During the evening, a shuttle service was set up to drive all guests to their hotel safely, of course.

It’s time to go to sleep a bit to keep going with the 3rd wedding day in a French Riviera Castle.

    Sunday

    The festivities are not over. In the late morning, guests are drived back to the castle to enjoy a brunch in the gardens under a mild April sun.

    Mid-afternoon, it’s time to leave the castle that has welcomed us so well during these few days and take the road to Marseille.

    I hope that the guests will leave each by plane / train or other means of transport with good memories in mind.
