The childhood home of a famous French novelist does not mean much to the average English tourist. The chateau appears very gloomy and austere from the outside, but do not let this put you off. Included in the entrance price is a guided tour (available in English) around the inside which reveals a softer home and interesting stories - I will not give anything away just make sure you stop by if in the area.
You can combine the visit with the weekly Monday market in the village all walking distance from the chateau.
