I waited 44 years from first passing by Chateau Chillon until I was given the opportunity to visit> For 44 years I had built an idea of what this romantic chateau would be like - and I was not disappointed! n fact it excelled my expectations. And in the vaults to see how the building work started was just built directly onto the rock outcrop in the cellars was for me a very strong feel of the history of this amazing chateau.And the vaulting was just made using a wooden templates, stunning. Don't wait as long as I had to wait to rave about this place!
