Favorite ice cream flavors

Mint chocolate chip, rocky road, green tea

My strange place is not only the Place de la Concord where Marie Antoinette lost her head, but also her Hamlet where she played peasant with her lady’s companions. This beautiful getaway became a workable farm that eventually supplied the King’s kitchens. This village was fashioned after a true Norman village. With 11 houses, and a big lake strangely there was only 5 houses that were reserved for the use of the Queen and her guests: the Queen’s house, Billiard Room, Boudoir, Mill and Refreshments Dairy. Four houses were reserved for the occupancy of peasants: the farm and its annexes, the Barn, the Dovecote and Preparation Dairy. 

Unfortunately the Queen’s house is under construction so I could not go in there but if one is not paying attention while walking then the Hamlet merely looks like a beautiful and serine village that the servants of the main castle would have live in and that is indeed partially true. 

Each house has its own garden that are beautifully manicured. They have herbs and flowers, and vegetables just as the peasants of Queen Marie Antoinette kept her gardens before she lost her head.
