This is one underrated chateau by Loire Valley standards. It is so well-designed and well-built it looks beautiful at any particular angle. Because it is situated on top of the hill, it has a commanding view of the Loire river and valley. The drawback is the steep climb to the top with a distance of about a third of the olympic running track. The rewards however is worth the climb. The gardens are lovely. The Lebanese cedar trees- wow! I've never seen trees that are so enormous and wide, bearing gigantic cones that are practically hanging from every twig and branch. The castle itself has strong bones, structurally powerful-looking with its unique turrets. And like most of the chateaux in the area, it has a lot of history with the likes of Nostradamus a guest here. Don't miss the impressive horse stables that contains apparently the largest saddle collection at that time by any single house of nobility.
