“Fabulous chateau for those with a car”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 January 2012

We enjoyed our scenic drive to Chateau Fougeres-sur-Bievre. This was one of our favorite chateau - well-restored, medieval fortifications, models demonstrating building techniques and NO crowds. We were there early July and shared the chateau with only one other family. Fascinating exhibits covered such topics as building an arch, tiling a roof and half-timbered construction. Explanations were only in French, but the exhibits were understandable. Great information in the English language pamphlet.
