Paris, Loire Valley, Normandy, extension to London

What's the difference between a grand palais in Paris and a breathtaking château in the French countryside?

It's a careful distinction made by the French language, one of the many nuances that become clear when you traverse the country's rich culture and history - from the galleries of the (Palais du) Louvre to the awe-inspiring château at Amboise and Chenonceau deep in the Loire Valley.
