A thing of beauty

Advantages: Beautiful building, beautiful setting
Disadvantages: None

I've always found the phrase "Châteaux de la Loire" a bit of a misnomer. You could pick any stretch of tens of miles between Orléans and Saumur, tool along by car or in a boat, and be forgiven for saying at the end of it, "So where are all the châteaux?" ...
