Fountainbleu, Isle de France
Built by my man Francois I as a hunting shack.

Everyone talks about Versaille, but to my mind, Fountainbleu is much more livable. The rooms are no less opulent, incredible and so on, but somehow they're also comfortable.

My favorite rooms: The ballroom with the marquetry floor and the library which is immense and sumptuous.
