This is a very attractive chateau nearish to Chinon in attractive countryside which has been taken on by a couple with a view to restoring it and returning it to better times but with a contemporary twist . However the gardens seemed a bit unkempt although to be fair not many flowers were out as it is still early in the season . The garden is full of modern artworks- sculptures , gnomes an old fireplace , a wooden tower with a view - all very unusual !
There is a short film in the stables about the Hundred Years War with English subtitles , a history of the chateau on boards in English too set up in the old wine press ,
The chateau itself is a strange mix - part history part modern art exhibition . Just 5 rooms which manage to cram in a multitude of the beautiful the bizarre and the totally incomprehensible
Entry is 10 euros . There is a cafe open at lunchtime which we didn't try
All in all not the best chateau or garden unless you really are interested in modern art but maybe worth a visit if you are nearby and have seen the other nearby chateaux
