We were visiting Pithiviers close by, and happened across this castle in the middle of a very picturesque town. The entrance fee is 5 euros for an unguided visit with a brochure containing details. It was very interesting and worthwhile.

Yèvre-le-Châtel is only 100 kms from Paris. The 13th century fort is open to visitors every day from April 1 to November 1 between 2 and 6 pm. Charge is 5 euros for adults and 3 euros for children between 3 and 15. Guided tours can be booked in advance by calling Les Compagnons de La Châtellenie at +33238342591. This wonderful example of medieval military architecture is complemented with gardens of some 150 medicinal plants. The entrance fee serves to pay the gardeners who keep the village full of flowers. The village boasts 2 more national landmarks, St Lubin and St Gault. This picture postcard village is a must whether on a day trip from Paris or on your way to the Loire Valley.

My wife-to-be and I went to this village, as recommended by our driver/guide, for our pre-wedding photoshoot. For city dwellers like us, it is one of the most beautiful village we have been to. The absence of skyscrapers and heavy traffic was a very stark contrast to us. Pristine, quiet, tranquil, peaceful. This is an mental and emotional oasis for us, a break from our hectic lifestyle. In fact, we were jokingly discussing the possibility of migrating to live. Yèvre-le-Châtep most certainly do justice to the title of being one of the "most beautiful villages in France". A definite to-go place if you are driving around France.

Hard to find, Yèvres le Chatel is a small village near Pithiviers, about 150 kilometers from Paris. The twelfth century fort is only open to the public for festivals but worth walking around, as the small streets of the village are a riot of flowers. Yèvres has been selected as one of the 100 most beautiful villages of France. At the entrance of village the ruins of the Saint Lubin church are enchanting. the ruins has been consolidated to be safe for visitors. It has no more roof, no more doors, and a green carpet of grass has replaced the floor tiles.
