Château des Sept Tours:
Elizabeth snapped the photo shown above of the beautiful castle, Château des Sept Tours, in 2005 when she and her husband spent the night in one of the tower bedrooms in the chateau, now a private golf hotel located in the Loire Valley. Enchanted by the experience, she chose a night photo of the chateau, taken by her husband, for the watercolor design of the Silk or Sugar book cover.
In the fourteenth century, the three-tower manor house, Chateau du Vivier, was renovated and enlarged. Middle Age and Renaissance architectural features were added to impress and showcase the wealth of its owners. During the nineteenth century, a succession of owners updated and added in-vogue architectural elements to the house. Today, the Chateau des Sept Tours is a wonderful example of neo-Gothic architecture.
