after our time on the amalfi coast, we flew back to france for the final leg of our trip in paris. we rented a car (p.s. word to the wise: don’t book through auto europe, they added on so many taxes and fees and it cost us way too much to rent a car for 24 hours) and drove out to the chantilly forest to spend the night at the beautiful tiara chateau hotel mont royal. it poppped up on trip advisor when were planning our hotels and we thought staying in a chateau could be kind of cool. the property was stunning and the service was excellent. one night there was just what we needed. we lounged, went on some walks through the forest, relaxed in the spa, ate lots of baguettes & cheese, and ended the day with some nightcaps in their exquisite bar, le stradivarius. it was the perfect place to recharge for our final days exploring paris!
