the coffee shop (oh, how happy we were to discover it there!)
What can I tell you in the end — in any case Chillon Castle was absolutely gorgeous, fog made it very mysterious, and now I own very seldom foggy pics of this Castle! Google it, you will understand =)
Thank you for reading loves! Good night!
