We came upon this hidden gem on our way back to our rented cottage in the town of Loches, when we stumbled pass this impressive chateau. Totally passed it but upon looking at our rear view mirror, BOOM! It was right there impressively sitting on the crest of the road, without tall walls to hide from the road. We had... More

This lovely little chateau feels like a family - you or me - could live in it. The scale is lovely. The rooms have been carefully furnished. We especially liked the kitchen, with all of its copper pots. The equestrian-related exhibits were fun. All in all, one of the nicer Loire chateaux.

The castle is a little less known, and a little younger than some of the other castles in the loire valley. Despite that, it has a beautifully preserved rooms. We were especially charmed by the study. You are free to walk inside and around the premise and there is even a forest walk with a quiz for the children. The... More

Small, lovely Chateau! Surrounded by wonderful landscape, not overcrowded, a lot to see as the castle is fully equipped!

There has been a chateau on this site since the time of Charlemagne. The current chateau's exterior is typical of the 17th century. The inside of the chateau is strictly 19th century, reflecting the tastes of the time and the owner, Jean Baptiste de la Motta of St. Pierre. Throughout the 19th and 20th centuries, the chateau was an active... More

When I drove through this area, suddenly I noticed this chateau appeared in the end of the road curves. It does looks stunning from the road and it is enough to make me stop and decided to come inside after taking a lot of pictures from outside. Inside there is really nothing special, it is even flat to be honest... More

Our family were renting a gite about 15 miles away, I visited this on my own as husband and kids were suffering from Chateau Overload (how can you see too many chateaux I cried?!) It was terrific, I loved how it is just suddenly there, at the side of the road as someone else mentioned. The interior is lovely, mostly... More

We came across this charming chateau after visiting Chenonceau. What a wonderful surprise. The hunting themes and memorabilia of their life style is amazing. The interior of the main building is equally intriguing. I note the tapestries newly hung on the walls are beyond doubt the best preserved I've seen, and mainly because the ancestral owners had stored them away... More

This is an imposing chateau that sits on the very edge of a public road. The reason for its placement,is that it stands guard over the royal route to Spain. The oldest element here is the tall, circular donjon at the western end complete with a walk-walk and machicolations. But what is particularly striking is the height of the four... More

A little treat just sitting on the side of the highway. All of a sudden the chateau appeared as if from nowhere. Very pretty. Not a great castle but very nice.
