Although built at the same time of the great castles in the Loire valley, Talcy remains untouched by the popular Italian style and its love of decoration. The wells, outhouses including press and dovecote and the garden all emphasize the rural nature of the estate. The castle has retained its interior decoration and furniture from the 18th century.

A small interesting chateau in a peaceful rural setting. The dovecote and wine press were particularly intriguing. Whist we enjoyed strolling in the gardens, they are rather in need of a little TLC.

What a pleasure to discover that small chateau a little way away from the larger chateaux where the "big" aristocracy resided. Ronsard spent a little time in Talcy which gives another type of appeal to the castle.
