a night at Admiral de Grasse's chateau

On our way from Provence to Italy, we spent a night in a town called Bar-sur-Loup, at the Chateau de Grasse. It's a family run hotel in the ancestral home of Admiral de Grasse.

 For history buffs, Admiral de Grasse was the French admiral who bottled up the English forces at the Battle of Yorktown, allowing the Americans under Washington to win. It turned out to be the last battle of the American Revolution. 

The views from our rooms were amazing. (do you see Mark's head poking out on the left?)
We enjoyed meeting Henri, who runs the place with his parents


Before we left, Mark and the kids had fun with the statue of Admiral de Grasse.
