I'm an avid fan of castles and old houses, so this just suits my taste. You have captured the interesting shape of the building, with its cone topped turrets as well as giving us lots of details about its situation.
I do like how you have included trees, in the f/g, to funnel viewers into the scene as well as giving depth.
Have a great day,

Joli point de vue sur ce château médiéval particulièrement bien conservé, ses jardins bien entretenus, et les topiaires décoratives. Le soleil lui donne un bel éclat et l'édifice ressort magnifiquement sur le fond de ciel bleu. Un joli fleuron de notre patrimoine culturel.

A beautiful building, and your choice of viewpoint is perfect to highlight its shaped, in particular those conical roofs are very appealing. I like that you included the stairway and part of the gardens too. The light is perfect!
Tanks for sharing.
