the "Tangled" castle in real life!

Who doesn't love a good Castle?

Does it get any better than this?

"Mont St. Michel in Normandy, France, inspired our castle in “Tangled.” It sits out in the bay surrounded by water and feels so very fairy tale-like. When I visited it I knew this has to be the kingdom that Rapunzel will someday be Queen of.-GLEN KEANE

Just below the castle there's a small village filled with hotels, creperies and dreamy lights to guide the way..

The island of Mont Saint-Michel has inspired the likes of:

- the castle in Disney's "Tangled"

- the city Minas Tirith in "Lord of the Rings: Return of the King"

- French Composer Claude Debussy ("Clair De Lune") who frequented the island often

 This castle is only 100 kilometers from the D-Day beaches (see this post!)

P.S- Do I even have to say that this was one of the best days of my life?!
