Here's a thought: stay in the Hotel Campanile North of Paris, France, near Ecouen. Not very interesting, but clean and comfortable, and reasonably priced. Get up early next morning, and after breakfast at the hotel, walk (or ask the hotel to call you a taxi) over to the Château d'Ecouen. It's free the first Sunday of every month, and many other days, too! Like most museums just outside of Paris proper, the price of entry drops dramatically! Get out your cash or credit cards -- best museum boutique ever this year (March, 2010)! This is a huge Medieval Museum. Something for everyone here! There's a great restaurant for a long French lunch -- what a setting! Some rooms are not open -- they cannot afford to open it all. Look at more after lunch, then go back to the hotel, and do late check-out and move on! Check out my YouTube channels, SLOBOMOTION and CUTECATFAITH. Lisa B. Falour, the merry mad artist, shows you her world!
