On en prend plein la vue
Published over a year ago
Superbe spectacle à ne pas manquer si vous êtes dans la région. On a commencé la journée au château de Chambord (avec piquenique sur la pelouse, magique !) puis visité le château de Blois l'après-midi. Après le dîner, le spectacle a été la cerise sur le gâteau même si les enfants étaient un peu fatigués ! Beaucoup d'espace et à l'air libre, donc aucun problème de distanciation.
