I loved the kitchen at Chateau de Villandry almost as much as the kitchen at the Chateau de Chenonceau.  It is the only rustic room in the Chateau with a terracotta tiled floor, large fireplace, and exposed masonry.  It contains all of the elements of a kitchen from the early 20th Century including an oak table, copper pots and pans, and a roasting spit.

  1. What I wouldn’t give for a kitchen like this. Yes, I’m the cook of the family. My wife cleans up after me. I think she has the more difficult job! Beautiful shot with the sunlight through the windoes.

    • I’m with you about the kitchen. Isn’t it gorgeous?!?!? I would live in there.

      And although I love my hubby more than my life itself, I often wish I had a wife like yours when I’m in the kitchen. 🙂

  2. I want a kitchen like this! 🙂 nice shot!

  3. The French know copper pans! I love that you’re including this kinds of shots and not just the finery. I also like the light on the floor and it has me curious about the windows and the view.

    • Melanie, maybe copper pans are the secret to EVERYTHING turning out so well in a French kitchen?!? I just envision Julia Child in something not that far from this!

      Thanks so much for your encouragement!

      P.S. For a glimpse of the view, check out all of the Chateau de Villandry garden shots. That’s the view, and the gardens were so amazing!

      • Well, I certainly have a lusty wish list of copper pans that I hope to have one day.

        I’ve loved the different views you’ve posted; I haven’t been to France in 20 years and have lived vicariously through your photos.

      • Oh Melanie, I’m so glad you found the pictures fun! 🙂

  4. I want a kitchen like this how?


I love hearing from you!
