"Sometimes, especially when I'm walking through the nearby town of Bussy-le-Grand, I get the feeling that I've been unwittingly transported into a fairy tale book. It might have something to do with the fact that none of the buildings here are built from flimsy materials like wood. Or maybe it's the castle I see when I look out my window."
